Here is Charlie’s one scene in SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME that guaranteed Matt Murdock and Daredevil would be continuing within the Marvel Universe. I love this scene and thought I’d use the brick-catch as the featured image. Welcome back Matt Murdock and welcome back Charlie Cox. I wasn’t able to go and see this in the theatre due to my unvaccinated status during the COVID virus, but I heard when the cane came on screen there were tons of screams.
According to many sources, all the Marvel shows with THE DEFENDERS characters of Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), and Frank Castle/The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) are all set to leave Netflix this month. Not exactly sure what this means, but here’s hoping it means we just might be getting extensions of all these shows with all these characters and hopefully the actors. More below.
Netflix Warning Says It’s Removing ‘Daredevil,’ ‘Punisher,’ And All Its Marvel Defenders Shows
Well this is pretty big. Netflix has now started to show a brief message to some viewers who are booting up the Defenders suite of Marvel shows for the first time, saying that they will be removed from the service on March 1. I just tested it out myself, playing Iron Fist episode one, and the March 1 message does indeed appear in the corner, albeit for quite literally, under a second.
The shows on this list would include Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher and the Defenders crossover series. They are a relic of another age before Disney was doing its own Marvel shows on Disney Plus, and they were a partner, not a rival to Netflix.
But now, fans already have realized that the deal between Netflix and Marvel has expired for these characters, hence Matt Murdock appearing in the new Spider-Man and Kingpin showing up in Hawkeye on Disney Plus. And it stands to reason if these shows are coming down off Netflix in March, they are likely headed to either Disney Plus itself, or possibly the Disney-owned Hulu, which could be seen as a better fit for the more violent series like Daredevil and Punisher, which have “adult content” beyond what Disney’s MCU shows have done so far.
I suppose I realized that this was probably going to happen eventually, but those shows are so intimately linked with Netflix, it’s weird to see them leave. That was during a strange era where Marvel TV and Marvel movies were very disconnected, as though all those series were technically in the MCU, there were never really any true crossovers with the movies.
dy seen this happened with two different Daredevil characters, including its star, and more are supposed to return for the upcoming Echo series. There’s even talk of restarting Daredevil altogether. And if that’s happening, you might be able to imagine other characters like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage could reappear somewhere as well in the universe.
Jon Bernthal, The Punisher, said he was only interested in returning to the role if the show would remain as “true” to the character as it has been, ie. being extremely violent, which again, feels like a Hulu thing, rather than being able to exist on Disney Plus. Jessica Henwick recently said in an interview that she turned down a role in Shang-Chi because she was holding out hope that her Colleen Wing Iron Fist character could return to the MCU someday, and that wouldn’t happen if she was cast as a different part (I’d certainly watch a new season of Iron Fist starring her, though not Danny Rand).
So, we’ll see if Netflix or Disney has something to say officially about this. But the notice is real, I’ve seen it myself, and this removal appears to be imminent. I’d prioritize getting through Daredevil seasons 1-3, Jessica Jones season 1 and Punisher season 1 before they leave, if you haven’t seen them yet.
Update: Netflix also has Agents of SHIELD, but I did not see the March 1 message there, while I have now confirmed it shows up on the other six Netflix-MCU shows. SHIELD was originally on ABC, and may be part of a separate agreement
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 Marvel.com, 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.

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.

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.
