We finally get a bigger reveal of Charlie Cox back as DAREDEVIL in the SHE HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW teaser. It’s still very short and we also finally get a better view of the new suit. Gotta say it’s close to the Netflix version, but I truly hope they’re not going to yuck him up. What I mean is I loved the subtle humour of the Netflix show as well as the dead seriousness of it. So far I’m hopeful. How about you?
A new article about Charlie’s return to his cowl and probing cane. As we already knew DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN is getting a full 18 episode order from Disney+. That means where the Netflix version had 13, we are getting five more episodes.
Daredevil: Born Again’s 18-Episode Order May Change the MCU Forever
It’s been pretty evident since the events Spider-Man: No Way Home that Daredevil (Charlie Cox) would have an extended role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As confirmed by the latest trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the character will appear at some point during the courtroom comedy. But that’s not all — the character is reportedly appearing in Echo next summer and a year from then will appear in his own self-titled series, Daredevil: Born Again.
The fan-favorite vigilante getting his own show was pretty sizable news in its own right…until Marvel boss Kevin Feige made an even bigger reveal — Born Again will be the first show from Marvel Studios to get 18 episodes. Not counting animated properties, the longest shows to date are WandaVision and She-Hulk, which either have clocked in at or will be nine episodes each. That means Daredevil’s solo MCU outing will be double the size of the MCU’s current longest project.
It’s a move that could arguably change the franchise as we know it.
Fans of Netflix’s Daredevil series praised the show’s ability to craft detailed story beats for many of the characters involved in the project, all the way from Ol’ Hornhead and Kingpin down to supporting characters and second-level antagonists. All three seasons of the show capped out at 13 episodes, five less than the character is getting from Disney+.
This hefty episode order should help solve one of Marvel’s biggest criticisms yet with the studio’s Disney+ offerings, where many suggest the shows should be longer so endings are rushed and quickly put together.
Beyond that, it signals Marvel’s willingness to go back to the days of network television and extended production schedules. Given that each episode to-date has taken upwards of a month to shoot, that means Daredevil: Born Again could take a full year and a half to film. Even if the show managed to expedite filming to three weeks per episode, the cast and crew of the series will be assembled and filming for over a full calendar year.
Suffice to say, not only will Daredevil: Born Again continue Marvel’s dedication to street-level storytelling, but it’s also allowing the studio to bend itself in ways it never has and as the late great Steve Jobs once said, “Innovation is the only way to win.”
Daredevil: Born Again is expected to drop Spring 2024. The first three seasons of Daredevil can now be seen on Disney+.

So this is where I’m a little antsy about this announcement. We knew it was coming but I’m hoping this show is as close to what we had on the Netflix version. With the teaser trailer from SHE HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW just released with Charlie as Daredevil making an appearance, I’m not happy with the costume. The yellow though comic faithful, I don’t like. I loved his Netflix costume in that is looked more real in terms of what would be used. I’m thinking of Chris Evans’ costume as Steve Rogers/Captain America in both Captain America: The Winter Solider and Captain America: Civil War. I’m also hoping for an announcement soon with news Charlie’s Netflix buddies will be joining him such as Elden Hensen (Foggy Nelson), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elodie Yung (Elktra Nachios), and others. We already know Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk/Kingpin) will be joining him. Here’s hoping. The new series will come in at a whopping 18 episodes.
Charlie Cox’s Daredevil Gets Second Life Via ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ To Highlight Marvel TV News – Comic-ConCharlie Cox’s Daredevil Gets Second Life Via ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ To Highlight Marvel TV News – Comic-Con
Charlie Cox’s iteration of Daredevil is officially getting a second life via Daredevil: Born Again—a new series coming to Disney+ with an 18-episode first season in 2024. Joining Cox on the show is Vincent D’Onofrio, who reprises his role from recent Marvel series as mob boss Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin.
The announcement of Daredevil‘s return was made Saturday at Comic-Con’s Hall H by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
Other Marvel streaming series mentioned by Feige during the Hall H presentation and coming in 2023 include Secret Invasion, coming in spring; Season 2 of Loki, coming in summer; Ironheart, coming in fall; and Agatha: Agent of Chaos, coming in winter.
A new series centered on Cox’s character had been awaited by die-hard fans since Netflix’s Daredevil was canceled in 2018 after three seasons. Rumors about a Daredevil series revival started following the appearance of Daredevil (Cox) in Spider-Man: No Way Home and main antagonist Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) in Disney+ series Hawkeye.
Talk about potential new installment ramped up when the Marvel Netflix series, including Daredevil and team-up limited series The Defenders, moved to Disney+ this past spring after the rights to the titles reverted to Disney. It was revealed in May that a new Daredevil series was in the works at Disney+ with Covert Affairs creators Matt Corman and Chris Ord attached to write and executive produce.
Daredevil is an attorney by day and crimefighter by night otherwise known by the name Matt Murdock. Cox will additionally reprise the role as part of the cast of Disney+’s upcoming series Echo, slated for next year, while voicing him in the new animated series Spider-Man: Freshman Year.
The actor also made an appearance as Daredevil in a She-Hulk: Attorney at Law trailer unveiled today in San Diego, though his casting in that show hadn’t previously been announced. That series starring Tatiana Maslany debuts on Disney+ on August 17.
Another announcement out of SDCC2022 is that Charlie will lend his voice to SPIDER-MAN: FRESHMAN YEAR as Daredevil. More below.
Charlie Cox will return as Daredevil for Spider-Man: Freshman Year animated series in 2024
The new show will follow the MCU’s Peter Parker before the events of Captain America: Civil War.
Get ready to see more of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The actor will return to the role of the Man Without Fear in Spider-Man: Freshman Year, the upcoming Marvel Studios animated series that will serve as a prequel to the MCU’s Spider-Man movies, the studio announced in a Comic-Con panel Friday.
Cox originally played Daredevil in an eponymous Netflix series — part of a slate of Defenders shows — before Disney moved to develop its own in-house series for Disney+. And he reprised his role as an out-of-costume Matt Murdock opposite Tom Holland in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Now Cox’s Daredevil will be interacting with Peter Parker before the events of Captain America: Civil War, in animated form.
Marvel is also reportedly working on a new Daredevil series, and there have been reports that Cox and his Daredevil costar Vincent D’Onofrio (who played Wilson Fisk/Kingpin) are returning for the Disney+ Echo series after D’Onofrio dropped by Hawkeye.
Freshman Year executive producer and head writer Jeff Trammell confirmed some of the other characters popping up around Peter in the show as well. They include Nico Minoru, a comic book character from The Runaways. In this context, Nico is Peter’s best friend, and as far as casting, Trammell advised the panel audience to expect the unexpected. Doctor Strange will also be a part of the series, though it’s not known if Benedict Cumberbatch will return to voice him.
Harry and Norman Osborne are also confirmed to appear, and both will be depicted as Black characters — which will presumably have implications for which actors might play these two in live-action form in the MCU movies moving forward.
Trammell further name-dropped characters like Amadeus Cho, Lonnie Lincoln, Wakandan genius Asha, Dr. Otto Octavius, Chameleon, Speed Demon, Scorpion, Butane the Pyromaniac, Tarantula, the Rhino, and Dr. Bentley Wittman. (Paul F. Tompkins, who moderated the panel, revealed that he will voice Wittman.)
Michael Mando portrayed Scorpion in a post-credits scene for Spider-Man: Homecoming, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he will voice the character in Freshman Year.
Spider-Man: Freshman Year will arrive in 2024 and it has already been greenlit for a second season, which will be called Spider-Man: Sophomore Year.

A ton of news on Charlie out of SDCC2022. The first is the official appearance of Charlie in SHE HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW teaser trailer for Disney+. In the trailer we see he’s wearing a new costume. Gotta say I’m a little nervous about this. I so loved the costume and cowl he had in the original Netflix version so much as it seemed more practical in terms of the kind of those it was. Anyway the trailer is below. I’ve also screencapped his brief scene and those are in the gallery.
