The Possibility of Matt/Daredevil Showing Up In a Marvel Film …..

Charlie has stated there is still not talk about the possibility of him taking Matt/Daredevil onto the big screen. Personally given the success of the show, I’d say Marvel would be insane not to transfer Charlie and the other actors into the larger cinematic universe. I mean you have Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page) and her background with True Blood, then Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) and his success with the Hunger Games films, then you have Elodie Yung (Elektra Nachios) and her big screen presence already established, then there’s both Ayelot Zuerer (Vanessa Marianna) and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) and their big screen successes, and who can’t believe that Jon Bernthal (Frank Castle/Punisher) aren’t big screen worthy? The entire cast and show are ready to make that transition. The show is that good. So come on Marvel, let’s bring Deredevil into that pantheon of our Earth’s Greatest Heroes.

Daredevil won’t show up in a Marvel movie, says actor Charlie Cox

The British actor says there has been “no conversation” about making the leap from Netflix to movies such as the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War”.

It doesn’t look as though Daredevil or any of Marvel’s TV heroes will show up in the comic book giant’s movies anytime soon. With “Captain America: Civil War” uniting a vast cast of big-screen heroes in just a matter of weeks, “Daredevil” star Charlie Cox has ruled out an appearance.

“There was no conversation about joining any of the movies,” the British star said, adding that he would jump at the chance to appear in a Marvel movie. “Who wouldn’t want to be in the highest-grossing film of all time?”

“Civil War” is already stuffed to bursting with Marvel heroes, as Captain America and Iron Man lead opposing factions into a superpowered dust-up. New faces include Black Panther and a new version of Spider-Man, so adding Daredevil into the mix might be a bit much. Still, we’ve got a lot of love for Daredevil and his pals on Netflix, and it would be fun to have the small-screen superheroes stretch their superpowers on the big screen at some point.

Cox was speaking on stage at a showcase event here in Paris held by Netflix, the streaming service that produces “Daredevil”. Netflix executives and actors from its shows are in France to spotlight new productions, including the company’s first French and British shows.

“Daredevil” was the first of four Netflix shows to feature a Marvel hero, followed by “Jessica Jones” which debuted last year, “Luke Cage”, which is due in September, and “Iron Fist”, which is currently in production. Once all four have aired, the heroes will unite as super-team The Defenders in an eponymous mini-series, also on Netflix.

Unless he shows up in “Luke Cage” or “Iron Fist” — and with an appearance in “Civil War” apparently ruled out — “The Defenders” will be the next time we’ll see Cox in costume, as the miniseries will arrive before series three of “Daredevil”.

Cox describes the various Marvel-Netflix series as “very different shows…I’m interested to know how tonally they will become one.”

Charlie & Elden Henson Answer Questions About “Daredevil”

Charlie and his DAREDEVIL co-star Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) attended the Wizard World Comic Con in St. Louis, and they answered questions about the show and whether Netflix will be producing a season three. Right now it’s undecided whether we’ll be getting a season three, but considering the massive success of season two….

Charlie Cox And Elden Henson Talk ‘Daredevil’ At Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con

Daredevil fans recently got a chance to ask series stars Charlie Cox and Elden Henson questions at Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con.

Those questions ranged from comments about the beard Henson sported at the Con to how the two actors believe the series will progress after its second season, which premiered on Netflix last month.

Season two of Daredevil saw Foggy, as portrayed by Henson, go through a huge transition, as he and Matt had a falling out and Foggy decided to strike out on his own. What’s in store for the future of that character?

“The truth is I don’t really know,” Henson said. “And that’s fine. So far, the writers have done a good job making all the characters feel like they have their own journey and not just there to help someone else’s story along. The truth is that I don’t really know what’s going to happen to Foggy, but I feel like it will probably be something good. I mean, they’ve done such a great job so far and it’s a pleasure to be able to work on the show. And as the scripts come in, I’m excited to read them. I trust them completely, so whatever happens I’m sure it will be good.”

Of course, that begs the question: will there be more Daredevil on Netflix? How will its characters play into Netflix’s planned series on The Defenders?

“Sadly, that’s a very easy question to answer because they tell us absolutely nothing,” Cox, the actor who portrays Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, said. “And to the point that I didn’t even know how season two was going to end up, like I was reading episodes as they come in. So with The Defenders, I know we’re going to do it, I have no idea who’s going to be showrunning it, I don’t know what the story’s going to be, I don’t know — other than the four Defenders, I don’t know what the characters are going to be involved in it.

“And we have no idea if we’re going to be commissioned for a season three. I mean, I think they wrote season two with the intention of something to kind of unfold in other seasons, but until that’s actually official, you know …”

Season two saw Daredevil finally sporting his superhero suit. Cox discussed some of the more fine details of wearing such a thing, including how the designers put a lot of thought and effort into making it comfortable and easy for him to put on, joking about one particularly important feature.

“It’s actually [a] really, really brilliant suit and it’s very comfortable,” Cox said. “I’ve got it down now to about 15 or 20 minutes and I can do almost all of it by myself. I need a little help with a couple of areas. The thing is I read — I don’t know if it’s true — that Christian Bale had trouble peeing in his suit, and so this was a discussion that we had. And they fixed it. They had three zippers, right? So you can effectively create a hole without having to take off the top part of it. This is stuff you have to think about.”

When a fan asked Henson about how responsible he felt about creating Foggy according to how that character appears in the comic books, he admitted that he had some wiggle room.

“In the comic books, he’s just a bumbling partner,” Henson said. “He was kind of that for a long time, so I thought, ‘cool, there’s a lot I can do with this character.’ I think that, you know, there’s a lot of people around to make sure that I’m getting it right. I mean I hope I do. He didn’t have a lot of background in the comics and stuff like that. And I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare — my son was just born when we started shooting the show, I had just come from Germany and [it was] kind of crazy. So I actually really relied on Charlie. Charlie is one of the most thoughtful people I’ve ever worked with.

“And I mean this in a positive way: he’s relentless in making sure things are right. So I feel like my job on the show, as well just in life, is sort of the same: I just try to do whatever I can to help the show along. Ultimately, at the end of the day, it’s his show. It’s a show about Daredevil, so I just want to be able to facilitate that.”

Season two of Daredevil introduced the Punisher to Hell’s Kitchen, and he is someone that Matt ends up spending a lot of time with. Because of the Punisher’s attitude that it’s totally OK to kill bad guys, Matt seems to start questioning his own no-kill policy. By the end of the season, this leaves Matt conflicted: where does he stand on the issue now?

“I don’t know that he even knows,” Cox said. “This is something that I kind of thought a lot about towards the end of the second season. There’s a scene with the Punisher, with Jon Bernthal’s character, and I believe Matt says something like, ‘maybe your way is OK.’

“Basically, that was the only way [for] him to acknowledge just the possibility that Matt was conceding to the idea that his way wasn’t working. I don’t think he’d ever believe that killing someone is the right way to go.”

Cox continued to explain that the show brought in some more complications by including villains that are essentially not human.

“I also think the question is a little bit confusing, because when you mention Elektra, all those guys — do we think of them in the same way that we think of other people? Because, obviously, they don’t seem quite human in the same way like the characters in the other storylines do.”

Cox admitted that Matt will have a lot of thinking to do in the future about this specifically moral dilemma.

“I think he’s going to have to reevaluate his stances and decide how he wants to operate.”
