Collider interviewed Scott Glenn about the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series. Glen talked about signing on for Marvel’s Daredevil (premiering on Netflix on April 10th), having no prior knowledge of the comic book world, wanting to tackle the challenge of playing a blind man, and how anxious he is to see how it turned out. Be aware that there are some spoilers.

What attracted you to the Netflix series, Daredevil? Were you familiar with that world, at all?

GLENN: Not at all. I’m not a comic book guy. I’ve never been to Comic-Con. I don’t know anything about that. It’s a whole different world. On the set, there were people in their 70s and people in their late teens, and all of them knew this world and were obsessed with it. It was up to Marvel to decide which superhero they wanted to start with. I know they wanted one of the first three or four to be a woman, but they knew they wanted to start with Daredevil because they thought it had been given such a disservice when it was made into a feature. I never saw that film, so I don’t know whether it was good or bad, but I know that that was their feeling. For me, it was just getting to do something I had never done before in my life, which was play blind. I’ve never played a blind person.

What can you say about who Stick is?

GLENN: I play a blind assassin, who is the mentor of [Matt Murdock]. So, all it took for me was to read the script of this one episode that I’m in – Episode 7 – and I just totally loved the character. I thought it was going to be hard and physically demanding and just fun to do, and it was. And then, I got to go to New York and spend some time there. I’m a little scared of it because I haven’t seen it yet. The trailer is great, but I’m still going to be super nervous on April 10th. I’m probably going to watch Episode 1, and then skip right to Episode 7 because I don’t know whether I pulled it off or not. Everyone tells me I did, but I saw none of that footage. It was the first time I’d ever played a blind person, let alone a blind person who was super physically capable, so we’ll see.
