Of all the Marvel characters to have their own Netflix series — Mike Colter’s Luke Cage, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle (Punisher), and Mike Colter’s Luke Cage, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle (Punisher), Finn Jones’ Iron Fist, and Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock (Daredevil) — fans have been desperate to see Cox reprise the role in the MCU. And based on comments from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, those fans will be getting their wish.
Speaking to CinemaBlend in advance of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Feige confirmed that when The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen makes his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he will be played by Charlie Cox, who featured as the character in three seasons of Netflix’s hit series Daredevil.
“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,” Feige told CinemaBlend.
Feige’s comments certainly come at an interesting time, as many fans expect Cox’s Daredevil — or, at the very least, Cox’s Matt Murdock — to appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, perhaps as Peter Parker’s self-appointed attorney.
Spider-Man: No Way Home — the fourth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 following Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Eternals, and 27th film overall — stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, Zendaya as MJ, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, and Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin. While Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men have yet to be confirmed, odds are they’ll show up, too. The film is scheduled to hit theaters in the United States on Friday, December 17.
