Kevin Feige confirms Charlie Cox as Daredevil in the MCU

After months and months of speculation, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has found its Daredevil . As part of the press tour for ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ , Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has confirmed the return of Charlie Cox as Daredevil at some point in the future of the MCU. This is Feige’s first official comment on the casting after a massive fan movement aiming for the actor—who played the lawyer in three seasons of a series on Netflix—to return.

Cox first appeared as the masked vigilante in Netflix’s Daredevil in 2015. The character was part of Marvel’s TV-verse: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher and Defenders. The shows were Netflix originals as well and Daredevil had three successful seasons. But Netflix cancelled the series’ further seasons due to unknown reasons. While initially marketed as being part of the MCU, Netflix’s Marvel shows never connected with any MCU storylines.

Fans were more than disappointed when Netflix’s Marvel shows were canceled. After it was clear that ‘Daredevil’ would not be returning for Season-4 , fans petitioned for Cox to join the MCU as Matt Murdock. It is unknown if Daredevil will ever return in the MCU, but all casting rumors can now be put to rest.

“If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil,” Feige told  CinemaBlend on Sunday. “Where we see that, how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen.”

Cox played Daredevil, a blind lawyer-by-day who fights crime as a masked vigilante by night, for three seasons before Netflix canceled the Marvel Television series at the end of 2018. Netflix said the character would “live on in future projects for Marvel” but the original deal between Marvel and Netflix prevented the character from appearing in any non-Netflix series of film for at least two years following Daredevil’s cancelation.

In light of a number of shows that have been developing, bringing Daredevil over makes more sense than it might have when the Netflix show ran its course. Hawkeye on Disney+ just introduced the character of Echo, a deaf warrior with connections to Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin. And Daredevil has been a consistent thorn in Fisk’s side for decades in the comics. There have been rumors that Vincent D’Onofrio, also from the Netflix Daredevil show, is about to show up in Hawkeye, so pitting Cox against his former co-star is a natural progression. 

Hawkeye is now streaming on Disney+. Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released on December 17. Echo is currently without a premiere date.
