Charlie Cox’s Unexpected Marvel Return Said I Thought It Was a Joke
Charlie Cox’s Unexpected Marvel Return Said I Thought It Was a Joke

Marvel Studios supervisor Kevin Feige isn’t known for crank calls, but that’s what Daredevil actor Charlie Cox thought happened when the studio contacted him for a big-screen cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Three years after Netflix canceled Marvel’s Daredevil TV series after three seasons, effectively ending the Defenders-verse, Charlie Cox found himself back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Almost another year later, he returns to the small screen in Thursday’s episode of She-Hulk and is due to reprise the Matt Murdock role in Marvel Studios’ animated Spider-Man: Freshman Year and in the live-action revival Daredevil: Born Again for Disney+.

Corman and Ord co-created the crime drama Covert Affairs for USA Networks and served as co-showrunners on Universal Television’s The Brave and The Enemy Within on NBC, as well as The CW limited series Containment.

The duo takes the reins on the revived Daredevil from first season showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, the second season co-showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, and third season showrunner Erik Oleson.

Since Netflix’s cancelation of Daredevil in 2018 — ahead of Disney’s launch of its own streaming service in 2019 — fans have rallied around efforts to #SaveDaredevil, an online and offline campaign created to continue the series with the original cast.

Marvel’s Daredevil also starred Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, also introducing Jon Bernthal’s Punisher and Élodie Yung’s Elektra into the TV side of the MCU.

Charlie Cox continues, “So if they wanted to make a more PG version of Daredevil, I back them to find a way to do where it feels totally in keeping with everything we’ve done. And maybe there’s a little less blood, maybe there’s a little whatever, but I back them to do it.”The streamer recently debuted Marvel Studios Original series Moon Knight, and will soon release Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Secret Invasion.
