Tom Holland can’t keep a Marvel secret to save his life. Time and time again, the 25-year-old British actor just gets way too excited about his upcoming Marvel Studios movies, leaking out just enough for diehard Marvel fans to extract the point. Never — and I mean, never — underestimate the brainpower of the Marvel fandom.
In an interview with Empire, Holland says, “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 revealed that the three people were Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May, and Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan, but keep mum on the fourth person, which he isn’t at liberty to reveal. Although it would be easy to assume the fourth person to be Dr. Stephen Strange, it’s unlikely because Holland would be under no obligation to keep it a secret in this situation.
When the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer released, Marvel fans collectively lost their minds. The entire trailer was just so much to take in — with some details being clear as day and some surprises still lurking in the shadows. There was one scene in particular where Peter Parker seems to be in an office with a mystery person — a vaguely familiar person. We see the arms and shirt sleeve of someone who’s a known New York City ally to Spider-Man, someone known to roll up his sleeves like that, and also works in law (meaning he is no stranger to an office). Yes, Matt Murdock (or maybe you know him as Daredevil).
Will Charlie Cox return?
A fan favorite, Charlie Cox plays Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the Netflix series Daredevil. During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s Pop Culture Spotlight podcast, Cox was asked what he would do if another actor was cast in the role of Matt Murdock/Daredevil. “I would go down into my basement,” Cox replied. “I would find my Daredevil mask [and then] hunt them down. I’d make them fight me for it.”
“If there was an opportunity for me to come back as Daredevil, whatever that would look like, I imagine it would be a reimagining of the character and the show,” Cox said. “If they choose me to do it, there are going to be some elements that are of course the same. Or they might choose someone else and reboot it all over again. You’ve got to be careful what you wish for. You come back and it’s not as good or it doesn’t quite work or it’s too much time has passed. It doesn’t quite come together in the same way. You don’t want to taint what you’ve already got. If we never come back, you’ve got these three great seasons and our third season was our best reviewed. So, the trajectory was up. I am tremendously proud and grateful for what we have.”
As it always goes (for just about everyone except for Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo), the Marvel cast and crew are extremely good at staying tight-lipped about their upcoming films. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have both denied any involvement with the third Spider-Man installment and it would be no surprise if Charlie Cox is doing the same.
