Originally starting as a Netflix product, Daredevil became a huge hit, along with The Punisher and Jessica Jones. These productions were a part of the Defenders saga but were eventually canceled as the distribution rights were returned to Disney.

With fans campaigning to see Matt Murdock return to Hell’s Kitchen, Marvel announced Daredevil would join the MCU at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022. He will be reintroduced in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and then his own series titled Daredevil: Born Again.
Will Born Again be a continuation?
Considering the title of the new show, many have speculated that it will start with a new origin, a soft reboot, or just a continuation. Commenting on the discussion to Extra at D23, Daredevil actor Charlie Cox stated:
“I don’t know anything. I haven’t seen a script… My feeling is, based on the title ‘Born Again,’ I think that the sense is it is a new beginning, it is going to be different, it is going to be totally different. It is going to be new stories, and new ideas.”
Whether we get to see all the Defenders join the MCU is yet to be seen, but considering the upcoming expansion to the MCU, it’s not so farfetched. Considering the build-up to the upcoming MCU films including Avengers: Secret Wars, the heroes wouldn’t mind having some more allies.
Does Daredevil join the Avengers?
Amongst the many theories, fans suspect Daredevil will join the Avengers, as there is precedence in the comics already. Charlie Cox also chimed on this debate, though jokingly confirming the possibility, he said:
“I see him as being a key member of the Avengers, imperative to everything that they do.”

Despite the fanfare, it would be odd to see the character join the Avengers since they deal with higher threats, while Daredevil is more of a street hero. While there are characters such as Hawkeye and Black Widow who were also mere humans, they were also tech-savvy and trained assassins.
Daredevil: Born Again is expected to premiere in the spring of 2024.
