It turned out that the rumors were true. Charlie Cox will resume his role as Daredevil when the character returns to television, it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con in 2022. What should you expect, and when can you expect to see it? To find out everything we know about the forthcoming Daredevil episode “Born Again,” keep reading.
Daredevil: Born Again release date
The first 18 episodes of Daredevil: Born Again, which is slated to debut in the spring of 2024, have been ordered. For comparison, the first live-action Daredevil Netflix series aired for a total of 39 episodes throughout three seasons from 2015 to 2018.
Regarding the storyline of Daredevil: Born Again, not a single piece of information is accessible. The title, though, might reveal something.
The phrase “Born Again” can simply be a reference to the fact that a show that had been canceled has been revived. However, this plot also goes by the same name as one that appeared in issues #227–231.
Born Again is one of the scariest comic book plots, according to Den of Geek (opens in new tab), and if it were made into a movie, it would be more intense than anything else the Marvel Cinematic Universe has so far presented to the big screen.
The comic book’s main plot is around Karen Page telling Kingpin she is Daredevil in exchange for money from the drug trade. The Kingpin uses this information to his advantage to ruin Matt Murdock’s life, leaving him destitute, homeless, and devoid of the will to live. Ultimately, Daredevil and Captain America team up to combat the super soldier Nuke. This occurs after Daredevil helped Karen stop using drugs.
There is still a substantial amount of content that can be used by the new series, provided that it is not seen to be excessive, even though Netflix has already used some sections of the plot arc, according to the information published on the website.
Daredevil: Born Again’s cast
As of yet, the only actors who have been officially cast in the series are Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Kingpin, and Charlie Cox, who plays Daredevil.
If the above-mentioned narrative scenario is proven to be true, it is hoped that Deborah Ann Woll will reprise her role as Karen Page; however, neither side of this possibility has been confirmed.
Is Daredevil: Born Again available on Netflix?
After three seasons, the first season of Daredevil was canceled by Netflix, but it’s unlikely that this decision was made because of dwindling viewership. Instead, it was possibly because Disney had started making an effort to compile all of its Marvel-related properties for its very own streaming service, known as Disney Plus.
In January, Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Kingpin, said on the Marvel News Desk podcast, “You know, at the same time the group #SaveDaredevil started to rise, we started to uncover the reasons why it happened and so we realized what Marvel was doing because Disney Plus came out” (opens in new tab).
As a result, the three prior series will all still be available to stream on Netflix, but the new series will only be available to watch on Disney Plus.
Why did the two shows have such a big gap in between them? After the show was canceled, the characters were reportedly prohibited from appearing in any movies or television series that weren’t made by Netflix for two years. We may get to see a lot more of Daredevil and Kingpin than what has been teased thus far now that the time limit has been met.
Daredevil: Born Again on Netflix?
Daredevil’s original run ended in 2018 after three seasons, but its cancellation by Netflix is presumably not due to a decline in viewership. It was more likely caused by Disney’s efforts to collect all of its Marvel franchises for its streaming service, Disney Plus.
“You know, at the same time the group #SaveDaredevil started to rise, we started to uncover the reasons why that happened and so we realized what Marvel was doing because Disney Plus came out,” said Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Kingpin, on the Marvel News Desk podcast(opens in new tab) in January.
Because of this, the new series will only be available on Disney Plus, although you can still watch the first three seasons on Netflix.
Why are there so big pauses between the two shows? According to Variety, the characters were reportedly prohibited from appearing in any non-Netflix shows or movies for two years after the cancellation. Now that the allotted time has passed, perhaps we’ll get to see a lot more of Daredevil and Kingpin than was previously announced.
