Daredevil star Charlie Cox said no character is safe with Marvel after talking with fans at Wizard World Pittsburgh.
Cox points specifically to the death of Ben Urich (Vondie Curtis-Hall) in season one of Daredevil suggesting death can come to anyone.
[blockquote]”I know that as a show, they don’t try to take storylines that are already written,” Cox told the crowd last weekend at Wizard World Pittsburgh. We want to be our own thing. One of the reasons they killed Ben Urich, which was such a great shock for me, but the reason I think they do it because the people who love the show are great fans and have read the comics and we need them to know this is not a safe place and the drama is going to affect you as well. You don’t know what’s going to happen. If we kill Ben Urich, what does that mean? We could to anything potentially.”
Unfortunately, the cat’s already out of the bag with Elektra’s (Elodie Yung) return for Marvel’s The Defenders due in 2017 after her character was killed in Daredevil season 2 following her ominous ending.
Strangely enough, no other major auxiliary characters have been killed off in the Marvel Defenders universe. Only two major villains have met their end in that universe. Death is still iffy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the only consistent characters to be killed are the villains. One superhero died in The Avengers: The Age of Ultron and another MCU character thought have been killed, now stars in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
What next MCU character do you think will meet a shocking end?
