Charlie Cox is quite a busy man at the moment. He has The Defenders to film later this year, and he’ll no doubt be heading to the Luke Cage premiere this month. On top of that, he has the small matter of a baby on the way. Despite it all, the Daredevil actor managed to find time to travel to two Cons this weekend. Appearances at Dragon Con in Atlanta and Fan Expo Canada in Toronto saw him field plenty of questions.
Christian Bale’s performance in The Dark Knight was a worry for Cox. At Dragon Con, he recalled being worried about his voice in the suit. Producers were anxious it would sound like Bale’s infamous Bat-voice. It must be hard trying to avoid sounding silly when speaking with a gravel voice.
Matt Murdoch’s hair colour was another subject raised by the audience. Apparently they actually tried the red head route before Season 1, but it didn’t suit their leading man. After two fantastic seasons, there’s very few fans who actually care.
Netflix is hard at work on their 2017 series, Iron Fist. By the sounds of things, Cox is quite excited. In Atlanta, he expressed his interest in Luke Cage. During his Toronto appearance, he teased the relationship between Daredevil and Danny Rand. He told the fans, “the relationship I’m most interested in seeing fleshed out is the Matt Murdock and Danny Rand stuff. I just met Finn Jones the other day and I just think in the comics, that’s a great relationship so I want to see how that works out on screen.”
Check out the full Q&A with Cox in Toronto below.
You can see the first season of Luke Cage on September 30. Netflix has slated The Defenders and Iron Fist for 2017 releases. They’re also working on Season 2 of Jessica Jones, Season 3 of Daredevil and a spin-off based on The Punisher.
