Spider-Man: No Way Home featured many memorable characters, and one of them is Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock. Cox's inclusion came as a surprise for Marvel fans since both the actor and the character directly came from Netflix's Daredevil series. Amidst all the Multiversal madness in No Way Home, the legal troubles of Tom Holland's Peter Parker came to light due to being framed for the murder of Mysterio, but thankfully, Murdock came to the rescue to sort it all out. 

In the months leading to the MCU film's premiere, Cox's involvement was one of the rumors, and this was further amplified by fan theories about his apparent presence in No Way Home's first trailer. Although the Marvel actor debunked the speculation, his potential appearance in the movie made headlines. 

Ultimately, No Way Home's theatrical release confirmed Cox's Marvel return as the Man Without Fear, thus putting the rumors to rest. While the threequel only gave a limited role for the Marvel hero, the actor teased the possibility of seeing Daredevil alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes, thus setting the stage for more future appearances down the line. 

Now, an official look at the character has been revealed.

Cox's Daredevil is Part of the MCU's Future 

After leaked images and low-resolution photos of Charlie Cox's big-screen debut as Matt Murdock, a high-definition look at the Marvel hero has officially arrived.

Cox's appearance in No Way Home might be a limited one, but many would agree that his role was vital for the plot to move forward. The character's brief scene also established his status as Daredevil while also teasing his future (potentially in Armor Wars) due to his encounter with Jon Favreau's Happy Hogan. 

Aside from the Don Cheadle-led MCU series, there are still other projects where Cox could appear as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.

It was previously rumored that Cox would make his presence felt alongside Tatiana Maslany's Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk, with the character donning a comic-accurate superhero costume. Given the character's connections to Echo in Marvel Comics, it's also likely that Cox could appear in that series as well. 

While fans wait for the character's next appearance, this image serves as a fitting reminder and celebration of Daredevil's arrival in the MCU. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home is still playing in theaters worldwide.
