Charlie Cox, who plays Daredevil, responds to speculations that his character may appear in Deadpool 3. Deadpool 3, which is expected to release in late 2024, will mark Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth’s official entry into the MCU after two successful solo excursions. The movie, slated to be the first R-rated entry in the MCU, will be directed by Shawn Levy, who has previously collaborated with Reynolds on films like The Adam Project and Free Guy. There are still many unanswered mysteries surrounding the movie’s actual plot. Still, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine role will be reprised after he appeared to say goodbye in 2017’s Logan was confirmed a few months ago.
Cox now clarifies if his hero would make an appearance in the forthcoming movie after hinting that Daredevil may have a place in Deadpool 3 given the tone of the film. The actor recently spoke with TechRadar and confirmed that Daredevil won’t be in Deadpool 3 and that his earlier remark was just some light-hearted conjecture. See Cox’s entire response to the situation below:
Is there a chance that Daredevil and Deadpool could join forces in the MCU?
If Cox is speaking the truth, his remark eliminates the possibility of fans seeing Daredevil in Deadpool 3; nevertheless, there is still a chance that the two superheroes may cross paths in the future. Uncertainty surrounds how Reynolds’ obnoxious hero will truly fit into the MCU at this time. There are still some unknowns regarding how closely Levy’s film will be tied to the larger MCU and how Reynolds’ character might fit into more substantial team-up films like Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or Avengers: Secret Wars. Deadpool 3 has already been confirmed to have an R rating and the same levels of violence and language as previous installments.
When more information about Daredevil: Born Again, the planned Disney+ relaunch series for Cox’s hero, are revealed, it could really be clearer whether Daredevil and Deadpool might collaborate in the future. A crossover with Deadpool becomes far more feasible if the program is given the TV-MA rating, which is what his Netflix show received. Given that there haven’t yet been any live-action MCU episodes with R or TV-MA ratings on Disney+, it’s quite likely that Daredevil: Born Again will receive a TV-14 classification, in keeping with previous programs like She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and Moon Knight.
Reynolds and Cox may work together at some time in the franchise’s future, even if Cox’s next relaunch program doesn’t receive a TV-MA classification. It could be decided to script Deadpool in a more family-friendly style for future team-up movies or television programs, which might pave the way for a confrontation with Daredevil. There are still many unanswered concerns surrounding how precisely Deadpool 3 will fit into the bigger MCU, but it appears that Cox’s hero won’t be in the movie.
