If you’re one of the many that devoured Daredevil Season 2 on Netflix, Charlie Cox – the actor who plays the superhero – had some exciting things to say recently concerning the planned Netflix show The Defenders, which will see Cox’s Daredevil, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage and Finn Jones’ Iron Fist team up to defend New York City.
When asked whether a third season of Daredevil was on the cards yet, the British actor admitted he didn’t know. ‘What we do know is at the end of this year we’re going to be making The Defenders,’ he said, ‘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 worlds combine, and interested to see tonally how those shows become one.’
What about the fate of particular characters at the end of Season 2 of Daredevil? Cox hinted that some story threads may be addressed in The Defenders. ‘In terms of wrapping up any storylines, maybe they’ll do some of that in The Defenders,’ he reveals, ‘Or maybe they won’t.’
Expect Marvel’s The Defenders to air sometime next year.
