• NYCC: Marvel’s Cup O’Joe: Quesada Talks to Charlie Cox
    Oct 08, 2017

    It’s Sunday a New York Comic Con, and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada put a spin on his traditional “Cup O’ Joe” Q&A panel — in the form of a 1-on-1 Inside the Actor’s Studio-style interview with a surprise guest, who just happened to be Daredevil star Charlie Cox.

    CBR is there live, so keep hitting refresh for the latest details.

    The panel started with talk of a new film Cox is working on about a famed diamond heist, and his soccer — er, football — fandom (his team is Arsenal).

    Quesada asked Cox about recently becoming a father, and how Cox’s own mother “only sends him bad reviews.” “”That’s not quite true,” Cox replied. “They’re both able to see the lighthearted side to being an actor,” Cox said of his parents. “She’ll be up at night, reading stuff at Google, which I don’t do — and she knows I don’t do that — and she’ll send me the stuff she thinks is funny.”

    “There was on comment on one of the forums that said, ‘I don’t know who this guy is, but I don’t like his face,'” Cox related. “Thanks, mom!”

    Cox was raised Catholic, much like Matt Murdock. “If you’re Catholic, you’ll know, there’s a point in the church service where the priest says, ‘It’s now time to offer each other the sign of peace,’ and you say, ‘peace be with you,'” Cox said. “I’m very English and polite and for a long time I didn’t know what they were saying. I thought it was ‘pleased to meet you.'”

    Quesada asked Cox about how his parents supported his choice to act. “I’m 20 years younger than my oldest sister,” Cox shared. “When they got to me, they were just kind of like, ‘Do what you want to do.'”

    “One of my dear friends was a really good actor, and we did all the plays together,” Cox said. “One day he went home and told his mom and dad, ‘I think I want to be an actor.’ It was not even an option for him. My mom and dad said to me, ‘You’re really good at this, why not try to make this a career?'”

    Cox talked the temptation to divert from his Daredevil diet. “In the U.K., we have what we call greasy spoons. It’s eggs, bacon, french toast, beans — you guys know what black pudding is? Sausages.”

    “I’ve never understood the idea of pancakes,” Cox said of his take on American food, saying he’s about to start getting back into shape (presumably to film more Daredevil, but he stopped short of confirming that).
