Charlie Cox, the star of the Netflix original spectacular Daredevil, Cox serves as the series title character. The show is absolutely spectacular and I am very excited to see where the show will go on from here. In a recent interview with IGN, when asked about a possible Daredevil movie Cox had this to say
"Yeah that would be awesome – I’d love to do that. I love doing the TV show and I love that we have so much more time to explore the origin story and really deal with character and inner conflict, and spend a lot of time brooding in that world and those feelings, which is unusual for a superhero. And usually when you’ve got a two-hour movie, it’s action-packed, and so I think that’s one of the things that the show has really benefitted from – having that extra time to really get to know and sit with these characters and see them as humans. But I’d love to see Daredevil on the big screen again. It would be great. And if I could be involved with that, I’d be thrilled."
Could there be a possible Daredevil movie in the works? Marvel would most likely be open to this idea, but would they use Charlie Cox as Daredevil?
Daredevil and the Films are in the same universe
Marvel has no issues hiding the fact that Daredevil shares the same universe as the Films. With numerous references to The Avengers and the "Battle of New York". I believe it is inevitable to not somehow have these superheroes cross paths at some point, whether by Netflix series or by Film. This also should confirm that if there is a Movie in the works, they would use Charlie Cox as Daredevil. It is unlike shows such as Flash and Arrow where the television and cinematic universes are separate, where as Marvel's universes are shared. I think it would be a big mistake to cast another Daredevil if they began production on a film. Charlie Cox IS Matt Murdock!
Daredevil is hot right now
Daredevil is definitely the talk of the town at the moment. It is arguably the biggest thing for Marvel at the moment, impending Avengers: Age of Ultron's world wide release. The show definitely hit well with viewers and I believe a Daredevil film would be equally, if not more successful than some of the previous Marvel projects. Fans would really be behind a Daredevil cinematic project of some kind, but only if Charlie Cox is involved. If Marvel were to create a Daredevil film and stray away from Charlie Cox they would lose a ton of momentum that has been built for the show and would lose possibly a lot of hype for a film. Marvel should jump at this while the show is hot, maybe wait another season, but Marvel should and I believe most likely will capitalize on this opporotunity.
Fans everywhere should have their fingers crossed!
In 2003, we were given a Daredevil film distributed by 20th Century Fox. No this film was not atrociously bad but it was not the greatest. Ben Affleck was not a bad Matt Murdock and the film definitely did not suffer due to his acting. Fast forward 12 years and Daredevil is slowly becoming a phenomena among comic fans and even viewers with no prior interest in comic books. The show is definitely on its way to becoming a new television heavyweight. Marvel has been very smart in fusing the MCU with the universe in the series and it could definitely work out in the long run. If they were to grant Charlie Cox's wish and give him a Daredevil film, the outcome would be insurmountably profitable and positive. The film would attract not only the everyday comic fan, but the Netflix addicts who enjoyed the show equally as much. Either way, i'm sure that the Daredevil series and the films will somehow connect eventually. The smart thing for Marvel to do in terms of how they should go about this is, they should give Daredevil another season or two, let it build an even more gigantic fan base and go from there. Daredevil is well on its way to becoming an anchor for Marvel and one of the top shows that you could find. Movie or not, Marvel really did a great job on The show, cant wait for Season 2!
