There's no world in which Marvel Studios casts Charlie Cox aside after using him for a small, yet mind-blowing, cameo as Matt Murdock in Sony's Spider-Man: No Way Home (now playing in theaters everywhere). The Disney-owned production banner must have some big plans for the Man Without Fear, and Cox is as excited as the rest of us to see what they come up with.
“I feel so lucky to have been cast in that role and it is the gift that keeps on giving,” the actor said in his first major interview since No Way Home swung onto the big screen nearly two months ago. "I loved every single minute of making the [Netflix] show. 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.’"
In the run-up to No Way Home's silver screen debut, Cox found himself in the same boat as Andrew Garfield. Every other day, fans were insisting that Daredevil had a part to play and the actor found himself denying theories about forearms in the first trailer. "It was a nightmare," Cox said of the experience. Now that the vigilante cat is out of the bag, though, he's back in the dark again...just like the rest of us.
"I don’t know what their plans are but yes, my hope is that I get to do as much as I’m allowed to do, and to be involved," Cox continued. The one thing that being in the MCU allows that we couldn’t really do with the Netflix stuff is that I can now interact with other MCU characters. So, that would be really cool. Crossovers is the thing I would like to do next. I don’t know what that looks like, and I don’t know what they’re planning and all that kind of stuff. But there are some really interesting stories there that I’d love for the character to explore."
With Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin welcomed back into the fold by the last two episodes of Hawkeye, we can only hope that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently setting the stage for a rematch between Mr. Murdock and Mr. Fisk. The upcoming Echo series on Disney+ sounds like the perfect place for a reunion, wouldn't you say?
All three seasons of Daredevil are now streaming on Netflix.
If you're hoping to watch Matt Murdock's cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home again, you'll have to see the film in theaters or wait for the home release. In addition, Deadline reports that the movie will make its television debut on Starz sometime over the next six months.
