With the rights of the Marvel characters from the Netflix shows returning to Marvel Studios, fans have been eagerly awaiting news of if and when they will appear in the MCU. The likes of Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are just a few of the names fans want to see enter the MCU. The latest reports suggest that we may see some on these characters sooner rather than later in the MCU.
Marvel Studios is looking at bring the likes of Charlie Cox as Daredevil and Jon Bernthal as the punisher into the MCU. The plan is for them to play the same roles but newly, rebooted versions for the MCU. The sources claim that Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin will also return. Luke Cage and Iron Fist though will be recast.
The characters are planned to start appearing over Phases 4 and 5, with Charlie Cox apparently appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home. There are rumours that Krysten Ritter will make an appearance in She-Hulk and Vincent D’Onofrio will feature in the planned Hawkeye spin-off, Echo.
Previous comments from Kevin Feige stating “Everything is on the board” gives some hope to the potential of these reports. Feige has also said:
Whether this turns out to be true we are yet to see but as always we will keep you informed as we hear more. In the meantime let us know if you would recast any of the Netflix characters?
