Marvel Studios is developing a new Daredevil series for Disney+

By Stephen Ippolito | May 20th, 2022

Yesterday was an great day for Daredevil fans. Around late afternoon, Variety was first to report that a new series centered around the man without fear was being developed for Disney+. The outlet also reported that Matt Corman and Chris Ord, best known for co-creating USA Network’s Covert Affairs, had been hired to co-write and executive-produce the series.

The show will see Charlie Cox reprise his role as Matt Murdock (AKA Daredevil). Cox, of course, played the fan-favorite role for three seasons on Netflix’s Daredevil series and one season on the team-up show The Defenders (both now available to watch on Disney+). He also officially made his MCU debut when he briefly appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home last December.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it sounds like the new series, which will be produced by Marvel Studios and take place in the MCU, will continue some story elements from the Netflix show. In their post, they wrote that “[The series] will be notable for being the first of the Netflix Marvel shows to get a new but continued series, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.” This matches a report from last year that described it as a “soft reboot.”

Outside of Cox, it’s unknown which actors (if any) will also be returning. The only one that you can probably count on is Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin. Like Cox, D’Onofrio has already returned to the role when he appeared in Disney+’s Hawkeye series this past winter.

While the series probably won’t arrive until 2023-2024, there have been multiple rumors that will see Cox’s Daredevil appear in other projects before then. Both She-Hulk and Echo (which recently started filming) have been the prime suspects of where we will see him next.

So what do you think about Daredevil getting a new show?
