Charlie Cox Reacts To ‘Daredevil’ Cancelation: ‘I’m Very Saddened’

Daredevil MarvelIn Marvel’s hit Netflix series Daredevil, Charlie Cox has played the titular character for four and a half years. As the blind lawyer Matt Murdock, Cox brought vigilante justice to the streets of Hell’s Kitchen with superhuman senses as his alter ego, Daredevil. However, when the show was abruptly canceled, he admits that he never saw it coming.

But, Cox was not the only one. Writers were already hard at work, imagining possible plotlines for season 4. Yet, it is Cox, as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, who most felt the weight of having to lay the baton down for good. Cox told Entertainment Weekly:

“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.”

Without question, Cox openly admits his love for the role, even calling it his “Dream job.” However, when asked if there is a chance he would return to the role, he was quick to avoid starting any rumors that could unfairly raise the hopes of fans.

Despite the pains of having to let the popular Netflix show go, he was sure to let EW know how much he would love to suit up as Daredevil once again. Hopefully, Cox and his great cast of co-stars will get their chance to bring their characters to life once again.

Daredevil season 3 stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Wilson Bethel, Jay Ali, and Lesley Ann Warren.

Missing for months, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) reemerges a broken man, putting into question his future as both vigilante Daredevil and lawyer Matthew Murdock. But when his archenemy Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is released from prison, Matt must choose between hiding from the world, or embracing his destiny as a hero.

Daredevil Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we learn it.

‘Captain Marvel’ Funko Toys Confirm Carol Danvers’ Cat Will Appear

Previous1 of 16

Captain Marvel Brie Larson Carol Danvers Kevin FeigeWith just about four months away from the release of Captain Marvel, Funko has now revealed its upcoming line of Pop! Vinyl Figures that are tied-in to the highly-anticipated film that features Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the titular heroine and perhaps the most powerful character in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The reveal of this new line of Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures show off some of the characters set to appear in the film, one of which includes Carol Danvers’ feline companion Goose the Cat.

The name of our heroine’s cat may come as a surprise to fans of the comics because in previous incarnations, Captain Marvel’s cat is named Chewie and is actually part of the Flerken species.

You can check out two collectible Funko figures of Goose the Cat in the gallery down below. You can start viewing the images by clicking “Next”.

Are you excited to see Carol Danvers’ Goose the Cat in the film? What do you make of the new name choice instead of Chewie? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news in the MCU.

Here is the synopsis for the film:

Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.  Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.

Captain Marvel will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019.

  • SAMURAI36.

    Not my favorite Marvel film, but yeah it was pretty serviceable.

    • Carl

      Man of Steel was serviceable. Dr. Strange was straight up quality film. Also, you hate all Marvel films so you don’t even have a favorite. lol

      • SAMURAI36.

        Haha agree to disagree then. Both have their positives and negatives for sure. Regardless, Dr Strange still ranks higher than Iron Man 2 at least for me. So that’s something. Captain America Winter Soldier will always be my favorite though.

        • Carl

          Wow, is this really the same Sammy?

          • Thanostic

            Hey, legitimate dialogue – I like it! I think Dr Strange and MOS were both quite good.

          • Justin Jules

            Mind officially blown.

          • Math

            No. This one has a dot at the end of his name. It’s pretty funny. I think I prefer this guy over the real Sammy though. 😉

          • Carl

            Yeah I figured it out too. The other one is an awful person but I don’t condone petty impersonation either. Marquis DC Sade is impersonating Marquis De Sade on here too.

  • Bill

    They’ve made plenty of bad movies

    • Carl

      None I’ve seen.

  • Chris Redfield

    Haven’t made a bad movie? Hmmm, let’s check. IM 2 & 3, Thor 1 & 2, Avengers AoU, Civil War… oh and that one movie in which heroes hold hands and defeat the bad guy. No, looks like they have no bad movies. Marvelous!

    • Carl

      That’s right, no bad movies. Honestly no one is going to take you seriously if you say thing like that especially when you throw shade at universally beloved films like Civil War and GotG.

      • Chris Redfield

        Well, I can certainly tell you, nothing will ever top Captain America WS. That movie was perfect. I’m not a complete marvel hater, but they have made bad movies. It’s just a fact. And yes, DC’s track record is abysmal, still hoping they’ll change it for the better somewhere down the road.

        • Carl

          Marvel Studios has not made one bad movie. All were received well by critics / fans and were financially successful. (Incredible Hulk being the only one that wasn’t a box office hit, not a flop either)

          • Chris Redfield

            It’s outright ignorant to even say they haven’t made a bad movie, because certainly they did. You’re just biased, and this is where I’ll end this pointless conversation with you, and any future ones.

          • Carl

            It’s outright ignorant to even say they have made a bad movie. You don’t have to like them all but they are all good quality films.

          • Math

            I personally agree with Carl on this one. I don’t think they’ve made a bad movie. They’ve certainly made averaged ones, sure, but I wouldn’t call any of them bad. But all this is a matter of personal taste. You might have found some of them bad, but that doesn’t mean the majority of people will agree with you.

  • Steve Steve

    Feige and the other editors have rescued a couple films. Someday there will either be an unsavable film or Feige will leave/retire.

    On the other hand, the first bad Pixar film was conceived, written, and directed by John Lasseter… The same guy who conceived, wrote, and directed: Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, and Toy Story 3…
