Charlie Cox Discusses His Future as Daredevil in the MCU


 

Charlie Cox is on the road promoting Kin, his new AMC+ production. The premise of the show was based on a Peaky Blinders-style gangland war involving an Irish family. As with other performers who appear in the MCM, the British actor was not spared the MCM treatment from interviewers while on his press tour promoting the film. The actor was asked about his future role in Hollywood’s most profitable brand, The Marvel Cinematic Multiverse, in an interview from the Supernova gaming and comic convention.

 

“I mean look, I feel so lucky to have been cast in that role and it is the gift that keeps on giving, I loved every single minute of making the show. And so, to be asked to come back and to be involved in any capacity is absolutely thrilling to me. And I hope, I don’t want to sound greedy, but I hope I get to do loads more. I hope I get to be involved way, way more for many years. I hope it never ends. I hope it gets to the point where people are like, ‘You are too old to be playing this part.’

 

“I don’t know what their plans are, but yes, my hope is that I get to do as much as I’m allowed to do, and to be involved. And it’d be really fun, the one thing that being in the MCU allows that we couldn’t really do with the Netflix stuff, is that I can now interact with other MCU characters. So, that would be really cool. Crossovers is the thing I would like to do next. I don’t know what that looks like, and I don’t know what they’re planning and all that kind of stuff. But there are some really interesting stories there that I’d love for the character to explore.”

 

 

Cox also discussed how difficult it was to carry himself prior to the release of No Way Home after signing a strict non-disclosure agreement with Sony:

 

“It was a nightmare, I don’t think I’ve done any interviews, I still don’t know what the rules are. Obviously, it’s now known that I’m in Spider-Man. So, yeah. But more than that, I don’t know, and the little I do know, I’m obviously not going to say. But the only thing I would say is that for a long time, I was asked these questions and I genuinely had not heard anything. For years, I have been asked questions about returning as Daredevil, and the genuine truth was I 100% assumed that was gone, that ship had just sailed. I didn’t hear from any of the folks at Marvel for a couple of years. It does now look like I was lying for a long time, I actually wasn’t, I was only lying for a little bit of time. You still don’t want to spoil it for people.”

 

As the first rumors of Cox’s involvement began, he wasn’t lying, but after that, the NDA, of course kicked in, so he had to. Regardless, the Daredevil star did mention something else about Daredevil in the interview, as he observed that his Netflix series supporters had showed their support for him.

 

“I mean, I hadn’t heard that, but if that’s true, that’s really cool, that’s really cool. And I know I have incredibly vocal, passionate fans. And the #SaveDaredevil campaign continues to blow my mind in terms of what they are willing to do and capable of doing. So I know that. But to think that they will watch other stuff that I’m involved in and support that, that’s very exciting and it makes me feel very good.”

 

Kin is currently streaming on AMC+.
