Things We Saw Today: Charlie Cox Says That Isn’t His Arm in the Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer
Charlie Cox has broken his silence on Spider-Man: No Way Home—well, sort of. According to ComicBook.com, Cox has confirmed that those are not his forearms in the trailer—not that he isn’t in the movie, notably, just that his forearms aren’t in the trailer like we all jumped to try to figure out.
“I can assure you, those are not my forearms.”

So what does that mean for our hopes and dreams of seeing Matt Murdock in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Nothing, they’re still there. There is nothing telling us that a) that isn’t Matt Murdock just with edited footage for the trailer and b) Charlie Cox didn’t say he wasn’t in the movie, just that that particular man with impressive arm hair isn’t him.
Before I sound too much like a conspiracy theorist, let me explain: Marvel has a history of changing footage in their trailers or using things not in the movie to distract us from the story they’re actually telling. They did it with Infinity War and Endgame, and it is still a thing with shows like Loki, where they edited Sylvie out of shots in the trailer.
Marvel wants to keep the secrets while also giving us content, and so that means tricking us sometimes. Like maybe having Charlie Cox tell the world we don’t know those arms. (It could very much not be him but I will BELIEVE IT when I see it.)
This doesn’t confirm nor deny Cox’s involvement, so we could still have our Matt Murdock back, but until we know anything for certain, I’m going to side-eye those arms every time I rewatch the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer.
