@R Jones Daredevil is 5'11 in the comics, which I consider average height (5'9 to 5'11). Honestly, I don't know what you mean, because Matt Murdock was never made to look tall throughout the entire series, except in the devil suit, which would naturally have thicker boots for better protection. If you watch the Season 3 hallway fight, he's shorter than like almost every single dude he has to fight in that scene. And I think that was intentional, first of all he's an acrobatic ninja, so being smaller helps, and second, it's kind of like a Rocky thing, where he may not be the biggest guy around, but he is the man without fear.
R Jones said on 26/Aug/20
Charlie fluffs up his hair and sometimes wears shoes that have very thick soles (even casual, non-dress shoes) to add height and can get about 2" that way. I am a huge fan and I've watched all the videos of interviews and anything else with him online plus I've seen almost everything he's been in, so trust me when I say he's only about 5'8"-5'8 1/2"....in addition to the comment made in an article (by the author who met him in person), there was also a comment made recently by Matthew Vaughn, the director of Stardust in a story about him wanting Charlie to play Golden Age Superman in a project he'd wanted to do in the past, where he states Charlie is only 5'8" or 5'9". As for Daredevil, they employed camera angles/perspective to make him appear taller because he was playing a superhero who was supposed to be about 6'. People put too much emphasis on height, IMO and I feel that colors people's desire to believe he's taller than he is. I think he's perfect just the way he is; there's something really sexy about a man who has self-confidence even when he's shorter.

@R Jones I don't know with the author claim. But he look like 5'10 compare to all his co-star from DD. 5'9 3/4 Elden Henson met by Rob did look 1/4 lower than Charlie. 5'8 is delusional but i have to say when see him standing alone did look to have a 5'9 frame than saying 5'10.
Gaspergoo said on 1/Apr/20
I have watched all the Daredevil seasons and I would say he is between 5'8" and 5'10"......most likely 5'9" or 5'10".....don't see him being above 5'10"..
Jammes said on 11/Feb/20
@R Jones Daredevil in the Comics is only about 6'0 tall in the comics for a superhero thats kinda average
R Jones said on 27/Dec/19
I saw an article that said he was 5'8" (stated by the author, not him); and I had begun to suspect he was not the 5'10" that they state in Daredevil after seeing him in many photos next to other celebs and their stated heights. He also looks quite slender and smaller of build when not bulked up for DD. Doesn't matter to me, but a lot of people want him to be taller since he plays DD.

5’10” is fine!
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Oct/19
Cox is def taller than also '5'10' Colin Farrell.
Frost said on 21/Jun/19
@Tall Sam he has a higher hairline and a larger forehead so front pics will kind of look like this
G123456689 said on 15/May/19
5feet10 no doubt and he looks six feet tall in the daredevil suit. Of course with large boots
Jammes said on 18/Jan/19
@Tall Sam a lot of actors in the industry are bald,tbh sometimes Charlie looks like he wears wigs on Daredevil
Tall Sam said on 5/Jan/19
Elden Henson's character calls Daredevil 5'10" in the last season. Unflattering photo above, Cox looks almost balding, which is not the case I believe lol.
Bobby said on 8/Dec/18
I think Elden Henson can be the full 5'10, but a lot of times on the show, Deborah Ann Woll is wearing heels and she's already above average height/tall for a woman, so he looks shorter.
Bobby said on 8/Dec/18
It's ironic because comic book Daredevil is listed at 6'0.
Matt Shannon said on 25/Nov/18
In pictures with Jon Bernthal he looks almost the same height as him so maybe he could be a little over 5’10?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Oct/18
177.8cm is hard to see it from the difference of a full 178cm guy. But i did have two friend holding strong 5'10 1/8 range so from looking at Charlie the more it seem like the same height with the two strong 5'10ish friend of mine. He could be a good 5'10 1/8 guy just don't bother about the 1/4 or 1/8 he get from doctor office.
said on 29/Oct/18
Never struck me as a 5'10 guy. Immaculate posture can add half an inch.
I saw a friend who met Cox and he thought he was over 5ft 10...
Sonnecker said on 24/Oct/18
Interesting actor. Personally, I'd give him 179 cm/5'10 + 1/2"
TheBat said on 24/Oct/18
Charlie is a legit 5'10" in my eyes. He looks 5'11" on Daredevil several times, mainly due to the boots for his costume.
Demi said on 24/Oct/18
Carlos Danger said on 21/Oct/18
Daredevil S3 claims him to be 5'10 in dialogue.
Frost said on 20/Oct/18
Just saw s3 of daredevil. Foggy refers to Matt Murdock as "All 5ft 10 inches of himself"
Kev said on 18/Oct/18
5'9 if you ask me
Leno179 said on 16/Jul/18
Flat 5'10 seems good.
Junior Hernandez said on 1/Feb/18
5'10.1" precisely not under. Can't vote it. Lol.
Chilla said on 23/Jan/18
Has anyone watched the episode of Daredevil s2 when Charlie is barefoot across from Elden Henson in dress shoes? The camera has them full length right next to each other and even if Elden is wearing 1" soles, he still looks at least 2" taller than barefoot Charlie. The first episode of s2 also has them full length, both in dress shoes, and Charlie is noticeably shorter than Elden. The confounding thing is in s1 of DD, Elden looked shorter than Charlie. Took pics with him after his play off Broadway and I'm 5'7", Charlie was two inches taller MAYBE. 5'10" is my husband's height and Charlie stands a little shorter than that.

Editorrob, you should revive userheights so we can argue bobby and matt179’s height 😂 🤭 😆
They’re somewhere between 5’9.25” and 5’10.25”.
Don Julio said on 14/Jan/18
Solid 178 cm guy no doubt, he might be closer to 5'10 1/4" instead of 5'10"
Anonymous said on 3/Dec/17
nothing over the current listing, looks pretty much identical with Elden Henson
Slim 185 said on 2/Dec/17
@bonny, have you seen the “punisher” yet? I suggest you do, such a great show with great characters.
But yeah. You could make a case for 5’10” for Elden Henson and 5’10.5” for Charlie Cox.
Slim 185 said on 2/Dec/17
AGree with @bobby.
Nik said on 2/Dec/17
He is at least 5'10.25"!
Bobby said on 1/Dec/17
He gave a 5'11 impression on The Defenders, wouldn't be surprised if he was 179cm.
Slim 6' said on 28/Oct/17
Strong 5’10”, even pulled it off in the defenders, he wasn’t much shorter than Finn jones who is a legit 5’11.5” imo.
Slim 6' said on 15/Oct/17
He's definitely a strong 5'10". That's how tall he looked in daredevil compared to Bernthal and Henson.
Slim said on 28/Sep/17
Elden Henson: 177.5
Charlie Cox: 178.5
Jon Bernthal: 179.5
Slim said on 19/Sep/17
I actually see more 178 than 177 tbh, he's definitely closer to 5'11" than 5'9".
said on 13/Sep/17
Rob, can we give Charlie 5'10.25"?
Editor Rob: he can seem 5ft 10-10.25
Truth said on 31/Aug/17
177-177.5cm tall.Never looks like a 178cm tall guy
Tallish89 said on 21/Aug/17
I don't know why he looks shorter to me, first guess was 5'9
Slim 181 cm said on 13/Jul/17
5'10 is my first estimate, but after is 5'10.5. I wouldn't be surprised if he was a strong 5'10 as he can look 177 to 180 throughout daredevil.
said on 6/Apr/17
@james, Elden is a quarter inch shorter than Cox, but you really can't visually distinguish that, which is why they look identical in height.
Here's an image from a height comparison tool which shows two figures, the blue one is 5'9.75 and the pink/purple one is 5'10 exactly. Can you tell that the purple one is taller? You know he is, but can you see it? Here's the image: Click Here
Bobby said on 5/Apr/17
I feel that Charlie Cox and I would be identical in height, I'm also 5'10. I'm a tiny bit under at night though, but I hold 5'10 for most of the day. I imagine Cox would be the same. He looks 5'10 on Daredevil.
S.J.H said on 5/Apr/17
I though cox was taller than 5'10.25 Wes Bentley?
baja74 said on 29/Mar/17
I agree with him looking short on "Daredevil". He is pretty lean as well and gives off more of a taller look in a suit. But he was looking pretty small in the "black mask" episodes.
So, it's hard to tell for sure. I would say definitely in the 5'10" range. It wouldn't surprise me if he was actually 5'9" or even 5'11".
Chris said on 13/Feb/17
I'm a strong 5'10", and I met him at Wizard World St. Louis last year. We had comparable footwear, and I was surprised to find he was a little taller than me, so my estimate is 5'10.75". He looks short on "Daredevil," though, but appearing next to the 5'9" Deborah Ann Woll has a lot to do with that.
Roger said on 27/Dec/16
Could pass for 5'11 in Daredevil. Strong 5'10 is plausible.
DINO said on 23/Nov/16
5'9.95 barefoot 5'10 1/2 with boots
said on 14/Nov/16
Is there any chance he would be a 177.0 cm low Rob ?
Editor Rob: Kai, I think it would be unlikely
james said on 13/Nov/16
He looks basically even with Elden Henson just under 5"10.
S.J.H said on 11/Nov/16
Those PR photo always make celeb look 1-3" shorter. I believe cox is legit 5'10. Michael vartan worst he was 5'11 but look 5'8 range in PR photo with very short legs
S.J.H said on 28/Oct/16
@b4 said on 6/Jul/16
Chill bro. He look 5'8 in this PR Photos not in real
Josh said on 27/Jul/16
Solid 5'10 for sure
b4 said on 6/Jul/16
People who say this guy looks 5'8 are crazy
He's. A real 5'10 he gives the impression. Of being that height and he Doesn't. Look short at all
And most of the scenes in the series he is barefoot
shiko kunha said on 13/Apr/16
he looks 5'9 on netflix
said on 22/Mar/16
ROB, please answer, how much do you think his night height is?
Editor Rob: there is always a chance he goes under 5ft 10
datguy said on 22/Mar/16
in daredevil he looks VERY similar in height to 5'9 elden henson. 5'9.5-.75 in my opinion
said on 22/Mar/16
in daredevil season 2 he's more like 176-177 cm compared to 175 cm elden henson rob, i think you should give him a little downgrade
Editor Rob: maybe it is more that elden might be nearer 9.5 range
Anon said on 18/Mar/16
Shorter then the girl who plays karen page when she's in heels, I think he's 5'8 max.
The_Punisher said on 17/Feb/16
He looks rather short in Daredevil, somewhere in the range 5'8'' - 5'9'' max.
Triplescrew said on 23/Jul/15
Gives off a 5'10" vibe on Daredevil...same as Michael C. Hall (they have similar costumes...)
Josh said on 10/Jul/15
If you look at pictures of him with Elden Henson who is 5'9 and Deborah Ann Woll who is around 5'8-5'9 he's clearly taller than both. This guy won't dip below this listing and is probably a tad more. Solid 5'10.
Y2A said on 1/Jul/15
In two of those photos he looks almost dead on the same height as Bentley, and in the other two he's visibly dropping height.
Whether you want to accept it or not, he's a 5'10 guy.
Bilbo said on 29/Jun/15
he strikes me more as a 5ft9 man
in daredevil rarely looks above it
Owen said on 29/Jun/15
plus, in all of these pictures, Cox has a footwear advantage
said on 27/Jun/15
Have to agree with the majority consensus here, that's not 1.5 inches separating him and Bentley by any stretch of the imagination. It's a negiligible difference.
For whatever reason, this guy's going the way Daniel Craig- a textbook 5'10" man that a vocal portion of people are adamant is only 5'9" for whatever reason.
I mean he's taller than Elden Henson, who is listed as 5'9" and I see no reason to dispute that.
said on 25/Jun/15
Yeah, Sam that's noway 1.5 inches difference...
Anyway, here he is with Wilson F... ehm, Vincent D'Onofrio: Click Here
The angles could play a big part here, but he looks taller than 5'10 if Vincent is really 6'3!
MD said on 25/Jun/15
@Sam, he's standing slightly closer to the camera. Where he to stand exactly next to him, it's a pretty noticeable difference. But, yeah, there is definitely a better-than-not argument to be made for something shorter than a solid 5'10".
Sam said on 24/Jun/15
Not looking 1.5 inches shorter than Wes Bentley in Owen's picture, that's a max 0.5 inch difference IMO.
said on 23/Jun/15
I agree. After seeing more pictures of him in different angles, I concluded he fits in the strong 5'9 area. 5'9 would be the lowest he could be and 5'9.5 should be the highest.
With 5'11.25 actor Eddie Redmayne:
With 5'10.5 Andrew Garfield:
With 5'10.25 Wes Bentley he looks at least 1.5 inch shorter:
Merthick said on 22/Jun/15
I've seen all the episodes of Daredevil and he always looks the same height as Elden Henson
Can't see the 5ft10 everyone is talking about
Sam said on 22/Jun/15
Yeah, could be one of those 5'10" claims who's really around 5'9.5"-5'9.75" like Matt Damon or Chiwetel Ejiofor. He does look 5'10" near Deborah Ann Woll. He's slouching there with Tom Hardy.
MD said on 22/Jun/15
I could see a lower listing for him, most definitely. Though, I'd say in those photos you posted, it seems clear that Tom is standing a bit clearer. I think this argument for him being even over his current listing is out of the question, but I definitely see something between 5'9" and 5'10", just not as low as a flat 5'9".
Crusindude said on 21/Jun/15
He's probably a little over 5'10 barefoot, most likely a solid 5'10.5. And 5'11.5 with shoes on. When he's next to Deborah Ann woll they looked the same height. Even though she wears heels on which make her look even taller since she's already very tall for a woman. And he has on regular shoes.
said on 17/Jun/15Click Here
Rob, here he looks same height/shorter than clearly not above 5'9" actors Tom Hardy and Elden Henson
I would really like an answer convincing me he is 5'10
[Editor Rob: at times you could say he looks a 5ft 9.5 guy.]
said on 5/Jun/15
Rob, does he claim something? He looks average in Daredevil but looks more 5'11 range if Vincent D'Onofrio is really 6'3.5! Btw, great show, watch it ;)
[Editor Rob: I don't know what he has claimed.]
Josh said on 31/May/15
I actually think he maybe a tad more than this. Maybe 5'10.25-5'10.5. Looks a little taller than average. He stacks up pretty well against Vincent D'Onofrio, who's no shorter than 6'3.5.
Drew said on 22/Apr/15
5'10" flat looks right, 5'9.75" is debatable though.
N said on 22/Apr/15
5'10" looks pretty spot on. I doubt he dips below that throughout the day either.
Dan said on 19/Apr/15
I'd say 5'9. He looked that height in Stardust. In Daredevil, he is the same height as Elden Henson, who is 5'9. He wears big boots on the show but his proportions still give off that 5'9 vibe. I'm 5'9 and can normally tell when someone is my height.
hal said on 16/Apr/15
He's only 5'10"? He looks taller. I've seen him in Boardwalk Empire, The Theory of Everything, and Daredevil; and I thought he was around 6 feet tall.
said on 31/Jan/15
With 5'10.25 Wes Bentley: Click Here
With 5'9 (or, if you're right, 5'9.5) Richard Madden: Click Here
5'10 seems fair to me.
Sal said on 13/Oct/14
So either he is taller or that Deborah Ann girl is smaller. At daredevil press conference she is on heels and he is half a head taller than her.
Realist said on 1/May/14
Watching Stardust gives more 5'8.5 ish impression.
anon said on 8/Aug/13
looks closer to about 5 8 or 5 9
Will said on 30/Dec/11
Charlie Cox is 5'8 3/4", not 5'10".
fiveeleven said on 7/Nov/11
Looks mad tall in Boardwalk
said on 25/Jun/11Click Here
looks like he only has an inch or so on De Niro. Downgrade to at least 5'9"
Mike said on 31/Jan/09
I agree, in Stardust Charlie appears closer to Claire's 5'5. But I doubt he's less than 5'8.
Anonymous said on 3/Aug/08
In stardust when avaine(clare danes) is glowing dancing with a tristin (charlie cox) she only looks two inches shorter,this is weird!
*Laura* said on 5/Mar/08
He is sooo cute in Stardust. But when i went on a website dedicated to him, he didn't look as cute, still hot though!!! He does look quite tall in Stardust when he is standing next to Claire, she's around 5'5.
