Why Matt Murdock Is No Longer DAREDEVIL When THE DEFENDERS Begins

Daredevil star Charlie Cox talks here about why Matt Murdock has given up being The Man Without Fear when The Defenders kicks off and what he's been doing in the meantime. The answer may surprise you!

Things were looking bleak for Matt Murdock when Daredevil season two ended. His law partner Foggy Nelson had parted ways with him, Elektra had been murdered by The Hand, and Wilson Fisk had sworn revenge on the hero. Matt also revealed his secret identity to Karen Page but when The Defenders kicks off, some time will have passed and The Man Without Fear is no longer protecting Hell's Kitchen. 

It doesn't sound like Matt's decision to unmask has paid off and Elektra's demise has clearly left him unable to hit the streets and fight crime as he normally would; that leave's Daredevil's future in doubt.

"At the end of Daredevil season two, everyone failed," actor Charlie Cox explains. "Matt failed, and the consequences were devastating. Six or so months have passed, and he’s had to completely reevaluate everything that he believes, everything that he does. And he’s decided to hang up the suit, as it were. He’s focusing all of his energies on being a pro bono lawyer. And I don’t think he has any interest, really, in being Daredevil anymore." So, what brings Daredevil back to Hell's Kitchen?

We'll have to wait and see but we know he'll be crossing paths with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Trailers for The Defenders have shown Matt wearing both a makeshift costume and his classic suit so he clearly decides to head back into action to take down The Hand and attempt to save Elektra...
