Ever since Netflix canceled its Marvel shows, fans have been dying to see those heroes once again; this is a dream that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed would come true with Charlie Cox's return as Daredevil in a future project. If rumors are to be believed, his reappearance could happen as soon as Spider-Man: No Way Home. 

Talk about former Marvel stars getting another shot at their characters has been a regular topic of conversation during interviews. Jon Bernthal and Krysten Ritter have been among those quizzed about the possibility, with neither giving away any information (assuming they had anything to hide).

With Cox coming back into the picture, the return of other actors is all but a given at this point. But who, and where, can fans expect to see them crop up? The head of Marvel Studios has something to say about it.

Will The MCU Bring Back More Netflix Heroes?

In an interview with Screen Rant, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige touched upon the possibilities of seeing more former Netflix heroes return to the MCU fray.

Feige cryptically teased that "whenever a character comes back into the Marvel sandbox, it becomes another [storytelling] tool:"

"I always say that whenever a character comes back into the Marvel sandbox, it becomes another tool in the storytelling ability of the MCU. As I said before, the good news is, all will be revealed when people finally watch."

The Future of Netflix's Marvel Heroes

Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock is rumored to partake in a few upcoming projects, including No Way Home, She-Hulk, and Echo. The actor is jumping into the deep end when it comes to his return; while his former show was hardly connected to the MCU, now, he's set to interweave between at least three projects before he potentially gets his own spotlight.

When it comes to some of the other Netflix heroes, one place where audiences could see Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones show up again is She-Hulk, maybe even reuniting with her Defenders ally. The character is a private investigator, so her paths could cross with Jennifer Walters in one of her cases.

While the advocation for Finn Jones' Iron Fist to return certainly isn't high, at least some incarnation of the character would fit nicely into a future Shang-Chi storyline. After all, the first film teased the possible existence of K'un L'un and its dragon, Shou-Lao.

Another possibility for the character would be the team-up that everyone has wanted for over half-a-decade now: Heroes for Hire. It would be a perfect place for not only Iron Fist to make up for his lackluster public opinion but also pave the way for the re-introduction of Luke Cage.

Then there's Jon Bernthal, who has been vocal about wanting to reprise his role of Frank Castle––provided Marvel Studios does it right. The character could fit perfectly beside the darker MCU characters like Blade and Black Knight and maybe even Ghost Rider whenever he eventually makes his way into the picture.

Until then, fans can tune into Spider-Man: No Way Home when it hits theaters worldwide on December 17, 2021; hopefully, all the whispers about Charlie Cox end up being true.
