Charlie Cox Confirms Daredevil Will Return in the MCU
The Netflix Daredevil starred Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, a brutal vigilante out to stop Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), the Kingpin. Viewers loved the darker superhero. However, when Marvel deemed Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Punisher, and The Defenders all non-canon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans were sad to see Cox leave. When Spider-Man: No Way Home included a surprise Daredevil cameo as a lawyer to Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Aunt May (Marissa Tomei), fans celebrated. And it seems like he is not finished yet. Stardust actor Charlie Cox confirmed that his Daredevil will return for “something else” in the MCU.
Charlie Cox plays ‘really good lawyer’ Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, in the MCU
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland and Zendaya play Peter Parker and MJ caught in a crowd when Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) revealed his secret identity to the world.
Peter needed a lawyer. And in Marvel Comics, superheroes either turn to Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk, or the Nelson and Murdock’s Daredevil.
Charlie Cox only appeared as Daredevil in the MCU for a brief scene. However, it opened the door for hundreds of possibilities. In addition, the Disney+ Marvel show Hawkeye saw the return of Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin, battling Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) and Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner).
Fans first saw Cox and D’Onofrio in Daredevil Season 1 in April 2015. However, after Netflix announced no Daredevil Season 4, fans worried they would never see the actors in the roles again. Now, Cox has confirmed they might see a lot more, after all.
And with Daredevil coming to Disney+, more fans can see the series.
Charlie Cox teased more Daredevil in the MCU after ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’
While Holland’s Peter Parker went off to negotiate a spell with Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and team up with The Amazing Spider-Man Andrew Garfield and the Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire Spidey, Cox’s Murdock disappeared from Spider-Man: No Way Home.
However, Charlie Cox revealed in an interview that “something else” was in the works for Daredevil.
“I know something,” Cox teased in an interview with RadioTimes.com. “I don’t know much, but I know there will be something else.”
While the Kin and Stardust actor Charlie Cox did not drop any details about the Man Without Fear’s role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, his ‘really good lawyer’ will return. However, he worried that he might not even appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home at one point.
The Matt Murdock actor thought he dreamed the ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ cast call
While Charlie Cox says that Marvel Studios has something in store for Daredevil in the MCU, he did not know if he would even appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
“I got a phone call saying, ‘Do you want to come back? Do you want to be in Spider-Man?’ and I was like, ‘Obviously, yeah! That would be amazing. I’m thrilled. I’d love to do that.’ They said ‘Great, we’ll be in touch.’ and then I didn’t hear anything for, like, two months! I did get to the point where I was like, ‘Did I dream this?’” Cox recalled.
Charlie Cox worried if his Daredevil would appear in the MCU at all in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The Marvel movie already had plenty of cameos.
“I definitely got to the point where I was, like, ‘I don’t know what’s gonna happen,’” he said. “But then I got a follow-up phone call.”
And now, fans cannot wait to see what comes next for Daredevil, Kingpin, and even the Defenders.
