There is little doubt that fans are delighted now that Daredevil has returned and is a part of the new series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. However, there was one person who did not expect Matt Murdock to actually join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Charlie Cox has just admitted that he was not expecting the Devil of Hell's Kitchen to be brought into the MCU after the Netflix show was cancelled.

Back in 2018, it was announced that Daredevil would be cancelled after three seasons. The news was a shock to fans who were expecting the Man Without Fear to get at least three more seasons. Nevertheless, the cancellation led to people taking to social media with a campaign to bring back Daredevil. It eventually worked as Marvel Studios brought back Charlie Cox in Spider-Man: No Way Home and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.

It has been a stressful yet rewarding journey for Daredevil fans and Charlie Cox knows it. He lived through it himself, admitting to Cinemablend that he was shocked when he received the call from Marvel boss Kevin Feige asking him to put on the suit again.

“It had been years. I put the suit on for the last time in – I didn’t know it at the time – but it was in 2017. And Kevin called me in 2020,” Cox said. He then shared how he and Daredevil co-star Vincent D'Onofrio had previously discussed the possibility of reprising their roles as Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk, respectively.

“I was joking earlier on like all that time Vincent and I would chat and he was convinced they were going to call us, and I was like, ‘Buddy, like, you’re delusional. It’s over. It’s been over for a long time, like, we’re not playing these characters anymore.’ He’s like, ‘They’re going to call us,’” Cox shared.

It's great to know that it all worked out in the end for Charlie Cox who is now expected to lead a new Marvel series Daredevil: Born Again. In the meantime, Cox appears as Matt Murdock in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law every Thursday.
