The rumours gained traction following Spider-Man: Far From Home’s post-credit scene, in which Peter Parker’s identity was made public.
Fans had theorised that Daredevil, aka Matt Murdock, could make an appearance to offer Peter Parker some much-needed legal advice – as he sometimes has in the original Marvel comics.
Many had hoped that by the time Spider-Man 3 came out in 2021, the complex rights issues between Netflix, Marvel and Sony would’ve resolved in order to bring back the beloved character following the cancellation of Netflix’s Marvel shows, which also included Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
Sadly, it looks like this will not be the case.
In an interview with ComicBook, Cox said: “I hadn’t heard those rumours, but it’s certainly not with my Daredevil. I’m not involved in [Spider-Man 3]. If that’s true, it’s not with me. It’s with another actor.”
“As a fan of the Marvel movies, I’ve loved the little stuff where they pop up here and there but because we were on Netflix, we weren’t able to do as much for legal reasons, I don’t know why.
“But I love the idea of Jessica [Jones] and Matt showing up in the background or Matt as a lawyer advising Peter Parker. That’d be really, really cool.”
