“We get to tell some of the stories over and over again”: Charlie Cox Reveals Daredevil: Born Again Might Re-Visit His Origin Story, Hints Netflix Series Might Become Non-Canon


Drew Goddard’s magnum opus TV series Daredevil is one of the many shows whose ultimate demise was a huge disappointment for fans of the character. But coming to the present day, we’re in for a reboot of the Netflix series that will be aired on Disney+ now, and they’re changing everything.

Daredevil: Born Again is going to be your new and improved(hopefully) TV series based on Matt Murdock’s life, and yes, we’re getting Kingpin back! But the big question that looms over everyone’s minds regarding the reboot is whether or not this would uncanonize the Netflix version of the TV series, the answer to which we can only find out from either the showrunners or Cox himself.

All That Charlie Cox Knows About Daredevil: Born Again

Charlie Cox‘s face is kind of planted into our minds whenever we read the name Daredevil anywhere. It’s true because we just cannot see anyone else when thinking about Matt Murdock- that hall fight scene (and more), savvy one-liners replies, his looks, and so on.

He did do a pretty good job playing Murdock despite the unfortunate cancellation of the Netflix version after just three seasons, which honestly no one was prepared for. And now he’s back to do it all over again with the upcoming reboot.

But the question surrounding the release of the reboot of the 2015 series is whether or not Daredevil: Born Again would make sure that Drew Goddard’s work is sent into the deep pits of non-canon hell, who has the answer to it?

It is Cox, who conveniently is the only person to have revealed some information regarding answers to the question. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight from the D23 Expo, the 39-year-old actor shared some words regarding the upcoming Disney+ series-

“I met some of the writers for the first time last night. I haven’t read anything. I’m psyched to discover how they’re gonna—what stories they’re gonna tell over that long period of time [between Daredevil and Daredevil: Born Again]. Tonally what it’s going to be like. How is it different, how is it the same”

He then confirms our doubts with this-

“You know, [Marvel Studios President] Kevin [Feige] has been very clear about it being Season 1, not a Season 4. So, it’s a whole new deal.” 

But he does note that the origins of his character will be retold, although he says he’s not sure at the end-

“We potentially get to tell some of the stories over and over again in the same way that they do in the comics, you know. Every now and again, they start back at the beginning of Murdock’s journey as a little boy and they tell the whole origin story again. So maybe we’ll get to do that, I don’t know.”

It’s only a maybe, though. But as for fans of the Netflix version, sorry lads, you lot are just going to have to live in your own (and Goddard’s) version of Hell’s Kitchen Universe.

Daredevil Star Charlie Cox Does Not Take Too Well To Praise

It’s no doubt that Charlie Cox has cemented himself as the rightful actor to play the role of Daredevil. But he hasn’t let all the fame get to his head despite being an idol-like figure for fans of the character.

In fact, he’s not too fond of all the praise he’s been getting over the years as well as the applause from everyone regarding the comeback of his character with his own TV series.

During the very same interview with Entertainment Tonight at the D23 Expo, the Marvel superstar had this to say about the intense reactions of joy that he’s been receiving ever since the announcement of Daredevil: Born Again 

“You know, I’m horrified by any kind of, form of flattery. It gets a little embarrassing. So when you get a reaction like that, it’s like, it just feels surreal. Like, you can’t quite imagine it. So, yea, I feel really emotional.”

However, the actor didn’t cut short with his statement. He’s in fact very happy to be playing Matt Murdock again-

“It’s a bizarre experience to have played this character, to have the experiences I’ve had with this character and the journey that we’ve been on with the show. For that to be finished and ended, and in my mind and heart, it’s over, and then to be yanked back in suddenly, and suddenly we’re starting again, and it’s all happening again. It feels like a dream.”

It does feel like a dream to us too, Cox, and we’re as ecstatic and buzzed to be able to see you play Daredevil once again!

Daredevil: Born Again will be released on Disney+ in the spring of 2024.
