The actor found the Matt Murdock costume three years after the end of the Netflix series.

Accumulating nearly 7 million spectators in France since its release on December 15, Spider-Man: No Way Home brought together a number of cult characters from the franchise, ranging from villains who marked previous iterations with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. But besides a return to the past, No Way Home is also looking to the future. A future in which newcomers could flourish, starting with Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer by day and a masked vigilante by night. A first appearance in the MCU, after the cancellation of the Netflix series, which makes you want to have more.

Daredevil, Jessica Jones and the others will leave Netflix on February 28!

For the first time since the film’s release, Charlie Cox confided in his return at The Hollywood Reporter. Called in June 2020 by Kevin Feige, he first hoaxed: “I was pretty convinced it was over. Kevin said to me: ‘We have a few ideas, but I wanted to make sure you were, in principle, interested’. And I said: ‘I am very interested !‘ And then I didn’t hear from anyone for two months. It got to the point where I wondered if I hadn’t imagined the whole thing.”

Finally called back to join the shoot for a day, and arrived on the set hidden under a black cape to remain incognito, Charlie Cox put on the costume of Master Murdock, a first since 2018. “I felt very comfortable fitting into this scene. I’ve played the character almost every day for four years. I feel like his essence is deeply embedded in me. I don’t m I’m not too worried about it, but I was still quite nervous on D-Day, which hadn’t happened to me for a while”.

Stripped of his role after the cancellation of Daredevil in 2018, and despite the mobilization of fans for the return of the series, the blind vigilante had to stay in the closet. But with his return to the big screen in the MCU, it’s possible Murdock won’t stop there. “It’s a big moment, not just for me, but for the character. I felt a real sense of responsibility. If that scene works, if it’s cool, if it looks in place, then God only knows where it is. could lead us. And that would be great for me, of course, but also for Matt. I feel attached to him, even if it seems a little strange.” adds the actor.

This one is also gradually entering the MCU, especially with the appearance of Vincent D’Onofrio in Hawkeyereleased on Disney+ at the end of 2021. “I have no idea what each other’s plans are at this point, but I suspect we still have things to do.“, says Cox, before confessing: “I know a little – not a lot – but a little. I imagine, I hope, our worlds will collide again because what we’ve done in the past was so much fun to do, and he’s such an amazing actor“, he says of D’Onofrio. “Every one of our conversations starts with: What do you know? Because you have to be careful. It’s really exciting.”
