Heading into Phase 5, Daredevil: Born Again is easily one of the most anticipated TV shows heading our way from Marvel Studios. Charlie Cox will continue his MCU journey as the Man Without Fear, while Vincent D'Onofrio is back as the Kingpin of Crime after taking aim at Hawkeye last Christmas.
Beyond that, we don't really know what to expect, though many have wondered if the title might offer some clues.
Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli's 1986 story followed Matt Murdock as he was driven to insanity and destitution by Wilson Fisk, but the arc was adapted - along with "Guardian Devil" - in Netflix's Daredevil during season 3. With that in mind, we're not surprised this Disney+ effort isn't going to actually adapt the comic its name is borrowed from.
"I don’t think anyone should read into the name as to the kind of stories that we’re going to tell," Cox said during a recent interview with inews (via Murphy's Multiverse).
The actor would go on to say, "I don’t think it’s a different character. I just think it’s maybe a different period of his life. I don’t think my interpretation will change - they hired the same actor."
So, we're getting a Daredevil who is the same but different, and that makes sense based on what we saw from Cox in Spider-Man: No Way Home and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. "Born Again" almost certainly refers to the fact 'ol Hornhead is getting a fresh start in the MCU, as the series is expected to be more akin to a reboot than season 4 based on past comments.
Cameras are set to begin rolling in New York City early next year, and with rumours swirling that Daredevil will have multiple costumes, a first look at the show may not be too far away.
Daredevil: Born Again is set to premiere on Disney+ in 2024.
