Charlie Cox On His "Tight" Daredevil Costume


The first official images from Netflix's upcoming 13-episode Daredevil series have shown The Man Without Fear wearing a dark makeshift costume, but we know at some point in the series Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) will eventually wear his iconic red costume.

Charlie Cox ("The Theory Of Everything") attended the SAG Awards and was asked about his superhero suit. "It's pretty tight, I'm not going to lie," the British actor told E Online. "They've done such a great job. I can't wait for fans to really see it. But put it this way, there is no world where you change in a phone box. It takes four people and about 45 minutes."

Many actors who have worn superhero costumes like Ben Affleck ("Batman v Superman"), Andrew Garfield ("The Amazing Spider-Man") and Christian Bale ("Batman Begins") have been bothered by the restrictions of their suits as they make it difficult for them to take care of business when nature calls. Cox voiced that same concern. "They're very clever about it," said Cox. "You get three zippers. You zip them all up, but when you have to wee, you just have to zip one down—the wee zipper."

Marvel's Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.


Daredevil debuts on Netflix, April 10th.
