The potential for cross-overs in the MCU is one of the most exciting aspects of the multi-faceted franchise. The sprawling world and continuity of every story means that every appearance by a character counts and has some impact on their story that could show up in their next solo outing. Although it does not happen very often, the appearance of one of the MCU character’s on an MCU television show (usually on ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,’ where Nick Fury, Maria Hill, Sif and Agent Sitwell have all made appearances before returning to the big screen) can be very exciting. As an avid fan of both the films and the TV shows, I’m always intrigued at the notion of one of the characters from television making the jump and having an appearance in one of the movies.
The most likely candidate for that these days would be Charlie Cox’s incarnation of ‘Daredevil,’ as the Netflix hit is the only television show (so far) based on a super-hero straight out of the comics, whose presence is often found in the company of the Avengers, Spider-Man, or any gathering of the mainstay Marvel heroes. Cox has high hopes of showing up on the big-screen, even if he’s just in the crowd of heroes standing there trying to look cool, and I think it’s a fantastic idea for him to be included in any gathering of heroes. Of course, according to the video below, Cox is also hoping for some shared screen-time with Spider-Man, claiming that he loves the cross-over stories between Daredevil and Spidey, especially one he mentions where Matt Murdock is forced to defend Daredevil in trial, and Spider-Man ends up having to wear the Daredevil costume as a stand in.
