Marvel Studios’ Daredevil show, can achieve what Netflix has never done: incorporate a diverse cast of Marvel Cinematic Universe characters. Charlie Cox reprised his role as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home in late 2021 and also will be making an appearance in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

The appearance signified to audiences that the former Daredevil star of Netflix’s live-action Daredevil series had a new lease on life in the MCU. This happened years after the show’s three-season run ended, sparking anticipation that Marvel Studios may revive the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen.

Maya Lopez making a comeback in the Daredevil series as another MCU character would make sense. The two characters are intimately related in the comics, thus they might already have a relationship by that point in the shared universe. Their romantic relationship is unlikely, but her training can continue after Daredevil’s appearance in Echo.

What to expect from Daredevil: Born Again?

One of the most significant advantages of Marvel Studios’ involvement in the new Daredevil series is the increased likelihood that prominent MCU characters will appear. Because Marvel TV and Netflix previously had a strained relationship with Marvel Studios, Daredevil’s interactions were confined to characters from other Marvel/Netflix productions. In the upcoming Daredevil reboot, Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock will be able to interact with a variety of MCU characters.
