DAREDEVIL: Charlie Cox On Why He Wants Jon Bernthal And Krysten Ritter Back As The Punisher And Jessica Jones

Daredevil star Charlie Cox has shared his thoughts on why he feels Jon Bernthal and Krysten Ritter should be given the chance to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as The Punisher and Jessica Jones.

The world remains desperate to know whether Charlie Cox will reprise the role of Daredevil in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the actor has now admitted that there are two of his old colleagues he'd be keen to see brought back to the small (or big) screen. 

Before we get to that, Cox once again commented on rumours surrounding his future as the Man Without Fear during a recent interview with Forbes

"I don't know what the politics are, I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes," Cox explained. "I don't know any of that stuff...I don't know what the rules are, the deal that Netflix made. Whatever I say it can be taken out of context and it could be a headline that could mean something, so I'm just a little careful with what I say now."

Given how much Cox has been asked about Daredevil in recent weeks while doing the rounds to promote Kin, his attitude is understandable. Despite that, he was quick to give the thumbs up to recent rumblings that Jon Bernthal is also being eyed for an MCU return as The Punisher. 

"The only thing I'll say is I don't know who could do a better version of The Punisher than Jon Bernthal," he exclaimed. "And that character is beloved, people are crazy for Frank Castle. So if they're going to do it again, I hope they do it with him because I don't think it gets better than that."

"I feel the same way about Krysten Ritter," Cox added. "I know that Jessica Jones, the character isn't quite as well known as Frank Castle is, but what a performance. What a great show that was."

We have heard that Ritter could also return in She-Hulk, but none of the trades have weighed in with their own reports (meaning we only have so-called "scoopers" to rely on). It would be amazing to see this trio in the MCU, and these three - along with Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk - remain high atop the wishlists of many fans for Marvel Television characters who deserve another chance.

With any luck, Marvel Studios' plans (or lack thereof) will become clearer towards the end of the year! Check out what Jon Bernthal recently told us about returning as The Punisher in the player below:
