It would seem audiences will have to wait a little longer for the Man Without Fear to meet the Merc With a Mouth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Earlier this month, during a guest spot at German Comic-Con in Dortmund, Daredevil star Charlie Cox stated he’d love to see his character appear in the next Deadpool film, which is currently set to feature Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman reprising their iconic roles in a wild, time-hopping adventure. The actor explained that, with the darker nature of his upcoming solo series Daredevil: Born Again, he felt that a cross-over with the Deadpool franchise would be both fun and possible. Unfortunately, though, a recent interview with TechRadar has thrown some cold water on fans’ hopes that this might actually come to fruition.
When asked about his previous comments, Cox decided to set the record straight. He had only been pondering possibilities, and as of now, he’s “definitely” not in Deadpool 3:
Oh god, what did I say again? Oh yeah, I said that in Germany, didn’t I? I can tell you now, I’m definitely not in Deadpool 3.Charlie Cox
Cox made his MCU debut as Matt Murdock last year, making an important cameo as the lawyer of Tom Holland‘s Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home. He reappeared not long after in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Disney+, acting as a courtroom rival and part-time lover of Tatiana Maslany‘s Jennifer Walters, and wearing the Daredevil suit into action for the first time since the original Daredevil series ended its run in 2018. Now, fans are rabid to know who they might see him team up with next. Daredevil and Deadpool have a history of interacting in the comics, but it looks like a live-action adaptation of their complicated relationship is not currently in the cards at Marvel Studios.
