Marvel confirms the new Daredevil series for Disney Plus

A new live-action Daredevil series is arriving at Disney Plus…. now it’s official. The news was first reported before this year, but at Comic-Con this evening, Marvel established the series’ existence.

It will be named Daredevil: Born Again and will once also star Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio as Daredevil and the Kingpin. The show is envisioned to hit Disney Plus in Spring 2024.

Cox and D’Onofrio will be reproducing their roles from the original series, which debuted as part of a partnership with Netflix; before this year, however, all of Netflix’s Marvel series — including Jessica Jones and Luke Cage — exited the streamer to move to Disney Plus. D’Onofrio’s Kingpin has already occurred on Disney’s streaming platform via a role on last year’s Hawkeye.

Meanwhile, the next significant MCU series coming to Disney Plus will be She-Hulk — and Marvel just unleashed a new trailer for it at SDCC.

Marvel’s Daredevil is an American television series designed by Drew Goddard for the streaming service Netflix, based on the Marvel Comics character Daredevil.

It is put in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), acknowledging the continuity of the franchise’s films, and was the first Marvel Netflix series guiding to the crossover miniseries The Defenders.

Marvel Television produced Daredevil in association with ABC Studios. Steven S. DeKnight worked as showrunner for the first season, with Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez carrying over as co-showrunners for the second and Erik Oleson joining the sequel as showrunner for the third; Goddard acted as a counselor for the series.

Charlie Cox stars as Daredevil / Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer-by-day who fights crime as a masked vigilante by night. Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Rosario Dawson, and Vincent D’Onofrio also star, with Bob Gunton, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis-Hall, and Ayelet Zurer bonding with them for season one, Élodie Yung, Jon Bernthal, and Stephen Rider joining the cast for season two.

In addition, Jay Ali, Joanne Whalley, and Wilson Bethel are joining in season three. Daredevil joined the action in late 2013, a year after the film rights to the character regressed to Marvel, with Goddard hired initially in December 2013.

Cox was cast in May 2014, and Ryan Meinerding conceived the Daredevil costume for Marvel Studios’ design team. The series was planned to be darker than other Marvel projects, intentionally evading crossovers with the broader MCU and focusing on a crime fiction style inspired by 1970s films.

In addition, design inspiration was taken from the Hell’s Kitchen environs of the comics, with filming in New York City in spots that still looked like that.

The first season was entirely released on Netflix on April 10, 2015, heeded by second on March 18, 2016, and third on October 19, 2018. They were fulfilled with positive reviews and acquired numerous accolades, including several Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards nominations.

A spin-off series centered on Bernthal’s character Punisher / Frank Castle, titled The Punisher, was ordered by Netflix in April 2016. However, Netflix canceled Daredevil on November 29, 2018.

All of the Marvel Netflix series was withdrawn from Netflix on March 1, 2022, after Disney regained the license for them. They began streaming on Disney+ on March 16. D’Onofrio and Cox later reprised their roles as Kingpin / Wilson Fisk and Murdock in MCU projects created by Marvel Studios, starting in 2021 with Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home, respectively.

Cox will reproduce his role in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (2022) and express the character in the animated series Spider-Man: Freshman Year (2024). Both Cox and D’Onofrio will reprise their roles in Echo (2023). In addition, an 18-episode revival titled Daredevil: Born Again is in development for Disney+.
