Get ready for the new daily show

Charlie Cox’s Daredevil now set for Spider-man 3 too?

December 9th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Holy crap! It sounds like Spider-man 3 is going to be a real rollercoaster for Marvel fans.

After the reveal last night that Alfred Molina is returning as Doctor Octopus in Spider-man 3 last night (here) and then the reports that Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire are to return as Spider-men (here) along with Kirsten Dunst as MJ and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy – yes, I’m praying for a Spider-Gwen spin-off movie with Stone, what of it!? – it seems that another major connection to the wider Marvel universe is set to be part of the movie too.

A new report has it that Charlie Cox is set to return as Daredevil/Matt Murdock in the third Spidey outing, returning to the role that he played so perfectly in the Netflix Marvel show.

There’s been a lot of fan rumblings and speculation – yes, we’re guilty too (here) – that Murdock could be Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) lawyer after his alter-ego was revealed at the end of Spider-man: Far From Home and it seems that this may indeed be what’s happening… presumably before the multiverse opens up and pours characters from the Spider-verse all over the screen.

If this all happens then I’d put money on it we’ll see Deadpool and Venom in there too (here)… but is too much fan service a thing? Let me know your thoughts, gang…

Spider-Man 3 was first pushed back to November 5 and will now bow on December 17, 2021.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
