“I don’t think any of us were okay. I think that we were like, ‘Oh okay, we had a hit show and now it’s gone.’ But shortly after that, at same time the #SaveDaredevil groups started to rise, the cast, most of us I believe, but I know Charlie (Cox) and I for sure, and Deborah (Ann Woll), I think we started to learn the reasons why that happened. So we understood what Marvel was doing because Disney Plus coming out.

When you’re in this business a long time like we have all been, it kind of made sense business-wise. What didn’t make sense to us was why we wouldn’t continue that show or the idea of how that worked and how well it worked. Conceptually, I think we were disappointed but I think we all understood what was going on and it sort of was inevitable. In this business you learn to accept things because you know its a business in the end and there’s nothing you can really do about it.”

In October 2021, Knight Edge Media shared a rumor that Marvel Studios is interested in reviving the Netflix series with the same cast, but their returns would mean as a soft reboot. This could mean that they would portray new versions of their respective characters, but that they would already be well-established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so the events of Netflix's Daredevil show would take place in an alternate universe while the MCU versions would essentially be different variants.

Warning: Major spoilers from Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home ahead.

Rumors suggested that these characters would return via Disney+'s Hawkeye spin-off series Echo before getting their own movie or Disney+ TV series. According to rumors, Charlie Cox will reprise his Daredevil role in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Update: Those rumors finally proved to be true, with the Daredevil actors making their formal debuts in the MCU via two of the month's major releases.

D'Onofrio's return to the MCU was teased in Hawkeye Season 1's penultimate episode, with his character set to play a bigger role in the finale. Meanwhile, Cox made his highly-anticipated return with a brief appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

In December 2021, Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed the casting in an interview with Cinemablend : “If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil.” However, Feige told the outlet there are no specific Daredevil projects officially confirmed.

As noted above, the growing speculation is that both characters could play significant roles in Marvel’s Echo which is looking highly likely given the ways in which the characters have since popped up in the MCU. Bringing Daredevil back as a Disney Plus original would definitely bring a lot of hype.

Since Disney and Marvel Studios haven't officially confirmed as to whether the rumored Daredevil project is a film or TV series, it's hard to predict any kind of release date, so don't expect any Daredevil project until 2023.

Currently, it's impossible to tell what a potential Daredevil continuation story would be about. Rumors suggest that Marvel and Disney are interested in rebooting the characters' stories, meaning that they may not have had all of the same experiences as the Netflix characters even though their versions are similar.

If the characters make their debut in Echo, it's likely that their own film or TV project would be directly related to the events of the series.

However, no plot details have been officially confirmed, so we'll have to wait until Marvel Studios announce a specific project with Daredevil.
