Daredevil won't show up in a Marvel movie, says actor Charlie Cox

The British actor says there has been "no conversation" about making the leap from Netflix to movies such as the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War".

It doesn't look as though Daredevil or any of Marvel's TV heroes will show up in the comic book giant's movies anytime soon. With "Captain America: Civil War" uniting a vast cast of big-screen heroes in just a matter of weeks, "Daredevil" star Charlie Cox has ruled out an appearance.

"There was no conversation about joining any of the movies," the British star said, adding that he would jump at the chance to appear in a Marvel movie. "Who wouldn't want to be in the highest-grossing film of all time?"

"Civil War" is already stuffed to bursting with Marvel heroes, as Captain America and Iron Man lead opposing factions into a superpowered dust-up. New faces include Black Panther and a new version of Spider-Man, so adding Daredevil into the mix might be a bit much. Still, we've got a lot of love for Daredevil and his pals on Netflix, and it would be fun to have the small-screen superheroes stretch their superpowers on the big screen at some point.

Cox was speaking on stage at a showcase event here in Paris held by Netflix, the streaming service that produces "Daredevil". Netflix executives and actors from its shows are in France to spotlight new productions, including the company's first French and British shows.

"Daredevil" was the first of four Netflix shows to feature a Marvel hero, followed by "Jessica Jones" which debuted last year, "Luke Cage", which is due in September, and "Iron Fist", which is currently in production. Once all four have aired, the heroes will unite as super-team The Defenders in an eponymous mini-series, also on Netflix.

Unless he shows up in "Luke Cage" or "Iron Fist" -- and with an appearance in "Civil War" apparently ruled out -- "The Defenders" will be the next time we'll see Cox in costume, as the miniseries will arrive before series three of "Daredevil".

Cox describes the various Marvel-Netflix series as "very different shows...I'm interested to know how tonally they will become one."
