fans of Marvel’s Daredevil and other Netflix Defender shows found their favorites weren’t added to the MCU Timeline on Disney+. It’s the big week for longtime viewers of the Marvel TV series as it was released on the streaming platform. However, this discovery might confuse more people. daredevils Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio have appeared in MCU properties before. Matt Murdock helped Peter Parker during Spider-Man: No Coming Home. Kingpin ended up being the big bad of Hawk Eye. So, clearly something strange is going on here. Maybe they are variations of their Netflix selves? It’s hard to say at the moment. (It could just be Marvel trying to navigate the content of the Defenders shows in contrast to the rest of the MCU.) But, for now, people are going to want those questions answered. It’s just a question of where the line is.
Previously, Cox talked about returning to the role of Murdock in another capacity. However, nothing is set in stone yet. The star is just happy to be back. He hopes he can continue some of the mature stories that everyone loved so much on Netflix.
“I wouldn’t dare the folks at Marvel to be able to accomplish this. I’m such a big fan of everything they’ve done so far, I wouldn’t underestimate them at all,” the star mused. from Daredevil. “So if they wanted to do a more PG version of Daredevil, I’m supporting them to find a way to do it where it totally matches everything we’ve done. And maybe there’s a little less blood , maybe there’s a little bit of anything, but I support them to do it.”
“My feeling is that the comics work better,” he continued. “The Daredevil comics, to me, are more exciting, readable, relatable when they live in a darker space. That said, and obviously, I think the Bendis/Maleev series is probably the best example of that.”
Last week, the Parents Television and Media Council lobbied Disney+ for its inclusion of the Defender Verse.
“For more than 98 years, The Walt Disney Company has been synonymous with the words Family Friendly, and I can think of no other company in American history that has been built more squarely on the backs – and the wallets – of parents and families,” wrote Parents Television and Media Council President Tim Winter. “The company’s namesake platform, Disney Plus, logically marketed itself as a family-friendly streaming service, and parents trusted Disney to deliver just that.”
“It seems extremely ‘off-brand’ for Disney Plus to add TV-MA and R-rated programming to this platform, ostensibly to increase subscription revenue,” he added. “So what comes next, adding live strip performances to Fantasyland at Disney World?”
