One of the biggest Marvel names in pop culture conversion right now is one who hasn't even seen the screen for three years; in fact, he's basically not even in the MCU yet: Daredevil. Charlie Cox brought Matt Murdock to life in the titular character's Netflix show, which lasted for three seasons before getting canceled. Now, the actor will be getting a second chance at embodying the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.

Recently, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced that if Daredevil shows up at some point down the line in the MCU, then it would be Charlie Cox behind the red cowl.

If rumors are to be believed, the character is set to make a cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home, a film that releases in just over a week. When Far From Home initially premiered, many fans jumped to the idea of Matt Murdock representing Peter in trying to clear his name. It looks like Marvel may have had the same thought.

Beyond Spidey's next adventure, Daredevil is also potentially going to play a role in both She-Hulk and Echo, possibly even paving the way for his own rebooted solo project once again.

If there was any aspect of the Netflix-Marvel Era that got the most love from fans, it was Cox and his take on the bling vigilante. Now, just ahead of No Way Home's premiere, the film's star, Tom Holland, revealed he's amongst those who were huge fans of the character.

Tom Holland Is a Daredevil Fan

In an interview with InverseSpider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland addressed Feige's Daredevil announcement, sharing that he's actually a big fan of Charlie Cox's portrayal of the Man Without Fear.

The actor stated that "[he] loved Daredevil," and "[he] thought Charlie Cox was excellent." Holland even gave a shutout to Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin:

“I loved Daredevil. I really, really enjoyed it,” Holland says. “I thought Charlie Cox was excellent. I thought Vincent D’Onofrio did a fantastic job as Wilson Fisk. It was really cool to see a darker side to a Marvel character. That fight scene in the hallway was spectacular. I know some of the stunt guys that built that sequence. I thought it was a great show.”

The Spider-Man star, sadly, revealed that "[he doesn't] think [he] saw the second season," but saved himself by once again reminding everyone "[he] definitely remember[s] enjoying the first season."

Daredevil's (Almost Certain) Return Is Nigh

Matt Murdock is almost certainly returning; the question is just when and where.

There's another character returning who is stirring fan excitement and that's none other than Cox's former co-star Vincent D'Onofrio. The actor played Wilson Fisk in the late Netflix Daredevil series and quickly became a fan favorite as he brought the Kingpin of crime to life.

As for where the character may show up, all eyes should be pointed at Hawkeye, which only has two episodes left. This means that within two weeks, fans across the world could have two majorly missed Marvel icons back in their lives.

Maybe one day, fans could see Tom Holland's Spider-Man team up with Cox's Daredevil as they take on Wilson Fisk. Hopefully, dreams will come true.

Hawkeye releases weekly every Wednesday on Disney+, while Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters worldwide on December 17.
