Charlie Cox is being eyed as the Daredevil for MCU by Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios
It was a shock for Daredevil fans when Netflix shows were axed. Outside the MCU movies, Netflix’s Marvel character shows has its own niche and popularity. While shows like Jessica Jones, Daredevil and The Punisher were crushed in the studio restructuring fans were distraught. Later Marvel Studio President Kevin Feige assumed the role of Chief Creative Officer and took hold of all Marvel TV shows. With fan movement #SaveTheDaredevil raging seems like the studio and its head has finally made up their mind about bringing Charlie Cox back in the role of Daredevil.
Is it possible to bring Charlie Cox as Daredevil in the MCU?
Whilst, the Daredevil show was pulled down from Netflix, it still held the rights to the character. It’s about time the Daredevil rights return to Marvel from Netflix. This brings vigilante from Hell’s Kitchen back home and ready to be pursued.
Further, with Cox’s popularity as the Daredevil and fans persuasion, the studio has to seriously consider the actor. A few weeks ago WGTC reported about Marvel Head Kevin Feige’s plans to open the conversation with Cox to reprise the role. This was further confirmed by industry insider Daniel Richtman in a recent tweet. And very recently, trusted Industry insider Charles Murphy also corroborated to the reports and further added that the announcement can be made in December. He even appeared on the Save Daredevil podcast.
If indeed the rumours are true then fans are in for a treat. After the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement this will be the second time that a major studio has given into fans demands. The major point of distinction being WB had wronged Snyder and his fans while with Marvel had to wait out the copyright issues.

How Daredevil can be added to the MCU?
It is quite certain that Marvel is set to retcon many characters in the MCU. With Multiverse in tow, it is easier than ever to bring in these characters. For example, there is a leak that suggests Deadpool will be retconned. On similar lines, we can expect Charlie Cox’s Daredevil to make his MCU debut. Undoubtedly other supporting characters of the Netflix show might not find a place in the MCU nor the events that have taken place in the Marvel TV universe.
Nevertheless, there are several entrance points to the vigilante from Hell’s Kitchen to make his MCU debut. Most famously fans had been waiting for him to defend Peter Parker on the run in Spider-Man 3 however Doctor Strange seems to have taken the spot. Nonetheless, a post-credit scene will be apt to make him part of the MCU Phase 4.
Another way Charlie Cox can enter MCU is via the Disney+ series She-Hulk, as in the comic Jennifer Walters and Matt Mudrock have crossover many times. Both are an attorney by the day and fight crime by the night. There had been rumours about Daredevil being introduced in MCU Phase 5 as a part of the New Avengers lineup.
Come what may, fans will be elated once the official announcement takes place.
