In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Charlie Cox said that he was saddened by Netflix’s decision to cancel Daredevil after only three seasons. The series joins Luke Cage and Iron Fist as Marvel shows ended by the streaming service. Here are highlights:

On the end of the show: “A lot of us really expected to keep going, and I certainly did. The truth is, I felt like we had a lot of stories to tell, and although I understand [the cancellation], I’m very saddened by that. It’s just how business works. But also, these characters mean a lot to people. It’s weird to think there’s a chance I won’t be playing Matt Murdock ever again. That’s a bizarre feeling, because that character has been such a huge part of my life for the last four and a half years.”

On loving the role: “I loved it. It’s been just the most incredible job for me. It’s so fun to do. You get to do all the acting obviously, which is great, but then there’s also this really fun physical aspect to it with all the stunts and the fight choreography.”

On possible stories for season four: “I hate to be boring, but to be honest, I don’t think I should answer that. It’s so new, the news. It’s quite painful for quite a lot of people. I was really excited about the ideas that were talked about for season 4, and I think if I was to speculate about it and it went on the internet, it might not be very helpful to people.… Anything I say often gets picked up and circulated, and I just want to make sure I don’t give any false hope.”

On if he’d play the character again: “Oh my God, yeah. I don’t know how this would happen, but maybe one day we could pick up the baton and do it again.”
