Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter following Marvel Studios’ showcase at D23 Expo, Cox was asked about his upcoming Disney+ television series, Daredevil: Born Again, which was announced at San Diego Comic-Con. Cox said that not only was he happy about returning to the role, but he was also grateful for fans who still wanted him around and kickstarted the “Save Daredevil” campaign across social media.
“I feel like I owe them a huge thank you,” Cox said. “You know, the ‘Save Daredevil‘ campaign, they campaigned so hard for this, and there were times where I would meet some of them when they came to see a play that I was doing in New York, or my friends who would follow them online would tell me stuff that they’re trying to do and raise awareness.”

Cox went on to note that even when his own belief in ever returning to the role faltered, fans didn’t give up, joking that at times he was thinking that it was “over” for his chances. “I would be there thinking, ‘Guys, I think it’s over. I think you need — it’s so nice, but I think we need to give up,’ and they didn’t, and here we are.”

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cameron spoke about the legendary 1995 film. According to him, DiCaprio was always at the top of his list to play Jack, but the role almost went to someone else after DiCaprio refused to read for the role.
“‘Oh, I don’t read,’” Cameron said DiCaprio told him before the director shook his hand and said, “Well, thanks for coming by.” It was then, Cameron said, that DiCaprio replied, “Wait, wait, wait, if I don’t read, I don’t get the part. Just like that?’”
Cameron went on to say that he told DiCaprio that Titanic was “a giant movie that is going to take two years of my life, and you’ll be gone doing five other things while I’m doing post-production. So I’m not going to f— it up by making the wrong decision in casting. So you’re going to read, or you’re not going to get the part.”
The director went on to say that DiCaprio did end up reading for the part, although he did joke that “every ounce of his entire being is entirely negative right up until I said, ‘Action,’ and then he turned into Jack. And Kate just lit up, and they went into this whole thing, and he played the scene. Dark clouds had opened up, a ray of sun came down and lit up Jack. I’m like, ‘All right, he’s the guy.’”

Of course, DiCaprio’s turn as Jack was what turned him from an already famous heartthrob into a superstar and would lead to countless roles for him in the future. As for Cameron, his next film, Avatar: The Way of Water, will premiere in theaters on December 16, 2022.
