Daredevil Star Charlie Cox Relishing Screen Partnership With Iron Fist


Having inked a deal to reprise the role of Matt Murdock for a third season of Daredevil, coupled with the advent of next year’s Defenders series, Charlie Cox’s future in Marvel’s TV universe is looking bright.

Bringing a compelling sense of gravity to the Man Without Fear, Cox has certainly impressed in the title role, but beyond his friendship (relationship?) with Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple, we haven’t really seen Murdock’s stoic lead interact with any Marvel characters outside of Daredevil. Unlike, say, Jessica Jones, who holds an on-again, off-again relationship with Mike Colter’s Luke Cage.

That is, of course, about to change very soon indeed. But the one relationship that has Charlie Cox most excited lies between Daredevil and Danny Rand himself, Iron Fist. While appearing at the Toronto Fan Expo (via CBM), the British actor was joined by Marvel COO Joe Quesada and Daredevil co-star Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) to solicit questions from budding fans, with one in particular revealing Cox’s desire to partner with Finn Jones’ newcomer.

“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.”

Season 3 of Daredevil is currently without a premiere date over at Netflix, and considering that Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders have currently taken priority, don’t expect any new episodes to arrive until at least 2018.

Next up for Marvel and Netflix, however, is the premiere of Luke Cage. It’ll muscle its way onto the streaming service come September 30 with a host of episodes named after notable Gang Starr songs.
