The sudden axing of “Marvel’s Daredevil” on Netflix the other week still has people reeling, but those involved in the project have remained pretty quiet about it bar the writers and producers who’ve discussed their surprise.
Now the show’s main star Charlie Cox has finally stepped forward and offered his take on its abrupt. In a statement to Entertainment Weekly he said:
“A lot of us really expected to keep going, and I certainly did. The truth is, I felt like we had a lot of stories to tell, and although I understand [the cancellation], I’m very saddened by that. It’s just how business works. But also, these characters mean a lot to people. It’s weird to think there’s a chance I won’t be playing Matt Murdock ever again. That’s a bizarre feeling because that character has been such a huge part of my life for the last four and a half years.”
Writers had already begun laying the groundwork for the next season which Cox was keen to be involved in but sadly it won’t happen and he can’t offer any details. He would be open to returning to the character, saying: “Oh my God, yeah. I don’t know how this would happen, but maybe one day we could pick up the baton and do it again.”
