Charlie Cox played Matt Murdock in three seasons of daredevil, the first of Netflix’s Marvel series. Despite of daredevil and the other Marvel shows on the platform like Jessica Jones and the punisher It went well with fans and critics alike, and they were unceremoniously canceled when Marvel’s parent company Disney got its own competing streaming service off the ground. For a while there, we despaired of seeing the end of Cox’s turn as the devil of Hell’s Kitchen.
That all changed last December, when both Murdock and his nemesis Wilson Fisk (played by Vincent D’Onofrio) made the jump to the MCU. D’Onofrio starred in the season finale of hawk eyewhile Cox made a brief cameo appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home as attorney for Peter Parker. The door has been opened for more, but so far Marvel has kept things quiet.
But the situation continues to evolve. These Marvel shows are slated to leave Netflix at the end of February, and we’ve just learned that they’ll be hitting Disney+ in March (at least in Canada, and likely soon after in other territories).
Charlie Cox Confirms He’ll Be Playing Daredevil Again
Power daredevil or one of the other series back? Marvel Studios has a reputation for keeping its secrets, so we doubt we’ll hear anything solid until they’re good and done.
That said, Charlie Cox gave an interesting hint about the character’s future as he promoted his new crime drama series. Family. Speak with RadioTimes.comCox has pretty much confirmed that something is on the horizon for Daredevil in the MCU. “I know something,” he said, when asked about Daredevil’s future plans. “I don’t know much, but I know there will be something else.”
Cox also commented on his appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, recalling how Marvel contacted him about this in mid-2020. “I got a call saying, ‘Do you want to come back? Do you want to be there? Spider Man† and I thought, ‘Of course, yes! That would be great. I’m excited. I’d be happy to do that.’ They said, ‘Great, we’ll keep in touch.’ and then I heard nothing for almost two months! I got to the point where I thought, ‘Did I dream this?’ – I definitely got to the point where I was, like, ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen.’ But then I got a follow-up call.”
Fortunately, that phone call led to Cox’s return in Spider-Man: No Way Home† It was a great moment that caused all sorts of hype among Marvel fans… but maybe not as much as you might think. “It’s funny, I got so many texts and so many phone calls about that moment in the cinema,” Cox said. “My cousin sent me a recording of everyone cheering. So I snuck into a movie theater near where I live and literally stood in the hallway… and unfortunately my experience was that it was dead quiet!’
I was so disappointed – my wife was with me and she picked me up because it would be nice to have that moment where everyone would be cheering, and then… tumbleweed!
Don’t worry, we were here cheering.
daredevil will be coming to Disney+ in Canada in mid-March, and likely elsewhere shortly after. Until then you can see Charlie Cox in his new series Family on AMC+.
