Speaking to TVLine, Cox said he was unsure about recreating the one-shot that had everybody talking, but was eventually confident in the decision because of the involvement of the stunt team: "What was nice about doing that scene is it was almost exactly a year off from the [original 'one-shot'] sequence, and I remember thinking, 'Wow, this is a tall order. Obviously we're going to try to 'pay homage' to the scene from Episode 2, Season 1 - is that something we should even attempt? But I had complete trust in Phil Silvera, the stunt coordinator, and [stunt double] Chris Brewster, who are really the best in the trade at what they do."
Cox added that the scene was shot in-costume on a blisteringly hot day in New York, saying, "It was very, very hot in New York, and it begins with me carrying Jon Bernthal over my shoulder for about a minute and a half - and that guy is heavy, pure muscle!"
He added, "So before I even threw a punch or a kick, I was sweating through my suit. It was a huge challenge for everyone, including the camera operator, because most of it takes place in a stairwell, but it's one of my great memories of Season 2, and the thing I'm most excited for the fans to see."
"Daredevil" Season 2 arrives on Netflix instant streaming this Friday.
