Charlie Cox has recently expressed his interest in playing Daredevil in Avengers: Infinity War, admitting it would be the “coolest thing ever.”
The 33-year-old actor stars as the blind superhero in the Marvel television series, and with rumors his character could pop up in the next Avengers film, Charlie spoke about the allegations.
“I have not received that call!” Charlie told Entertainment Tonight. “Could you imagine? That would be the coolest thing ever.”
Of course, there’s no guarantee that even if Daredevil was drafted in for the next Avengers it would be Charlie playing the role. However, he insists he would happily fight tooth and nail if someone else was cast in the part.
“Marvel TV and Marvel Studios are two very different things,” he said. “So even if the character were to appear in that film, that doesn’t necessarily mean that I would appear in that film. I will pick a fight with the guy that they choose!
“That would be a dream. But that is not something that has been discussed with me at this point.”
Marvel’s studio president Kevin Feige previously revealed there will be something of a shake up in terms of which of the Avengers will feature in Infinity War – which will be split into two tales.
According to rumors, the first part will feature Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, Vision, Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Racoon, Groot, Ant-Man, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and War Machine.
Then the second segment will feature Captain Marvel and the Inhumans.
Charlie recently spoke about how he toned up to play Daredevil. While he was not used to going to the gym, he told the Gay Times that a workout is part of his daily routine.
“After doing it for eight months I’ve grown to love it,” he said. “When you’re in the habit of going to the gym you feel great and I’ve gotten better at it. I used to go, ‘I wouldn’t even know how to sit on that thing or which way to face,’ but I’ve now got a sense of which machines do what, which body part they work, and I’ve got regimes if I just want to knock out a full-body 45 minute workout. There’s less anxiety about it now.”
