Daredevil star Charlie Cox revealed he turned down other roles because he and the cast were waiting for the fourth season of the Netflix series.
It turns out that the cast members of Netflix’s Daredevil were as eager for the fourth season of the Marvel series as much as the show’s fans, as Charlie Cox revealed that he turned down work because he thought he would’ve been getting ready to return to Hell’s Kitchen. The star spoke to ComicBook.com about the disappointment over the show’s cancellation, explaining that he thought the cast would’ve been preparing for filming.
“I mean, we all thought we were going. You know, I turned down jobs, ’cause I thought we were shooting and we were getting ready for it.”
The Daredevil star explained that he’d spoken to showrunner Erik Olesen and Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb about what was ahead for Matt Murdock in the fourth season and he was really excited to see where the story was going. He followed up by saying that it was a shock to hear about the cancellation and he still isn’t sure who’s to blame about the Netlflix show’s ending.
“I had a brief conversation with Erik and Jeph about what was planned and that kind of sucks, ’cause I was really excited, you know, as we all were. It was a real shock. I don’t know who’s to blame, just, you know, because sometimes, politics, stuff happens, I probably don’t to this day know what was going on behind the scenes.”
