Marvel Studios has decided to essentially start from scratch with Daredevil: Born Again, with the decision made after the footage shot prior to the Hollywood strikes was deemed to be not good enough. 

This isn't quite a repeat of Batgirl, but it is a surprising move on Marvel's part and one which has prompted the studio to reassess how they develop and release TV shows. Many fans have argued it was long overdue and, unlike the aforementioned DCEU movie which was completely scrapped, the next iteration of the Man Without Fear's small screen return is expected to retain at least some of the original's scenes and ideas. 

Among them, it appears, will be White Tiger. 

We recently shared details about that character's role in Daredevil: Born Again, but it's now said that the plan was for us to see multiple versions of the hero in the Disney+ TV series. If we had to hazard a guess, the plan was to follow the comic books by showing Hector Ayala deciding to pass the mantle to his niece, Angela Del Toro.

On the page, Angela grew up with her Uncle Hector and his friends, including "Uncle Danny", a.k.a. Iron Fist. She went on to be an officer of the NYPD for four years, gaining a bachelor's in political science and a masters in criminology before attending Quantico and eventually becoming an F.B.I. agent tasked with investigating Daredevil. 

As far as we're aware, a second White Tiger hasn't been cast in Daredevil: Born Again, though it's always possible that news was being kept a secret (the strikes may have also prevented the series from casting the hero). 

Marvel Studios appears to be intent on exploring street-level heroes in the MCU and that's most definitely not a bad thing. In fact, it's something we've been hoping to see happen ever since Spider-Man was introduced and, alongside Daredevil and The Punisher, throwing White Tiger into this series' mix feels like a smart move. 

Daredevil: Born Again is still happening but there's obviously no word on a premiere date.

If they had done this same thing with Captain Marvel, I would be more satisfied personally.

Hopefully this means they are adjusting for the better.

Game of Thrones famously had a pilot where HBO decided to retool some things and many of the actors were recast. And, for at least several seasons, that show turned out very well.

Streaming is tough because the provider picks up the entire season based on a script or pitch rather than a pilot. Also, they film all episodes prior to any viewer feedback versus the older TV model of releasing episodes while still filming the season.

Marvel for the most part hasn’t figured out their TV model yet. Hoping that this show being adjusted is then starting to learn.

Can we get Bullseye back? That's more important. Honestly most of what I know about White Tiger is from the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.

One of them is probably a Kang variant.

I like the White Tiger idea but who wants to watch this without Foggy and Karen? No point without them - I won't be watching. There are so many hanging threads I was looking forward to from the old show, like Dex and Melvin the Gladiator. It would have been so easy for them to just hire the people who made it great in the first place! I think Marvel hates its customers.
