Tom Holland Had “So Much Fun” Working With Charlie

Tom Holland, star of SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME had a lot of fun working with Charlie during the latter’s cameo in the successful film. Tom had this to say about Charlie:

Spider-Man: No Way Home’s Tom Holland Responds to Netflix Star’s Surprise Cameo

Spider-Man: No Way Home features a surprise cameo from a beloved Netflix star, and Tom Holland thinks it’s ‘awesome.’

Recently premiering in theaters, Spider-Man: No Way Home brought with it plenty of big surprises. One character return, in particular, has been getting a lot of attention, and Tom Holland himself has weighed in. If you wish to avoid Spider-Man: No Way Home SPOILERS then please, look away now.

Spider-Man: No Way Home lead Tom Holland has at last opened up about one of the many surprise cameos featured in the epic MCU outing. Namely, the return of Netflix’s Daredevil star Charlie Cox, who appears in the movie as alter ego Matt Murdock to help Holland’s Peter Parker out of a legal jam. In a discussion with, Holland described working with Cox as “tho,” and loved teaming up with another superhero in a more down-to-earth style scene.

“We had so much fun working with Charlie. It’s really interesting doing a scene between two Super Heroes that has no real Super Hero stuff in it. Apart from the bit when he catches the brick. It was awesome.”

While the scene does not include MJ, Zendaya revealed that she had been present on set to watch events unfold adding, “I didn’t get to be there….I was there for the behind-the-scenes watching you guys. But I didn’t get to be in it.” Holland clearly loved the opportunity to work with the Daredevil star concluding, “But it was great. I loved working with Charlie.”

There have been rumors surrounding Charlie Cox’s role in Spider-Man: No Way Home for some time now, with the cameo in question featuring Cox sharing the screen with Holland’s Peter Parker, as well as Aunt May and Happy Hogan. Holland had teased Cox’s triumphant return in the past, and while he played coy, many guessed that it would include Matt Murdock. “It’s four people sitting at a table, having a conversation about what it’s like to be a superhero, and it was amazing,” Holland said. “The other day we watched the scene, my brother and I, and our jaws were on the floor.” No doubt many audience members had the same reaction.

Like so many other stars of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Charlie Cox has denied his involvement multiple times over the past several months. “I hadn’t heard those rumors, but it’s certainly not with my Daredevil. I’m not involved in it,” Cox said of his rumored involvement back in September. “If that’s true, it’s not with me. It’s with another actor. As a fan of the Marvel movies, I’ve loved the little stuff where they pop up here and there but because we were on Netflix, we weren’t able to do as much for legal reasons, I don’t know why. But I love the idea of Jessica and Matt showing up in the background or Matt as a lawyer advising Peter Parker. That’d be really, really cool.” It’s likely that no one will ever believe another word he says.

Charlie Cox’s comeback also gives weight to other Daredevil-related rumors that have been floating around, including the recent leak which allegedly reveals a casting grid confirming that a Marvel Daredevil project is indeed now in early development.

Spider-Man: No Way Home finds Peter Parker asking Doctor Strange to help make his identity as Spider-Man a secret following its public revelation, which leads to the multiverse being unleashed, and was released on December 17, 2021.

More on Charlie’s Netflix Series “Treason”

We have more on Charlie’s new series TREASON to begin filming for Netflix. Charlie’s character’s name is ADAM LAWRENCE. The series is like the Richard Madden (Eternals, Game of Thrones, Bastille Day) series The Bodyguard. The series will co-star Oona Chaplin and Olga Kurylenko. And of course CHARLIE COX ONLINE will be along for the ride. More below.

Daredevil star returns to Netflix with new spy series

He’ll be joined by Game of Thrones and Quantum of Solace actors.

Daredevil’s Charlie Cox has a brand new Netflix series in the pipeline, which will also feature Game of Thrones and Quantum of Solace stars.

Cox, who played superhero lawyer Matt Murdock in Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil series, will head up six-part spy drama Treason alongside Oona Chaplin and Olga Kurylenko, with the series coming from Netflix’s UK division.

Deadline reports that the drama series will follow spy Adam Lawrence, who has been trained and groomed by MI6 and seems to have a certain future. But when he is reunited with Russian spy Kara, with whom he shares a complicated past, he ends up questioning every aspect of his life.

With Adam’s wife Maddy also in the picture, the trio begin trying to “expose each other’s secrets, navigate political and diplomatic relationships, whilst hanging onto their personal lives, and those they love most”.

Treason, which is described as “The Bodyguard meets John Le Carré”, has been created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Matt Charman, who is behind Bridge of Spies. Charman is set to write and executive produce the series, as well as act as showrunner, while The Witcher and The Sandman director Louise Hooper will direct the show.

The series will mark the second collaboration between Charman and Netflix, with sci-fi movie The Mothership already in the works.

Cox, aside from his Daredevil and The Defenders role, is known for starring in Boardwalk Empire, The Theory of Everything and Stardust. Chaplin played Talisa Maegyr in Game of Thrones and has also starred in Taboo and Black Mirror, while Kurylenko has had roles in Black Widow and Johnny English Strikes Again.

The series will join Netflix’s ever-growing roster of original content, with the streamer’s live-action adaptation of animation Avatar: The Last Airbender announcing new additions to its cast this week.

Netflix’s biggest-ever movie, The Gray Man, is also on the way, with the star-studded spy thriller, helmed by Marvel directors Anthony and Joe Russo, having recently wrapped filming.

Slowly Netflix Marvel Shows Being Incorporated into the MCU

This post will be duplicated to my Charlie Cox Online, Finn Jones Online, and Mike Colter Online sites as it concerns all three of them. This article appeared in the aftermath of Charlie’s appearance in SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/The Kingpin in Disney Plus’ Hawkeye series. It concerns the incorporation of all the Netflix Marvel shows into the greater MCU pantheon. My only concern is with the confirmation of Charlie and Vincent, there is little doubt to the inclusion of Krysten Ritter as the titular JESSICA JONES, and Jon Bernthal as The Punisher/Frank Castle, there is still huge doubt as to whether the other two of THE DEFENDERS in Mike Colter as LUKE CAGE will be in it. Even less so Finn Jones as DANNY RAND/IRON FIST as to most he is the “weakest link” in them all. For me without Mike and most certainly without Finn I think the presence in this new sugar coated “Disney”verse will not be complete. Recasting any of them would be a huge fail.

The Marvel Netflix Shows Might Be Finally, FINALLY Crossing Over With the MCU

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has only gotten bigger over the past 13 years. Between an absurd amount of movies, several new series on Disney Plus, and a reality-shattering Spider-Man movie bringing in films from other studios, there’s practically no stopping Marvel’s grasp over pop culture. It’s gotten so huge, in fact, that we just might be able to fit in the heroes from the Marvel Netflix shows after all.

The almost-unwieldy canon of the MCU has been cracked open even further by the revelations of series like Loki. With timelines breaking and the facets of the multiverse constantly leaking into each other, the threads connecting shows to movies have become more distinct. The potential for new and highly anticipated entries to the universe like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four is almost entirely apparent at this point. Of course, that could spell good news for the once-defunct Netflix shows.

Will the Marvel Netflix shows return?

In 2015, Daredevil began streaming on Netflix. The gritty, violent adaptation of Marvel’s “Man Without Fear” received critical acclaim during its first season. The show also kicked off an entirely new era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one that shone a spotlight on lesser-known heroes in the pantheon. Daredevil and its successive shows tackled heavier themes and storylines while still taking place in the canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher were all shows that expanded the MCU at large, all while proving that the superhero franchise could have a darker side to it. This experimental side canon went strong for almost four years, but in that time, it became increasingly clear that these grittier heroes weren’t going to cross over with the movies any time soon.

While the New York City-based shows were able to feature nods to the larger canon — namely discussing the Chitauri attack and namedropping an Avenger every now and then — there were never any signs that the shows could ever interact with the movies more openly. In March 2015, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb even stated at the time that the goal of having a big crossover was a ways away.

“We have to earn that,” Jeph Loeb said about the potential for Avengers showing up alongside the Marvel Netflix heroes. “The audience needs to understand who all of these characters are and what the world is before you then start comingling in terms of where it’s going.”

By 2019, all hope seemed lost. The Marvel Netflix shows seemed to fizzle out unceremoniously with the third and final season of Jessica Jones in 2019. As per Marvel’s contract with Netflix, the former would have to wait two years after cancellation before being able to do anything with the characters.

But by 2021, Marvel Studios has wasted little time in getting these heroes back on their feet. Vincent D’Onofrio recently reprised his role as Wilson Fisk / Kingpin in Hawkeye on Disney Plus. With the resurgence of a fan-favorite character from Daredevil, the floodgates are officially open for the Marvel Netflix shows to make a comeback. Though they may not see any new seasons on Netflix, they may just show up in the many upcoming Marvel Studios projects in the future.

07/31/2017 – “Marvel’s The Defenders” New York City Premiere

Sometimes when building a website and getting things up and running, things get forgotten. For some reason, one of which I’m a little perplexed, is to why I left out Charlie’s part in attending THE DEFENDERS New York premiere back when I first set this site up. It’s just one of those things you kind of knock yourself upside the head wondering how and why it was forgotten. So here are Charlie’s photos from the event. I managed to get Finn Jones‘ ones done and Mike Colter added. Anyhow please enjoy. A bit too late, but never bad.
