Charlie Cox Talks “Daredevil” Season 2

One of the best pieces of news this week was Netflix having confirmed that a second season of its Marvel series “Daredevil” has been given the go ahead. Shortly after that word broke, the show’s star Charlie Cox spoke with Empire about what might be in store for the second season and what villains could be on the way:

“I have to be careful because we just got commissioned so I have no idea who is going to turn up. Based on the show we’ve created, which is very grounded in reality, I’d like to see Punisher maybe show up, a little bit of Elektra maybe. I wouldn’t mind Black Widow making an appearance, and you can’t think about Daredevil for too long without thinking of Bullseye. I don’t know when or if or how that would happen, but it’d be cool if it did.”

The renewal means that the show’s second season, and the events within, will be hitting our screens before the proposed “The Defenders” mini-series. Cox has a rough idea of when that Defenders project might go ahead and when the second season of “Daredevil” begins shooting:

“We’ll begin shooting in the second half of the year. It’ll be the same timeline as the last show, so season two will come out about this time next year. Again, I’m imagining all this, but they’ll probably do Iron Fist or Luke Cage at the same time, followed by the other one [of the two] in the first half of 2016 and then maybe Defenders in the second half of 2016 or the beginning of 2017.”

Cox says he’s keen to get back into the red suit and getting a chance to really play the red-suited Daredevil next season: “What’s exciting is to have a season where [Matt Murdock] is really embodying his alter-ego before we get to the Defenders.”
