Still hoping to get that fourth season of Daredevil? Stop dreaming, as Production Weekly, a leading source for tracking upcoming film and TV production data, has indicated that The Man Without Fear will be making a return, but in a rebooted form.

A Daredevil reboot is reportedly in the works, according to this week’s issue of Production Weekly, one that will, of course, debut exclusively for Disney’s streaming service. Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, and Chris Gary (Marvel’s Behind the Mask) are listed as producers. There is no indication of when the show will begin production or what actors will appear, but Charlie Cox will obviously return to play Matt Murdock/Daredevil, considering his stupidly short but still entertaining cameo appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which recently made its way to VOD.

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher joined the already outstanding buffet of Marvel content available on Disney+ on March 16. In conjunction with the addition of those titles, Disney+ released an update to its Parental Controls in the U.S. that will prompt all subscribers to update their settings.

Daredevil Reboot Reportedly Set to Begin Production as Disney+ MCU Series (IGN)

The latest issue of Production Weekly – which provides listings of pre-production or in-production projects for film professionals – includes a section for a show simply referred to as ‘Daredevil Reboot’.

One major question is what kind of reboot this would be, should it become a finished project. Matt Murdock’s cameo appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home didn’t give much away, but did show a character who looked and acted extremely similarly to the Daredevil we saw on Netflix.

With that in mind, this could be more of a reboot in the sense of firmly tying the show into the current Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, with the multiverse now firmly in play, it’s possible this could be a more drastic reboot, altering the character’s backstory in some way.
