Charlie Cox’s Daredevil: Born Again has been one of the most awaited series ever since the original series finale gave fans one of the most intense interactions between Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk. The show will soon be going into extended production and with it, getting closer to its premiere on Disney+. What once fans believed to be impossible completely changed with his appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home and then She-Hulk.

A question that has often been asked is what rating the show would be getting and whether or not it would be given a maturity rating. This has finally been answered by insiders, making fans want even more of what the character can offer.

Daredevil: Born Again’s Rating Would Not Be R-Rated

One aspect that fans thought movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe lacked was the maturity rating, which had been overturned by the addition of Deadpool 3 in the works with Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman. Charlie Cox‘s upcoming series made fans hope to see another project by the MCU to be R-Rated, but by the looks of it, that would not be the case. The question has been asked even during the San Diego Comic-Con when both Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio made appearances.

“A.) No, it won’t be, it never was going to be

B.) DD isn’t an R-rated character anyone who’s opened a comic can tell you that

C.) who the f*ck cares as long as it’s good”

A rating that had remained to be unconfirmed for a while now has been clarified now. Daredevil as a character does not need an R-rating to make sure the series lives up to the mark and with the actor wanting a reincarnation of Matt Murdock, the possibilities become endless as to what the show could achieve.

Something that She-Hulk saw was the humoristic and light-hearted side of Matt Murdock. While Daredevil as a character has always been able to connect more with a mature audience, Charlie Cox wishes to do something different in his upcoming show because he believes that if what he is doing isn’t much different then there is no point in a new show.

“My opinion is this character works best when he’s geared towards a slightly more mature audience. My instinct is that on Disney+ it will be dark but it probably won’t be as gory.”

To have the aspect dark does not necessarily require an R-Rating and everyone involved in the show also understands that. While there has not been much revealed about Daredevil: Born Again, fans are just as ecstatic to see what is to come.

Daredevil: Born Again will be available to watch on Disney+ in the spring of 2024.
