It was expected that Daredevil would not be dropped after the Netflix series was canceled. We were right to believe it because a new project is in preparation for the Disney + platform. Charlie Cox should normally resume his role for the occasion.
Daredevil will settle in the MCU
Before Disney+ appeared on the streaming market, Marvel-stamped series were offered on Netflix. In particular, we had The Punisher, Jessica Jones or Daredevil. The latter was the most successful of all. So much so that its cancellation caused some annoyance among fans. They wondered, quite logically, if the incarnation of Charlie Cox had a chance to return.
With the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the character has actually signed his return, enough to let us think that Marvel and Disney wanted to do something with it. This intention attributed to them now finds confirmation, if we are to believe Variety. The very serious American media argues thata series is in preparation on Disney+. The program is currently in full development, with Matt Corman and Chris Ord writing and producing.
Charlie Cox is set to reprise the role
No details are yet known on the contours of the plot or on the position of the show within the framework of the MCU. One wonders how will be considered what has been done in the past with the character. The most logical thing would be to be part of the continuity, without starting from scratch. Even if what was created in the previous series does not correspond to the Disney spirit in terms of violence.
Although nothing is confirmed, it seems obvious that Charlie Cox will be back in the lead role. The studio would be taking a huge risk if they decided to replace him and Kevin Feige has already announced in the past that the actor was the first choice. We can also expect see you again Vincent D’Onofrio. The latter has already reappeared as Wilson Fisk in the series Hawkeye and he will be connected to Echo in the eponymous series.
If Daredevil’s revival in the MCU took so long, it’s because a clause prevented Disney from using the character for a certain period of time after the Netflix series was canceled. It may now be that other heroes operated on the competing platform will be incorporated into the Expanded Universe.
