Daredevil already has a lot on his plate. He will go head to head with The Punisher and Elektra in the second season of the Netflix series. At some point, he'll team up with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in The Defenders. Are we getting too far ahead of ourselves to wonder what's coming after that?
Like, say, has the man who plays the Man Without Fear, Charlie Cox, received a call about a little Indie film called Avengers: Infinity War?!
"I have not received that call!" Cox told ET with a laugh when we sat down with him at the Winter TCA Press Tour. It's a call he would still love to get, though. "Could you imagine? That would be the coolest thing ever."
The 33-year-old actor admitted that he has "no idea" how crossing over to the big screen would work in the MCU, and then said this:
"Marvel TV and Marvel Studios are two very different things. So even if the character were to appear in that film, that doesn't necessarily mean that I would appear in that film. I will pick a fight with the guy that they choose!"
Maybe, despite what we've always been told, it's not all connected, after all? That said, we have a hard time believing Marvel would reboot Matt Murdoch once again -- not when Cox's version is such a huge success. Plus, all those Easter eggs in Daredevil and Jessica Jones reaffirmed that it is all connected.
In the end, Cox reiterated, "That would be a dream. But that is not something that has been discussed with me at this point."
Rumors of Daredevil -- and the entire Defenders roster -- fighting alongside the likes of Captain America and Thor in Infinity War only intensified when Anthony and Joe Russo, who directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War and will direct the two-part Avengers epic, said the movie featured 67 characters. (Later, they said they were being "figurative.")
"The films are controlled by a group led by Kevin Feige, so they function as a unit," Anthony previously explained to fans. "Other products, even if they are from Marvel, are controlled by others."
"There is the possibility of a crossover, but it's more complicated," he said, when asked specifically about a Netflix-MCU crossover. "As storytellers, we only have control over what happens in Marvel movies, but everything is possible. Spider-Man became possible!"
