Charlie Cox Teases Daredevil's Next MCU Appearance
Daredevil actor Charlie Cox isn't done with the Man Without Fear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he's thrilled about what's coming.
Fresh off his Spider-Man: No Way Home cameo as Peter Parker's "really good" lawyer, Matt Murdock, Cox suggested during an interview with HeyUGuys that audiences have not seen the last of Matt or his crime-fighting alter-ego. "I think at this point I expect to be involved [in the MCU] in some capacity, otherwise it'd be a bit of a weird one-scene moment," Cox said of his No Way Home cameo. The actor clarified that he knows only "a little" about what the future holds for Daredevil, but what he does know, he's "very excited about."
With his No Way Home appearance and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige both solidifying Cox as the MCU's Daredevil, the actor recently opened up about transitioning from Netflix's canceled Daredevil series and into the MCU proper. "I loved every single minute of making the [Netflix] show," Cox said. "And so, to be asked to come back and to be involved in any capacity is absolutely thrilling to me. And I don't want to sound greedy, but I hope I get to do loads more." Cox is even willing to potentially overstay his welcome as Daredevil, saying, "I hope it never ends. I hope it gets to the point where people are like, 'You are too old to be playing this part.'"
Viewership for the Netflix series spiked after the theatrical release of No Way Home as well as the Season 1 finale of Hawkeye on Disney+, which re-introduced villain Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio) from Daredevil. The series garnered 195 million new viewership minutes across its 39 episodes, leading the show's cast and crew to celebrate its resurging popularity. Season 1 showrunner Steven DeKnight tweeted in response to the viewership spike, "Congrats to the cast and crew who poured their hearts into [Daredevil] for three wonderful seasons!"
Spider-Man actor Tom Holland thinks Daredevil should return for more MCU projects as well, and even possibly link up with the web-crawler again. "It was really cool to see [Cox] snap back into a character that I am really a fan of and that he has a lot of love for, obviously," Holland said. "So it was pretty awesome, and I hope that one day we find a way for Spider-Man and Daredevil to team up again."
For those who want to catch up with the Man Without Fear before his next MCU appearance, all three seasons of Daredevil are currently available to stream on Netflix.
