Next March, Marvel Studios is bringing back Charlie Cox as the Man Without Fear, in a brand new Disney+ series, “Daredevil: Born Again”.

The show was initially announced back at the San Diego Comic Con in 2022 and originally the series was going to be released in the spring of 2024, but due to the actor’s and writer’s strikes, production on the series was halted. And when filming resumed, the show had gone through some major creative restructuring and a decision was made to turn it more into a revival of the original series that debuted on Netflix.

Vincent D’Onofrio will be returning to our screens as the Kingpin; also returning for the new series will be Jon Bernthal as The Punisher, along with Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson.

The series was announced to be eighteen episodes long, however, during the creative process, its now been adjusted with the first season will now consist of nine episodes.

Marvel Studios’ Head of Streaming, Television and Animation Brad Winderbaum recently appeared on the Official Marvel Podcast and gave an update on “Daredevil: Born Again”.

Well, Daredevil is incredible. It’s similar in some ways to X-Men ’97 because it’s reviving something that the fans love, but it is taking it in a new direction. These characters have matured. The universe is different than it was. Things have changed. Society has changed. Matt [Murdock] and Wilson [Fisk] have changed, and their characters are going to collide in ways we’ve never seen before. It’s no longer enough to try to murder each other. There’s a whole game of politics at play.

Earlier this year, Marvel released a brand new series, “Echo”, which saw Vincent D’Onofrio return as the Kingpin and the final episode set up that the Kingpin could make a political move to becoming the mayor of New York, similar to the story in the comic book.

Marvel Studios is likely to give fans a look at the new “Daredevil” series at one of its upcoming presentations at either the San Diego Comic-Con or D23: Ultimate Fan Event this summer.

Roger’s Take: It’s great to hear that this series is more connected to the Netflix series and shows how things have changed since that time, especially as New York went through the blip and while we’ve seen little snippets of them in “Hawkeye”, “She-Hulk” and “Echo”, it’ll be great to dive a little more into their lives.

While we wait for the new series, you can check out the previous seasons of “Daredevil” on Disney+ now.
