Charlie Cox has said he "really likes" Ben Affleck's performance as Marvel superhero, Daredevil.
Charlie Cox is undoubtedly a fan-favourite choice as Marvel's Matt Murdock, aka comic book superhero Daredevil. Blinded in his youth, the character's other senses have been incredibly heightened, and the hero has used that to his advantage, solving crimes and taking down criminal lords in New York.
Cox's Netflix original series is the one that launched the entirety of Netflix's Marvel TV universe, taking the world by storm and showcasing just how superhero shows should be done when they're on the small screen instead of the big.

The actor would like to see his character's "relationship with Karen figure itself out".
Marvel's collaboration with Netflix is one of the most impressive and successful deals the streaming service seems to have done, with a solo series for each of its four leading heroes - 'Daredevil', 'Jessica Jones', 'Luke Cage' and 'Iron Fist' - impressing the viewers at home, and a team-up in 'The Defenders' also making big waves.
Daredevil and Jones are clearly very different in their approaches to tackling crime. Daredevil for example wears a costume while he takes on his enemies, preferring to keep his identity a secret, whilst Jones has no problem donning her usual clothes, allowing her face to be seen whenever she has to deal with her city's nastiest villains.

Things are about to get pretty dark on Netflix as 'Daredevil' heralds the first of Marvel’s four upcoming series.
The debut trailer for Netflix’s Marvel made ‘Daredevil’ series has just hit, giving us our first real look at Charlie Cox as the blind superhero. The 90 second clip shows Cox as Daredevil’s alter-ego Matt Murdock in a confessional with a priest and hinting at dark times ahead.
“I’ve been preoccupied of late with questions of morality, of right and wrong, good and evil,” Murdock tells the priest. “I’m not seeking forgiveness for what I’ve done, Father. I’m asking forgiveness for what I’m about to do. I’m just trying to make my city a better place.”
A single accident or act of violence can change more than just a single person, but an entire city. Blinded as a child, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) has worked hard to become a respected lawyer, yet it is his out-of-hours job that is having more of an impact on the world around him. Living in the Hell's Kitchen neighbourhood in New York City, Murdock faces crime on a day-to-day basis. Left without the use of his eyes, he must navigate the world around him using his almost sonar levels of hearing, battling criminals during the day as a lawyer, and at night, as the masked vigilante Daredevil.

An unusual point of view prevents this from ever turning into the standard biopic, but it's Eddie Redmayne's staggeringly committed performance as Stephen Hawking that makes the film unmissable. Based on the book by Stephen's wife Jane Hawking, the film uses her perspective to recount the events with their relationship firmly at the centre, which adds a personal angle the audience can engage with. This diverts the attention from Hawking's scientific breakthroughs, but makes the film both energetic and emotionally riveting.
It opens in 1963 when Stephen (Redmayne) is a rising-star at Cambridge, already a genius who thinks far outside the box. But he also has a sharp sense of humour, which makes it easy to see what Jane (Felicity Jones) sees in this brainy black-hole-obsessed geek. Then just as their relationship begins to get serious, he is diagnosed with motor neurone disease and given two years to live. Instead of giving up, Jane marries him and has three kids as Stephen defies the doctor's prognosis. As his physical condition deteriorates, they get help from two people who become unexpectedly close: widowed choir director Jonathan (Charlie Cox) and medical assistant Elaine (Maxine Peake). And even as their marriage comes apart under the pressure, Jane and Stephen remain deeply connected to each other.
Anthony McCarten's script cleverly lets big ideas swirl around each scene without swamping the more human story. The central factor in Stephen and Jane's interaction centres on faith: his in science, hers in God. Stephen continues to seek a theory that will scientifically explain the nature of existence, while Jane catches him out when he takes a leap of faith himself. And the film lets all of this play out through their interaction with a variety of terrific side characters, including Stephen's tutor (David Thewlis), his colleagues (Harry Lloyd and Enzo Cilenti), his father (Simon McBurney) and Jane's mother (Emily Watson). Each performance is packed with telling nuance, while Jones gives the film a textured heart and soul.

The first look at Netflix's take on Daredevil will get you excited like nothing else.
Daredevil. DAREDEVIL. DAREDEVIIIIIIL. If that one Ben Affleck movie that one time kinda left you not wanting to hear the name again, then let these first-look photos of Charlie Cox in Marvel’s upcoming TV series ease the pain and restore your faith.
This weekend at New York City Comic-Con, the studio gave a sneak peak of Cox as Matt Murdock and he looks… how do I put this… SO FREAKING COOL. Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada mentioned that Cox was one of the easiest casting decisions for the studio. Apparently, Quesada had already chosen the Boardwalk Empire actor even before the rights were secured. So that must mean we’re getting a really great Daredevil here, right?
Coming from a privileged upbringing, cosmologist and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking naturally had a first-rate education - though no-one could expect the kind of genius and revolutionary theories that he would eventually come up with. While wowing his university professors with his baffling discoveries, he was fighting a personal battle with his rapidly deteriorating health. Whilst still studying, he began to lose the ability to walk as well as the ability to speak before being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and given a two-year expect survival rate. As to be expected from one of the world's most accomplished scientists, he defied the odds and embarked on a long and fulfilling life that lasts to this day - with just a little help from the love of his youth Jane Wilde, who encouraged him to carry on speaking with the help of his trademark speech generating device.
