There have been many debates on whether the Netflix Marvel series like Daredevil, Iron Fist, and more are part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The recent arrival of Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox seemed to hint at it, but it looks like the Daredevil actor has his own opinion on how Marvel Studios should tackle it. While he doesn’t think they should completely skip on the events of the story, their stories should be reimagined moving forward. His full quote from a panel at the Middle East Film and Comic Con in Abu Dhabi on the matter is:
In keeping with a lot of things in the MCU … It’s a good moment to have a few years [pass] … it’s reimagined. It’s slightly different … It’s ‘born again’.Charlie Cox
The iconic quote is definitely something he enjoys using, as he also used it in reference to the series’ joining Disney+. The inclusion of D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk with the ability to take an arrow to the chest and act as if he was only briefly poked by a needle. He seems quite a bit more powerful than before and Hawkeye seems to know who he is but tries to avoid mentioning his name. He was quite the public figure in Daredevil, which made no one realize who he is a bit odd. Yet, the way the story works, it could still keep bits and pieces from the original Netflix series. We’ll see if their future return calls back to the Netflix series moving forward.
