Marvel Resurrects Canceled Netflix Series Charlie Cox’s Daredevil for Disney+

Fans have been clamoring for a revival ever since the beloved series was brutally canceled in 2019.

Never discount the devil.

Marvel is resurrecting one of its most popular characters with news Daredevil should return as a series on the Disney+ streaming platform.

While not officially confirmed by Marvel, Diversity informed screenwriters Matt Korman and Chris Ord were hired as showrunners.

Hope for another season Daredevil intensified after actor Charlie Cox, who played Daredevil/Matt Murdoch in the Netflix series, reprized the role in Spiderman: No Way Homeand Vincent D’Onofrio returned as the villainous Kingpin for two episodes Hawkeye.

Cox teased the character’s future Hollywood Reporter after it Spiderman appearance: “This is an important moment, not only for me, but also for the character. I felt a real sense of responsibility. If this scene works, if it’s cool, if it feels right, then the sky is the limit it can go.”

Daredevil was part of the stable Marvel TV show on Netflix in a deal that also included the titles Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, iron fist, the Punisher and Defenders. A total of 13 television seasons were produced as part of the deal from 2015 to 2019.

All six shows recently moved from Netflix to Disney+, further fueling rumors that Marvel Studios was looking to revive one or more of the properties. The clause in the contract that banned Disney and Marvel from using any of the characters from one of those shows for two years has expired.

The six Netflix Marvel shows have been met with varying levels of enthusiasm. Daredevil was a fan favorite along with the Punisher Bye Jessica Jones was most consistently received by critics, especially for the show’s handling of sexual assault and PTSD.

Daredevil ran for three seasons and starred Cox, D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Rosario Dawson and Toby Leonard Moore.

Daredevil and his cohort were created when Marvel Studios was split into separate film and television companies. The TV portion was curated by executive director Jeph Loeb and also included shows such as Shield agents, Runaways and Agent Carter.
