Charlie Cox Plays Coy When Asked If McU Movie Characters Could Appear In Daredevil

Fans are forever wondering if there will be a crossover between the movie and TV halves of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Usually people imagine this taking the form of the Defenders hopping over to the big screen for an Avengers film, but sadly, this is something that’s been routinely ruled out by the cast and crew on both sides.

What if we’ve been looking at it from the wrong angle, though? What if the more likely way a crossover could happen is for one or more of the movie characters to jump over to the Netflix side of things? Though there’s been no indication of that happening yet, Daredevil star Charlie Cox seems to have hinted that it’s a possibility.

At Ace Comic-Con Long Island this weekend, the same event at which he made clear that he had not been approached to appear in Avengers 4, the

Charlie Cox Has Never Been Approached To Play Daredevil In A Marvel Movie

Avengers: Infinity War is set to unite every hero on the movie side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe next May, but for some fans it’s just not enough. Ever since the House of Ideas started building its Defenders corner of the McU on Netflix, people have been calling for the likes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage to team up with the Avengers on the big screen.

Unfortunately, we’ve routinely heard – from those involved on both sides – that this is very unlikely to happen. The latest word on a potential crossover only supports this, too, as Daredevil‘s Charlie Cox attended Ace Comic-Con Long Island this weekend where he was naturally asked about playing the Man Without Fear in a movie. As expected, he stated that there are no plans for this to happen and not only that, but he hasn’t even ever had a conversation about it.

Wilson Bethel cast in Marvel’s Daredevil season 3

Marvel has added a new addition to the cast of Daredevil, with Variety reporting that Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie) has signed on for a role in the third season of the hit Netflix series.

According to the site, Bethel will play “an FBI agent who will play a critical role in the conflict between Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk.”

Although unconfirmed, speculation is suggesting that this could be the character of Stanley Carter, a.k.a. Sin-Eater, who in the comics was a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and NYPD detective who became a dangerous vigilante obsessed with killing those who “sin” by abusing authority.

The Punisher Features A Sneaky Black Widow Easter Egg

Spoilers to follow…

All of the Marvel/Netflix shows are only tangentially-related to the movies of the McU, but The Punisher is even more removed than most. For obvious reasons, it would take the viewer out of the story if we were reminded that aliens and gods and whatnot existed in the same world as a gritty, gun-toting vigilante. However, it is a Marvel product and so, The Punisher does feature a very sneaky easter egg that name-checks one of the Avengers.

In episode 6, “The Judas Goat,” Lewis Wilson (Daniel Webber) murders O’Connor – who lied about being a veteran – in a fit of rage. As he’s attacking the guy, we can briefly see a stack of old VHS tapes and DVDs atop O’Connor’s TV, and one of them is titled Black Widow.

‘The Punisher’ Review: Jon Bernthal Excels in Marvel & Netflix’s Latest Team-Up

The Frank Castle we met in Daredevil's excellent second season was a force of nature. Driven to slaughter en masse in the aftermath of the massacring of his wife and two children, Castle was the uncomplicated messenger of death that worked against and in tandem with Charlie Cox's crimson crusader, an embodiment of the thorny philosophical heart of justice without violence or murder. One could even have read the entire season as a recitation on the increasing moralization of killing in the name of peace, whether it be the inner type or the global sort. That's how …

Vincent D’Onofrio returning as Kingpin in Daredevil Season 3, new showrunner announced

When Daredevil returns for its third season, it will see the return of the show’s first villain as Vincent D’Onofrio will be returning for a regular role as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. The Kingpin.

“Vincent is an exceptional actor who returns with the incredible gravitas he brings to Fisk,” Daredevil‘s executive producer and head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb said in a statement.

In addition to D’Onofrio’s return is the news Daredevil is gaining a new showrunner. Erik Oleson, who has worked on Kings, The Man in the High Castle and written several episodes for Arrow, is taking over as showrunner for the third season. He’s replacing Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, both of whom acted as showrunners on Daredevil‘s second season. This isn’t the first time the show has changed showrunners, though, as that duo replaced Steven S. DeKnight from the first season.

Kingpin Confirmed For Daredevil Season 3 As Marvel Appoints New Showrunner

Look away now, Matt Murdock, for Wilson Fisk is returning to Hell’s Kitchen.

Deadline has today confirmed that Vincent D’Onofrio will reprise the role of Kingpin in Daredevil season 3, with Erik Oleson taking over as showrunner. The latter will now pick up the torch from Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who graduated to The Defenders – for the record, only Ramirez saw Marvel and Netflix’s team-up series through to the finish line, after Petrie bowed out early on.

Circling back to Marvel’s Man Without Fear, though, and Daredevil season 3 is finally beginning to take shape. Still no word of a concrete release date just yet – ditto for new instalments of Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones – though it’s since been confirmed that Erik Oleson and Co. will be adapting Frank Miller’s famous “Born Again” comic. It certainly ties into the finale of The Defenders,

Matthew Vaughn and Stardust, 10 years on

Mark Harrison Oct 19, 2017

We salute the 10th anniversary of Matthew Vaughn's wonderful Stardust...

“A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?' Pointless, really. Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.”

Comic book movies are Matthew Vaughn's speciality. Between Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, he's been a constant and eclectic presence as these films have boomed, and if reports are to be believed, his next film could be about either Flash Gordon or Superman.

But going back even further than Mark Millar or Marvel, Vaughn's first comic book movie was his adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, which arrived in UK cinemas ten years ago this week. Before it was published as a novel in 1999, Gaiman conceived the postmodern fairy tale as a 'prestige' comic; the four-issue mini-series

Daredevil season 3 teaser addresses The Defenders finale

Warning. Spoilers for The Defenders follow. Turn back now if you’re yet to see it…

While The Defenders were successful in saving New York from The Hand in August’s Marvel team-up, our heroes didn’t come out unscathed with Charlie Cox’s Daredevil believed to have been killed during an explosion which left the Man Without Fear buried beneath tonnes of rubble. However, as we saw in the closing shots of the miniseries, Matt Murdock is alive and well and ready to be Born Again in the third season of his solo series.

To whet our appetites for the return of Daredevil, the official Twitter account has posted a teaser showing a prayer card from Matt’s funeral, complete with the caption “I’m fine”. Check it out here…

Exclusive: On the set of Jason Flemyng’s ‘Eat Locals’

As far as vampire films go, audiences of the 21st century have a built-in expectation for the fanged creatures. We’ve now been subjected to Twilight, a multitude of meaningless Underworld sequels, and everything in between. What we didn’t expect when visiting the set of Jason Flemyng’s Eat Locals, was to be sitting in a cold Hertfordshire farm staring at severed body parts in jars.

This strange and unusual experience was a good way to set the tone for the film. Flemyng, full of positivity and enthusiasm, was, of course, making his directorial debut in the film. It was quickly apparent that he was keen to make a good impression for his upcoming horror feature, and he managed it effortlessly. The cockney gentleman’s friendly nature easily overshadowed his frantic and busy schedule that day.

Flemyng is one of the most recognizable faces in the British film industry.

The Defenders is Netflix’s least-watched Marvel series in its first month

After more than two years of build, Netflix brought its four street-level Marvel heroes together last month as the streaming service assembled Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage and Finn JonesIron Fist for The Defenders.

While Marvel and Netflix were surely hoping this would be their small screen version of The Avengers, the miniseries met with a mixed reception from fans and critics, and now comes word that it has failed to live up to the success of its predecessors in terms of viewership.

Unlike TV networks, Netflix doesn’t reveal exact viewing figures for its shows, but according to marketing analytics agency Jumpshot, The Defenders enjoyed just 17% of the viewership of Daredevil season 2 – Netflix’s best-performing Marvel season – in its first 30 days. For comparison, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones managed 28%, 27% and 26% respectively. The stats also show that The Defenders

Mark Strong interview - Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Stardust, Kick-Ass

Duncan Bowles Sep 21, 2017

Mark Strong chats to us about Kingsman 2, reuniting with Matthew Vaughn, and the brilliant Stardust...

Spoilers for Sherlock Holmes and Kick-Ass 2 lie ahead. We've also marked a bit in big red letters where we talk about a specific Kingsman 2 spoiler.

While Matthew Vaughn has been the director responsible for a string of fantastic movies, his talisman in front of the camera and a core part of his cinematic journey since Stardust, is Mark Strong. As the superbly villainous (or some might say driven) Septimus, a character just as mesmerising dead or alive, Strong imbued him with a roguish evil that really made him stand out in a packed and stellar cast line-up. His next project with Vaughn saw him take up arms (and fists) against a teenage due in Kick-Ass, doling out a new definition of ‘Daddy issues’ yet giving Frank D’Amico a

The Most Disappointing: Marvel’s The Defenders

Anghus Houvouras on Marvel’s The Defenders

This one kind of smarts. Imagine after all the Marvel Phase One films you finally get to The Avengers and it ends up a poorly written dumpster fire. This was my experience with Marvel’s The Defenders. It’s absolute garbage. A poorly written piece of pure inevitability that never manages to capitalize on its excellent premise.

I could go into vast detail about my thoughts on Marvel’s Netflix offerings, but here’s a brief recap.

Daredevil is the single best thing Marvel has ever done (on TV or film). Charlie Cox is an exceptional Matt Murdock and there isn’t enough glowing adjectives to describe how good I think this show is.

Jessica Jones was a captivating piece of character work slightly undermined by Krysten Ritter’s performance which seemed to rely heavily on a perpetual resting bitch face. Uneven, messy,

Charlie Cox and Brittany Snow set for Stripped
