Even though everything is supposedly connected in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there is a divide between what Marvel does on the big screen and the small screen — including the Netflix series.
But if we believe Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Eric Carroll, getting Daredevil (Charlie Cox) to show up on a future Spidey movie is just a matter of time. After all, as New York City-based street-level superheroes (and friends), Spider-Man and Daredevil often join forces in the pages of the Marvel comics to take down various thugs and supervillains threatening the Big Apple.
In a recent article over at Cinema Blend, Carroll revealed Homecoming won’t feature a specific reference to the Man Without Fear, but if it were up to him, Matt Murdock would cross paths with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) "sooner rather than later." Here’s what the producer said:
“[He's] not specifically referenced in this movie, no. I think that's something we all think would be really fun, and it's definitely a card I would love to see played, if not sooner rather than later. But as of now, it's not referenced in this movie.”
Of course, this doesn’t mean fans (including actor Charlie Cox) will get their wish of seeing the Netflix Marvel hero cross over to the big screen. Not least because of the logistical complexities of getting a character from the TV side of Marvel show up in a film (the movies and TV shows are being developed independently, and that's a major hurdle), but also because Spidey’s continued presence in the MCU is now uncertain.
