The success of Netflix’s Daredevil and it’s renewal for a second season have cemented Matt Murdock’s status as a great small-screen hero in the MCU. However, in a recent conversation with IGN, Charlie Cox expressed his desire to see the blind superhero back on the big-screen in his own standalone movie:
“Yeah that would be awesome – I’d love to do that” he revealed. “I love doing the TV show and I love that we have so much more time to explore the origin story and real deal with character and inner conflict, and spend a lot of time brooding in that world and those feelings, which is unusual for a superhero.
“And usually when you’ve got a two-hour movie it’s action-packed, and so I think that’s one of the things that the show has really benefitted from – having that extra time to really get to know and sit with these characters and see them as humans. But I’d love to see Daredevil on the big screen again. It would be great. And if I could be involved with that I’d be thrilled.”
Cox would also love to appear in Captain America: Civil War, but principal photography is set to start fairly soon on the film and it’s possible he has missed out on that opportunity:
“Well he’s in the comics, but I think they’re already… I think I might have missed that boat… So unless someone watches the show and falls so madly in love with it that they decide to get me in for a day, that would be great, but I have no idea.”
Production schedules aside, a cameo might not be that difficult to make happen. The Russo brothers are behind the new Captain America movie and if they’re fans of the Netflix series, it could be possible to pull a few strings and give Daredevil some big-screen redemption — even if just for a moment or two.
