Daredevil’s sequel series will premiere on Disney+

  • by

After a string of announcements culminating in the confirmation of the MCU series name that would herald the superhero’s comeback in Spring 2024 when Daredevil: Born Again finally premieres on Disney Plus, Daredevil fans have had quite the week.

Before that, fans of the character had some welcome news at San Diego Comic-Con when it was revealed that Daredevil would also appear in the animated programme Spider-Man: Freshman Year, in which Matt Murdock will be voiced by Charlie Cox. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Cox’s character served as Peter Parker’s legal counsel, and Hawkeye was brought in to play Kingpin, with Vincent D’Onofrio reprising his role as the villain with a slightly updated sense of flair.

Now that the series will be 18 episodes long, three times longer than the typical runtime of current MCU shows on Disney Plus, it appears that Cox and D’Onofrio will be making up for lost time.

No more information was provided, so fans will have to wait for a firm release date. Besides that, the logo was presented with a markedly different graphic style and typography from what Daredevil had during his Netflix days.

The MCU’s Phase Four is currently anticipated to conclude with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever later this year and the long-anticipated Ant-Man 3. As a result, Daredevil will technically be a part of Phase Five.

The question of which other cast members from the Netflix era will return with the show’s stars, as well as how Disney’s Marvel will adapt its R-rated roots, were among the subjects that were not covered during the panel but that were on fans’ thoughts.

As anticipated, this year’s Comic-Con was not limited to Marvel, as evidenced by Shazam! over on DC’s camp, which features new titles for both Avengers: The Kang Dinasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. Along with other Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power previews, Fury of the Gods received its first trailer.

Every Upcoming MCU Project Daredevil Will Appear In

Marvel fans of all stripes, from movie goers to TV binge-watchers, have access to a lot of new material thanks to San Diego Comic Con. Daredevil fans, a subsection of fans who have been anticipating his entry into the MCU for literally years, are possibly the most enthusiastic. Fans of Daredevil were delighted to learn at this year’s SDCC that their favourite character, still portrayed by Charlie Cox, will go on to appear in a variety of MCU projects in the future, including his own sequel/reboot series.

Cox’s initial appearance in the Marvel universe, which is now presumably regarded MCU canon proper, came in the Netflix series Daredevil in 2015. Cox played Matt Murdock, a blind but tenacious lawyer who moonlights as a vigilante at night, in that role. In order to make place for Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ slate, Netflix shelved the show after three seasons, but it now appears that he is back and better than ever, ready to take names, kick asses, and presumably leave poor Foggy Nelson hanging in the courtroom once again.

While Matt has already made a (very brief) appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, he still has a lot of MCU work ahead of him, including roles in several upcoming films over the course of the next two years of Marvel’s Phase Four and beyond. Let’s take a look — well, everyone except Matt, of course — at the projects the Man Without Fear is scheduled to feature in, which we at Collider have a complete overview of.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

A costumed Matt Murdock has made an appearance in the newest trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, starring Tatiana Maslany, which is the first film Daredevil will appear in. Maslany plays Jennifer Walters in the show, a New York City lawyer who utilises her superpowers to promote her legal career. Since Walters and Murdock frequently appear as opposing counsel in court in comic books, it’s possible that Matt will also make an appearance as Daredevil or Matt Murdock.

Echo

In her standalone spinoff series, Matt Murdock will hopefully pair up with one of his best comic book buddies in the summer of 2023. Maya Lopez, portrayed by Alaqua Cox, is one of Matt Murdock’s most intriguing allies in the comics. She is a Native American woman who is Deaf and has connections to the Kingpin, Daredevil’s worst foe. Vincent D’Onofrio, Charlie Cox’s Daredevil co-star, who plays Wilson Fisk, will also feature in the series, so it’s probable that Maya and Matt will work together to defeat New York’s slimiest bad guy.

Spider-Man: Freshman Year

The first time Daredevil appears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as an animated character as opposed to a live-action one will be in this new animated series from Marvel Studios. While Matt Murdock has not made a noteworthy debut in animation, Spider-Man has made numerous notable appearances (cue Spider-Man pointing meme). In the new series, which is set in 2024, viewers will follow Peter Parker as he develops into the MCU Spider-Man we know and love. Charlie Cox’s voiced Matt Murdock will also make appearances, and he will be wearing a brand-new black and red suit that is less like his live-action armour and more like the spandex comics that fans have grown to love.

Daredevil: Born Again

The greatest is saved for last since Matt Murdock will formally return for a new season of his own television show. The eighteen-episode series Daredevil: Born Again will follow the Man Without Fear, it was revealed at Marvel’s Hall H panel, but no more information was provided at this time. We’re hoping to see a return from some of Cox’s other legendary Daredevil co-stars, such as Elden Henson as Matt’s law firm co-owner, Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Daredevil’s ally and supreme investigative reporter, and perhaps even Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, the broken but lethal man known as The Punisher. While it has been confirmed that Vincent D’Onofrio will also appear as Wilson
