Ever since Netflix released Marvel’s Daredevil Season 1 last April, it has been of great question whether this new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe could cross over to the films. The writers of Captain America: Civil War recently mentioned that there were no Netflix characters when they wrote the script as Marvel’s Daredevil premiered right before production started.
Recently, Charlie Cox confirmed once again that he has not been pursued by Marvel to appear in any films, “There was no conversation about joining any of the movies.” Although, the actor continued to display interested in appearing on the big screen, “Who wouldn’t want to be in the highest grossing film of all time?”
It makes sense that Daredevil was not brought into the cast of Captain America: Civil War. The film seems to be an emotional culmination of the dynamics between Avengers with introductions to all-new characters like Spider-Man and Black Panther. This movie is juggling a lot of pieces and a fusion of the Netflix characters with the movie characters may have pushed the film off balance.
It still remains to be seen whether Marvel will have Daredevil cross paths with the Avengers. The fans want it and the actors certainly do too. It is definitely early to be discussing this as The Defenders haven’t even been formed yet but once they have, Marvel will have a great opportunity to move forward with a crossover.
Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 was released on Netflix on March 18th, which will be followed by Luke Cage on September 30th. Iron Fist is currently gearing up for production for an early 2017 release. The Defenders, which will see Cox’s return as Daredevil, can also be expected in the same year.
