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.

  1. Hopefully if they reboot iron first they get a different lead but keep everyone else.
    I agree a different actor will help but commit to some better writing and a whole lot more with K'un-Lun and the dragons. They really kept it to a minimum before which I felt really hurt the show. They should really go back and look at the last 50 or issues John Byrne had written before that series had ended.

    Edit: Here's a great cover from that time period. It involved a storyline where Danny had used the Ironfist to contain an explosion from a bomb that was essentially a baby nuke when they were hired to take on some terrorists at an Arctic outpost. Obviously, he wasn't able to fully do that but this is the guy who tried to stop the Hulk, and failed but survived. Pretty much everything got blown up but he and Luke survived but Danny did get cancer from the radiation. It ended up being a great story that led to the end of the series and brought back some integral characters from K'un-Lun.

  2. This makes no sense. The Netflix version was pretty much a masterpiece. I'm glad they're using Cox again as he's perfect for the role and has made it his own but I just think they're going to screw up what was already done as well as it could be.
