MOVIE NEWS – After moving the series to Disney+, Marvel Studios is now working on a Daredevil reboot.
With each passing day, it seems more and more likely that Marvel Studios will bring a Daredevil reboot to Disney+, as a new report from Production Weekly, an industry magazine that covers the production of new movies and TV series, reveals that a “Daredevil reboot” title is on the list. It doesn’t get much clearer than that. With Daredevil moving to Disney’s streaming platform, along with the entire Marvel universe on Netflix, it seems that the adventures of the ‘Man Without Fear’ will continue in one form or another.
After the series’ cancellation in 2018, fans immediately began demanding that Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, played by Charlie Cox, be brought back into the fight as soon as possible…
… and thankfully, Marvel Studios listened. The star of the series finally made it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, courtesy of a cameo appearance in the recently premiered, record-breaking Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which Peter Parker enlists the legal skills of Matt Murdock after the villain Mysterio reveals his secret identity.
While Murdock won’t be suiting up in the Spider-Man sequel, his appearance was the first sign that Marvel has big plans for the superhero in the future, and this latest listing is just the latest news that a standalone project for the character is already actively in development. At the mention of the word ‘reboot’, fans will surely be wondering what exactly the studio has planned for the character, but fear not, as Charlie Cox himself recently explained how a reboot-like approach could work.
“I don’t think it makes sense to pick up where we left off,” Cox explained about the character’s return. “A few years have passed. It’s Daredevil but it’s re-imagined, it’s slightly different. Do you know what I texted my friends when I found out this was all happening? ‘Born again’.”
Daredevil and other Netflix/Marvel series, including Jessica Jones, The Punisher and Luke Cage, are now available on Disney+.
