Fans won’t have to wait too long to see Charlie Cox again, despite the fact that Daredevil will be getting a special treatment in the form of an 18-episode series that will debut in 2024.
Fans of Daredevil have had a very eventful week as a result of a string of announcements that culminated in the confirmation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe series title that would herald the superhero’s comeback in Spring 2024, when Daredevil: Born Again eventually debuts on Disney Plus.
“Daredevil: Born Again”: Release Date Disney+ Series Gets
Before this, the San Diego Comic-Con had already provided some good news for fans of the character after it was revealed that Daredevil would also make an appearance in the animated series Spider-Man: Freshman Year, where Charlie Cox will voice Matt Murdock. This was the first piece of positive news for fans of the character since it was revealed that the character would also appear in the animated series. Cox was formally cast for the role when his character featured in the role of legal counsel for Peter Parker in the film Spider-Man: No Way Home. Meanwhile, Vincent D’Onofrio returned to the role of Kingpin in Hawkeye with a somewhat updated sense of style.
Now, it appears that Cox and D’Onofrio will be making up for lost time because one of the most important takeaways from the Marvel panel at SDCC 2022 is the fact that the series will be 18 episodes long, which is three times more than the typical duration of current Marvel Cinematic Universe shows on Disney Plus. In addition to that, the Daredevil logo was shown, and it featured a significantly different graphic style and typography than Daredevil had during his time on Netflix. However, no other details were provided, which means that fans will have to wait for an official release date before they can get excited.
However, anyone interested in seeing how the Marvel Cinematic Universe handles Daredevil will be able to get an early sneak peek at Cox in She-Hulk. This is because he makes a brief appearance at the end of the trailer for the upcoming series in full superhero form, wearing a new costume designed specifically for Daredevil. Daredevil, and Cox in particular, emerges from this Comic-Con as one of Marvel Studios’ camp’s largest winners overall, with at least three completely confirmed MCU credits coming over the next couple of years. This leaves Daredevil as one of Marvel Studios’ camp’s biggest victors overall.
In the larger scheme of things, Daredevil will be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Five. This is because Phase Four is now planned to end with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever later this year, as well as the long-anticipated release of Ant-Man 3. The question of which other cast members from the Netflix era will return alongside the show’s stars was one of the topics that was not addressed during the panel; however, it is a question that will be on the minds of fans. Another topic that was not addressed was how Disney’s Marvel will adapt its R-rated origins.
As was to be expected, in addition to new titles for Avengers: The Kang Dinasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, this year’s Comic-Con has been significantly more focused on companies other than Marvel. For example, over at DC’s camp, Shazam! The first trailer for Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power was released alongside further trailers for Fury of the Gods and Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
