This is it, folks; Daredevil is coming back and officially joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is the first confirmation from Marvel Studios concerning Charlie Cox’s Marvel character joining the MCU, given other rumors suggest he’s making an appearance in She-Hulk and Echo with Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio).
In a turn of events, Spider-Man: Freshman Year is set to show Harry Osborn, Norman Osborn, Doctor Octopus, and now Matt Murdock/Daredevil.
While it’s not been officially stated how many episodes Freshman Year will feature Daredevil, Marvel did announce that Spider-Man: Sophomore Year is coming.
On top of that, Marvel has yet to explain how Freshman Year is canon, considering that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man has never made mention of Daredevil the various villains announced for this series:

Marvel Studios has released the following statement confirming that Freshman Year is officially canon:
Jeff Trammell teased the show with the cast of characters, and Ryan Meinerding showed off the new Spider-Man suit designed for the series. A fun reveal was that moderator Paul F.

Tom Holland’s Avenger is leading the way for Marvel Cinematic Universe newcomers Kate Bishop, Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac), Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany), Eternals’ Thena (Angelina Jolie), and more — especially with his next Spider-Man trilogy that’s currently in the works.
