New Daredevil Series 'In The Works' At Disney

New Daredevil Series 'In The Works' At Disney

It appears there's a new Daredevil series in the works over at Disney.

Variety reports Matt Corman and Chris Ord have signed on to resurrect this fan favourite TV show after it was cancelled in 2018.

The cancellation was devastating for people all across the world and there have been calls ever since for it to be revived.

Speculation about a possible reboot has been circulating for a while and Matt Murdock's appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Charlie Cox certainly helped fuel the rumours.

This update seemingly confirms what was leaked late last year.

David Hayter, who has worked with the likes of X-Men and Watchmen, explained during a UK convention that work is very much underway on reviving the show.

He told Small Screen at MCM Comic Con: "They're doing a reboot of Daredevil, and Daredevil was always a very important character to me.

"I loved the first way they did it, but there's certain things that I would want to adapt from the Frank Miller run on Daredevil that really meant a lot to me. That's really the one."

Many people have speculated whether Disney and Marvel would go in a different direction with the rebooted series, or keep all the same actors and simply resume where they finished.

Thankfully, Marvel GEO Kevin Feige said Cox would be the actor they would pick to play Charlie Cox if there was ever a reboot of the show.

He told CinemaBlend: "If you were to see Daredevil in upcoming things, Charlie Cox, yes, would be the actor playing Daredevil.

"Where we see that, how we see that, when we see that, remains to be seen."

The British actor said he would only come back to the role if they had something special planned.

He was asked during an interview with The Pop Culture Spotlight on SiriusXM whether he would want to come back for a reboot and he appeared to be a bit apprehensive about the idea.

"You've got to be careful what you wish for. You come back and it's not as good or it doesn't quite work or... too much time has passed, it doesn't quite come together in the same way," he said.

"If there was an opportunity for me to come back as Daredevil, whatever that would look like, I imagine it would be a reimagining of the character and the show."

We'll have to sit tight until an official comment comes from Disney or Marvel, but fans will no doubt be very excited at this development.
