Charlie Cox first adorned the devil’s cowl back in 2015 with the series Daredevil. He has since then made appearances in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the movie that marked his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and She-Hulk. The series explored his character from an entirely new angle which Cox had been rather eager to do. The upcoming series Daredevil: Born Again will bring back his character alongside his arc enemy, Wilson Fisk.

The tone of his show will be much different than what fans have previously experienced. The show will have more episodes and would see the lives of both Daredevil and Matt Murdock. It would not only have lesser gore but also more of him as a lawyer.

It had previously been revealed that Daredevil: Born Again would not be TV-MA, meaning that not only would it have lesser gore, but the action sequences won’t be as vivid either. This, however, was explained by stating that just because a show does not have an R-Rating does not make it a bad show. This was a fact that fans agreed to and had since then been patiently waiting for any new updates.

“I’m now in the process of preparing for next year when we shoot the show: I’ve been re-reading the comics from start to finish, and I’m just starting to try and get back into shape for a role like that. I think because of the number of episodes they’ve committed to, there’ll be a heavy influence of courtroom stuff — Matt Murdock the lawyer in the new show. So I’m heavily focused on researching that area of this character, and his life. It was one of the areas we didn’t do a huge amount exploration around before. Even my accent is probably really rusty.”

In an interview with GQ, Charlie Cox revealed that he has already started preparing for his role and will begin filming in early 2023. He also revealed that the direction that his show will be going in would be much different than what fans are used to seeing and it would explore Matt Murdock as a lawyer as well.

Upon hearing the news that Matt Murdock in the courtroom would be explored more than Daredevil protecting Hell’s Kitchen in the dark has made fans angry and disappointed. They blame She-Hulk for its influence on the character and his show.



Many agree with the new angle, stating that it would still be comic-accurate and would still find aspects of both Matt and Daredevil in the show. Others are against this step and wish to see more of the thrashing between the hero and his enemies. The audience wants to see more action sequences than courtroom sequences.

Daredevil: Born Again will begin filming during the Spring of 2023.
