According to a new source, the upcoming Daredevil series on Disney+ will be a continuation of the present Netflix show. Daredevil premiered on Netflix in April 2015, introducing Marvel fans to the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, as blind lawyer Matt Murdock utilised his extraordinary senses to sweep out the crooks lurking in the nighttime New York streets who eluded the more larger-than-life Avengers.
The series established its own smaller interconnected universe, which tackled darker, more adult subjects that the main MCU would not address. Despite the fact that Marvel and Netflix’s collaboration came to an end in 2019, it has been reported that a new Daredevil series is in the works for Disney+, following appearances by many of Daredevil’s cast members in recent MCU projects, as well as the addition of all six series of Marvel’s Netflix series to the service.
THR’s sources identify Disney+’s Daredevil as “the first of the Netflix Marvel shows to get a new but continued series,” but the initial revelation did not specify whether the new series would be a fresh reboot or a continuation of what had come before. This would seem to imply that not only should fans expect Cox and D’Onofrio to reprise their roles, but that the show may also aim to complete the many story strands left unfinished at the end of Daredevil season 3.
This is undoubtedly the best case scenario for Daredevil fans, who may also be rewarded to confirmations of other returning characters like Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page and Elden Henson’s Foggy Nelson. Wilson Bethal’s Bullseye, is another character which fans will be eager to learn more about. Many threads about his transition into the renowned comic villain remained unanswered in the Daredevil season 3 finale, and they are definitely some of the most pressing concerns from the original series.
The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer-turned-vigilante who was conceived by Drew Goddard. Daredevil was terminated in November 2018 after three seasons, following by the cancellation of all other Marvel shows on Netflix. While fans were upset and hoped for a series revival on another platform, rumours indicate that Marvel was prohibited from using any of the characters for at least two years following the cancellation due to the initial agreements they had with Netflix.
