Kevin Feige finally put the rumor mills to rest by confirming our greatest wish — Charlie Cox will reprise his role as Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, in future MCU projects. We know; it seems too good to be true!
We don’t have to speculate about forearms in conference rooms or drawings on posters anymore! This is a real thing that’s actually happening, and we have zero chill!
We can’t believe the Marvel Studios President actually said the words, yet here we are celebrating the news. In a recent interview with CinemaBlend, Feige confirmed the vigilante’s return by saying:
“If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil. Where we see that, how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen.”
If you still don’t believe us (and honestly, we can’t blame you), you can watch Feige spill the tea with Producer Amy Pascal at his side. It is telling that Feige would reveal such a bombshell during press for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Cox’s involvement in the film has been as highly speculated (and denied by the actor) as the return of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
It’s difficult not to wonder if such a cameo would be a reality when, in the trailer, Peter Parker walks past a sign that calls him the devil in disguise. The angry opponent of Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man even drew devil horns on the photo.
The speculation would have remained wishful thinking if it weren’t for Feige’s recent confirmation.
There is a high chance Cox will appear in the much-anticipated Spider-Man film that swings into theaters in less than two weeks. There is an equally high chance that Matt Murdock may suit up for the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk.
The Man Without Fear could first appear in the MCU as his vigilante self, but it would be a bit more fun and surprising if we see him as the defense attorney first. Peter Parker will need someone in his corner when things get dicey.
That’s why it’s almost eerily perfect that there is an episode of Hawkeye dropping days before Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters. That could be the episode that lets Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk step out of the shadows.
Moreover, that timing would be pitch-perfect for Echo, which is in development at Marvel Studios.
Feige’s assertion all but confirms D’Onofrio’s involvement with the holiday-themed series. If this is the case, that could bode well for Feige and the MCU’s involvement of other characters who originally appeared in the street-level Netflix series.
We love Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock as much as the next person, but we also love Daredevil‘s supporting cast. That show was the first of Netflix’s venture. It lasted from 2015-2018 and launched other shows, like The Punisher and Jessica Jones.
Those shows, including Luke Cage and Iron First, made way for Netflix’s big crossover event with The Defenders. Most of the shows established actors who cared about their roles and showed it in what they brought to the table.
We want to see more of Krysten Ritter‘s Jessica Jones, Deborah Ann Woll‘s Karen Page, Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle, and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. Now that Charlie Cox is a sure thing, who’s to say we won’t see the other actors in another MCU property soon?
