Vincent D’Onofrio, Charlie Cox on ‘Daredevil,’ the red suit and getting ‘down and dirty’

Charlie Cox took part in a reddit AMA over the weekend with co-star Vincent D’Onofrio and talked about playing Daredevil in the new Marvel TV series, but most importantly, mentioned putting on that iconic red costume.

Daredevil-Empire-Charlie Cox ready to fightFans will see the Man Without Fear in a John Romita Jr inspired black ninja costume as Matt Murdock leaves to battle in the streets.

“I love both of the suits. Obviously it was great to involve the John Romita Jr. black ninja costume but the day I first put on the iconic costume is a day I will never forget,” Cox confesses.

D’Onofrio talked about how the series will set itself apart from the other Marvel films and shows.

“I think because it’s under the umbrella of Netflix, we have an opportunity to do things that other Marvel shows aren’t doing. We can be, for lack of a better term, down and dirty, just simply because of our platform. And there’s been a lot of care taken in this Daredevil series. Everybody wanted to knock it out of the park for the fans. I was lucky to be included in that group. I think that kind of positive influence helps it to stand out as well. I think if it is the great show I think it is, it’s because of those reasons.” (Emphasis added, The Dispatch)

Cox talked villains in season two, as well as what are the chances of joining Earth’s Mightiest Heroes down the line. “I have no idea if it could ever work in our show but I would love to see Stilt Man make an entrance. Maybe even Jester.”

The Boardwalk Empire did reveal his comic book inspirations/favorite DD stories.

I really love the issues when Matt Murdock is defending the White Tiger. It was so cool to read a comic book with such a compelling courtroom scene. I also have to mention Jeph Loeb’s Daredevil Yellow. So touching.” He also added: “The greater part of my preparation was spent reading comics. I think you will find influence from many of the DD writers and illustrators over the years. Personally, I found Bendis/Maleev runs incredibly helpful in terms of the tone of our show.”

Since I got cast in the role, I have read hundreds of comics. There are so many great characters but some of my favorites are the following: The Punisher, The Purple Man, and Thor.
