Charlie Cox Believes ‘Daredevil’ Would Fit In With ‘The Avengers’ Despite Series Darker Tone

daredevil-elektra-promoWhile production schedules might make it a bit difficult, fans are hoping to one day see some of Marvel’s television characters make the leap to the big screen eventually. However, some wonder if these character would fit in with their big screen counterparts due the darker tone of the Netflix projects. Well, series start Charlie Cox believes that Matt Murdock would fit right in with The Avengers. While speaking with ComicBook.com, the actor had the following to say on the subject.

Some people have said that they wonder about, based on the tone the show, how Matt would fit in with the Avengers. I was reading Civil War the other day, and Matt Murdock… is kind of an ass. He’s in the back, standing around grumpy a lot of the time, and every now and again, he just says ‘Well, we’re not doing that’ or something to that effect, and I’m like, ‘That’s the character, we’re fine.’ So tonally, with Matt I think we’re right on point and he’d be a perfect fit in the larger MCU.

When asked which member of the team he’d likely have a relationship with, Cox quickly answered with “Black Widow” which is something that might make fans of Frank Miller’s run very happy to hear. What do you think about Cox’s comments? Sound off with your thoughts below.

Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.

Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.

Daredevil Season Two will be available to stream on Netflix starting on March 18, 2016.

I write stuff. Sometimes.

    I feel like it is going to happen eventually. With Infinity War getting 2 movies it’s hard to believe they won’t be able to fit the Netflix characters in.

    • Bjax

      Especially since we have a long way before Infinity War happens. I’m so tired of the excuse of schedules. You hear about actors shooting a couple of movies where one overlaps, and they work out the schedule. Since this is all connected and under the same parent company, there really shouldn’t be any excuse with scheduling conflicts.

      • Vegas82

        We are basically one year from them beginning production, two from the release. I wouldn’t call that a long way.

        • Shawn Micheal Madden

          While I’m all for them popping up, the only thing people don’t realize is that it’s very likely that Infinity War and Defenders might be filming around the same time.

        • Bjax

          I simply meant it seems like it’s far off enough for them to coordinate schedules.

      • Carl

        The problem isn’t scheduling conflicts it’s writing them into the story. You’ll get about 2 seasons of a tv show in the time it takes to get 1 movie. Putting the Netflix characters in means knowing where these characters will be for Season 2 of Jessica Jones, Season 1 of Luke Cage, Season 1 of Iron Fist and possibly more seasons, all of which aren’t finished yet.

        It’s a complicated feat that I hope they can pull off.

        • Bjax

          I wasn’t actually thinking of ALL the Netflix Marvel characters. Since the article was about Daredevil, I was referring to just him making an appearance. Because you’re right, that’s a tall order to be able to incorporate all of them…unless they specifically hold off on new seasons until they do an Avengers film and can write stories post Avengers appearance.

  • Axxell

    Tone should not be a problem; just because the series is darker doesn’t mean they need to show Daredevil covered in blood every time.

  • capwulf

    One problem…that wasn’t Daredevil. It was Iron Fist in DD’s suit.

  • breakerbaker

    On some level, I’m sure they could make it work. Tone isn’t really the issue. The issue, as always in this situation, is finding a way in which the movies can acknowledge the show that doesn’t require the movie audience to be familiar with the show. Working DD (or any of the other Netflix stars) into the narrative of the larger MCU could work from a tonal perspective–it could even be the kind of thing that becomes a commentary in the show (either the Netflix stars criticizing the Avengers for being so high above everything, not getting their hands dirty–living in a highrise and avoiding the streets, etc., and/or the Avengers could look at the more morose characters from the Netflix show as being too gloomy.

    The trick, though, is that the show that should theoretically be the easiest to meld with the movies is AoS, and Marvel has shown very little inclination to bridge that gap, which you would think would need to come before they begin to think about the Netflix stars.
