Earlier this year, we learned that Marvel Studios is developing a Daredevil reboot series with Charlie Cox expected to reprise the role of Matt Murdock after making his official MCU debut in Spider-Man: No Way Home last year. However, since then, we haven't heard any updates on the development of the project until now.
During Marvel Studios' recent San Diego Comic-Con Hall H presentation, Kevin Feige revealed that the Daredevil reboot series is officially titled Daredevil: Born Again which will be consists of 18 episodes and is slated for release on Disney+ in spring 2024. He also confirmed that Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio will star in the series reprising their respective MCU roles.
The confirmation comes after they confirmed earlier that Daredevil will show up in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (as hinted by the end of the new trailer) and Cox will also voice the character in Spider-Man: Freshman Year animated series. Several weeks ago, it was also confirmed through reports that both Cox and D'Onofrio will also show up in Echo.
The series joins the slate of Marvel Studios' projects under Phase Five where it will be in the same company as Secret Invasion, Echo, Ironheart, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Marvels, Blade, Captain America: New World Order, and Thunderbolts.
It is exciting to hear the new updates on the Daredevil reboot from Feige himself as it confirms that the series is officially happening and we can expect a production start for it by next year. It's also interesting that they will do 18 episodes which will be way more than any of the other MCU shows.
It would be curious to see if the series will also bring back the other cast members from the past series to join Cox and D'Onofrio as well as whether they will retain the tone and violence or do some sort of follow-up to the storyline. Either way, fans are definitely delighted to hear this much-awaited news.
All three seasons of the original Daredevil series are available to stream on Disney+.
