With the release of Marvel and Netflix's first collaboration, Daredevil, just over a week away, it's fair to say that blind superheroic lawyer-related excitement is as high as its ever been. After all, Daredevil isn't just a new Marvel TV series, it marks the arrival in the MCU of one of Marvel Comics' oldest and most beloved heroes - and if that isn't cause for major over-excitement, I honestly don't know what is.

It may also, though, be set to lead to something even more ludicrously exciting. Y'see, what with next year's Captain America: Civil War about to begin filming, there have been a whole lot of rumors floating around about whether or not Daredevil himself'll be making an appearance in the movie.

Even if he does have to sneak in...

Well, it now seems that if Charlie Cox - who plays the hero - has his way, he may well be set to turn up in some capacity or another. Speaking to IGN, Cox revealed:

"I've been reading Civil War - and Daredevil does appear in that...And look - again, just to clarify - I have not been called about that. I haven't been invited to that party! But it would be very very cool. Just to be in the background, saying cool stuff every now and then. It would be cool to be with all those guys."

Which, as he points out, is a long way from an actual confirmation. But, then again, Anthony Mackie spent most of the last six months saying the exact same thing about Falcon appearing in Age of Ultron, and look how that turned out...

"And it wasn't even April Fools..."
"And it wasn't even April Fools..."

It'd also make a whole lot of sense for the MCU as a whole - giving the Netflix side of the Universe even more reason to focus in on the impact of Civil War on both regular folk, their local heroes, and the villains that prey on both. With Daredevil - and the rest of the Netflix shows - focusing on New York...

...they'd be the perfect vehicle to do so.

What's fantastic to hear, though - whatever way it turns out in the end - is that Cox is reading up on his Daredevil lore - since if there's any Marvel hero who you really need to understand the background of in order to play him, it's most certainly the Man Without Fear...

Nicely played, Mr Cox. Nicely played...

What do you reckon, though?
