The end of November marked a huge moment for MCU Fans. Netflix’s hold on Daredevil came to an end as the rights reverted back to Marvel Studios giving Kevin Feige the ability to do as he pleases with the character in his Cinematic Universe. Since being cancelled after its third season, Daredevil fans have petitioned, begged and created social media buzz for Marvel Studios to #SaveDaredevil. The hope has been for Marvel to continue the use of actor Charlie Cox in the role. Thanks to a recent report, fans can rejoice as it suggests Kevin Feige will be giving fans exactly what they want.
Murphy’s Multiverse, a site that has an impressive track record when it comes to Marvel related scoops, has revealed that Charlie Cox will indeed portray Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the MCU, making his official debut in the upcoming Spider-Man 3. They go on to say this deal has been in place for a number of months and currently only Cox will be returning at this time.
If Cox’s return is in fact true, this would add yet another fan favorite casting choice to an already fully stuffed Spider-Man film that currently boasts Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx and Benedict Cumberbatch. Not to mention the possible returns of Kirsten Dunst, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
We have not yet been able to substantiate the claims by Murphy’s Multiverse, but as stated above they do have a strong track record with Marvel Studio scoops and this one isn’t exactly out of the realm of being possible. Perhaps with the Disney shareholders meeting this week an official reveal could be made there? But as always treat rumors as such until they are confirmed by the studio or those involved.
