Stardust actor Charlie Cox has managed to gain worldwide recognition by his portrayal of Matt Murdock in Netflix's Daredevil. The season 2 featured Frank Castle, aka The Punisher (Jon Bernthal), and Elektra (√Člodie Yung) helping Daredevil in eradicating crime from the Hell's Kitchen. Netflix is yet to announce the possible air date for Season 3, but it looks like even Charlie is not aware of the show's future.

Netflix's superhero series was created by Drew Goddard, and it featured Charlie as Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer-by-day who fights crime at night. Season 1 was released on April 10, 2015, and managed to acquire praise for its action performances and the depiction of a darker theme. Season 2 was released on March 18, 2016, and featured new characters from Marvel's Cinematic Universe. However, there is still no update from Netflix about the possibility of the third season.

Earlier this year, Netflix hosted a two-day event in Paris. The event allowed the fans to get a chance to interact with the casts of Daredevil along with the casts of some popular series like House of Cards and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. According to the Independent, when it was asked to Charlie about the release date of Season 3, the 33-year-old star stated that he has no idea about it.

"We don't know if there's going to be a season three, I certainly don't know."
"Very excited to see how those worlds combine... and interested to see totally how those shows become one."
"Marvel is talking about setting Mephisto as the prime antagonist for The Defenders. Some may say that this villain wouldn't fit the TV shows but that's why they're incorporating Iron Fist-to set up the supernatural element."
"I feel very at home in that Flash world, so much so that I'd love to do the others. I even told [Marvel chief creative officer] Joe Quesada - we worked on Daredevil together back in the day, I wrote it, he drew it - I said, 'Dude, I want to direct Daredevil, man. That'd be wild to be able to do it in real-life - let's co-direct it, that'd be cool, just like we did the book. We could co-direct an episode and then, like, take the passion from the page to the screen."
"You know, they're gearing up now for The Defenders. If I can get a piece of that Defenders mini-series holy s**t, could you imagine, dude? Because then you're working with multiple suits at once, that'd be phenomenal."
