Here’s what Charlie Cox had to say on Jon Bernthal’s take on The Punisher and him coming back to the MCU as the character:

Yeah, I mean… again, I don’t know what the politics are, I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes. 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. But, the only thing I’ll say is I don’t know who could do a better version of The Punisher than Jon Bernthal. 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.

Charlie Cox also thinks Krysten Ritter should join the MCU

Charlie also revealed that he would love to see Krysten Ritter get to return as Jessica Jones in the MCU:

I feel the same way about Krysten Ritter. 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.
