Charlie Cox cannot reveal if he returns as Daredevil in Spider-Man: No Way Home; however, he doesn’t deny it, either.
Netflix canceled Daredevil on November 29, 2018.
Comic-book fans and critics praised the grim, violent TV series.
At the time, Jeph Loeb supervised Marvel TV.
Daredevil was the first of Netflix’ adult-oriented Marvel Comics adaptations.
Netflix grouped them together as The Defenders; they formed a group with the same name in a miniseries.
Daredevil broke bones and spilled blood on the show.
Moreover, Charlie Cox’ intense and spiritually deep portrayal as the blind superhero pulled a massive following.
Fans demanded Daredevil‘s resurrection immediately.
They especially wanted Cox to come back.
Although Daredevil was marketed as an MCU series, he never appeared in a Marvel Studios movie.
In fact, he was never mentioned.
It’s all connected? Well, not quite.
When Disney regained Daredevil’s live-action rights, some speculated that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was going to recast Daredevil.
However, I scooped on September 2019 that Feige wouldn’t do that.
In addition, rumors of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil return dominated online gossip since then.
Originally, Cox wasn’t supposed to be in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Charlie Cox Doesn’t Deny His Daredevil Return In Spider-Man: No Way Home
Legally, Marvel Studios couldn’t utilize him as Netflix’ hold on the character hadn’t expired yet.
But then the pandemic hit.
Production delays created an opening.
Daredevil found his way home in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Of course, Marvel Studios wanted this to be a surprise.
Obviously, they ordered Charlie Cox to remain quiet on the matter.
Nevertheless, in a recent interview, Charlie Cox couldn’t deny it.
You know, I also…it makes me…I wouldn’t want to ruin something either way. It makes me a little anxious in that regard. It’s a difficult thing to talk about.
Cox added that:
Everyone is just going to have to wait and see.
Yes, he’s in it.
Guilty as charged, your honor.
You might as well paste a giant LOL under his quotes.
And wink like Agatha.
Charlie Cox may not take Tom Holland’s title of Spoiler-Man, but the Man Without Fear is an ineffective liar.
