Phrases like ‘born to play the part‘ and ‘impossible to replace‘ might have been overused recently, but they are quite apt when it comes to Charlie Cox. Since his breakout role as Matthew Murdock/Daredevil in Netflix’s Daredevil, the actor has garnered a massive fan base for his stellar performance as the Man without Fear. While the show was canceled after three jaw-dropping seasons on the streaming platform, Charlie Cox marked his first appearance in the MCU as Matt Murdock, the lawyer, in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Since then, it has been a topic of wide contention regarding the future appearances of Cox’s Daredevil.
After a successful decade of movies and building an interconnected universe, Marvel Studios rapidly paved the path for TV series to introduce new heroes on its brand new Disney+ streaming platform. Since Charlie Cox’s appearance in No Way Home, it is being expected that the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen might once again appear in the upcoming MCU shows like Moon Knight and She-Hulk before Marvel Studios decide to launch the fourth season of Daredevil, or in any other larger capacity. While there has been no official update on the future of Cox’s Daredevil, the actor himself seems to be quite excited for his future in the MCU, after keeping the big secret for months prior to the release of No Way Home.
In a recent interview with Australia’s Supernova Comic-Con, the actor has revealed that he wishes to be a part of more crossovers in the future. Here’s the full comment:
“I don’t want to sound greedy, but I hope I get to do loads more. I hope I get to be involved way, way more for many years. I hope it never ends. I hope it gets to the point where people are like, ‘You are too old to be playing this part.”
“I don’t know what their plans are, but yes, my hope is that I get to do as much as I’m allowed to do, and to be involved. And it’d be really fun, the one thing that being in the MCU allows that we couldn’t really do with the Netflix stuff, is that I can now interact with other MCU characters. So, that would be really cool. Crossovers is the thing I would like to do next. I don’t know what that looks like, and I don’t know what they’re planning and all that kind of stuff. But there are some really interesting stories there that I’d love for the character to explore.”
Apart from his desire to be a part of more crossovers, Charlie Cox also mentioned that during his time at Netflix, there were very few opportunities for crossovers as the streaming site had very limited characters. But with Daredevil officially being a part of the MCU, the possibilities are truly endless, with the chance to once again share the screen with Spider-Man, and maybe, Deadpool too.
All three seasons of Daredevil are now streaming on Netflix.
