Charlie Cox talks season 2 of Daredevil and The Defenders

04.23.2015

Comic book fans rejoiced when Daredevil was given the proper treatment via it's recent Netflix series, and breathed a sigh of relief in equal measure when a second season was greenlit. While some theorized we would have to wait until The Defenders before we got a chance to see the Man Without Fear again, it looks like there will be another season to explore before the Avengers-style mash-up. While the actor who portrays Daredevil isn't the be-all, end-all of information, Charlie Cox did talk about who he'd like to see in the sequel, as well as when we might expect The Defenders to show up.

Charlie Cox on season 2 of Daredevil:

I have to be careful because we just got commissioned so I have no idea who is going to turn up. Based on the show we’ve created, which is very grounded in reality, I’d like to see Punisher maybe show up, a little bit of Elektra maybe. I wouldn’t mind Black Widow making an appearance, and you can’t think about Daredevil for too long without thinking of Bullseye. I don’t know when or if or how that would happen, but it’d be cool if it did.

Regarding when we should expect more Daredevil and The Defenders:

We’ll begin shooting in the second half of the year. It’ll be the same timeline as the last show, so season two will come out about this time next year. Again, I’m imagining all this, but there’ll probably do Iron Fist or Luke Cage at the same time, followed by the other one [of the two] in the first half of 2016 and then maybe Defenders in the second half of 2016 or the beginning of 2017.

With Daredevil being such a great success, I hope this light's a fire under Marvel's ass to get Iron Fist and Luke Cage in the can, so to speak. Daredevil proved to be a hell of a Marvel fix and if these other shows can follow suit, then comic book fans don't have to wait for the big-budget theatrical releases just to get excited about seeing some great stories unfold. As far as season 2 of Daredevil goes, well, let's see how far they can push the awesome!

If you've yet to check it out, the first season of Daredevil is on Netflix now!

As soon as I saw DD in costume the music from Super started playing in my head. Seriously, he looks just like the Crimson Bolt.

New DD costume, please. That multi-part mask definitely has to go.

Obviously Bullseye is going to show up. Punisher would be really awesome. I would love to see their rivalry, and with the show's gritty nature, would love to see how they handle Punisher. I'm kind of tired of Black Widow, so I hope they keep her on the big screen and out of the small one. I would really love to see D'Onofrio return as Kingpin. He did such a fantastic job. I honestly think he deserves some kind of awards nominations for his performance. He's easily one of my favorite Marvel

I love the show, but my only complaint was when they finally showed him in the suit. There is something about the mask that doesn't look right, maybe it's the eye holes. I think the mask in Ben Affleck's Daredevil was much better looking. Hopefully it's a work in progress and not the finished product.

Judging by Season 1, this doesn't look like the type of series to stuff in a new Marvel comic book bad guy every episode for Daredevil to fight (unlike say, Arrow or The Flash) and instead want to play the long game over the course of the season. I could be wrong, that could just be in the case of the Kingpin, but unlike Arrow and Flash which I use to get my weekly dosage of comic book fluff, this show CAN take its time as it's released simply as a 13 hour movie.

I like the way Cox answers questions. No noncommittal soundbites and no clumsy accidental spoilers. He seems smartly well-informed and honestly engaged in the material. He was great in Stardust. As far as I know yet another actor to be brought to light by Matthew Vaughn.

Oh yes, please bring in The Punisher! The way they made Daredevil into such an awesome show, I'm sure they'll give The Punisher the justice he deserves.

The praise for this series is well deserved, as is the incredibly high anticipation for more of these street level heroes. Netflix was the perfect home for these smaller stories. These street level heroes don't need the massive special effects budgets that guys in flying suits or gods that shoot lightning do. There are so many amazing stories that can be told for a fraction of a tentpole blockbuster budget, but that doesn't mean they have to be any less entertaining. This series proved it. I

I admit I wasn't sure what to think of this when I heard it announced. I'm happy to admit how wrong I was to ever be skeptical of it. Season 2 is something I can't wait for, and the success and quality of this show has actually wet my appetite for JJ, Cage, Iron Fist, and the Defenders series. I would love to see Punisher come in as an antagonist in one of those series, then launch into his own. Also, and this is a person favorite, I would love to see them do a Moon Knight series. I do wonder if cost would be prohibitive on an MK series, solely because they'd have to spend some time in Egypt or special effect create it.

Moon Knight, oh yes, he should be awesome on screen! Street level is indeed one of the levels to focus on to avoid superhero overkill exhaustion.

The Punisher

I would love to see Thomas Jane reprise his role as the Punisher. After watching the short film "Dirty Laundry", I feel like that world and the world created in Netflix's Daredevil would meld together like a delicious reeses peanut butter cup marshmallow and gram cracker smores. It probably won't happen. But damn. That'd be cool.

I thought the exact same thing. If they could bring back Thomas Jane for The Punisher that would be awesome. He's not exactly lighting the box office on fire, so I think it would be possible to bring him on Daredevil and then spin him off into his own show.

Completely agree...Dirty Laundry could slot right in to the world they've created in the first season of Daredevil. As for Thomas Jane, hasn't he recently been part of a failed TV series? I certainly don't think it would be an issue getting him involved in this if that's what Marvel wanted. Wasn't he also involved in the production of Dirty Laundry? Heck, make that the first 10 minutes of the pilot should they want to give him his own series!

Oh My God, I totally forgot about Dirty Laundry. That could actually fit right in if Marvel allows it to. I hope Thomas Jane would reprise his role if Marvel is serious about bringing in The Punisher.

I'd love to see The Punisher debut as an antagonist first, much like his comic debut in Amazing Spider-Man back in 1974. I personally enjoyed the Civil War comic's interpretation of Frank Castle as a man filled with good intention but carries out those intentions with sociopathic and homicidal methods.

The Gladiator is a definite for next season if you paid any attention to season one. Scourge would be cool, the Rose, Typhoid Mary, hammer head and tombstone if sony would allow it.

And I think Timothy Olyphant could make a pretty badass Bullseye.

Expectations are high after the first terrific season. Do hope we get to see the introduction of Elektra, and Bullseye in season two. And I would rather see Punisher get his own series on Netflix first before any crossovers.
