Drew Goddard’s magnum opus television series daredevil is one of many shows whose ultimate demise was a huge disappointment for fans of the character. But coming to the present day, we are about to reboot the Netflix series which will be streaming on Disney+ now, and they are changing everything.
Daredevil: Born Again is going to be your new (hopefully) improved TV series based on the life of Matt Murdock, and yes, we’re getting Kingpin back! But the big question on everyone’s minds regarding the reboot is whether or not it would decanonize the Netflix version of the TV series, the answer to which we can only find the showrunners or Cox himself.

Everything Charlie Cox Knows About Daredevil: Born Again
Charlie Cox’s face is somehow stuck in our minds every time we read Daredevil’s name anywhere. It’s true because we just can’t see anyone else thinking about Matt Murdock – that fight scene in the room (and more), the stunt doubles’ savvy responses, his looks, etc.
He did a good job playing Murdock despite the Netflix version’s unfortunate cancellation after just three seasons, which honestly no one was prepared for. And now it’s back to do it all over again with the next reboot.
But the question surrounding the release of the 2015 series reboot is whether or not Daredevil: Born Again would cause Drew Goddard’s work to be sent to the depths of non-canon hell, who has the answer?

It’s Cox, who is conveniently the only person to reveal information regarding the answers to the question. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight from the D23 Expo, the 39-year-old actor shared a few words regarding the upcoming Disney+ series –
“I met some of the writers for the first time last night. I haven’t read anything. I can’t wait to find out how they are doing, what stories they will tell over this long period [between Daredevil and Daredevil: Born Again]. Tonally what it’s going to be. How is it different, how is it the same?
He then confirms our doubts with this-
“You know, [Marvel Studios President] Kevin [Feige] was very clear that this is a season 1, not a season 4. So that’s a brand new deal.
But he notes that his character’s origins will be told, though he says he’s not sure at the end-
“We can potentially tell some of the stories over and over again the same way they do in the comics, you know. Every once in a while they start all over again at the beginning of Murdock’s journey as a little boy and they tell the whole origin story all over again. So maybe we can do that, I don’t know.
It’s only a maybe, though. But as far as fans of the Netflix version go, sorry guys, you’re going to have to live in your own (and Goddard’s) version of Hell’s Kitchen Universe.

Daredevil Star Charlie Cox Doesn’t Take Too Well To Praise
There’s no doubt that Charlie Cox has established himself as the legitimate actor to play the role of Daredevil. But he didn’t let all the fame go to his head despite being an idol to the character’s fans.
In fact, he’s not too fond of all the accolades he’s received over the years as well as everyone’s applause regarding his character’s return with his own TV series.

During the same interview with Entertainment Tonight at Expo D23, the Marvel superstar had this to say about the intense reactions of glee he’s been receiving since the announcement of Daredevil: Born Again –
“You know, I’m horrified by any form of flattery. It gets a bit awkward. So when you get a reaction like that, it’s like surreal. Like, you can’t quite imagine it. So, yeah, I feel really emotional.
However, the actor did not cut his statement short. He’s actually very happy to play Matt Murdock again-
“It’s been a weird experience to have played this character, to have the experiences that I’ve had with this character and the journey that we’ve been on with the show. For that to be over and done with, and in my mind and my heart, it’s over, and then suddenly being brought back, and suddenly, we’re starting again, and it’s all starting again. It feels like a dream.
Sounds like a dream to us too, Cox, and we’re just as thrilled and thrilled to be able to see you playing Daredevil again!
Daredevil: Born Again will be released on Disney+ in the spring of 2024.
