The Daredevil of Hell’s Kitchen will return to Disney+’s corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Variety reports Marvel Studios is developing Daredevil for the service The Enemy Within‘s Matt Corman and Chris Ord as the head writers and executive producers. As of now, it is unclear if Charlie Cox is back as well, but considering his comments following his Spider-Man: No Way Home cameo, it is likely he will star as Matt Murdoch.
The previous version of Daredevil debuted on Netflix as one of its early streaming hits and ushered in a sub-section of MCU-related characters on the service. Of course, the relationship between Netflix and Marvel soured as Disney announced plans for its own streaming service and the Marvel Television unit was absorbed into Marvel Studios. Famously, the terms of the Netflix deal indicated Disney and the studio would not be able to use the characters from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, or The Punisher for the two years following the premiere of each show’s final season. Luckily for Daredevil, that stipulation expired last Fall.
As with Cox, it is unclear if Vincent D’Onofrio , Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, or Wilson Bethel will return to their roles, but as this latest development proves, nothing is out of the question. Granted, the new Daredevil will be different from its previous incarnation no matter who returns. As a Disney+ show, its themes and graphic nature will likely be toned down to conform to shows like WandaVision and Hawkeye.
As with all new projects, it is unclear when the series might debut on Disney+, but we can always hope for 2023.
