Just because he’s “The Man Without Fear” doesn’t mean he’s also “The Man Without Feelings.”

Over the last few weeks, Netflix has dropped their Marvel TV shows faster than Thanos can say, “You should have gone for the head.” First, there was Iron Fist, followed by Luke Cage. Most recently, to the surprise of many, Netflix pulled the plug on the show that started it all for this little corner of the Marvel Universe, Daredevil. It was reportedly the network’s fourth most popular show just before it was cancelled, and the writers even had the next season all mapped out.

Now, the man behind the horns, Charlie Cox, has broken his silence since the show’s ending. In an interview with EW, he talked about his feelings about the fact it’s over: “The truth is, I felt like we had a lot of stories to tell, and although I understand [the cancellation], I’m very saddened by that. It’s just how business works. But also, these characters mean a lot to people. It’s weird to think there’s a chance I won’t be playing Matt Murdock ever again. That’s a bizarre feeling because that character has been such a huge part of my life for the last four and a half years.”

Disney has said that we haven’t seen the last of the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. What that means, we have no idea. We can speculate all we want, whether it’s an MCU movie, another TV series, or an animated Into the Devil-Verse (okay, maybe not that last one), but we’ll only know when Disney is ready to tell us. But Cox did say that he's willing to reprise the role: “Oh my God, yeah. I don’t know how this would happen, but maybe one day we could pick up the baton and do it again.”

Whatever Marvel’s plans are for Matt Murdock, we know for sure that the actor that did the character justice is ready to answer the call.
