Charlie Cox recently confessed he actually signed the online petition to revive the Daredevil series.
As you all may know, Marvel’s Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist series on Netflix were shut down some weeks ago. This left many of us broken-hearted as the series were setting up a Defenders universe much like the Marvel Cinematic Universe set up the Avengers. To be fair, Iron Fist never really took off and, let’s be honest, The Defenders series was somewhat weak. But we can safely say that at least they knew what to fix in order to change that.
Daredevil, on the other hand, was a completely different affair. It was the strongest series of the bunch and its cancellation was a big blow for fans. That’s why an online petition to Save Daredevil popped up soon after it. It was so popular that it produced other petitions in the same regard and a website called #SaveDaredevil appeared.
In an interview with The Playlist, the Matt Murdock/Daredevil interpreter Charlie Cox confessed he signed the first petition anonymously to prevent any potential backlash and even created a fake email for his daughter to sing it:
“Many people, myself included, were disappointed by “Daredevil’s cancellation.
Have you signed the petition?
Yes. I did this morning.
Oh, did you? I just found out about it the other day. My mom told me.
How about you? Have you had the chance to sign it yet?
I wasn’t sure about adding my email because I’m not very technically savvy, and I didn’t want to suddenly put my email online; I don’t know if it was visible or not. But what I did do is I made a fake email for my two-year-old daughter, and she signed it [laughter].”
Even though Cox and other thousands have signed the petition, it’s sad to say that it may not come into fruition. Disney and Marvel are preparing the Dinsey+ launch and they’re trying to avoid the mistakes made in the past with the MCU and the characters and franchises sold to other movie studios. In that sense, they’re slowly but surely canceling every show they have with Netflix and The Punisher and Jessica Jones may be next. It’s almost certain we’ll be seeing more of the Defenders in the future, but as to how or when we’ll see them, that’s anyone’s guess at this point in time.
Have you signed the Save Daredevil petition? Comment below! And go sign it if you haven’t!
Here’s the synopsis for Daredevil season 3:
