Several months ago, rumors suggested that Charlie Cox would return to play Matt Murdock in “Spider-Man: No Going Home” … And that’s what happened!
For those who don’t remember, the star brought the character to life in all three seasons of “Daredevil,” until Netflix canceled the attraction in 2018.
But how does the character fit into the plot of the new arachnid movie?
As fans will recall, “Spider-Man: Away From Home” ended with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) exposed to the world and accused of killing Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).
The hero is subsequently taken into custody by the Damage Control Department, but Peter calls in none other than Murdock.
In the brief scene Cox appears in, he is seated at a table with May (Marisa Tomei), Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), and Peter, telling the hero that the case is essentially over and that he has been cleared.
As they speak, a brick is thrown through the window and you can read the message “Mysterio was right”, but Murdock manages to grab it in the air and reinforces that “he’s a great lawyer”.
After this appearance, it’s obvious Marvel Studios has big plans for the character going forward.
During an interview with Cinema Blend, Kevin Feige said he wanted to save Daredevil in future productions and that Cox would be the person under the hood.
Despite this, the studio’s creative director has not revealed how and when the character will return.
“If you saw Daredevil in upcoming Marvel productions, Charlie Cox would be the actor playing him. Now, how, when and where will he come back … We are still thinking about it. We have to wait to find out.
Regardless, other rumors indicate that Daredevil will play a key role in the upcoming ‘Echo’ series, a character introduced in the ‘Hawk Archer’ series.
Since she has a connection to Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), it’s only a matter of time before she sees the reunion between the King of Crime and Daredevil.
