Since the announcement that Daredevil: Born Again would join Marvel’s slate of upcoming Disney+ shows, fans are wondering how the new series will tie into the old Netflix show. Now it looks like star Charlie Cox has confirmed that the new daredevil the series will be “a whole new thing”.
Charlie Cox made his debut as Matt Murdock in 2015 as part of Marvel Television Defenders Saga on Netflix, and after the series was canceled as Marvel Studios regained control of their lost children, it was unclear if the character would be seen again. However, with the multiverse now offering an exit clause for continuity, Cox is once again playing a slightly different version of the same character and has his own 18-part series coming to Disney+ in early 2024.
Speaking with Extra recently, Cox opened up a bit about what it’s like to be back in character and how the show will give Daredevil a fresh start that apparently won’t just be season 4 of the original Netflix series. He said:
“It’s a season 1, it’s not a season 4, so it’s a whole new thing. I think that’s the way to go. If you have to do it again, do it differently. »
Daredevil’s Tone In The MCU Still Unconfirmed
As part of Netflix Defenders Saga which was recently transferred to Disney+ in its entirety, daredevil was a brutal show that earned its Mature rating and delivered something far darker than anything Marvel Studios has released as part of the mainline MCU. However, although there are concerns about daredevil being turned into a PG-13 affair will have to wait a bit longer to see if their fears come true or not.
Charlie Cox has already returned as Matt Murdock in a short scene from Spider-Man: No Coming Home but his first appearance as Daredevil comes in the current Disney+ series, She-Hulk : attorney of law. For those worried about the tone of Daredevil: Born Again, his next appearance didn’t help matters, considering the comedy angle used by She-Hulk.
However, the style and tone of She-Hulk especially when it comes to characters like Tim Roth’s Abomination, which made its first full return to the MCU since appearing in 2008. The Incredible Hulk. In contrast to his mean, serious take on the character from the early days of the MCU, Roth brought a humorous side to Emil Blonsky that some were quick to dismiss as ruining the character. There will no doubt be similar complaints against Cox’s first appearance in Daredevil, but perhaps it’s best to wait and pass judgment on Daredevil: Born Again when the series debuts.
While Marvel Studios has had a lot of reveals lately, thanks to both San Diego Comic-Con and Disney’s D23 Expo, there’s likely been a bit of a lull in big reveals for a while. now. Fans will have plenty of time to speculate on daredevil and other upcoming shows and movies, but you’ll have to keep in mind that what they’re expecting isn’t really what they’re getting from Marvel.
