DAREDEVIL TV Series In The Works For Disney+ - Could Be A Continuation Of The Netflix Show
After a lot of speculation and fan anticipation, a Daredevil TV series is officially in development for Disney Plus, overseen by Covert Affairs co-creators Matt Corman and Chris Ord.
Good news has arrived for fans of the Man Without Fear.
Back in 2015, Charlie Cox brought Matt Murdock back into live-action with Netflix's Daredevil. The show lasted three seasons, and became part of Marvel TV's push to create an Avengers-style television universe. Following the series' cancellation in 2018, however, fans were eager to see Marvel Studios regain the ability to use the Man Without Fear (the company was unable to use the character for two years after his show ended, according to Variety).
Now, it finally appears to be a reality, because a new Daredevil TV series is officially in the works for Disney Plus.
Variety reports that Chris Ord and Matt Corman — who co-created USA Network's Covert Affairs and were co-showrunners for NBC's The Brave and The CW's Containment — have been tapped to co-write and executive-produce a Daredevil show for Disney's streaming service.
Interestingly, The Hollywood Reporter seemed to indicate the series could be a continuation of Netflix's Daredevil, stating: "[The series] will be notable for being the first of the Netflix Marvel shows to get a new but continued series, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter." The wording is slightly unclear, so it's best to wait for more information. TVLine, however, called this new project a "Daredevil Revival."
Charlie Cox made headlines last year when he reprised the role of Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, where he acted as Peter Parker's lawyer after the Wall-Crawler was framed as a murderer by Mysterio. His comic-book archnemesis, Wilson Fisk, then made his MCU debut in Disney+'s Hawkeye, with Vincent D'Onofrio reprising his role from the Netflix/Marvel Universe.
If reports are to be believed, Daredevil could become a recurring figure in the MCU as development on his series continues. The hero has long been rumored to be featured in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and the upcoming Echo (which recently had its first official image released online).
Prior to the release of No Way Home, Kevin Feige stated during an interview with CinemaBlend that Charlie Cox would be the MCU's Daredevil in any potential future appearances: "If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil. Where we see that, how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen."
