Eagle-eyed fans are inspecting shots of arms and hands from the “No Way Home” trailer because they’re convinced they belong to Charlie Cox.
Cox starred on three seasons of Netflix and Marvel’s “Daredevil” as the New York City lawyer, Matt Murdock, by day and vigilante by night.
If so, that would mean his Marvel character, Matt Murdock, may appear in the “Spider-Man” sequel.
Additionally, fans also think this may be a shot of Murdock. This one feels less convincing to us.
Why would Murdock even be in ‘No Way Home?’
In the trailer, we see Peter (Tom Holland) handcuffed and, presumably, in police custody. He’s being accused of murdering Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) at the end of 2019’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
Fans believe it’s possible Murdock could act as Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) lawyer in the new film.
Peter is from Queens after all and Murdock presides in Hell’s Kitchen. It’s a few quick subway stops (or Spidey swings) for Peter.
If a Marvel superhero needs a lawyer and you had the chance to use Murdock it sounds like the perfect opportunity for a fun cameo.
Could we see the return of Matt Murdock? It’s certainly possible.
In February, Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige hinted we could “perhaps someday” see characters like Jessica Jones and others from Netflix shows enter the MCU one day.
Mashable reported as of November 2020, the rights for Netflix’s Daredevil have reverted back to Marvel. Theoretically, Charlie Cox’s version of the character could play in the MCU sandbox.
Out of all of the Netflix Marvel series, “Daredevil” was among the most popular.
When Insider attended a tribute event for Marvel’s Stan Lee in October 2019, Cox was in attendance and mentioned the “Save Daredevil” campaign on stage to our surprise.
For now, we’ll have to wait to see if the masked vigilante may appear in the upcoming film.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” hits theaters on December 17.
