The actor portrays attorney Matt Murdock and his vigilante alter ego in the popular Netflix series, which is currently in its second season, and the character is rumoured to be involved in the forthcoming two-part blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War.

Cox admits he would love the chance to star alongside the likes of Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Evans as Captain America, especially as his Marvel contract includes the possibility of inclusion in future movie projects.

"When I signed the contract for the show, I signed multiple years for Daredevil and, of course, (team-up series) The Defenders - and in that package there was the opportunity to be involved in the movies," he confirmed at a Netflix event in Paris on Monday (11Apr16), according to DigitalSpy.com.

However, Cox reveals he has yet to hear from Marvel movie executives: "It would be great if that was to happen - it'd be wonderful - who wouldn't want to be in the biggest grossing movie of all time?" he smiled. "But none of those discussions have happened - certainly not with me."

Ben Affleck previously brought Daredevil to life on the big screen in a critically-panned standalone movie in 2003. Ironically, Affleck has since been cast as rival comic book character Batman, making his debut as the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
