After years of rumors and gossip, it’s officially time for the news we’ve all been waiting for: Charlie Cox will return as Daredevil … maybe. CinemaBlend got an official statement from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige earlier this week, and we’re here to share the scoop with you!
Marvel is notoriously secretive when it comes to upcoming projects, so Feige’s unprompted statement came as a shock to fans. He told CinemaBlend:
“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.”
While vague, news as concrete as this is rare coming from the tight-lipped Feige. Even Marvel actors rarely discuss specific plot points or character appearances.
Charlie Cox appeared in Netflix’s Daredevil from 2015-2018, with a stint on The Defenders between seasons two and three. As recently as this October, Cox said he would be more than happy to return as Daredevil. On Sirius XM’s The Jessica Shaw Show, he even said that if Marvel cast someone else the role, “I would go down into my basement, I would find my Daredevil mask and I would hunt them down. I would make them fight me for it.” It sounds like Cox is just as interested in the prospect as fans are.
There are a few upcoming projects into which Daredevil could easily fit. Hawkeye on Disney Plus introduced Echo (Alaqua Cox), a deaf warrior connected to Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. The Kingpin. For a while, there have been rumors that Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) will show up on Hawkeye, so it makes perfect sense to bring in his archenemy Daredevil. Even if his alter-ego doesn’t make an appearance, Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock would also fit into the courtroom scenes of the upcoming She-Hulk, currently in production and starring Tatiana Maslany.
What do you think Feige’s statement means for Daredevil and Charlie Cox? Where will “The Man Without Fear” show up next? Share your theories below!
