At The Theory of Everything premiere last night, actor Charlie Cox spoke of his upcoming role as Matt Murdock in Marvel's upcoming Daredevil Netflix series.
"It's great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility," he told reporters. "I wasn't really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to Comic Con last week, and it's really important to a lot of people. It really is. I'm having a great time."
He then went on to discuss his process in researching the character and what fans of the comic can expect from the upcoming series. "I've read comics after comics after comics — I've never read so many comics in my life, and we're finding moments from the comics to reference in the show," he explained. "We're trying to make a show that's new and much, much darker than anything I've ever seen Marvel do before."
What exactly is it about the beloved blind lawyer that the "darker" series will bring to light in a new way? Cox told THR: "The concept that he can't stop," he noted The Hollywood Reporter. "He's going out and he's taking the law into his own hands, and he doesn't know if he can stop."
Cox smiled while concluding, "He might be addicted to it."
Coming to Netflix in 2015, [Daredevil](movie:47230) also stars Rosario Dawson, Deborah Ann Woll, Toby Leonard Moore, Bob Gunton, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Ayelet Zurer, Elden Henson and Vincent D'Onofrio.
