From Iron Man to Thor, the Marvel studios have always had the opportunity to be labeled the best franchise cooking the best superhero stories. Aside from the Avengers, Charlie Cox’s Daredevil was one of those superheroes that has us on the edge of our seats.
The lawyer/superhero recently made his big screen appearance via Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. But what if we told you Charlie Cox didn’t know he was about to audition for a blind hero? Left a little surprised right? Read on to know everything below!
In an old interview with Seth Meyers, Charlie Cox had shared his experience with his Daredevil audition. Speaking about it in detail, Cox recalled that he never knew that Daredevil, aka Matt Murdock, was blind until the day of his audition.
Charlie Cox claimed he was given part of the script with a false title the day before the audition. While there was no mention of Daredevil in the script, this was confirmed by his agent when he gave a brief description of Matt Murdock. His agent revealed that Matt was a “redhead, tall, athletic, gymnastic, strong” person. While talking about the detail, Cox’s agent forgot to mention the most important thing, which is that the character was blind.
In the same conversation, Cox revealed that he got to know the blind part after reading lines with his friend, who pointed it out. Cox recalled, “And he said, ‘I think — isn’t Daredevil blind?’ And I said – and I didn’t have time for this – and I thought, ‘No, dude, I’m pretty sure they would’ve told me if the guy was blind.'” Just to make sure it was true, Cox confirmed with his agent who replied by email, “Oh, yeah, and he’s blind.”
Phew, looks like that would have been a big surprise for Charlie Cox.
