An MCU debut for Ben Affleck as Daredevil in Deadpool 3 has become more likely, thanks to recent casting news, igniting excitement among fans. After portraying Batman in the DCEU for nearly a decade, Affleck’s potential return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe has sparked speculation and anticipation.

With his previous experience playing Daredevil in Marvel’s 2003 film adaptation, the possibility of Affleck reprising the role in the upcoming Deadpool 3 film has gained traction. As the film is set to explore the Daredevil world, fans are eagerly awaiting confirmation of Affleck’s involvement, which would mark his exciting entry into the MCU.

Garner’s Involvement Raises Hope

The official announcement of Jennifer Garner, who portrayed Elektra in the 2003 ‘Daredevil’ film, joining the cast of ‘Deadpool 3’ has given fans hope for Affleck’s MCU debut. Garner’s reprisal of her role in the MCU threequel opens the door for other characters from the Daredevil world to make appearances. Given this connection, it would make sense for Affleck’s Devil of Hell’s Kitchen to have a cameo in the film.

The Multiversal Expansion

‘Deadpool 3’ is shaping up to be a wild ride across the Marvel Multiverse, incorporating characters from the MCU, the Fox X-Men universe, and potentially beyond. The movie’s Multiversal ties and the introduction of characters from different universes suggest a playful and comedic approach. This opens up the possibility for Affleck’s Daredevil, along with other characters like those from the Fantastic Four films, to be part of the Multiversal fun.

The film’s comedic nature aligns with Affleck’s talent for delivering humor, giving a chance to rejuvenate the character and showcase a different side of his superhero journey.

An Anticipated Release

‘Deadpool 3’ is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2024, adding to the excitement surrounding its Multiversal storyline and potential cameo appearances. While there has been no official confirmation of Affleck’s involvement, the combination of Garner’s return and the film’s exploration of different universes makes his MCU debut a tantalizing possibility.

A New Chapter for Ben Affleck?

As fans eagerly anticipate ‘Deadpool 3‘ and its Multiversal shenanigans, the question of Ben Affleck’s return as Daredevil remains unanswered. While his involvement is uncertain, the prospect of his cameo appearance brings a mix of excitement and curiosity. Regardless of the outcome, Affleck’s potential MCU debut would be an opportunity to embrace the character once again and celebrate the lighter side of his superhero journey.
