Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox, gave several interviews during D23 last week. In them, he speculates on what's to come in Daredevil: Born Again, set to air on Disney Plus in 2024.
In an interview with Variety (via GameRant), Cox spoke about what life has been like since his MCU scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and how he had to adapt the character of Matt Murdock to the lighter tone of She-Hulk for his appearance in a recent episode.
As well as more people recognising him on the street, the actor has enjoyed the challenge of adapting the normally dark and gritty character into a version that's "a bit cheeky and a bit flirty."
The interviewer asks if we'll be seeing a more slapstick iteration of Daredevil in the upcoming show, but Cox dismisses the idea as it isn't "truthful enough to the source material."
Daredevil was the first Marvel show to air on Netflix before Disney swept all of them onto its own streaming service. Its three-season run cemented Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock as a fan-favourite, and their constant campaigning is believed to be what landed the actor a more permanent place in the wider MCU.
Cox was sure to state that he hadn't actually read any scripts for the new show so can't say anything for certain, but he's likely been giving a brief of the overarching themes the 18-episode season will contain. He has previous said he "knows a little."
In an interview with Extra, he said that Marvel exec Kevin Feige had explained Born Again was "a Season 1, it is not Season 4, so it is a whole new thing." This probably doesn't mean everything that happened in the TV show is going to be forgotten about – Kingpin is back and it's confirmed he's the same version – but that it's a new saga for the masked vigilante.
