In conversation with NME, Charlie Cox discussed what he thinks the new daredevil will now look like this Disney produces the show. “I think this character works best when it’s aimed at a slightly more mature audience. My instinct is that Disney+ it will be dark, but probably not as gory.”
We’ve already gotten a taste of what’s new Matt Murdock– he appeared in She-Hulk: Lawyer for a few episodes as the love interest of Jen Walters (Tatiana Maslany). The character is “quick witted and funny and at times charismatic and carefree,” she said cox. Yes, the sitcom nature She Hulk meant Daredevil’s brooding musings wouldn’t go down well in 72-and-sunny Los Angeles. Cox is broughttaking that same mindset to the new show and saying, “This has to be reincarnation, it has to be different, why else are we doing it?”
While I loved the Netflix show, I’m not going to be an advocate for continuity here just because an actor was recast in their previous role. Comics restart all the time and Daredevil: Reborn will very likely be an entirely new story with entirely new characters. If you’re expecting a sequel to the 2015 show, Cox says, “We did that. Let’s take the things that really worked, but can we expand on them? Can we appeal to a slightly younger audience without losing what we’ve learned about what works?”
It’s a good question! So much of what worked on the 2015 show came not only from Cox’s performance, but also from the tightly planned, action-packed, character-driven nature of the first season. Disney+ has been an absolute hit or miss with these Marvel shows, almost all of which sit firmly in the middle ground with only a few standout scenes that carry the show throughout the season.
However, Disney thinks so Daredevil: Reborn has what it takes to go the distance, having ordered 18 episodes, three times that of any other live-action Marvel show. Charlie Cox will be filming until 2023 and he’s already thinking about what Daredevil training will entail. He also told NME that he “didn’t see any scripts or drafts.” But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have ideas.
“I imagine there will be an element that is like the old-school procedural show. Not necessarily a case of the week, but something where we really dig deep into Matt Murdock the attorney and see what his life is like,” Cox explained, “when that’s done right and he really gets his hands on this world.” gets dirty… I think there’s something very interesting about spending a lot of time in the day-to-day life of a superhero and really earning the moments when he’s getting dressed.”
The original Netflix showwhich ran for three seasons from 2015 to 2018, is now available for viewing Disney+. The new show entitled Daredevil: Rebornis streaming on Disney+ sometime in 2024.
