Star Char­lie Cox dis­cusses his dark­est turn as Dare­devil yet

ON… SEA­SON 3’S RE­TURN TO FORM

“Well, it de­pends what peo­ple mean by ‘form’. I think the tone of it cer­tainly feels more like Sea­son 1. I en­joyed the way Sea­son 2 touched on the mythol­ogy of the comic books, with an­cient cul­tures that can go in­vis­i­ble and bring peo­ple back from the dead. But now it’s nice to go back to the psy­cho­log­i­cal-thriller as­pect of Dare­devil, with more boots-on-the­ground-type sto­ry­lines.”

ON… THE RE­TURN OF WIL­SON FISK

“We are very lucky to have Vin­cent [D’onofrio] in this show. The fact we got him for one sea­son is one thing, but the fact he was will­ing to come back for Sea­son 2 and now be in ev­ery episode of Sea­son 3 is such an as­set. He el­e­vates the show.”

ON… NEW VIL­LAIN BULLS­EYE

“It’s a bril­liantly con­structed ori­gin story. He starts off as one of the good guys, an in­cred­i­bly well re­spected sharp­shooter for the FBI. But Wil­son Fisk finds a way of clev­erly ma­nip­u­lat­ing him and turn­ing him into an as­set of his own. It’s a won­der­ful part for an ac­tor, and Wil­son Bethel is fan­tas­tic in the role. Watch­ing that trans­for­ma­tion on set was re­ally thrilling.”

ON… CROSS­ING OVER WITH THE MCU

“Do half the char­ac­ters turn to dust dur­ing Sea­son 3? It’s tricky to an­swer. The truth is, we’re imag­in­ing this sea­son of Dare­devil hap­pens pre- the click of the fin­gers. So we don’t have to an­swer that ques­tion! I would love Dare­devil to join the fight against Thanos; for all us Marvel­net­flix guys to be in­cluded. But my un­der­stand­ing is there’s no plan to do that. Yet.” DAN JOLIN
