Netflix's cancelled Marvel TV shows may not have all been perfect, but they all phenomenal casting. Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Jon Bernthal as The Punisher, Kristen Ritter as Jessica Jones. Netflix's casting was so good that fans are still begging for these actors to reprise their roles in the MCU.
Rumours have circulated that Charlie Cox will return as Matt Murdock in both She-Hulk and Spider-Man: No Way Home. If that is the case, the beloved superhero actor will not confirm it. If he does, he's afraid Marvel will kill his return.
Charlie Cox scared Marvel will change Daredevil plans
In an interview with Forbes, Cox explained that he won't comment on any involvement with the MCU. Marvel's penchant for secrecy is at an all-time high. Because of this, Cox is worried that speaking out about any involvement with Marvel would result in plans getting cancelled. However, the actor never outright denied any MCU involvement.
“My answer is no comment, I don’t know what’s going to happen. I genuinely don’t know. If there was a chance of that happening in the future, I don’t want to say something that could potentially jeopardize those chances. The people high up at Marvel, maybe they see this stuff or they hear what I say or blah, blah, blah… maybe that influences it. I don’t know, I have no idea. I love how passionate the fans are and I feel very, very touched that so many of them have gone online and made their voices heard about their desire for me to come back and maybe in the future that might happen, and that would be great. Who knows? We’ll see.”
A running trend
Cox is not the only actor terrified of accidentally outing any of Marvel's plans. It’s all but confirmed that Andrew Garfield is returning alongside Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man in No Way Home. However, confirming any of that would likely kill any chances of him appearing in the future again.
Despite photographic and video evidence of Garfield on the set of No Way Home, the actor dares not to confirm it. In a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, Andrew Garfield claimed the footage was “photoshopped”. Until his appearance is confirmed through official promotion, the actor won't say anything.
The same is true of Charlie Cox. If he is involved with MCU projects and he confirms his appearance, his future at Marvel could be cut short. On the other hand, if he isn't involved and stays quiet, he might be trustworthy enough to take up the cowl again. It's a tough business.
