The aspects from the “Born Again” comics that appeared in Daredevil Season 3 were indirect. Matt was assumed to be dead after the incidents of The Defenders, followed by his mother (Maggie the Nun) nursing him back to health a direct reference. The character of Kingpin played by Vincent D’Onofrio came to know who Daredevil was and sent a villain to slay him and his squad. The Netflix series used an indirect reference from the comics, the villain Nuke was the enemy, but the character ended up being a part of what’s now called Jessica Jones.

Daredevil: Born Again story adaptation might be a semi-duplication. And if it’s a reboot, some of the Born Again episodes should build up Daredevil before the show can break him. And the viewers need to connect and admire this version of Matt Murdock.

Bringing back the actor Charlie Cox is a kind of revival for the fans. It’s similar to the technique taken with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Because the film ended at a homecoming dance, it was also an indirect reference to Spider-Man finally being pushed towards Marvel storytellers and not just Sony Pictures.

Well of us, getting this character back in any form is a blessing. Particularly because Marvel was under no commitment to re-hire the same actors, so it’s a perfect gift. Kevin Feige and the studio really know when they have something special coming for us, and getting Daredevil: Born Again seems like they understand the Netflix series was remarkable.

Daredevil: Born Again is slated to premiere in 2024.
