Kevin Feige confirms Charlie Cox will stay on as Daredevil

Kevin Feige has announced that Charlie Cox will continue to play Daredevil, which will come as no surprise to Marvel fans who have been following various behind-the-scenes speculations and intriguing MCU leaks.

Charlie Cox recently said that he expects to still continue on in the role, one day.

Feige spoke very carefully, as he spoke to CineBlend:

“If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil. Where we see that how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen.”

Personally, I don’t think we’ll be waiting too long to see Matt Murdoch. After the events of Spider-Man: Far from home. Peter Parker is going to need a lawyer. Murdoch represented him in the comics, so an appearance in the upcoming Spider-Man: No way home just makes sense.

The reappearance of Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin was also hinted at in a recent episode of Hawkeye.
In the same episode, Maya Lopez, AKA Echo, was introduced, a figure is known for her connections to Matt Murdock in Marvel Comics, and it’s been announced that Alaqua Cox will play Lopez in an Echo spin-off series that could easily include Daredevil and Kingpin.

Spider-Man: No way home is due for release in the UK, on the 15th of December.

Cobie Smulders to play Maria Hill in Secret Invasion

In Marvel’s Secret Invasion series, Cobie Smulders will reprise her role as Maria Hill in the MCU, and she will once again star opposite Samuel L. Jackson, who will be reprising his role as Nick Fury.

Smulders joins Ben Mendelsohn, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Christopher McDonald, and Killian Scott.

The Disney+ series “centres around Fury and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) — who first met during the events of Captain Marvel — and a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.”

Smulders has appeared in a number of Marvel films, including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Captain America: Civil War, and the Avengers films.

New Spider-Man trilogy in development

There has been a lot of speculation recently, including from Tom Holland himself – that Spider-Man: No Way Home, would be the end of his career as everyone’s favourite wall-crawler. The upcoming film does indeed mark the end of his current contract. However, according to producer Amy Pascal, this won’t be his last time suiting up, as there are already ideas in the works for a new trilogy.

Whilst talking to Fandango she said:

“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel or the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go on to the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”

This is wonderful news for fans who were worried about the companies splitting up, we came very close to seeing Tom Holland exit the MCU when the previous deal ended in 2019. However, both companies were soon able to reach an understanding of the continued use of the character.

Whilst it hasn’t been stated officially, I personally believe it was Sony that pushed Disney to open up the Marvel multiverse, so they could bring in characters from the Venomverse. It will be interesting to see how both companies utilise Peter Parker going forward. But one thing is for sure, Miles Morales will be the future for the franchise.

More from Pascal can be found here.

Spider-Man: No way home is out in the UK on the 15th of December.

Galaxy Quest TV series in development

Actor Justin Long has revealed that Simon Pegg is writing a Galaxy Quest TV series.


On the latest episode of his podcast ‘Life is short with Justin Long‘. He told his guest, Impractical Joker, Joe Gatto. “I don’t know if I should say this. But they’re doing a series, a Galaxy Quest limited series. Simon Pegg is writing it. He text me asking what my character’s last name is, so I hope I’m in it. I’m excited”.

Galaxy Quest was a 1999 sci-fi/comedy, starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub and, Sam Rockwell. In which, the alumni cast of a space opera television series has to play their roles as the real thing when an alien race needs their help. However, they also have to defend both Earth and the alien race from a reptilian warlord.

The film is a cult classic and is often regarded amongst fans, as the best Star Trek movie of all time. The franchise has continued over the years in the form of comic books by IDW publishing. In 2019 there was a documentary made about the film called ‘Never surrender: A galaxy Quest documentary.’

There were talks of a TV series around 2015, but production stalled after the sad passing of Alan Rickman in 2016. Rickman played Alexander Dane, an old-school British thespian, bitter that his best-known role is on a low-budget sci-fi series.

The film went on to spawn the careers of actors who are now household names, including Justin Long, Rainn Wilson and, Sam Rockwell.

It’s currently unknown which of the original cast members will return, although they’ve all been open over the years about their desires to do a sequel.

Alan Rickman isn’t the only cast member to have since passed away, Sam Lloyd and Robin Sachs are sadly no longer with us. It will be interesting to see if they retire or re-cast those characters.
