When it comes to the whole fan debate over whether the television and Netflix shows for Marvel prior to Disney Plus are actually canon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe or not, neither side will budge (even though there is countless current evidence that proves one side of the debate, but I digress). One thing that both sides adamantly agree on, though, is that most of the Netflix castings were perfect and we would all love to see these actors return to these roles in the MCU. Arguably the most successful at their role has been Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil. And, with all of the rumors surrounding his return in Spider-Man: Far From Home and beyond, the actor has come out with a response to said rumors that helps cover him for a future return.
While speaking with Forbes, Cox put it out there that he doesn’t want to jeopardize any possible chance of a return, as he would love to come back:
“My answer is no comment; I don’t know what’s going to happen. I genuinely don’t know. If there was a chance of that happening in the future, I don’t want to say something that could potentially jeopardize those chances. The people high up at Marvel, maybe they see this stuff or they hear what I say or blah, blah, blah… maybe that influences it. I don’t know, I have no idea. I love how passionate the fans are and I feel very, very touched that so many of them have gone online and made their voices heard about their desire for me to come back and maybe in the future that might happen, and that would be great. Who knows? We’ll see.”
While some would say that this answer is Cox simply keeping the wool over our eyes for a return he has supposedly already filmed, it sounds like he has yet to be approached but would definitely be open to donning the horned cowl again. Cox is definitely a fan favorite, and with rumors of Vincent D’Onofrio returning as Kingpin, his return is all but imminent.
Hopefully we get some kind of official word sooner rather than later on these returns, positive or negative, so that fans can prepare properly for the future. Fingers crossed that some of these rumors end up being true, as fans would rejoice at the return of Charlie Cox as Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin.
