UPDATE: Marvel has let go of head writers and directors of Daredevil: Born Again for the remainder of the season as part of a significant creative reboot of the series. Only less than half of the 18 episodes series has been shot before the strike. According to reports, Charlie Cox apparently do not even don the Daredevil costume until episode 4!
A search for new writers and directors are underway.
UPDATE: It is officially confirmed that Jon Bernthal (We Own This City) is returning as Frank Castle aka The Punisher for Daredevil: Born Again! However, other original cast members from the Netflix Daredevil series including Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson, who played Karen Page and Foggy Nelson, are not expected to return.
The series begins production in New York this month with a release date targeted for spring 2024.
UPDATE: Production on Daredevil: Born Again series is set to shoot for 11 months in 2023.
“They said to me, ‘We’re going to be shooting in 2023’,” Cox said. “I said, ‘Great, when?’ They said, ‘All 2023’. I start shooting in February and finish in December,” Charlie Cox told NME.
Cox also confirmed that the series will keep the dark tone of the original Netflix series but perhaps with less gore.
“My opinion is this character works best when he’s geared towards a slightly more mature audience. My instinct is that on Disney+ it will be dark but it probably won’t be as gory. I would say to [people hoping the Disney+ show copies the Netflix show], we’ve done that. Let’s take the things that really worked, but can we broaden? Can we appeal to a slightly younger audience without losing what we’ve learned about what works?” said Cox.
Daredevil: Born Again won’t hit Disney+ until 2024.
UPDATE: The new logo for Daredevil: Born Again series was revealed at D23 Expo!
Star Charlie Cox confirmed that Born Again will indeed be a full reboot of the series.
“It is a Season 1, it is not Season 4, so it is a whole new thing. Which I think is the way to go. If you are going to do it again, do it differently,” Cox told extraTV at D23 Expo.
UPDATE: Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige just announced at Hall H San Diego Comic Con that both Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio will return in the new Daredevil series titled Daredevil: Born Again. The series will span 18 episodes and is set to premiere on Disney+ in Spring 2024.
UPDATE: Matt Corman and Chris Ord (Covert Affairs) are set to write and executive produce the new Daredevil series on Disney+.
Charlie Cox will officially return as Matt Murdock in the MCU reboot of Daredevil. According to Production Weekly the reboot series will be produced by Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige and Chris Gray for a release on Disney+.
Cox’s cameo appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home is merely the beginning of a new chapter of Daredevil’s live-action stories, which is rumored to continue in the upcoming She-Hulk and Echo series.
As for the planned Daredevil MCU “reboot”, there is still no confirmation if this will be a Season 4 continuation of the original series or a full on reboot with the original cast.
Stay tuned as we learn more.
