One of Hell’s Kitchen’s most exceptional superheroes—not referring to Gordon Ramsay of course—is to return to the Marvel Universe. It is unclear when the epic return will be but we are sure to see a familiar face in it.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, confirmed in an interview that MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fans are to see the character of Daredevil in the projects ahead. He eminently confirmed that the actor Charlie Cox, who played the character in Marvel’s Daredevil series from 2015-2018, would absolutely be the actor playing Matt Murdock, a lawyer who had been blinded as a child but his four remaining senses are heightened to superhero levels.
Feige told the outlet that “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,” added Feige—in the most Kevin Feige way possible.
However, it is unclear whether or not Cox—as well as his fellow superhero acts Jon Bernthal (Punisher), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Finn Jones (Iron Fist), and Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones)—would return to the Marvel Universe. Mainly for the reason that Netflix produced their shows under the now-nonexisting Marvel Television umbrella that has been bygone with the current Disney+ programming.
Disney+’s Hawkeye extensively introduced Maya Lopez’s Echo portrayed by Alaqua Cox. Echo is a character closely tied to one of Daredevil’s major antagonists: Wilson Fisk, also known as Kingpin. Confirmed for her own upcoming Disney+ series, Echo might be a perfect scheme to reestablish Matt Murdock, Cox’s character, to the timeline of the present MCU narrative. Marvel obviously appears to be building Daredevil’s insertion to the Marvel franchise sooner or later, based on what we’ve seen so far.
However, fans have gone frantic over the details in Spiderman: No Way Home’s first trailer released a few months ago. A clip features a shot of an anonymous man interrogating Peter Parker, portrayed by Tom Holland. So if the rumors are true, we might be seeing Cox on the big screen before those projects.
But Cox has debunked inclusion in those movies as he said in an interview: “I can promise you those are not my forearms.”
