With the release dates for so many MCU films being moved around, fans are eager for more news, and as always we come up with theories as to what may happen in the upcoming movies. One of the theories doing the rounds at the moment is the appearance of Daredevil in the upcoming untitled Spider-Man sequel.
With the end credit scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home, it seems that Peter Parker may well be looking for a lawyer. The most logical choice was Matt Murdoch, A.K.A Daredevil. There have been many crossovers in the comics as both are based in New-York and operate on more of a ground-level compared with the likes of Thor and Iron-Man.
This at first seemed unlikely, as there was a period of 2 years, during which Disney was not allowed to use the Daredevil Character after the cancellation of the Netflix show. With the release date for Spider-Man 3 being pushed back, and that 2 year period ending in November, there did seem to be a glimmer of hope as Spider-Man will probably not begin filming until later this year.
Charlie Cox (37), who played the “Man Without Fear” in the Netflix series, had a recent Zoom interview with comicbook.com‘s Adam Barnhardt and had the following to say,
Hadn’t heard those rumors, but it’s certainly not with my Daredevil. I’m not involved in it.
If that’s true, it’s not with me. It’s with another actor.
So it has been confirmed that Charlie Cox is not playing Daredevil, but he did go on to say that he wasn’t opposed to the idea of being in the MCU and went on to say he would love the opportunity to star alongside Tom Holland.
Look, I had a great time. I’m so grateful I got to play that character as long as I did. Of course, I’d love to keep going. I’d love to be involved with it.
This does not mean that Daredevil will not be in Spider-Man 3, only that Cox will not be playing the character. That being said there is still time for the studio to approach him, so maybe we will get to see him in the end?
