Confirmation by Kevin Feige
Kevin Feige, the chairman of Marvel Studios, has confirmed that Charlie Cox would portray Daredevil if the character makes an appearance in the MCU. In 2015, Cox made his Netflix debut as the masked vigilante Daredevil. After three seasons on the show, he returned to reprise the role on The Defenders. Netflix’s Marvel series, which were once advertised as part of the MCU, never tied to any MCU stories.
Cancellation of Daredevil
According to fans, the cancellation of Daredevil is considered the most heartbreaking of Netflix’s Marvel programs. In season 3, Bullseye was set up to be the primary villain in season 4, and all three seasons received acclaim.
Fan demand for Cox to play Matt Murdock in the MCU grew once it became evident that Daredevil would not be returning for season 4. All Daredevil casting speculations have officially been put to rest. It is uncertain whether Daredevil will return to the MCU at any point.
MCU and Daredevil
According to Kevin Feige in a recent interview with Cinemablend, if the MCU chooses to incorporate Daredevil, he would bring Cox back as the role. Cox has not yet been cast in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A new actor will not be hired in the part of Charlie Cox, as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige just confirmed on Wednesday night. The whole quote from Feige is here:
“There is a good chance that Charlie Cox would portray the role of Daredevil in any subsequent projects.
We’ll have to wait and see where, how, and when it happens.”
How Will he Return?
Daredevil may fit into the MCU in a variety of ways. Cox was speculated to play Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home after Mysterio reveals his identity. She-Hulk, including Bruce Banner’s cousin Jennifer Walters, a lawyer, might feature Daredevil as a guest star.
Since Jeremy Renner’s Disney+ program is highly believed to include Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin, the most recent project Cox may feature in is Hawkeye. Daredevil may not show up in any of the MCU projects that Feige mentions since Cox isn’t presently cast in any of them.
However, even if Kingpin does turn again, D’Onofrio is expected to reprise his role. Remaking any of Daredevil’s protagonists in the MCU would significantly react to the show’s big fans. Cox’s depiction of Daredevil has made it difficult for Marvel to recast the role. Fortunately, the Marvel Cinematic Universe won’t have to deal with that problem now that the speculations surrounding Cox’s Daredevil future have been put to rest (FIDUCCIA, 2021).
