As Vincent D’Onofrio remained on stage following the Echo portion of Marvel Studios’ panel at D23 Expo, he told Kevin Feige that he wanted to talk about “his show.” D’Onofrio’s remarks drew a roar from the crowd, but that roar turned deafening when Charlie Cox walked on stage asking if D’Onofrio meant he wanted to talk about Cox’s show. When the crowd settled, the pair of stars, along with Feige, went on to briefly tease Daredevil: Born Again, the 18-episode streaming series that will put Cox back in the driver’s seat of his own series since the 2018 cancellation of Netflix’s Daredevil.
After a year of wondering if word of his return to the dual roles of Matt Murdock and Daredevil was true, Cox’s appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home generated a great deal of excitement about the future of the beloved character. Shorty after, rumors of his now confirmed appearance in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law began to swirl, followed by rumors of an appearance in Echo and then, at July’s SDCC ’22, Feige made the thrilling announcement that the studio was going ahead with Daredevil: Born Again. What started with the smallest of cameo appearances for Cox has now grown into a project the size of which Marvel Studios has never attempted on Disney Plus. Cox will be a busy man for the next couple of years and while at D23, he talked about joining the MCU and he was incredibly excited.
This feels like we’re just getting started here. This is all overwhelming. This feels like we got invited to the party we always wanted to be invited to. To be starting on this journey again. To have the body of work that we have behind us, but we take some of that and the experiences we’ve had and now tell more stories again…it’s like a dream come true.Charlie Cox
Cox’s enthusiasm for the role seems to match the enthusiasm fans have for him in it. Rumors persist that his character’s appearance in Echo will not only dovetail into Daredevil: Born Again, but also that he may not be the only Marvel Netflix character to appear, meaning he might not be the only one invited to the party…
Daredevil is set to appear in an upcoming episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, streaming on Disney Plus.
