Matt Murdock celebrates Christmas in a stunning Daredevil cosplay that looks a lot like Charlie Cox's version of the Hell's Kitchen demon.
While audiences wait for the character to return, Matt Murdock celebrates Christmas in a Daredevil cosplay that looks a lot like a Charlie Cox remake of the Marvel hero. Arguably the best thing about the Marvel/Netflix partnership, people were understandably disappointed when it was announced that the partnership would end, as it meant Cox's tenure as the demon in Hell's Kitchen would also end. Thanks to fan outcry and Marvel Studios' recognition of his stellar performance in the role, the actor was eventually brought back -- this time, as a full member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Spider-Man: Unreal. The Way Back and, subsequently, She-Hulk: The Lawyer. Now, he's gearing up for his own Disney+ series.
Given this, expectations are growing that Cox will reprise his role as Murdoch, both on the big and small screens, the latter of which has already been confirmed on Disney+'s 18-episode Daredevil: Rebirth and The Echo Show in 2024. Meanwhile, Reddit user u/Confident_Door8862 dressed up as the character himself to celebrate Christmas. Daredevil is a favorite of cosplayers, but what makes it special is that he actually looks a lot like cox. Check it out below:
What's Next In the MCU for Charlie Cox's Daredevil
Daredevil's Spider-Man: Nowhere Cameo cameo is too brief to get any substantive info on the character's reintroduction. Murdoch was only brought in to help Peter Parker with his legal woes, but it's clear he still has enhanced physical abilities at this point. Meanwhile, his appearance in She-Hulk: The Lawyer is not only more substantive, but also more interesting, as it brings up the idea that Murdoch and Jen Walters might now be a couple in the MCU. This increases the chances of seeing the Hulk's cousin in Daredevil: Rebirth, either as a potential love interest or as a former good colleague. Regardless, these cameos effectively tie Cox's Daredevil to the wider series, allowing would-be fan guests to appear on his show.
Kevin Feige has previously stated that Spider-Man and Daredevil will lead the MCU's pocket streetwear, which could mean that the two New York heroes will team up in the near future. Marvel Studios' take on characters is watered down compared to Netflix, worrying fans who prefer darker, grittier versions Daredevil. At this point, it's still hard to say how different these iterations will be, but for what it's worth, Steven DeKnight, the host of Netflix's Daredevil season 1 show, doesn't seem to mind that She-Hulk: Lawyer's Fool Murdoch, especially because it highlights Cox's charisma as a character.
Currently, the actor is preparing to begin work on his own Disney+ show. Cox said he hasn't read the script for Daredevil: Rebirth, but confirmed that filming will begin soon. While it may be a while before the series hits streaming platforms, Marvel Studios could still leverage Daredevil in other ways, with a Hawkeye spin-off show centered on Alaqua Cox's Echo slated to premiere in 2023. Now, fans can enjoy this fantastic Daredevil cosplay before Cox reappears on the team in the near future.
