Charlie Cox on MCU Future and Awkward Cinema Experience

Charlie Cox will be returning, in some capacity, to the MCU in the near future. In an interview with the Radio Times, the Daredevil star confirmed that he would resurface as Matt Murdock following a surprise cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home last year. “I know something,” Cox said. “I don’t know much, but I know there will be something else.”

Murdock offered Tom Holland’s Peter Parker legal advice following Mysterio’s damning admission that Parker had killed him and revealed his identity to the world. It was a tiny cameo, but his appearance was entirely unexpected, as Cox remained absent from the film’s promotional material. He was first informed, out of the blue, during the mid-point of 2020 if he’d be interested in appearing in the film. Cox jumped at the chance, describing the opportunity as “amazing.”

However, Cox shared details on a screening he attended in secret for No Way Home, and it’s fair to say, it didn’t go quite as planned.

“So I snuck into a movie theater near where I live and literally stood in the corridor… and, sadly, my experience was it was dead f**king quiet!” he says. “I was so disappointed – my wife was with me and she was recording me, because it’d be fun to have that moment of everyone cheering, and then… tumbleweed!”

In the short term, Cox will be starring in a brand-new crime drama, Kin. He plays Michael Kinsella, a figure freshly released from prison within an Irish crime family caught in a gangland war. Set in Dublin, Aiden Gillen, Emmett J. Scanlan, and Ciarán Hinds star in supporting roles.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released digitally on March 22, and later on 4K UHD & Blu-ray and DVD from April 12. There is currently no confirmation as to when the film will be released on streaming services, however, according to a report from Deadline, it is expected to debut on Starz at some point “over the next six months”.
