We knew both Charlie Cox and Ben Affleck did the same red vigilante but Cox called his shots as he said Ben’s suit completely sucks.
While Charlie Cox did watch Ben Affleck’s Daredevil but he isn’t the biggest fan of the 2003 film.
In the Middle East Film and Comic Con in Abu Dabi, Charlie Cox said, “No, after I got the role. I hadn't seen it before I got the role. I watched it when I got the role and, to be fair… I think Ben Affleck does a really good Matt Murdock, I like his Matt Murdock… I don't love the movie.”
He added, “I feel like the movie tried to do too much and it was a little tonally confused.”
Cox also said, “They had everyone in that movie, they had Kingpin, they had Bullseye, they had Elektra, they had Karen Page, they had Foggy. It was saturated and it's two hours. So that was part of that problem. And the suit sucks!"
Coming to his MCU appearance, Cox told “What I would say is I've always liked the idea that at some point in Matt's journey, his emotional journey.”
He added, “I don't know how everything is happening, or what might happen, and how it ties into what we've already done, I have no idea at all.”
Speaking to Comicbook, Charlie Cox said, “I've always liked the idea that at some point he feels like he has earned the right to have the DD on his chest which we've never had.”
