DAREDEVIL Star Charlie Cox Talks About How Matt Murdock Will Relate To THE DEFENDERS
We're only two days away from the second season of Marvel's Daredevil blasting onto Netflix, and while there's been a lot written about The Punisher and Elektra, it's important not to forget about Matt Murdock in all of the excitement about the new additions to the cast.
Something that’s very tricky for Matt is to allow anyone to help him. He finds it impossible to ask for help, for a number of reasons. One, because he doesn’t want to endanger people that he loves, but also because he has an arrogance, he has a self-confidence and a belief, and I think at times a belief in his own invincibility. Which is false, that he can do it all by himself, and it’s very stubborn at times, very deluded at times.
One of the lessons that he’s going to have to learn this season is that he needs other people, he needs help, we all need help. And hopefully, that will therefore mentally prepare him for what’s coming, which is - and I don’t know what the dynamic of the Defenders will be - but if that is going to be a team-up, then he’s going to have to learn those lessons in Season 2. Hopefully.
We're still not clear about when exactly we'll see The Defenders unite on the small screen, or whether or not they'll ultimately appear in either part of Avengers: Infinity War, but things are moving along with Luke Cage getting a release date and Iron Fist finding a (somewhat controversial) leading man. It remains to be seen whether we'll get more seasons of these individual shows before The Defenders comes into being, but we'll be sure to keep you updated with the latest whenever we hear new info.
