Will Charlie Cox play the lead as MCU's Daredevil?

Kevin Feige in an interview with Cinemablend confirmed the news and said, “If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil.” He added, “Where we see that, how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen.”  While fans have been coming up with their own theories ever since the ‘Daredevil’ series ended, this was the first time when Feige commented on the casting following a massive fan movement.

"Also if there was a chance of that happening in the future, I don't want to say something that could potentially jeopardize those chances because the people high up at Marvel, maybe they see this stuff or hear what I say and maybe that influences”, said Charlie. He added, “I don't know. I have no idea. I love how passionate the fans are and I feel very, very, very touched that so many of them have gone online and made their voices heard about the desire for me to come back”, as reported by ComicBook
