Marvel officially confirms Daredevil is canon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There was a lot of confusion and questions among fans when actor Charlie Cox reprised his role as Matthew Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, whether the same version of the character seen across all three seasons of the former Netflix series or another variant for the MCU. Putting a full stop to all the confusion, Marvel’s website updated the biography of No Way Home which connects the dots between Daredevil season three and No Way Home.
According to CBR reports, the final paragraph clears that the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home happen just after season three of the Charlie Cox drama series.
The official paragraph reads, “Sometime later, Matt was hired as an attorney to defend Peter Parker, as Peter had been publicly outed as Spider-Man and accused of Mysterio’s murder. Though Peter was legally cleared of any wrongdoing, Matt warned him he’d still have to face the court of public opinion and advised Harold “Happy” Hogan to hire a good lawyer. As if on cue, a protestor threw a brick through the window of the Parkers’ apartment in support of Mysterio. Fortunately, due to his heightened senses, Matt was able to catch the brick before it hurt anyone inside. When Peter asked him how he was able to do that, Matt claimed it was because he was a really good lawyer and left it at that.”
So, it’s official that Cox’s Daredevil is Marvel Cinematic Universe Canon. Daredevil along with all the other defender series is streaming now on Disney+.
