Jill Blankenship is an experienced superhero writer and has worked on shows like Arrow and The Last Ship. She also served as co-creator and showrunner for the Arrowverse series, Naomi. The show ran for a full season at CW but was canceled soon after its season finale.

The superhero drama was reportedly canceled due to low viewership and scheduling conflicts. Blankenship has now joined the writing team of Daredevil: Born Again. The other Arrowverse writer who has joined the writer’s room of the Charlie Cox starrer is Grainne Godfree.

Godfree has worked on multiple Arrowverse shows including Arrow, The Flash, and 20 episodes of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Deadline reported in 2020 that Grainne Godfree was considered to write and executive produce a project based on Jennifer Lynn Barnes’ novel series, The Inheritance Games.

Reports claimed that Amazon was planning to develop the project. However, no further updates are available regarding the show. Both writers have years of experience as they have worked in quite popular superhero shows. However, Marvel fans do not have a good feeling about the Arrowverse writers joining the writer’s room of Daredevil: Born Again.

Fans Feel Uneasy About Arrowverse Writers

Although both Jill Blankenship and Grainne Godfree have years of experience working in the superhero genre, Marvel fans are not very sure about the duo joining the writer’s room of Daredevil: Born Again.

Some of them are saying that Blankenship and Godfree’s experience working on the crossover episodes could be helpful for the Disney+ show, but others have also mentioned reasons to feel uneasy. One of the major concerns is which season of Arrow they have worked on.

Although the series ran for a long time on CW, fans’ opinion is not the same for all seasons of the show. However, some of the fans still have hopes for Grainne Godfree, who has worked on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which is considered one of the best shows of Arrowverse.

Fans have also asked the studio to hire writers with legal knowledge, as Charlie Cox has said that Daredevil: Born Again would focus more on courtroom drama. The news has only added to fans’ concerns about the show. Fans have already been concerned about Disney changing the tone of the show.

Daredevil: Born Again is set to release in Spring 2024 on Disney+.
