Charlie Cox revealed that Marvel Studios knew fans would be happy to see Daredevil in Spider-Man : Homeless, so they designed the scene so fans could fight without letting him talk. Concentrate without interrupting the flow of the movie.
Many were excited to see Cox return as Matt Murdoch/Daredevil in Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man : Nowhere to Go. Cox confirmed that while filming his brief cameo in “Spider-Man : Homeless,” director Jon Watts didn’t let him speak during his first appearance in the film, so He framed it so that the fanbase could celebrate his unexpected return to the movie world, knowing he’s got credit for the critically acclaimed Netflix series Daredevil.
During his Megacon appearance, Cox detailed what happened behind the scenes while filming Daredevil’s Spider-Man : Homecoming cameo. “The way they shoot the scene, I’m talking – I think Jon Favreau said something – and then my line, but they ask me to put down my cane and wait for the camera to turn before I say my line. Said, ‘This is weird. Why would you do that? It felt like I should have said it.’ He said, ‘No, it’s because people would be so excited. The director was ultimately right, knowing that Cox last played Daredevil in 2018, when Netflix abruptly canceled the show, much to the dismay of fans.
Cox’s cameo in the film serves two purposes : First, Spider-Man : Nowhere to Go There will be numerous cameos throughout the film, callbacks from previously canceled TV or film series. The second is that Cox hasn’t finished playing Daredevil in the MCU, and knowing how strongly Cox’s performance as Matt Murdoch has resonated with the fan base in all the series he’s portrayed, It was a relief. Cox has since reprized the role in She-Hulk and will reprise his role in an upcoming Disney Plus series titled Daredevil: Born Again.
One could argue that Marvel Studios relied so much on fan service in Spider-Man : Nowhere to Return that one has to question the need for certain characters to return in brief cameos a decade after their release . While other nostalgia callbacks are better utilized, such as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, from a plot point of view, it doesn’t make much sense to have Murdoch back, except as Peter Parker in Spider-Man : Far From Home event. While it was great to know at the time that Cox’s iteration of Daredevil would be back, would his cameo in that film carry any significance when fans get the MCU version portrayed by Cox not long after?
Root for Cox as he was a team player throughout. He’s excited to be back in the role, if only for a few minutes. Sure, he might have been put off by how they executed his cameo, but he still did, and now he’s back to being the superhero he embodies. Everyone wins, and that’s the point here.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is available to stream on Starz.
