After Jennifer Walters’ attorney at law comes to Disney+ this August, everyone’s favorite lawyer is once again set to return to the streaming platform. After nearly five years, Daredevil is once again returning with a brand new series with Charlie Cox starring as the Man Without Fear. After months of speculations and rumors, it now finally seems that Marvel Studios is moving forward with the much-awaited Daredevil series after its exodus from Netflix.
Earlier this year, Daredevil and other Marvel shows left Netflix to stream on Disney+. While the news surely made fans ecstatic, the future of Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock/Daredevil wasn’t exactly revealed for various reasons. However, Cox’s fantastic cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home had kindled the hopes of a Daredevil revival, now connected to the larger MCU.
According to Variety, Disney+ is moving forward with a brand new Daredevil series with Charlie Cox set to reprise his role. Additionally, the series is being developed by Chris Ord and Matt Corman who will serve as writers and executive producers for the show. Best known for their work on Covert Affairs and The Brave.
When will the new Daredevil series premiere on Disney+?
So far, Marvel Studios has not released any official announcement regarding the new Daredevil series. However, it is expected that the series will release in late 2023 or early 2024. Earlier this year, it was reported that Disney has set up Blind Faith Productions LLC implying that the series will indeed begin production soon. Moreover, Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige and The Perks of Being a Wallflower fame Chris Gray have been rumored to produce the upcoming series.
After his explosive cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home, actor Charlie Cox has revealed that he is open to a lot more cameos in the future. As it is being heavily rumored that Cox’s Matt Murdock will appear in the upcoming Echo and She-Hulk, fans still want his solo outing in the near future.
While Cox’s return as the Man Without Fear to Disney+ is inevitable at this point, it’s not an easy process to integrate the character into the larger MCU. For starters, Netflix’s Daredevil was critically acclaimed for its extremely dark and gritty tone, which is challenging for Marvel Studios considering Disney’s stringent terms and conditions regarding adult themes. As a result, it’s still unclear how exactly will Marvel Studios strike a balance between the character’s gritty beginnings at Netflix and a family-friendly storyline at Disney+.
Daredevil is now streaming on Disney+.
