‘Daredevil: Born Again’ has become a highly discussed project within the MCU, generating buzz fueled by both eager fans and the tumultuous journey of its production. From labor strikes to creative clashes between showrunners and studio, the series has faced its share of challenges.
Recently, news broke that parts of the show would be reworked, followed by an announcement of a fresh creative team stepping in. Dario Scardapane is set to lead as the new showrunner, joined by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead as co-directors.
Marvel intends to blend existing footage with new narrative arcs under Scardapane’s guidance, while Benson and Moorhead will wrap up the first season. Though the episode count is uncertain—originally slated for 18—insider information from Daniel Richtman suggests the inaugural season will consist of 9 episodes. Depending on audience reception, there’s potential for a second part to unfold. “They will see what happens.”
Richtman also divulged intriguing insights into Karen’s character arc in the series. Despite persistent speculation of her demise, Richtman suggests that she will play a significant role in Part 2 of Season 1 and Season 2. Fans have already raised questions about the logic behind her potential demise. Reports from the set hint at the filming of two death scenes—one involving Foggy and the other Karen—leaving uncertainty about who will ultimately face mortality.
‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is slated for release in 2025, although it currently remains listed as a 2024 release on Disney’s official calendar. Have any thoughts to share? Feel free to let us know in the comments below!
