‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is one of the most hyped-up projects in the MCU currently. Although fans have been hoping that the show will, in some ways, continue where Netflix’s production left off. It’s been known for quite a while now that the show will instead be a soft reboot, with not all core members of Daredevil’s team returning to the screens.
Fans were also quite disappointed to learn that the show would feature quite a number of episodes where Daredevil does not suit up at all. The show was supposed to go in the direction of legal drama, focusing on Daredevil’s life after he drops his vigilante mantle, trying to put his past behind him, just like Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin.
The announcement came that the studio is scaping the current show due to being “a bit boring” and moving in a different direction altogether, embracing the comic-faithful version of the character. Much of what was already filmed will be used, but much of the story’s elements will also be created again from scratch.
According to The Hollywood Reporter Benson and Moorhead are set to direct the final episodes of the first season, though the exact number remains uncertain. Corman and Ord will take on the roles of executive producers. Marvel is revamping its television series production, shifting to a more traditional approach with showrunners, pilots, and series bibles. This marks a departure from the previous method, where shows were created similarly to movies.
Benson and Moorhead, known for their success with cult hits like ‘The Endless,’ ‘Spring,’ and ‘Synchronic,’ are versatile in their roles, handling everything from writing and acting to directing and producing. They directed two episodes of Marvel’s ‘Moon Knight’ and two episodes of ‘Loki’ Season 2. The duo’s expertise aligns with Marvel’s new television production strategy.
Scardapane, a former journalist turned screenwriter, gained recognition for co-writing the Mario van Peebles Western Posse. He brings significant TV experience in the thriller genre, having 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 set to arrive sometime in 2024.
