It’s still “will he or won’t he?” When it comes to Charlie Cox making his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel boss Kevin Feige continues to tease the possibility. In all three seasons of Marvel’s Daredevil series on Netflix, Cox played Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer who fights crime at night as the title guard. Fans have been demanding Cox’s return to the role elsewhere in the MCU since the series ended its run on Netflix in 2018.
Speaking of various upcoming Marvel projects with Collider, Kevin Feige addressed the possibility of Daredevil’s debut in the MCU. When asked directly whether there is any chance for Cox to return to the role, Feige gave this vague but optimistic answer.
“I look at everything that has happened before, whether it’s our movies, whether it’s Marvel entertainment television series, especially comics, video games, and cartoons. All of these are available as inspiration for the future of Marvel. So is this.” Comics have worked for many years. So we’ll see. “
The Marvel boss was then reminded that a lot of socialmediagossips really loved Charlie Cox in the role, hoping he would come back, but Feige just nodded his head and smiled.
These comments follow another joke from Feige about the possibility of the characters from the Netflix Marvel shows being revived in the MCU. With so many other Marvel projects already in development, Feige stated that the company’s focus at this point remains on those titles but bringing them back Daredevil and the other Netflix shows are still a possibility. “I’ve been to Marvel long enough to never say anything,” he told Deadline on Sunday.
Along with Daredevil, the other Marvel-based Netflix Shows included Jessica Jones with Kristen Ritter, Luke Cage with Mike Colter, Iron fist with Finn Jones and The punisher with Jon Bernthal. The crossover series the defenders also brought many of these characters together. These shows are all considered part of the MCU, although Cox and the others have not yet been featured in any of the Marvel films or shows outside of Netflix.
Feige doesn’t seem in a rush to get Cox into the MCU, but given the continuing popularity of the actor’s setting Daredevil, chances seem high it will eventually happen. There are rumors that he will appear in alongside Tom Holland Spider-Man 3but that has not been confirmed. In his new Collider interview, Feige also discussed the possible introduction of the X-Men also in the MCU.
“There was a lot of discussion, as you can imagine. And we have a good feel for where it’s going and when it’s going, but that all remains to be seen,” said Feige, adding when asked that nobody as yet Wolverine was occupied.
The MCU will return with the premiere of WandaVision on Disney + on January 15th, followed by the debut of The falcon and the winter soldier on the streamer in March. Meanwhile the MCU’s next film is Black widow, will premiere on May 7th. For the rest of Feige’s interview, see Collider.
