One of the many projects currently in development for Disney+ by Marvel Studios is “Daredevil: Born Again”, which will see Charlie Cox return to the role of Daredevil, and Vincent D’Onofrio is also returning as the Kingpin. Recently it was also revealed that the series will also star Michael Gandolfini, and Margarita Levieva will be starring in the show.
The show was officially announced earlier this year at the San Diego Comic-Con, and unlike other Disney+ series, this new show will have 18 episodes, which is double the length of “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law” and the same amount of episodes as “Moon Knight”, “Ms Marvel” and “Hawkeye” combined.
While speaking with NME about his new Netflix series, “Treason“, Charlie Cox was asked about filming the new Disney+ series, “Daredevil: Born Again”, and revealed that with the new show having so many more episodes, filming is going to be taking up most of 2023.
“They said to me, ‘We’re going to be shooting in 2023’, I said, ‘Great, when?’ They said, ‘All 2023’. I start shooting in February and finish in December.”
He also added, before stopping himself from going further.
“You said earlier that I could be busy for years, and I thought, ‘Yeah, maybe. Hopefully’, But if this show next year doesn’t hit the spot, then that might be it. Then it’s back to…”
Filming on the new series is going to be taking place in New York, and at the moment, Charlie Cox still doesn’t know too much about the new show, as he revealed he hasn’t seen any of the scripts or outlines, but says it all very convincing, adding:
“I’m fascinated to discover why they’ve chosen to do 18. I’m imagining there’s going to be an element to it that is like the old-school procedural show. Not necessarily case-of-the-week, but something where we go really deep into Matt Murdock the lawyer and get to see what his life is like. If that’s done right and he really gets his hands dirty with that world… I think there’s something quite interesting about that, to spend a lot of time in a superhero’s day-to-day life and you really earn the moments when he suits up.”
“Daredevil: Born Again” is due to begin filming soon and is being written and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord. The new show is currently scheduled to be released in Spring 2024, but obviously, schedules can change between then and now.
The previous Netflix Original series are also available to stream now on Disney+.
