Daredevil’s Charlie Cox Knew What the Gold and Red Suit Would Mean to Fans
Charlie Cox shares his emotional response to learning he would be wearing an iconic Daredevil costume in She-Hulk, knowing how fans would react.
Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox, revealed he knows exactly what the gold and red suit would mean to fans the moment he saw the designs.
Cox shared in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes at D23 that he first saw the new outfit when he was preparing to play Matt Murdock/Daredevil for the first time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His MCU debut, which was a cameo appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home where Matt Murdock served as Peter Parker’s lawyer, did not call for a new Daredevil costume, but he is set to appear as the vigilante in an upcoming episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. “So I had to go to LA to have a fitting, and I walk in – I can say this now – I walk in. I knew I wasn’t going to wear it in [Spider-Man: No Way Home], I knew that much, but whilst we were doing Spider-Man we were getting ready to do She-Hulk, and so I got to go to LA to a fitting, and I walk in and the suit is hanging there. But then there’s a drawing on the wall and it has the gold and red.”
Cox shared that he instantly knew that that version of the costume would mean a lot to fans. “And I was like ‘no way,'” Cox laughed. “It’s funny because when you play the character this long, it’s like you’re emotionally connected to the fans’ response. So you see something like that and it means something to you, because you know what it means – what it’s going to mean,” he said.
Cox has been playing Daredevil since 2015, with a brief break between 2018, when Daredevil was canceled by Netflix, and his MCU debut in 2021. “Like, you start to have a sense of how people are going to respond to that. So I saw that, and then they come in with that, and I’m like ‘aw man, this is unreal’.”
The MCU is set to keep Cox busy for the next few years, as he will follow up his guest appearances in No Way Home and She-Hulk with the Echo series in 2023, and the Disney+ reboot of Daredevil, subtitled Born Again, which is set to premiere in 2024. He will also lend his voice to the animated series Spider-Man: Freshman Year.
New episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law are streaming on Disney+ every Thursday.
