Marvel fans holding out hope for Charlie Cox's Daredevil to appear in the proposed Black Widow solo film may have just had their hopes dashed.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has debunked rumors that Daredevil was expected to make an appearance in Black Widow's solo debut.
"There are a lot of potential characters that are among that list," observed Feige when asked if a Black Widow solo movie was in development post-Avengers 4. When asked if Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock would appear on screen with his longtime comic book love interest, Feige was quick to shoot the rumor down.
"That's one I haven't heard," admitted the Marvel Studios President.
The two Marvel superheroes struck up a longtime romance in the 70s and even shared an ongoing series with the duo relocating from New York City to San Francisco. After the couple broke up, Daredevil returned to Hell's Kitchen just in time for the seminal run by comic creator Frank Miller.
Cox's rumored appearance in a Black Widow film would've marked the first major crossover between Marvel's Netflix series and the theatrically released tentpole films of the MCU. Despite taking place in the same cinematic universe, there hasn't been an on screen crossover between Marvel Studios and Marvel Television since the appearance of Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury at the end of the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
In the meantime, fans have Scarlett Johansson's appearance in next year's Avengers sequel to look forward to as well as the upcoming third season of Daredevil on Netflix which recently wrapped principal photography.
