Become the Kingpin of Marvel Trivia With These ‘Daredevil’ Facts
Did you know Charlie Cox had a shot at playing the young Han Solo? Unfortunately, Cox had gotten so good at playing blind as the title character of Netflix’s Daredevil that he stopped making eye contact with people. (Eye contact being low on the list of priorities for blind people.) And as a result, he blew his Han Solo audition. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of the ScreenCrush series You Think You Know TV?
Series creator Drew Goddard had a personal connection to the character of Matt Murdock, Daredevil’s alter ego, that he felt an obligation to get the show and the hero right in a way that hadn’t been done in previous screen adaptations. He also felt he couldn’t just retell old stories from the comics, and treated the series like his own run on the Daredevil comic book.
