It’s been an eventful couple of days for Spidey fans, as the first footage of Spider-Man: No Way Home hit the internet and introduced the premise of Tom Holland’s next movie as Peter Parker. It’s a massive trailer for the MCU considering it showed the first look at the return of Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, along with hints that the hero could also face Green Goblin, Sandman and Electro. Aside from that, fans are absolutely convinced that the Netflix incarnation of Daredevil is back.
Charlie Cox fronted an incredible Marvel series for Netflix from 2015 to 2018, and then Marvel ended its deal with Netflix to make television format content on Disney+. However, fans have been holding out hope that Matt Murdock could join the MCU all year, and following the release of the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, they think they’ve spotted him… by his hands.
Yeah… it’s not a lot to go on. One Twitter user is actually comparing hand pictures to figure out if Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock is actually in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The moment in the trailer that got people talking is one that sees Tom Holland sitting at a table being questioned by the police, and another nondescript person banging their hands on a table as Holland looks up at them. Fans really hope it’s a first tease at Charlie Cox’s return to Daredevil:
Back in January, there were rumors that Charlie Cox was on the set of the film, and a month later, fans found a casting call looking for background actors for a courtroom scene near the set of Spider-Man: No Way Home while it was shooting. None of these tidbits are enough to make it concrete that Charlie Cox/Daredevil are back, but it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility given Peter Parker could use a good lawyer right about now.
As the Marvel trailer reminds fans, Peter Parker’s identity was compromised at the end of 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home when Mysterio framed him for the Elemental attack on London at the action-packed finale of the movie. In No Way Home, Holland’s character has had his life turned upside down and surely has an impending trial to try to clear his name. Fans also pointed at another moment in the trailer that could hint at Daredevil here:
So here’s the thing. In WandaVision, Marvel brought in Evan Peters from Fox’s X-Men: Days of the Future Past to be recast as Quicksilver in the series. Though in that case, Marvel has since bought out Fox and the X-Men characters are theirs. When it comes to Netflix’s Daredevil, it’s still streaming on Netflix and therefore a pretty dicey situation on the business side. And understandably so, not everyone wants to get too ahead of themselves that Charlie Cox could join the MCU.
There is something about that moment between Tom Holland and the nondescript hands on the table that does feel like the tease fans have been waiting for. Luckily, we don’t have too long to wait to find out. Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17. Let the four-month countdown begin!
