RUMOR MILL: Marvel Studios Is Bringing Back Some Of The Netflix Stars... But There's A Catch

A new rumor is claiming that Marvel Studios may have closed deals with several of the Marvel/Netflix stars to return to the MCU in their respective roles, but there's a bit of a catch. Read on...

In "Rumor Mill," we share the hard-to-buy rumors that don't come from reliable sources like the trades, but are still more believable (just) than what you might find on Reddit.

With the rights to all of the Marvel/Netflix shows' characters having reverted back to Marvel Studios last year, it was only a matter of time before we got some sort of update regarding their futures (or lack thereof) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it sounds like there might be big plans in place... for some of them, at least.

According to That Hashtag Show, a relatively reliable source when it comes to TV casting scoops, Marvel Studios will be bringing back Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, and Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin. 

However, there is a major catch. While they'll have the same actors in their respective roles, the four won't be playing the versions of the characters from the Netflix shows, and will instead be portraying new MCU-versions. This means that all of those canceled shows will presumably be rendered non-canon like everything else from the now-defunct Marvel Television, which probably shouldn't come as a huge surprise since Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had no involvement with any of those short-lived projects. 

THS adds that their appearances will be spread across Phases 4 and 5, with Charlie Cox expected to be the first to return with a cameo appearance in Marvel/Sony's Spider-Man: No Way Home this Christmas. Jon Bernthal and Krysten Ritter are expected to appear in an upcoming Disney+ series, while Vincent D'Onofrio will play a pivotal role in the recently announced Echo show starring Alaqua Cox. He may also make a small appearance in Hawkeye, which wrapped earlier today. 

As for Luke Cage and Iron Fist, those roles are expected to be recast. - No word on Elektra, Misty Knight, and/or Colleen Wing.

We've had a few similar rumors relating to the Netflix/Marvel shows pop up over the past few months, and since this report doesn't really add anything new aside from the update that Cox and co. will be playing new takes on the characters, it's best not to put too much stock in this latest rumor until we hear something official.
