So, what happened and why do we now think that Marvel considers the Daredevil and all other Marvel Netflix shows as canon?
Marvel posted on its official website a full on-screen history report on Matt Murdock.
The history acknowledges the events of both his standalone show and the Defenders miniseries on Netflix.
Netflix’s Daredevil series is officially part of the MCU
Interestingly enough, this history of Marvel’s official website also includes the following excerpt, which explains what Matt Murdock has been up to since we last saw him in Daredevil Season 3:
Sometime later, Matt was hired as an attorney to defend Peter Parker, as Peter had been publicly outed as Spider-Man and accused of Mysterio’s murder. Though Peter was legally cleared of any wrongdoing, Matt warned him he’d still have to face the court of public opinion and advised Harold “Happy” Hogan to hire a good lawyer. As if on cue, a protestor threw a brick through the window of the Parkers’ apartment in support of Mysterio. Fortunately, due to his heightened senses, Matt was able to catch the brick before it hurt anyone inside. When Peter asked him how he was able to do that, Matt claimed it was because he was a really good lawyer and left it at that.
A new MCU Daredevil series on its way?
This had got Marvel and Daredevil fans very excited because it really seems as though Marvel Studios is looking to bring in all of the Marvel Netflix characters into the MCU.
This all comes after we saw Charlie Cox return as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The fact that Marvel basically confirmed that the Daredevil series happens in the MCU means that the Matt we saw in that scene was the same one from the show – thus not a variant.
