‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is causing quite a buzz in the MCU, but fans hoping for a seamless continuation from the Netflix series may be in for some disappointment. The upcoming show is set to be a soft reboot, with not all key members of Daredevil’s team making a return.

Adding to the letdown, fans will witness several episodes where Daredevil won’t be in his iconic suit. The focus of the show is shifting towards a legal drama, exploring Daredevil’s life post-hanging up his vigilante identity. This parallels Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, trying to leave his past behind.

The studio’s decision to veer away from the current show is attributed to it being deemed “a bit boring.” Instead, they are taking a fresh approach, aligning more with the faithful comic version of the character. While some previously filmed content will be retained, many elements of the story will be reconstructed from scratch.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, Benson and Moorhead are slated to direct the concluding episodes of the first season, though the exact number remains uncertain. Corman and Ord will step into the roles of executive producers. Marvel is undergoing a makeover in its television series production, adopting a more traditional approach with showrunners, pilots, and series bibles. This departure marks a shift from the previous method, which resembled the creation of movies.

Benson and Moorhead, renowned for their success with cult hits like ‘The Endless,’ ‘Spring,’ and ‘Synchronic,’ showcase versatility in their roles, handling everything from writing and acting to directing and producing. They have directed two episodes of Marvel’s ‘Moon Knight’ and two episodes of ‘Loki’ Season 2. The duo’s expertise aligns seamlessly with Marvel’s new television production strategy.

Scardapane, a former journalist turned screenwriter, earned recognition for co-writing the Mario van Peebles Western ‘Posse.’ With substantial TV experience in the thriller genre, he created and executive produced the NBC medical drama ‘Trauma.’ Additionally, he served as a consulting producer on the Peabody Award-winning F/X crime drama ‘The Bridge,’ featuring Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger.

‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is anticipated to make its debut sometime in 2024.
