Marvel loves their cameos and Easter eggs. They sometimes get the biggest reactions from the audience. Consider Doctor Strange 2. This film effectively stops dead in its tracks halfway through to show the alternate universe versions of characters like Reed Richards, Captain Marvel, and Captain America, while still giving moviegoers a round of applause. But this one had nothing on Spider-Man: No Coming Homewho brought back Spidey heroes and villains across three different iterations of the franchise. The Marvel honchos knew everyone would get a big reaction, so much so that they told at least one actor to hold on for a round of applause.
In a recent appearance at MEGACON Orlando, Charlie Cox – who has played Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, since 2015, and will once again be in the new series coming soon born again – recalled a strange direction he received while filming his No coming home cameo.
“The way they shot the scene, Jon Favreau said something, and then that’s my line,” Cox told the crowd, grabbed by a TikTok-er. “They wanted me to put the rod down and wait for the camera to pass before saying my line. And I said to the director: ‘This is weird, why are you doing this? I feel like I should just talk. And he said, ‘No, because people are going to be really excited.’ »
i hope you saw No coming home with a crowd screaming and screaming upon seeing Cox’s Daredevil for the first time since the show ended in 2019. Otherwise, it was probably an awkward experience. But hey, imagine what it would have been like if it had been Ben Affleck instead.
