Filled to the brim with exciting cameos, Spider-Man: No Way Home saw Charlie Cox make his triumphant return as Matt Murdock, AKA Daredevil. While he did not suit up in the movie and was only featured briefly, Cox recently discussed his future as Daredevil with HeyUGuys, revealing that he expects to be heavily involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future.
“I think at this point, I expect to be involved in some capacity. Otherwise, it would be a bit of a weird one-scene moment. I don’t know much, I know a little, and what I do know I’m very excited about…there’s a chance it could be the next ten years of my life.”
Making his debut as Daredevil on Netflix back in 2015, fans had hoped that Charlie Cox would be brought back into the fray following the acclaimed series’ cancellation. Thankfully, we all got our wish, as Cox’s lawyer Matt Murdock was called upon to defend Tom Holland’s Peter Parker at the beginning of the record-breaking Spider-Man: No Way Home.
As Cox quite rightly points out, it would be highly unusual for the actor to be brought back for just that small cameo. Thus, the actor is awaiting to be asked back for more. While he reveals that he does “know a little,” which strongly implies that Daredevil will return (many think that Disney+ series Echo is the most likely), Cox was unable to reveal too much regarding his MCU future. Though he does state that it could easily last ten years.
Charlie Cox is as Excited to be Back as Daredevil as Marvel Fans Are
This is not the first time that Cox has discussed his comeback, with the actor sounding just as excited as Marvel fans are to see him suit up all over again. “I mean look, I feel so lucky to have been cast in that role and it is the gift that keeps on giving, I loved every single minute of making the show,” the actor said. “And so, to be asked to come back and to be involved in any capacity is absolutely thrilling to me. And I hope, 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.’”
There are, of course, several upcoming Marvel projects on the horizon as the franchise continues to dominate blockbuster filmmaking. On the big screen, audiences will return to the MCU in the likes of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022), Thor: Love and Thunder (2022), Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022), The Marvels (2023), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023), Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023), and Fantastic Four. While on the small screen, the studio will gift fans with Moon Knight (2022), She-Hulk (2022), Ms. Marvel (2022), Secret Invasion (2022), Ironheart, Armor Wars, and a series set in Wakanda. A standalone Daredevil series is also rumored to be in development.
