Marvel has finally confirmed Matt Murdock’s return to an entire series with ‘Daredevil: Born Again’. A program scheduled for 2024 on Disney + and which could prove to be particularly dark.
Daredevilfrom Netflix to Disney+
In 2015, netflix launched the first season of his series Daredevil, from the Marvel Comics. Quickly, the show conquered the fans. Many felt at the time not to have been spoiled enough in terms of superheroes on the small screen. Whether it’s for certain memorable scenes (the sequence shot in the hallway) or the performance of Charlie Cox in the role of the blind lawyer, Daredevil has found its audience.
The program then allowed the streaming platform to develop a whole universe with Jessica Jones (2015-2019), iron fist (2017-2018), Punisher (2017-2019), Luke Cage (2016-2018), before bringing together all these beautiful people in The Defenders (2017).
Only, Disney has in turn launched into streaming with Disney+. With the arrival of the platform, there was no longer any question of seeing Marvel characters being used elsewhere. And even less with the main competitor. All series have been canceled by Netflix. They stayed on the platform for a while, before recently joining Disney+.
It was from there that fans began to hope that the studio would reintroduce some of these characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). First satisfaction for them with the appearance of Charlie Cox in Spider-Man: No Way Homebut also the villainous Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) in Hawkeye. It was only a matter of time before a bigger project was announced. It has now been done since San Diego Comic-Con: a new series Daredevil will soon be broadcast on Disney+.
born again : release date, plot, casting…
For the moment, Marvel has given very few elements that this titled series Daredevil: Born Again. It must be said that the program is not not expected before spring 2024. We will therefore have to be patient before having elements on the plot. However, there are a few guesses to be made based on the title. Besides the possibility that born again reference only to the revival of the show, it is above all about the title of a 1986 comic book series.
A book written by Frank Miller which presents a very dark Daredevil, on the verge of madness. The story sees the villain Kingpin learn the identity of Daredevil. He then does everything to destroy Matt Murdock’s life, starting with creating false elements against him to make him lose his job. Murdock will find himself at his worst, without a job, dumped by his girlfriend, and quickly homeless. A veritable descent into hell that had already partly inspired by season 3 of the Netflix series. The Disney + program could therefore go in this direction by using more elements.
It is obviously abouta mere hypothesis. From the side official elementswe do know that the series will be longer than the current Disney+ programs since it will contain eighteen episodes. Finally, it will not be necessary to wait until 2024 to see Daredevil again. Charlie Cox is announced to first appear in the series she hulk. Then, we will see him alongside Vincent D’Onofrio in the series Echo.
