Daredevil and Kingpin are back in the MCU, but it once seemed like that might no be the case, with Charlie Cox revealing his skepticism over a return.
This article covers a developing story. Continue to check back with us as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.
- Charlie Cox believed that a Marvel Cinematic Universe return for Daredevil was unlikely and thought it was over.
- He was unaware of the embargo on approaching the actors after the show’s cancellation.
- Cox considered Vincent D’Onofrio’s belief in their return as Daredevil and Kingpin to be delusional.
Star of the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again, Charlie Cox was not as optimistic about a Marvel Cinematic Universe return as was Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio. Cox and D’Onofrio previously appeared together across all three seasons of Netflix’s Daredevil.
Speaking at Wales Comic Con (via GamesRadar), Cox revealed that he thought D’Onofrio was delusional over their chances of playing Daredevil and Kingpin again.
Check out the full quote below:
“I really thought that ship had sailed, you know? I thought it was over. It had been a couple of years since [Netflix’s Daredevil had been canceled]. What I didn’t know was there was an embargo on that. So, there was an amount of time – I think it was probably two years – after the show was canceled before Disney and Marvel could approach us. So, during that time, I didn’t know that. I just thought it was over. And Vincent [D’Onofrio], who plays Wilson Fisk, him and I would chat occasionally on the phone. And he would kind of say, ‘I’m sure they’re gonna bring us back.’ I’d be on the phone being, like, ‘Mate, the guy’s delusional! He’s got to let it go.'”
