“Daredevil” star Charlie Cox discusses the challenges of playing a blind character.
The actor sat down for an exclusive with Screen Rant, revealing “how difficult certain things are” in playing the role.
“I underestimated how much you use your eyes, as an actor, they’re such a vital tool.
You can say one thing and mean something completely different based on what your eyes are doing, and obviously I didn’t have that luxury.
And also you feed off other actors, you draw emotion from other actors, and obviously I didn’t have that.
Nor did they, because we’re not connecting on that level, but you have to find other ways and that was interesting.” During a press junket for “Age of Ultron,” Whedon revealed to IGN (via Screen Rant ) that he “fought for Daredevil to be a film instead of a TV show.” “If the show’s working, the show’s working,” Whedon explained.
Comic books are serialized entertainment and a lot of them lend themselves to TV shows as much or more than they do to movies. I like him because he’s basically Marvel’s Batman, thanks to Frank Miller basically.
So for me I didn’t think they’d be able to sustain that sort of mood on TV but TV has changed so much.
It’s come up so much that I think it might just be the right place.” Furthermore, Cox himself wants to play the character in a future standalone film.
“Yeah that would be awesome,” the actor revealed in an interview with IGN .
“I’d love to do that.
And usually when you’ve got a two-hour movie, it’s action-packed, and so I think that’s one of the things that the show has really benefitted from – having that extra time to really get to know and sit with these characters and see them as humans.
But I’d love to see ‘Daredevil’ on the big screen again.
It would be great.
And if I could be involved with that, I’d be thrilled.” Net
