Charlie Cox reveals the moment in time that he most wants to explore next in Daredevil. As the first character to be introduced with his own Marvel and Netflix series, Cox's Matt Murdock holds a unique place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After the Ben Affleck-led Daredevil film from 2003 disappointed, Cox had some very high expectations to live up to with his take on the Devil of Hell's Kitchen. But it didn't take long after Marvel and Netflix released the first season of Daredevil in early 2015 before Matt Murdock had quickly elevated to the level of being a fan-favorite character in the MCU.
Daredevil's success in the large superhero universe only continued in the show's second season last year, which among many other things, finally gave fans a version of Frank Castle/The Punisher that remained faithful to the comic book source material. But after living through confrontations with both Castle and The Hand, it's been revealed that Matt Murdock retired from his days of being Daredevil, in the months leading up to this year's team-up miniseries event, The Defenders.
Ever since that Defenders detail was revealed, fans have been curious about what exactly happened to Matt in the six months between the events of Daredevil's second season and The Defenders. And while recently speaking with CinemaBlend, Cox revealed that's one time period that he also hopes is explored further, whenever the third season of Daredevil is released:
"In the 6 months since DD ended and this show begins, there is so much stuff that I would like to have explored. Like I'd love see the conversation between him and Karen. At the end of Season 2 he hands her the mask, and says I'm Daredevil. I'd love to have seen that conversation. And maybe we will. Maybe we'll see that in a flashback or something, I don't know."
While Daredevil's second season ended with a number of cliffhangers -- including a tease of Frank Castle's return sometime down the line and Elektra's body being procured by The Hand -- none were quite as shocking or agonizing for fans to think about, as when Matt decided to reveal his identity as Daredevil to Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll). It's a moment that has had fans talking ever since the season was released, especially since the scene cut away before Karen could really, fully react to the news.
Now, there's always the possibility that the fallout of Matt's confession to Karen could be explored in The Defenders. But at the same time, considering that series will be more focused on bringing Matt together with his fellow crime fighters, it's unlikely that fans will really get to learn all that much about what happened between the two characters. That means, more likely than not, fans probably won't be able to get the full story from Matt about those mysterious six months until the third season of Daredevil is finally released. So in the meantime, at least fans can rest easy, knowing they aren't the only ones still hoping to have their Daredevil season 2 questions answered.
Marvel’s The Defenders premieres on August 18, followed by The Punisher season 1 later this fall. Premiere dates for the new seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist have yet to be announced.
