With Spider-Man: No Way Home just a few days away from its release, Charlie Cox is currently the most popular man alive in superhero cinema. After appearing as Daredevil in three seasons on the streaming platform, Netflix, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently confirmed that Cox would reprise the role of Daredevil in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, this being said, Feige didn’t comment on whether the Marvel shows on Netflix are actually in the MCU or not – in fact, even those who were involved in the series don’t really know which universe they reside in.
The showrunner on Daredevil season one and director Steven DeKnight confirmed on Tuesday while responding to fan that he has “no idea if the show belongs to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

Earlier, this is what Kevin Feige told CinemaBlend:
“If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil. Where we see that, how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen.”
“If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil,” Feige told CinemaBlend of Cox’s involvement on Sunday. “Where we see that, how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen.”
“Also if there was a chance of that happening in the future, I don’t want to say something that could potentially jeopardize those chances because the people high up at Marvel, maybe they see this stuff or hear what I say and maybe that influences,” Cox added. “I don’t know. I have no idea. I love how passionate the fans are and I feel very, very, very touched that so many of them have gone online and made their voices heard about the desire for me to come back.”
Even Vincent O’nofrio, who played Kingpin in the show and is also expected to return in Hawkeye soon congratulated Cox earlier with a tweet, writing, “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.”
Here’s the tweet by Vincent:
