To the surprise of perhaps no one at this point, a new series of Marvel’s Daredevil aka Matt Murdock is in the works at Disney+.Our sister site, Variety is reporting.
Matt Corman and Chris Ord, who previously co-founded USA Network’s Covert Affairs, are expected to pen and make the Disney+ series.
Marvel’s Daredevil starring Charlie Cox – the first “street hero” to be brought to the small screen by Netflix (and now discontinued by Marvel TV) – premiered in April 2015 and was canceled after three seasons. Netflix’s Marvel Series Also Included Jessica Jones (starring Krysten Ritter and running for three seasons, Luke Cage (starring Mike Colter and spanning two seasons,Who punished (starring Jon Bernthal), Iron Fist (starring Finn Jones) and a one-off collaboration series Defenders (launched in July 2017).
As our sister site Variety reported back in the day, Netflix’s deal with Daredevil et al had a provision that prevented title characters from appearing “in any non-Netflix series or series for at least two years following cancellation.” Sure enough, last December – three many years later Daredevil get the ax – Cox reprises the role of Matt Murdock on the big screen in Spider-Man: No way from homethe same week that former lead actor Vincent D’Onofrio made his first “encore” appearance on Disney+ ‘s Hawk Eye as Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin.
Marvel Studios has made no official announcements about the new Daredevil series, nor does it comment on projects in development.
