What Daredevil Fans Missed: Deleted No Way Home Scene We All Wish Was Included
Fans loved the deleted Matt Murdock scene even more when they found out it was actually a nod to Ben Affleck's Daredevil.
Spider-Man: No Way Home has become an MCU sensation thanks to multiple heartwarming cameos. And one of those guest star appearances has become special to a large part of the MCU fandom. Those who missed Charlie Cox 's Daredevil were happy to see Matt Murdock return as Peter Parker's brilliant lawyer who can catch a flying rock with a single swift motion.
Peter: How did u do that!?
Matt: I'm a really good lawyer.
During premiere screenings, this cameo elicited a massive vocal reaction from audiences happy to see the beloved character again. But as it turns out, that hilarious scene was not the only Daredevil cameo in the film. When the extended cut of No Way Home was released, featuring eleven minutes of new footage not shown in the original cut, fans were overjoyed to find another hilarious Murdock scene that initially ended up on the cutting room floor
In his first scene, Murdock announces that he was able to legally exonerate Peter, who was accused of Mysterio's murder. He also advises Jon Favreau's Happy Hogan to seek legal protection due to a federal investigation into the disappearance of Stark Industries' technology. The deleted scene shows that Hogan ended up hiring Murdock.
Murdock and Hogan are shown in a meeting with the Department of Damage Control. And while the beginning sounds promising, with Murdock confidently proclaiming his client's innocence, Hogan's phone notification ruins it all. Through a surveillance app, Happy sees Peter bringing multiverse villains into his apartment and just can't stay calm and look innocent like he's supposed to.
"Happy. Stop. Sweating," Murdock whispers.
That's when Hogan asks the question that has the fans in stitches.
"How do you do that?" he asks, leaning over to Matt.
Although short, this scene is absolutely hilarious and amazing. Charlie Cox, as always, kills it. And fans would definitely want it to be included in the final cut of the movie. Especially after finding out that the deleted scene was actually a reference to 2003's Daredevil with Ben Affleck in the lead role and Jon Favreau portraying Foggy Nelson, Daredevil's law partner.
While fans have gotten more of Daredevil in She-Hulk, many love his dynamic with Spider-Man and wish they could team up and fight crime together in future movies.
