In another recent interview, Cox noted that he hopes his time in the MCU “never ends” due to the amount of fun he has portraying the blind lawyer by day and righteous vigilante at night. While talking to Supernova about his latest series, Kin, the fan-favorite actor shared his thoughts about fans’ rampant speculation ahead of his cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021):

“I still don’t know what the rules are. Obviously, it’s now known that I’m in Spider-Man. So, yeah. But more than that, I don’t know, and the little I do know, I’m obviously not going to say. But the only thing I would say is that for a long time I was asked these questions and I genuinely had not heard anything.”

The secrecy from Marvel is very common, as some actors like Sebastian Stan already know. Due to how interconnected every movie in the MCU is, it makes sense to have such secrecy to avoid spoilers far in advance. Despite not knowing for some time whether or not he would return as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, Cox is grateful for being able to return to the role:

“I mean look, I feel so lucky to have been cast in that role and it is the gift that keeps on giving. I loved every single minute of making the show. And so, to be asked to come back and to be involved in any capacity is absolutely thrilling to me.”

Cox went on to reassert that he wants a long career with Marvel Studios:

“I hope it gets to the point where people are like, ‘You are too old to be playing this part.'”

He also noted that he loves the idea of crossovers, perhaps in lieu of another solo series:

“Crossovers is the thing I would like to do next. I don’t know what that looks like, and I don’t know what they’re planning and all that kind of stuff. But there are some really interesting stories there that I’d love for the character to explore.”
