In an interview with marvel.commediated by Rachel Paige, Charlie Cox acknowledged that Daredevil fans were crucial in keeping the character from being completely scrapped.
The actor, who was originally cast to play lawyer Matt Murdock only in the Netflix series, has already made some guest appearances in the MCU with the same character and already has a new production to star in soon.
“Daredevil is such an amazing character. It was the great honor of my career to be offered this role and to be able to play it. I had so much fun with it. It changed my life irrevocably,” he said.
In the same interview, Cox argued that he is not on social media, but that he has already realized how impressive the strength of fans is in these mediums. After demolisher canceled after three seasons on Netflix, many viewers campaigned online for the show to be picked up by Marvel.
