There were a lot of exciting moments in Spider-Man: No Way Home. In the earliest scenes, we get a cameo by Charlie Cox, who made his grand return as Matt Murdock. The film’s writers, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers recently appeared in an episode of The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith. They revealed that they initially planned to feature the blind lawyer in more scenes, but wanted to keep a stronger focus on Spider-Man.

It does make sense that they wouldn’t want to add more to the already massive film. With appearances from Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, familiar villains from Spider-Man‘s cinematic history, and Doctor Strange, the fact he even appeared seems like a miracle. Even if we only got one scene featuring the character, it was quite the memorable one with his “I’m a very good lawyer” line.
Of course, we hope to see more of Cox‘s character in the near future, as Marvel Studios starts to embrace the Netflix characters. We don’t know what the future has in store, but they might have some big plans for the fan-favorite characters. Here’s hoping they might reveal at some point if we might’ve even seen Murdock suit up as Daredevil at one point in the film#s production.
