Daredevil Star Says He's Not in Spider-Man 3

Many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been clamoring to see the characters from Netflix's Defenders series get a revival on the big screen, hopeful that Charlie Cox would appear as Daredevil in a future film from Marvel Studios. Many fan theorized have guessed that Cox could possibly show up as the lawyer Matt Murdock in the sequel to Spider-Man 3, possibly offering young Peter Parker legal counsel after his secret identity was basically outed to the world in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Because of the complicated rights issues for characters like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Punisher, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage, that seems unlikely. But Marvel Studios and Disney will once again retain those rights very soon, however that doesn't mean they're planning to revive Cox's version of Daredevil so soon.

Ahead of our Daredevil Quarantine Watch Party on Thursday, we met up with Cox via a quick Zoom chat and according to him, if Daredevil's going to be in Spider-Man 3, it's not going to be the iteration of the Hell's Kitchen vigilante we saw him play on Netflix for three seasons.

"I hadn't heard those rumors, but it's certainly not with my Daredevil. I'm not involved in it," Cox tells us. "If that's true, it's not with me. It's with another actor."

But that doesn't mean he doesn't want to show up in an MCU feature at one point. The actor went on to tell us he'd love having the chance to team up with Holland in a future property. "Look, I had a great time. I'm so grateful I got to play that character as long as I did. Of course, I'd love to keep going. I'd love to be involved with it," the actor adds.

"As a fan of the Marvel movies, I've loved the little stuff where they pop up here and there but because we were on Netflix, we weren't able to do as much for legal reasons, I don't know why," Cox concludes. "But I love the idea of Jessica and Matt showing up in the background or Matt as a lawyer advising Peter Parker. That'd be really, really cool."

Our Daredevil Quarantine Watch Party begins Thursday at 9pm Eastern with showrunner Erik Oleson and nearly the entire cast of Season Three. Click here for more details and keep tuning back to ComicBook.com through the rest of the week for even more behind-the-scenes Daredevil goodness.
