Daredevil's Charlie Cox Talks About The Road To The Defenders


In case you haven't noticed, whether in the comics or in Netflix's Daredevil series, Matt Murdock doesn't necessarily play well with others.

The thing is, though, he's going to have to learn, because sooner or later Marvel is going to pull the trigger on their Defenders series, featuring Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Daredevil, and he won't have a choice.

In a recent interview with EW, Charlie Cox touched on if season two is Daredevil's way of working the kinks out so to speak.

“I think quite possibly, but I don’t think he has any knowledge of that. I don’t think that he could even fathom that that is a possibility."

One of the roadblocks to a team-up is that he would have to actually rely on other people, something that DD doesn't do on a regular basis.

“Something that’s very tricky for Matt is to allow anyone to help him. He finds it impossible to ask for help, for a number of reasons. One he doesn't want to endanger the people he loves, but also because he has an arrogance about him. A self-confidence and a belief I believe in his own invincibility, which is false.” Cox said. “One of the lessons that he’s going to have to learn this season is that he needs other people, he needs help, we all need help.”

Well, he needs to figure that out, because I need to see this team happen, so the sooner he gets on board the better.

    dysfunctional heroes forced by necessity to band together to save the world (or NYC at least). sounds like a story arc to me. give it time for all the characters to be fleshed out on Netflix, then it will work.

  1. I hope that Patsy Walker becomes Hellcat and she is one of the Deffenders !! followed by Valkyrie !!!

    Looking forward to this...but really despise the costume.

  2. I keep hearing rumors about Blade and Ghost Rider eventually coming to Netflix.

  3. They are working on Blade, currently the comics are about his daughter and they are building to a team up. There are talks to make a new trilogy with a female, and Wesley Snipes, and have the story coincide with the comics.Ghost Rider, there are talks but it seems he might be part of Defenders as an enemy and possibly team up (like Punisher in DD season 2) or something.
