Yesterday evening, we learned that Daredevil: Born Again will premiere on Disney+ next March. That's later than expected, but the WGA/SAG-AFTRA strikes slowed things down, as did Marvel Studios' decision to creatively overhaul a series which wasn't working in its previous form.

TV Line spoke to Charlie Cox, confirming that a total of nine episodes were shot for the series. When Daredevil: Born Again was announced, it was as an 18-episode TV show, so something has clearly changed. 

However, this appears to confirm claims from a few online scoopers who have said the series is being split in two, with the other 9 episodes now likely to serve as Daredevil: Born Again "season 2."

In a separate interview (which you can watch below), Cox also revealed that production has wrapped on the series. Given the expense associated with taking the show back to the drawing board, it's possible the rest of the episodes have been put on hold.

For starters, there's no longer time to shoot and release those before Spider-Man 4 - which supposedly features Daredevil and The Kingpin - arrives in theaters. 

Talking about his future as Matt Murdock, Cox said, "My knees are not what they were ten years ago, nor is my back. It's a really physically demanding show, which I love. We wouldn't have it any other way. It's kind of what makes it what it is."

"There will definitely come a time where I am not able to do it anymore, but for right now, [we'll] just keep doing the best job we can and loving it. I feel incredibly grateful to still be making the show, and hopefully we've got another 10 years in us."

Vincent D'Onofrio chimed in to add, "We don't get to work together a lot," with Cox admitting they don't get "many" shared moments in Daredevil: Born Again after previously having only "a handful of scenes" together in previous seasons of Daredevil.

So far, Cox has played the Man Without Fear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and Echo, while D'Onofrio previously showed up as Wilson Fisk in the latter and Hawkeye.

18 to 9. They got a massive cut.
RolandD - 5/15/2024, 9:32 AM
@KingLeonidas - Yes but hopefully 10-18 are season 2 or 5 depending on how you count it It’s still longer than any other Disney* show as well.
philinterrupted - 5/15/2024, 10:56 AM
@KingLeonidas - good, I can only imagine how many boring episodes there would have been to fill and 18 count.
TheMetaMan - 5/15/2024, 11:56 AM
@KingLeonidas - I see it as a distinct advantage in that they can produce and release nine quality episodes with cohesive and substantial storytelling rather then eighteen episodes that may involve a lot of filler. Fiege did mention the plan is to release fewer content each year moving forward and DD born again might be an example of this.

Post that X-Men '79 article, ya cowards!

@Doomsday8888 - gym or finale. Gym or finale. Hmmmmmmm

Doomsday8888 - 5/15/2024, 9:31 AM
If gym then beware for spoilers!

Spoiler alert: Amazing finale. :)
thedrudo - 5/15/2024, 11:32 AM
@Vigor - Definitely the gym and X-Men as a great after workout treat.
Vigor - 5/15/2024, 11:51 AM
@thedrudo - I actually tackled the show first. Now I have something to think back on as I conquer the stair master !
KingLeonidas - 5/15/2024, 4:12 PM
@Vigor - Ah just the stairmaster? In that case you could have done gym and xmen together!
Vigor - 5/15/2024, 4:44 PM
@KingLeonidas - haha would have been a good plan. The stairmaster was just the warmup though! Injured my foot running so I need something to help loosen and strengthen the legs

I knew they're not going to stick to 18 episodes. With that massive reshoot? And disney reducing marvel input? I knew it that's too demanding.
bobevanz - 5/15/2024, 10:42 AM
@Gabimaru - I assume there was a bunch of filler, it's how they keep subscribers for three months instead of two lol so I assume the same here
GhostDog - 5/15/2024, 9:05 AM
Still crazy to have these two back again. 2018, it really seemed over for good.
TheVisionary25 - 5/15/2024, 9:06 AM
@GhostDog - those were dark times…
RolandD - 5/15/2024, 9:35 AM
@GhostDog - Yes and I still want to gloat to the “insider” who said that Disney would contractually never be able to do a follow up again. Yeah, he got under my skin but I am having the last laugh.
bobevanz - 5/15/2024, 10:43 AM
@RolandD - yeah most of these "insiders" aren't insiders, yet people literally give them money for lies or generic cookie cutter truths
RolandD - 5/15/2024, 12:16 PM
@bobevanz - This was someone on here. I may be exaggerating but he seemed to enjoy shooting down anyone’s hope about the characters coming back on Disney.
RolandD - 5/15/2024, 12:17 PM
@bobevanz - But yeah, I absolutely agree with you about these scoopers. At least we don’t have to pay for it because you know Josh is always going to write an article about it.
TheVisionary25 - 5/15/2024, 9:06 AM
I have a feeling instead of scrapping the 18 episode order , they instead have separated it into two halves of 9 episodes each…

One batch could fall under the “Born Again” subtitle while the other could maybe be under a different one perhaps from the comics like “Guardian Devil” etc?.

Anyway we’ll see , looking forward to it regardless and hope it turns out well!!.

Also someone give Charlie the elixir of youth , he needs to be DD forever haha.

10 years? He'll be lucky if Elektra doesn't take over after second season. It happened in the comics, so there's a precedence for it.
Spoken - 5/15/2024, 9:11 AM
@NickScryer - Lol she most likely will or at least they're gearing up for that to happen.

Checkout this Great Poster from Screenrant Avengers 5 movie being actually being a World War Hulk movie.

This concept poster depicts several Hulk characters in the MCU going up against 18 of Marvel Studios' strongest superheroes.

Marvel Comics' World War Hulk features most of the Marvel Universe's heroes, so this would be the perfect storyline for a future Avengers movie.

Check it out for yourself.

AllsGood - 5/15/2024, 9:34 AM
@Vigor - That MCU Avengers: World War Hulk poster is Amazing looking. I need to start posting my own articles and stories.
Vigor - 5/15/2024, 9:39 AM
@AllsGood - do it!

@AllsGood -

@AllsGood - Cool poster, but personally, I would want to see a WWH film for at least a decade (if ever). Much more interested in them building the character first. Perhaps a grey hulk/Joe Fixit film
AllsGood - 5/15/2024, 10:23 AM
@Izaizaiza - Avengers 5 movie is Perfect timing for World War Hulk movie. The Green Hulk is what everyone is watching today. No ONE even knows anything about the Grey Hulk or Joe Fixit be confusing for the general Audience.
Izaizaiza - 5/15/2024, 10:35 AM
@AllsGood - Well, they would certainly have to take some time to explain or show his transformation into the grey hulk... But to be fair, they didn't show us his transformation into Professor Hulk at all. He was just like "Hey, look at me! I got the brains and the brawn!"

Anyway, I guess I just want a smaller, character driven story. I'd be afraid WWH would just be empty action
AllsGood - 5/15/2024, 10:51 AM
@Izaizaiza - In the World War Hulk comics the Hulk is extremely intelligent and out thinks the Greatest Minds in in the comics and in the MCU. World War Hulk he has a lot of Professor Hulk but Angry and without the Bruce Bannor Personality.
Izaizaiza - 5/15/2024, 10:53 AM
@AllsGood - I'm sure if they do make a World War Hulk film it will make a gazillion dollars
mountainman - 5/15/2024, 9:23 AM
Previously they had said 18 episodes split into 2 9 episode arcs. Seemed like it was always a 2 season original pick up but they were just calling it 1 before.
TheFinestSmack - 5/15/2024, 9:41 AM
@mountainman - exactly, this isn't news in any way.
supermanrex - 5/15/2024, 9:24 AM
it could be 9 episodes is more lean and mean with substance than probably 18 that might had had a lot of filler.
