Marvel Fans Were Worried

When production of Daredevil: Born Again began, there were more than a handful of rumors that were suggesting that the show would not be as good as fans hoped it to be. One of the biggest challenges for the series was to meet the high standards that the Netflix series set for itself and judging by these whispers, the new show was not even close.

The firing of writers and crew members left and right, and Marvel’s track record with shows at the time did not help their case. While Loki and Moon Knight were excellent shows, unfortunately, there were far more projects that left fans disappointed.
