Remember back when Joe Quesada was an artist? I don’t mean he’s not one now, but his main thing was being an artist. Now he’s Chief Creative Officer for Marvel, he’s tried his hand at directing an episode of the Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD webseries Slingshot, and now he’s becoming a pseudo-talk show host. At this past New York Comic-Con he did two Cup O’ Joe panels that involved him talking with a guest. The first one was with the Legendary Stan Lee, an interview Joe has done before. But the second one was a surprise to the audience and had Joe talking with his long time friend and current Marvel’s Daredevil star Charlie Cox.
It was really kind of a unique interview in that it didn’t cover the topics you would normally expect. Joe spent a lot of time talking to Charlie’s family and friends and put together some interesting questions about the actor’s upbringing and personal life. We find out that Charlie loves the football team Arsenal, loves to prank people, went to spend a month in Guatemala so he could learn to surf and that he really can’t sing. We even get Charlie telling to really bad jokes.
A good job by Joe putting together a series of really unique question born out of a lot of research and for giving fans a different look at the man behind Matt Murdock.
Marvel has released the full 1-hour interview panel. I watched it last night and really enjoyed it.
