Charlie Cox has addressed rumours that he will be reprising his role as Marvel’s Daredevil.

The Kin actor played the superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Netflix series of the same name from 2014-2018.

Rumours have emerged that Cox will be donning his iconic red and black suit once again in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home film this December, and, while the Englishman has yet to give anything away, he said that he would enjoy if there was a “reimagining” of the character and show in the future.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Cox said he was “grateful” for his time on the show and took his role “very seriously.”

“What happens in the comics is a writer and an artist will team up for a run of a comic, so they’ll do 10 issues, 20 issues,” the 38-year-old explained.

“If there was an opportunity for me to come back as Daredevil, whatever that would look like, I imagine it would be a reimagining of the character and the show.

“If they choose me to do it, there are going to be some elements that are, of course, the same. Or they might choose someone else and reboot it all over again and do what they’ve done with Spider-Man over and over again, which is recast it and start from the beginning and it’s still gets the numbers.”

However, he admitted that he would be afraid a reboot wouldn’t live up to the original series.

“You’ve got to be careful what you wish for,” Cox said.

“You come back and it’s not as good or it doesn’t quite work or … too much time has passed, it doesn’t quite come together in the same way. You don’t want to taint what you’ve already got.

“If we never come back, you’ve got these three great seasons — and our third season was our best-reviewed. So, the trajectory was up. I am tremendously proud and grateful for what we have.”
