Daredevil Actor Has Hilarious Loki Cameo Idea For MCU Show


Charlie Cox wants Tom Hiddleston’s Loki to make a cameo in the MCU’s forthcoming Daredevil: Born Again series. Cox first came to play Marvel’s blind-lawyer-turned vigilante Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil, in the critically acclaimed Netflix series which first aired in 2015. Cox would go on to appear in two more seasons, and the crossover event series The Defenders, before Netflix ultimately canceled the series in 2018. Rights issues would then prevent Marvel from doing anything further with the character for an additional two years.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

While fans initially mourned the loss of the original Netflix Daredevil series, they would later come celebrate Cox’s return as Matt Murdock in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. At the same time, Vincent D’Onofrio’s villainous Wilson Fisk also made his own triumphant return in the Hawkeye series, which aired on Disney+. Following his initial cameo, Cox is also expected to appear in both the She-Hulk and Echo series, before moving on to headline his own 18-episode series revival dubbed Daredevil: Born Again. The new series is currently slated for an early 2024 release.

At Disney’s recent D23 Expo, Cox spoke with THR about bringing his Marvel character back to life. When asked about what potential cameos he would like to see in his new series, Cox suggests that it “would be so cool if [Tatiana Maslany] could return the favor” after his own appearance in She-Hulk. He also says he would like to see Tom Hiddleston, “even if he just showed up with the Tesseract and went off again.” Check out his full comments below:

There’s so many people. I’ve worked with Tatiana in She-Hulk, she’s unbelievable and we had so much fun together, I loved working with her. It would be so cool if she could return the favor. [Laughs] Tom Hiddleston’s one of my best friends, I don’t know how our worlds would ever combine, but it’d be cool if he made a little cameo somehow, even if he just showed up with the Tesseract and went off again.

With Hiddleston currently filming Loki season 2, it is not yet clear what role his character will play in the MCU’s next phase. Given the events of the Loki season 1 finale, it might even be possible that Daredevil’s sudden inclusion in the MCU could be explained by way of changes that were made to timeline. If so, Cox may very well get his wish by having Loki appear on behalf of the TVA to investigate the implications of his presence on Earth 616.

Whether such a cameo happens or not, the very possibility of it marks a significant change from the original Netflix incarnation of Daredevil. While the series indirectly referenced certain events in the MCU, it was never made explicitly clear whether the Netflix Marvel shows took place within the same continuity. Moreover, whatever connections did exist between the series and the MCU proper were also decidedly one-sided. During his original Netflix days, Cox would not have been able to even imagine the possibility of having a Loki cameo, but with Daredevil: Born Again officially becoming MCU canon, anything is possible.
