New report states that a new Daredevil series is currently in the works for Disney+, with writers and producers attached to the project. Variety reports that Matt Corman and Chris Ord are currently developing the new Daredevil series for Disney+, which comes after persistent rumors that Disney has been planning on getting Charlie Cox back in costume as the defender of Hell’s Kitchen.
Netflix’s Daredevil, along with the other Marvel content on the streaming platform, recently moved to Disney+. Fans of the show have also gotten to see Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio pop up in recent MCU projects such as the Hawkeye series and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Vincent D’Onofrio first made his appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he reprised his role as Kingpin/Wilson Fisk in the final episodes of the Hawkeye series. Next, Charlie Cox played Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home when he represented Peter Parker after his secret identity was revealed to the whole world.
During the press tour for the Spider-Man: No Way Home film in December, the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, confirmed that when Daredevil enter the MCU, it would be Charlie Cox portraying him.
"If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil," Feige said to CinemaBlend during the press tour. Where we see that, how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen." The reason why Feige felt comfortable revealing important details is that fans were about to see Cox in No Way Home.
After his appearance in the latter episode of Hawkeye, Vincent D’Onofrio commented that the Kingpin seen in Hawkeye is the same one from the Netflix Daredevil series. "They don't exist [separately]. They're the same person," D’Onofrio revealed to ScreenRant when he was asked if Daredevil and Hawkeye exist in two separate worlds. "I think from my point of view, like a lot of the Avengers stuff, a lot of the MCU stuff, they tried to connect as many dots to the original canon as they can, and some dots are just not possible to connect. And that's what we've done with connecting to Daredevil and vice versa."
Spider-Man: No Way Home is available to buy digitally since April 14. All episodes of Hawkeye series are available to stream on Disney+.
