As the latest Avengers film hits the big screen, we sat down with the newest member of the ever-expanding Marvel Universe, Brit Charlie Cox, about his starring role in Netflix series Daredevil.

Having made a memorable impression Boardwalk Empire and most recently seen in the award-winning Theory of Everything, Charlie was the surprise choice to headline Marvel’s first TV series of their recent output. He has proved doubters wrong as the show has scored huge critical success. We spoke to him just as a second series has been greenlit, and he told us the surprising way he found out that news.

He also told us about future plans for the show and if that includes seeing Daredevil line-up with the Avengers.

Finally he gave us his surprising view of Ben Affleck’s much-derided take on Daredevil.
