Disney+ didn’t waste any time to announce that the former Netflix shows created by Marvel TV were making their way to the streaming service. It was quite the announcement, as not only did it imply more adult-themed content for the streaming service, but also further pushed the return of these characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Daredevil’s Charlie Cox made his return in Spider-Man: No Way Home and was quite excited with the former Netflix series joining Disney+ with a cheeky comic reference in an interview with ComicBook.com.
This was actually when this news that you talked about came out, I was texting with some of the guys from the show and the text I wrote was, ‘Born Again.’Charlie Cox
He was also asked about the future of his character, such as a potential PG version of the character even after the darker take on Netflix. While he does point out that he’d prefer the darker stories and that his character isn’t the same as Spider-Man, he is still open to the idea and thinks Marvel could make it work.
I wouldn’t put it past the folks at Marvel to be able to accomplish that. I’m such a fan of everything they’ve done so far, I wouldn’t underestimate them at all. So if they wanted to make a more PG version of Daredevil, I back them to find a way to do where it feels totally in keeping with everything we’ve done. And maybe there’s a little less blood, maybe there’s a little whatever, but I back them to do it.Charlie Cox
Their next Disney+ series is offering a promising darker take within that universe while also sticking to a parental control-free rating with Moon Knight. While the series might not be as dark as the previous entries, it doesn’t seem like they are open to the possibility. Deadpool has also been confirmed to become an R-rated project, which might hint that Marvel Studios is exploring beyond their PG fare. For now, it’s just fun to speculate.
