Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s surprise cameos in Spider-Man: No Way Home have dominated discussion of the film, pushing another surprise cameo into the background: Charlie Cox, star of Marvel Studios’ Daredevil on Netflix. And No Way Home star Tom Holland has stated that he would love to see Cox’s Daredevil fight alongside his Spider-Man.
“It was incredibly exciting to work with Charlie,” Holland told The Hollywood Reporter. “I loved the Daredevil series, and I think he’s a fantastic actor. He’s done an excellent job with that character, and while it was only a brief appearance, it clearly hinted at what could be.”
“That scene was a real actors’ piece,” Holland said. “We blocked the scene, which was basically just us sitting there reading the lines. It was fantastic. It felt like I was in an acting workshop while working with people I admire, and Charlie was a lot of fun.”
“It was really cool to see him transform back into a character that I adore and that he obviously adores. So it was pretty awesome, and I hope we can find a way for Spider-Man and Daredevil to work together again someday.”
Cox does not dress up as Daredevil in No Way Home, despite the fact that the character is forced to demonstrate his enhanced abilities quickly. In the film, Murdock assists Peter Parker with legal representation after his identity as Spider-Man is revealed and he is falsely accused of murder by Quentin Beck. Murdock has the charges dropped, but Peter is still dealing with issues that aren’t strictly legal. The reveal occurred during Spider-Man: Far from Home’s mid-credits scene.
Throughout their comic book careers, Spider-Man and Daredevil have frequently collaborated. Fisk, also known as The Kingpin in the comics, began as primarily a Spider-Man villain before becoming a major foe for Daredevil.
The film Spider-Man: No Way Home is currently in theatres.
