Charlie Cox, known for his portrayal of the Daredevil in the popular 2015 – 2018 series on Netflix, has been brought up by many MCU fans awaiting the upcoming film, Spider-Man: No Way Home. The reason is due to the belief that Matt Murdock will be making an appearance in the film at Peter Parker’s lawyer, defending him against accusations brought up in the wake of his secret identity being revealed to the public. This type of story was brought up before in the comics and the 1990s Spider-Man tv series, which is why fans believe he’ll make an appearance.
Charlie Cox played the character in the highly acclaimed Marvel Series, which originally was meant to be apart of the MCU, along with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and The Defenders. When Disney started their own competing steaming service almost all connections made to the show were seemingly erased. Charlie Cox was praised for his portrayal of the character and the most screen accurate version compared to the 2003 20th Century Fox version played by Ben Affleck.
The brief shot that started all the rumors
But in a recent interview, Charlie Cox put those rumors to rest:
“I can promise you those are not my forearms. As a fan of the Marvel movies, I’ve loved the little stuff where they pop up here and there but because we were on Netflix, we weren’t able to do as much for legal reasons, I don’t know why. But I love the idea of Jessica and Matt showing up in the background or Matt as a lawyer advising Peter Parker. That’d be really, really cool.“
Again with Marvel scrapping all connections to the Netflix shows the likelihood of Cox and company appearing in any future MCU projects is highly unlikely. Most likely a new actor would take over the role if Matt Murdock were to reappear.
Funny enough most people even forget about some of the other Pre-Disney Plus Marvel shows like Agent Carter or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as their impact wasn’t directly connected to the films, unlike upcoming projects like Moon Knight or She-Hulk, which will have a more significant connection to the MCU going forward.
Even though we might not see Daredevil are you still excited to see the latest Tom Holland Spider-Man?
