Charlie Cox revealed whether his upcoming portrayal of Daredevil in the Disney+ series is different from his previous roles.

After watching the actor in the Marvel TV series "Daredevil" from 2015 to 2019, Cox's fans have been wanting to see him more in other installments and projects. It led countless petitions to emerge, including the #SaveDaredevil trend.

Although it took years before the Man Without Fear to officially return, Cox revealed that the character remains the same in the Disney+ series.

He sat down for an interview with iNews and addressed whether Matt Murdock/Daredevil would be different in "Daredevil: Born Again." Instead of calling it a "new version," he revealed that the character is still the same but going through a "different period" of his life.

"I don't think it's a different character," said Cox. "I just think it's maybe a different period of his life. I don't think my interpretation will change — they hired the same actor. We're saying this is a whole new ... era, or variant?"

He added that he has not read the script. But he talked about the series being part of the multiverse.

Cox started playing Matt Murdock/Daredevil's role in the 2015 "Daredevil." He went on to appear as the character in "The Defenders," "Spider-Man: No Way Home" and "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law."

The character is now part of Marvel Studios' upcoming TV series, "Echo" and Disney+ "Daredevil: Born Again."

Among the flicks he starred in, his role in the Disney+ series "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" reportedly gave him a new perspective on the character. Although he only had a brief cameo in the series, Cox said he would show what he learned once "Daredevil: Born Again" premieres.

In a separate interview with NME, he disclosed that the Disney+ series would not be as gory as the episodes in Marvel's "Daredevil."

"My opinion is this character works best when he's geared towards a slightly more mature audience," he added. "My instinct is that on Disney+ it will be dark, but it probably won't be as gory."

"Daredevil: Born Again" will arrive on the streaming giant in 2024. Kevin Feige is the executive producer, while writers Matt Corman and Chris Ord penned the script.
