Actor Charlie Cox, who plays Daredevil on the Netflix TV series, said it “would be a dream” to be a part of the “Avengers” movies. This is significant since “Avengers: Infinity War” Directors Anthony and Joe Russo had recently teased that the two-part film will unite the entire Marvel universe characters to fight the villain Thanos. “Daredevil,” who is a Marvel character, might then be a part of the team too.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Cox said that he has “not received that call,” though he appeared excited about such a prospect. “Could you imagine? That would be the coolest thing ever,” the actor said.
However, Cox, who plays “The Man Without Fear” in the highly acclaimed TV series, is doubtful that such a thing would happen. “I have no idea,” he said. He further explained that “Marvel TV and Marvel Studios are two very different things. So even if the character were to appear in that film, that doesn’t necessarily mean that I would appear in that film.” “I will pick a fight with the guy that they choose,” Cox said laughing.
The prospect of Marvel re-casting Daredevil is possible because of who makes those decisions. In an interview Super Interessante, as quoted by Comicbookmovie, Director Anthony Russo had said that “the films are controlled by a group led by Kevin Feige, so they function as a unit. Other products, even if they are from Marvel, are controlled by others.”
“There is the possibility of a crossover, but it’s more complicated,” he said, when asked specifically about a Netflix-MCU crossover. “As storytellers, we only have control over what happens in Marvel movies, but everything is possible. Spider-Man became possible,” ETonline quoted Anthony Russo as saying.
According to Movieweb, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige restructured his deal with Disney so he wouldn’t have to answer to Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, who oversees the Marvel TV division. This could mean that “Daredevil,” which falls under Ike Perlmutter’s purview, may be re-cast.
There has been no confirmation regarding Daredevil appearing in the two-part “Infinity War” movies. As for Cox, no such deals have been discussed with him yet, he clarified.
