Actor Charlie Cox revealed an anecdote that dates back to the casting stage of Daredevil, a series in which he sought the leading role, not knowing the character he would play.
One of the actors who has earned recognition from Marvel fans is Charlie Cox, who from 2014 to 2018 starred in the Daredevil series, although the same actor was unaware that at the time of casting it was to bring Matt Murdock to life.

Charlie Cox himself recalled in a panel organized by the Collider site that he overcame several obstacles to keep the protagonist of the series
“They called me in for an audition. It was a secret, they didn’t tell us what it was called or what (the project) was about, it only had a few lines… from what I say I didn’t know that the character was blind in my first audition, so I didn’t do it, and then that’s it. You know it’s a pretty rigorous process.”.
Cox noted that it wasn’t until he met with then-Marvel TV heads Joe Quesada and Jeph Loeb that he knew he was fighting for the role of Daredevil.
“I had to audition, I had a Skype, I was allowed to read the first two episodes, and then I had to fly to Los Angeles to have a screen test, and then I had a meeting (with Joe Quesada and Jeph Loeb), and then I had another screen test, and I finally got the job. So it was quite a process, I went through many obstacles to get it”.
The path of the Man without fear
On April 10, 2015, the first season of Daredevil premiered on the world’s best-known digital platform, becoming a success for Marvel Television.
On October 18, 2018, the third and final season of Daredevil was released, which generated a movement among fans so that the return of the actor to Marvel productions was requested on social networks, something that happened until 2021 when Cox reinterpreted Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Now Marvel Studios is preparing a fourth season of Daredevil, which does not yet have a release date, although Cox could also return as Daredevil in a tape of phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
