Make a statement as specific as he has ever been, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirm with Cinema that actor Charlie Cox will reprise the role of Matt Murdock/Daredevil in any future appearances of the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This comes after long-standing rumors about Cox’s return in the near future Spider-Man: There’s no way home.
Feige said ahead of the premiere of the new Spider-Man movie later this month:
If you get to see Daredevil in the upcoming movies, then Charlie Cox will, yes, be the actor playing Daredevil. Where we see it, how we see it, when we see it, still has to be seen.
Though that might sound like something you’ll hear from Cousin Greg’s mouth Heir, for the typical Feige, it’s very unusual.
Cox played masked bodyguard in Netflix Daredevil , which spanned three seasons from 2015 to 2018, quickly became a fan favorite and helped spark interest in the character. Daredevil also opened the door to several other MCU shows on Netflix, all of which came to an abrupt conclusion around the time that the Mouse House’s in-house streaming service, Disney+, was gaining momentum.
It is expected that all the shows established by the MCU in the near future will stream on Disney+ and the latest episode of Hawk Eye made a connection between the past and present of the franchise, as it included a nod to the Kingpin. This happened after the rumors going around Vincent D’Onofrioback as the character he originally played, you guessed it, Daredevil only.
For his part, Cox did not offer a conclusive comment on this. Asked again about being able to appear in There is no way home, I said Forbes recently, “I don’t want to spoil anything for the fans in this way. My answer was, ‘No comment.’ I don’t know what’s going to happen, I really don’t know”.
Even without the introduction of the multiverse, we will see the full discovery in There is no way home, Disney and Marvel have found interesting ways to bring back old characters. WandaVision people were surprised when it was reintroduced Evan peters‘version of Quicksilver’ from the now Disney-owned X-Men franchise, by approaching fantasy reality. Previously in the MCU, this character was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
With new (and legal) creative avenues opening up every day, it’s theoretically possible Ben AffleckDaredevil’s version has somehow found a way to work again. Imagine Affleck’s Matt Murdock stumbling across Happy Hogan in the MCU and completely confused as to why he resembles his best friend, Foggy Nelson. Both characters, you see, were played by Jon Favreau.
As for Cox’s return, we only have a few more days to wait until we find out. Spider-Man: There’s no way home slated for release on December 17th and is expected to set off a number of box office record.
This after calling the ending “happy with bittersweet”? We’re getting dangerously close to vandals, Tom!
