When we last saw Daredevil at the end of season 2 he was not in a good place. His partnership with Foggy Nelson appeared to be over, he had revealed his secret identity to love interest Karen Page, his other love interest – Elektra – was dead and Wilson Fisk had sweated revenge on the blind hero.
Actor Charlie Cox spoke to the press at SDCC – via CinemaBlend – about where we find the hero in The Defenders when it hits Netflix in August.
“At the end of Daredevil Season 2, everyone failed. Matt failed, and the consequences were devastating. Six or so months have passed, and he’s had to completely reevaluate everything that he believes, everything that he does. And he’s decided to hang up the suit, as it were. He’s focusing all of his energies on being a pro bono lawyer. And I don’t think he has any interest, really, in being Daredevil anymore.”
What will it take to make Murdock put the suit on again? We’ll find out soon enough!
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones).
