In case Spider-Man 3 didn’t already sound insane enough — you know, given the inclusion of Doctor Strange, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, and the OTHER two live-action Spider-Men, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield — rumors are coming in that Charlie Cox’s version of Daredevil from the hit Netflix series will also appear in the film. Not only has the character been saved, but the rumors indicate he’ll also be involved in the MCU going forward, potentially in his own series.
Murphy’s Multiverse has learned that Charlie Cox, star of the beloved Netflix show, is set to make his grand debut in the MCU in the third Spider-Man film in a deal that has been set in stone for several months now.
What happens beyond that appearance wasn’t elaborated to us but any logical person would think that a series is slated at some point in the MCU’s future. The big question that surrounded the character’s official MCU debut was when and on what platform. With reports of a Hulu and Disney+ merger circulating the web, a fresh Daredevil show with the Marvel Studios brand attached to is certainly a good way to debut that service.

The resurrection of Cox’s Daredevil is a massive win for fans, as Netflix’s Daredevil series was widely beloved by fans of both the character and the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. Given Cox’s return to the franchise, it’s certainly feasible that Vincent D’Onofrio’s equally revered portrayal of Kingpin could make a comeback as well.
