Just recently, Charlie Cox fans received some good news about the possibility of him returning to the character of Daredevil he started with Netflix.
According to Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios president, Cox would be the only actor to portray Daredevil if the superhero made its way into the proper Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
According to Feige, Charlie Cox would be the actor playing Daredevil if Daredevil appeared in upcoming films. We’ll have to wait and see where, when, and how we see that.”
Cox’s Daredevil is not confirmed to enter the MCU, but Feige’s comment makes it clear that no other incarnation of the superhero will be considered.
Charlie Cox portrayed Daredevil on Netflix
Before Netflix cancelled the show, Cox portrayed Daredevil on Netflix’s eponymous comic book drama for three seasons. Since then, fans have been calling for Cox’s return. It has been reported that Cox’s Daredevil may appear in the series. In addition to this, the Disney+ adaptation of “Hawkeye” has a character (Echo) with a direct relationship to Daredevil nemesis Kingpin (played by Vincent D’Onofrio on Cox’s Netflix series).
Netflix-Marvel series including Cox’s “Daredevil” was cancelled in 2019. Some of the other series include “Jessica Jones” starring Krysten Ritter and “Luke Cage”, starring Mike Coulter.
Deadline asked Feige earlier this year whether or not Marvel’s Netflix series would return. Feige left the door open in his response. In the words of Marvel’s boss, “I have been at Marvel long enough to never say never.”
No fourth season of Daredevil
In August 2019, IndieWire reported that a Netflix contract prohibited Marvel shows and characters from appearing in any non-Netflix series or films for at least two years after cancellation. Charlie Cox can now appear in any Disney-owned Marvel property after the cancellation of “Daredevil” two years ago.
During an interview in May 2020, Cox said he would “love nothing more” than to play Daredevil again. The actor added, however, that it would be virtually impossible for the Marvel series to return for a fourth season.
This is because the majority of the cast and crew have other commitments. “When you make a TV show, it’s so complicated, and people’s schedules are so hard, and contracts can be so complicated,” he explained.
Thus, when you sign up for a TV show as an actor, you are giving up six years of your life. In any case, if you don’t follow through with that, it will be too hard to get all the moving parts together.
Cox can still appear like Daredevil in any other MCU movie or television series even if the fourth season of “Daredevil” does not happen. There is no way for fans to know whether Cox will return.
