The heralded stars of Disney+'s "Daredevil: Born Again," Vincent D'Onofrio and Charlie Cox, touched on their participation in the creative process at the Disney annual upfront presentation to advertisers. The series, launching in March 2025, sees a big return of this duo who have become a byword for these characters in the Marvel Universe.

The two actors showed excitement and the physical involvement with the characters they played during an event that took place on Thursday. Cox, who is celebrated for his leading role as a blind superhero in the show, talked about the physical demand of the show.

"It's a physically demanding show, which I love. I wouldn't have it any other way," Cox told Deadline on the red carpet. In his words, he confessed that his body may not be as strong as it was a decade ago, but his passion is still burning.

"There will come a time where I am not able to do it anymore, but for right now, just keep doing the best job we can and loving it,". Feel incredibly grateful for still making this show and hopefully we got another ten years on us," he added.

Cox's Surgical Challenge

Cox also revealed that he had to undergo shoulder surgery during the recent strikes, highlighting the intense physicality involved in the production. Despite these challenges, Cox's dedication to Daredevil remains steadfast.

Interestingly, D’Onofrio and Cox revealed that their characters do not share many scenes together in the upcoming series, though the exact details remain under wraps. However, their collaboration extends beyond the screen.

"We’re on the phone all the time," D'Onofrio shared, indicating their continuous dialogue about the show's direction and script. Cox elaborated on their partnership, noting, "We agree on almost everything. I read the scripts first and I’ll text Vincent and he’ll be like, ‘What do you think?’ And I’ll be like, ‘I’m not saying till you read it.’ Then we’ll talk about it." Their involvement doesn't even stop with the mere performance of their roles but also goes a long way in affecting the narrative and how the series is executed, adding a lot of air of authenticity and dedication for fans of Marvel series.
