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:
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 stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Joanne Whalley, Jay Ali, Wilson Bethel, Stephen Rider, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk.
Daredevil is now available on Netflix.

What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click “Next” to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes’ (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as “MJ” that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter’s motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter’s secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she’s aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won’t be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a “brothers in arms” dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio’s Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
“The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There’s no one more professional than him.”
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
