The news has left some fans worried about how the character will be portrayed, with many fearing The Man Without Fear is getting way too comedic. Well, talk with Variety Charlie Cox assured fans that Daredevil wouldn’t get slapstick… although there could be a lot more levity.

Appearing on D23, Cox said that Daredevil: Born Again won’t go the sitcom route of She-Hulk : attorney at law. The actor hinted that the Disney+ series’ soft reboot would retain some of the same darkness as the Netflix show, while adding that there was still room for a few laughs.
“There are a lot of comics, Daredevil comics, there are a lot of series where there is levity. There is lightness. There is pleasure. And I think with 18 episodes you have time to do a bit of both. »

If you have to do it again, do it differently. »
Cox also explained the meaning of the title, revealing that it doesn’t mean that Daredevil: Born Again will adapt the 1986 comic book story arc by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. “I don’t think that means we’re going to tell Frank Miller’s story from Born Again in the comics,” he said. “I don’t think it means that.
