'Daredevil' Star Charlie Cox Wants Jon Bernthal’s Punisher Back In The MCU


'Daredevil' Star Charlie Cox Wants Jon Bernthal’s Punisher Back In The MCU

Charlie Cox, whom you may know as the actor behind the Netflix interpretation of Daredevil, is keeping quiet on whether or not he's going to be included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor has recently been interviewed by Forbes about his more recent role in Kin but what we're all interested to hear is if his rumoured return to the MCU is happening, or even a potential eventuality.


Although he didn't want to comment either way on whether he'll be showing his face as Matt Murdock again, interviewer Scott King did manage to get him to talk about perhaps seeing his co-star Jon Bernthal join the MCU too. And although Cox didn't want to say if he knew anything was going on with that either, he did say he can't imagine anyone playing Frank Castle better than Bernthal. Agreed.

Fans think that we might be seeing Daredevil again in Spider-Man: No Way Home...



The actor spoke to the interviewer about how the MCU might incorporate some of the Netflix's cast into films after The Defenders series of shows were cancelled one after the other. He says: "I don't know who would do a better version of The Punisher than Jon Bernthal. And that character is beloved, people go crazy for Frank Castle, so if they do it again I hope they do it with him because I don't think it gets better than that."

Additionally, he makes a case for the MCU to allow Krysten Ritter to return to the character of Jessica Jones. The actress played the private investigator in her own series and, as a personal note here, did an incredible job in her first series especially alongside David Tennent as the formidable Killgrave.


Cox says: "But I feel the same way about Krysten Ritter. I know that maybe Jessica Jones isn't as quite as well known as Frank Castle, but what a performance, what a great show that was."

Personally, I'd love to see all three of these actors return to the MCU. The series on Netflix were a little hit and miss towards the end - let's not talk about Iron Fist too loudly shall we, but the casting was often spot-on. Hopefully, we'll be seeing you all once again soon.
