Charlie Cox Says The Defenders Will Shoot Later This Year, No Plans For Daredevil Movie Cameo


Charlie Cox will be donning his blood-red guise as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen later this year when Marvel’s The Defenders series enters production.

That’s according to the man himself, who recently touched base on the future of his blind vigilante beyond Daredevil season 2. While Cox conceded that there are currently no plans for that much-touted movie crossover, the British actor did outline a rough production timeline for Netflix and Marvel’s ensemble drama.


Word comes by way of The Independent, who quizzed Cox about the status of the MCU on the small screen. Riding high after Daredevil season 2, it seems that there is currently nothing to report about a potential season 3 – hardly surprising, given that both Luke Cage, Iron Fist and a second season of Jessica Jones will premiere beforehand.

Here’s what the actor had to share:

“What we do know is at the end of this year we’re going to be making The Defenders and, of course, Daredevil is very much a part of that foursome. I have no idea what the storyline is going to be for that show. I’m very excited to see how those world’s combine… and interested to see tonally how those shows become one.”

When it comes to the possibility of securing a cameo in a Marvel movie, however, Cox admitted that “there was no conversation about joining any of the movies.”

Next up on Marvel and Netflix’s bustling slate is the series premiere of Luke Cage, with Mike Colter’s muscle for hire primed to descend onto Hell’s Kitchen on September 30. Iron Fist, meanwhile, is set to begin filming later this month.
