Fans are happy to finally see quality win.


  • Daredevil is one of the characters of the Marvel Comics, later adapted on screens by Netflix and Marvel Studios.
  • The original Daredevil TV series was on air from 2015 to 2018, but in 2021 the news of the reboot appeared.
  • The new Daredevil TV series is being produced under Disney Plus, Although the initial first season has already been produced, the internal overhaul has forced Marvel Studios to start from the beginning.

While the MCU may not be having the best of times, judging by the audience reaction to its latest premiere, The Marvels, that's not stopping the studio from trying to find the right direction. This search is not only affecting the movies but also the TV series that will be released on Disney Plus.

Tired of one Marvel Studios TV show mirroring another, fans were happy to see some changes when news of the internal overhaul resulted in some major changes for the upcoming Daredevil reboot, Daredevil: Born Again.

The project is important for the studio to get right, not only because of the overwhelming love that fans have for the character, but also because of the success that the first Netflix-produced TV show had in 2015-2018. It was everything that the most recent MCU series has proven not to be: dynamic, intriguing, and just as dark as the story demands.

The news that Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page and Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson would not be returning for the reboot was already hard for fans to take, but they were patient with the production team at the time.

They're willing to be just as patient now as new directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead familiarize themselves with the source material.

Technically, the overhaul did not force everyone to start from scratch, as some of the 18 episodes that will be shot for Season 1 have already been completed. That is the other half that Moorhead and Benson are expected to pick up from. But that in itself is a challenge.

As the directors admitted in the interview with The Wrap, right now they're working on their own knowledge of Daredevil's character more than the show itself.

“It is day zero. We’re currently just consuming Daredevil content, not just the Netflix show but all the possible material. We’re just making our stew of information nice and thick,” Moorhead explained.

Despite the anticipation surrounding the upcoming show, fans seem willing to wait as long as it takes if it means quality outweighs speed. Reacting to the news on social media, potential viewers have nothing but praise for Moorhead and Benson for delving so deeply into the source material.
