Fantastic news for fans of Netflix’s Daredevil broke overnight, after it was confirmed by Kevin Feige himself that Charlie Cox is the MCU’s Daredevil. After Daredevil was cancelled back in 2018, when plans for Disney+ were set in motion, fans of The Man Without Fear were left disappointed. This bombshell was especially disappointing considering that the third season left us on somewhat of a cliff-hanger regarding Bullseye being introduced as the main antagonist in season 4. Ever since then, the question of Daredevil in the MCU has been left hanging, until now.
MCU mastermind Kevin Feige recently did an interview with Cinemablend, where he confirmed Daredevil would not be recast in the MCU. If/when the character next appears in a Marvel movie or original series, he will in fact be played once again by Charlie Cox. Whilst this is exciting news for fans of that version of the character, it should be noted that this doesn’t necessarily mean that Cox will appear in the MCU anytime soon, as he has not officially been casted in any upcoming projects. All this really means is that another actor will not play Matt Murdock within the MCU. Check out Feige’s direct quote regarding the matter below and you can decide for yourself what this could mean.
“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.”
As I said above, Charlie Cox has yet to be officially cast as Daredevil in any upcoming projects, that said though, there are a few different spots where he could re-emerge within what is currently taking place in the MCU. It has been heavily rumoured, (and backed up by a leaked photo,) that Charlie Cox will appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Matt Murdock. The rumour goes that after the film opens with Peter Parker being wanted for the murder of Mysterio, Matt Murdock will be the lawyer brought in to clear his name. We won’t know until next week whether or not he will appear as Daredevil in the upcoming Spidey sequel or just as Matt Murdock, though I’d say it is pretty certain that he will indeed show up in some form.
Over on Disney+, the upcoming She-Hulk series centres around Jennifer Walters, who just happens to work as a lawyer in her day job. Could we see the two cross paths in the courtroom at some point? Hawkeye is also currently streaming to the platform every Wednesday and the previous episodes have hinted that The Kingpin could be making an appearance in a later episode. If Kingpin does indeed show up, does that mean we could also be getting an appearance from The Devil Of Hell’s Kitchen?
As is the case with Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio has not officially been cast in any upcoming MCU properties at the time of writing. That said, we can presume that if Cox will remain as the MCU’s version of Daredevil, then D’Onofrio will more than likely remain the MCU’s version of Kingpin. Hawkeye is certainly dropping a lot of hints towards Kingpin and at this point, if he doesn’t show up, then a lot of people are going to be left disappointed.
So with all of that being said, what do you make of Feige putting rumours and worries to rest regarding the future of Daredevil within the MCU? Are you excited to see the character onscreen again? Let us know in the comments section down below.
