During Disney’s D23 event, MCU boss and producer Kevin Feige announced the continuation of the Daredevil series, originally released by Netflix. According to him, the project will be an independent series and will feature the return of the greats behind the previous edition, including Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio, respectively as Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk.
Entitled of born again, the production is something “totally new” and should not be understood as a fourth season. Now, the Man Without Fear officially enters the roster of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will have a story restarted from previously unseen events and possibly a new canon arc.
“I didn’t see a script…” said Cox, in an interview with Extra. “My feeling is that, based on the title born again, I think the sense is that this is a new beginning. It will be different, it will be totally different. It will be new stories and new ideas.”

Another novelty mentioned by Cox was the tone addressed by the series’ developers. While the Netflix production featured a darker atmosphere, the MCU project is expected to be more fun, but without departing from the concept created by the Netflix material.
“I don’t think it would work. Not throughout our entire season,” he explained. “Not with this character. I don’t think it’s necessarily true enough for the source material to actually work.”
demolisher: Born Again is scheduled to arrive exclusively on Disney+ sometime in 2024.
