In a recent interview for The Direct, the actor commented on how refreshing it is to be able to talk about his return in Spider-Man: No Way Home and not have to constantly lie to avoid spoiling the surprise.

“It’s a relief to be able to talk about it,” he said. “You know, getting that phone call was a life-changing moment for me, really… My relationship with that character and the MCU was dead and buried, I hadn’t heard anything for a couple of years, so I moved on. It was incredibly unexpected and out of the blue.”

“I got the call in the middle of the lockdown, summer 2020… And we shot Spider-Man in March 2021, so I had to keep it a secret for almost a year… So yeah, it’s been intense,” added the actor.

At the moment there are no known plans for the future of Daredevil in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hoping to see more interactions between Charlie Cox and Tom Holland in the future Spider-Man 4.
