With Kingpin showing up in Hawkeye and Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the rumors of Disney doing a revival of Daredevil were going stronger by the day. Now we have official news on a comeback.
According to Variety, Disney+ is officially moving forward with a Daredevil series with writers Matt Corman and Chris Ord (Covert Affairs). While there hasn’t been any official confirmation, we should probably expect Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio to reprise their roles in the series—albeit we could be looking at a completely different timeline.
Daredevil did get critical acclaim from fans, but it still had a lot of goofy elements to it—especially when it came to the Hand and the character of Elektra. With this revival, I’m hoping Disney carefully picks what made the series work, and disregards all of the other elements that didn’t. Hopefully there isn’t a quota of episodes to fill up, so maybe this time we can get more solid, concise seasons with minimal story filler.
Personally, I was kind of hoping for a film. While the MCU has been known for these blockbuster event premieres, I think there’s room in the box office for some smaller, serious films; and with the success of properties like The Batman, I think it’s time for Marvel to try and be a bit more experimental when it comes to their IP.
No release date has been set for the Daredevil revival, but you can catch the series on Netflix and on Disney+.
