Before The Defenders lands in just a couple of weeks, let’s remind ourselves of where we last saw Matt Murdock. The end of Daredevil season 2 found the blind lawyer reveal to his sometime love interest Karen Page that he was the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. It was a revelation that promised to totally change Matt’s life and have huge repercussions on his relationship with her.
When Marvel and Netflix’s team-up event begins, though, it’s moved forward six months from this point, meaning we don’t get to see Karen’s immediate reaction to the shocking news. As it turns out, star Charlie Cox is upset about this, as he’s revealed that he wants to know how that difficult conversation went down.
Here’s what the actor said to the crowd at San Diego Comic-Con (via Cinema Blend):
“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.”
We’re with Cox on this one – this would have been a hugely dramatic scene to witness and it’s a shame that it looks like we won’t get to see it. That said, Deborah Ann Woll will appear as Karen in The Defenders, which means we’ll find out how she dealt with the news in the long run. Plus, we already know that Matt will have hung up his horned helmet for the past few months, so it looks like Karen didn’t take it well, which led him to give up the mantle of Daredevil.
The Defenders sees Cox unite with Jessica Jones‘ Krysten Ritter, Luke Cage‘s Mike Colter and Iron Fist‘s Finn Jones for the first time. It lands on the streaming service on August 18th and if you’re curious to know how it turned out, look no further than our review.
