Marvel is really doing well on Netflix. The studio's built a strong following for Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Charlie Cox's Daredevil, and Mike Colter's Luke Cage.

Now that a lot of excitement is building up over Netflix's upcoming Marvel superhero team-up series The Defenders, hopes of crossovers between the MCU and the Marvel television universe heighten.

Speaking on the Film and Telly Stuff With Luke and Al radio show (via Heroic Hollywood), Cox is asked whether Matt Murdock would be able to fit right in with the Avengers. The Hollywood celebrity provides the radio show with a pretty realistic answer.

"Marvel TV and Marvel Studios are run by completely different people. But then again, Clark Gregg is in the Avengers so why not? Just for interest, I went back and read Civil War before the movie came out. Because a lot of people had asked me if I thought that based on tone and genre the DD show is in, could that co-exist in one of the Avenger movies. And I went back and had a look to see how the comics approached it and you know, DD can't compete with those guys. He's a street hero and he doesn't have superpowers in the same way but his role as a device within Civil War is really effective and he maintains his character. So I think he could have worked so who knows. Maybe one day."

Cox does make sense – Daredevil is more of a street hero who doesn't have the same powers as the Avengers. Still, it would be great to see a small Daredevil cameo in Avengers: Infinity War, a few seconds would do a lot for fans.

Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled for release on May 4, 2018 while The Defenders releases on August 8, 2017.
