Marfell's revocation of Netflix dare was a blow to many but a little more than Charlie Cox, the actor Daredevil played alone, Matt Murdoch. After a week of silence, he finally came out and said his piece.
"Many of us really hoped to continue, and I definitely did," said Cox Entertainment Entertainment Weekly. "The truth is, I had the feeling that we have a lot of stories and though I understand [the cancelation], I am very sad about this. "
although dare debuted through Netflix in 2015, Cox was cast as a hero in the summer of 2014. It's four and a half years, a long time to play a hero these days. Plus, the show had just debuted its third season a few months ago. People were still looking and excited to see what was going on.
"Just how the business works," said Coke. "But also these characters mean a lot for the people It's strange to think that I have a chance not to play Matt Murdock again It's a strange feeling because this character has been such a big part of my life for the past four and a half years. "

"
Netflix, however, had no trouble giving the fans what could become a false hope. In your statement after the cancellation dare, the network writes: "While the Netflix series are over, the three existing seasons will remain in service for years to come, while the Daredevil hero will continue to live in future Marvel projects." But there is no mention of this character iteration and "future projects" for Marvel could literally mean something. It seems obvious from Cox's obvious quotes that he thinks this is the end.
