While Spider-Man: No Way Home has been one of the hottest topics on the internet, there's another name associated with the film that has drawn a lot of attention recently: Charlie Cox. The actor once portrayed Matt Murdock in Netflix's Daredevil, and fans have loved his take on the character, which made it hard to swallow losing him when the show was canceled.

It seems Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige felt the same way, as the Marvel Studios President announced that whenever Daredevil does show up in future projects, it would be Cox behind the mask. This news alone brought tears to the eyes of fans worldwide.

Another former Marvel Netflix star that is aiming for an MCU comeback is Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin. The actor's take on one of Marvel's biggest villains has become iconic, so his potential return is nearly as big as Cox's.

Ahead of his potential debut in an upcoming episode of Hawkeye, D'Onofrio took to Twitter and congratulated his former co-star for his big step into the MCU proper.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently announced that Charlie Cox would be reprising his role of Daredevil at some point in the future within the MCU.

Shortly after that, Cox's former Daredevil co-star Vincent D'Onofrio, who portrayed Kingpin in the series, took to Twitter to congratulate him.

D'Onofrio noted how happy he himself is about the news, saying that "[Cox] put so much into playing Daredevil in such a unique way:"

"So happy for Charlie Cox he really deserves this. He's a great actor and a wonderful guy. He put so much into playing Daredevil in such a unique way. Love this news.

The Daredevil-Kingpin Rivalry Could Be Back

One of the key aspects from Daredevil was the rivalry between Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk. To see that potentially thrive once again will be nothing short of thrilling for fans.

While Cox may be confirmed, technically, Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin is not––even with the heavy teases that Hawkeye has shown through three episodes. The actor has been plenty vocal on social media about the show, which would be strange if he wasn't involved at all.

With Matt Murdock rumored to get his first MCU moment in Spider-Man: No Way Home on December 17, and Wilson Fisk to show up any time now in Clint Barton's adventure, Daredevil fans are about to have an excellent few weeks.
