Fans have been waiting to see what Marvel Studios had in store for the beloved Daredevil character. After all, Charlie Cox brilliantly brought the superhero to life for the Netflix series Daredevil. It revealed one of the darker sides of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and fans around the world immediately loved the unique take on the MCU. Unfortunately, the series was ultimately cancelled, and fans have since been begging for a return. Now it looks like they’ll be getting their wish with the newly-announced series Daredevil: Born Again.
It was previously reported that Disney and Marvel Studios had some kind of Daredevil revival in the works. In fact, with Charlie Cox’s iteration of the character appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home, it certainly looked like more of the character would be showing up in the MCU. But fans were unsure how and when those appearances would take place. Now we know that they intend to continue the storylines established in the Netflix series.
Furthermore, it’s been revealed that not only will Charlie Cox reprise his role as the titular character, but that the series will last for 18 episodes!
This is quite an increase compared to most Marvel Cinematic Universe shows available on Disney Plus. As such, one can imagine that they hope to keep things similar with the Netflix series and allow the character the proper amount of time that he deserves.
In the meantime, it seems more than likely that Charlie Cox will continue popping up in the MCU as Daredevil. Especially now that he had his recent Spider-Man cameo and the confirmation that he’ll be voicing the character for Spider-Man: Freshman Year. It’s definitely a great time to be a Daredevil fan.
The new Disney Plus series Daredevil: Born Again is expected to be released at some point in Spring 2024. So, while there will be quite a wait for the new series to hit the Disney Plus streaming service, fans can still stay tuned to ScreenGeek for updates as we have them. At the very least, we now know that Charlie Cox will finally once again be returning as Daredevil for his own television series.
