Fresh off the news that actor Alfred Molina will be reprising his role as Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man 3 comes another audacious, or should we say, daring bit of information which only further suggests that the upcoming Spider-Man 3 film will be one of the most intriguing and character-crammed solo Marvel Cinematic Universe offerings since Captain America: Civil War — Charlie Cox, best known for his impressive portrayal of Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the fan-favorite Netflix series will be appearing as The Man Without Fear in Spider-Man 3.
The scoop comes courtesy of Murphy’s Multiverse, who allege that the Charlie Cox as Daredevil in Spider-Man 3 deal has been “set in stone for several months now,” despite Cox denying the notion in a recent interview with Comicbook.com.
With Alfred Molina set to return as Doctor Octopus, Jamie Foxx renewing his role as Electro and rumors swirling that Spider-Man from movies past, such as Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire might somehow be involved in the upcoming Spider-Man 3, do all the applicable rumors suggest that the sequel to Far From Home may somehow involve alternate dimensions or multiversal elements as a result of (or should that be, to coincide with?) the critically and fan-acclaimed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse? Will Doctor Octopus and Electro form the Sinister Six, a group of six Spider-Man villains who join forces in the comic books to get rid of Spider-Man once and for all? Will Doc Ock and Electro (and possibly other villains, like Michael Keaton’s Vulture or Michael Mando’s Scorpion) joining forces be the catalyst in Spider-Man 3 for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man seeking help from Spider-Men from other dimensions and fellow New York-based superhero, Daredevil?
The 2-year-no-use clause on the Daredevil character instituted by Netflix recently ended, which means the Daredevil character is technically in fair use for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if MCU overseer Kevin Feige and Spider-Man 3 director Jon Watts are keen on making it a reality.
Do you want to see Charlie Cox as Daredevil in Spider-Man 3? Do you think Spider-Man 3, with its most star-studded, character-packed film yet will be one of the craziest Spider-Man and Marvel Cinematic Universe films yet? Will we get to see Daredevil and Spidey team-up to take on Doc Ock and Electro at the very least? Or will cramming this many characters in Spider-Man 3 prove to be detrimental in the same way that the “too many villains” guideline plagued movies that mandated multiple bad guys, like Batman and Robin or even Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3?
