‘Daredevil: Born Again’ Is Being Compared to ‘X-Men ’97’ by Marvel Exec: “Matt and Wilson have changed”


‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is one of the most exciting upcoming projects in the MCU. The show was initially designed as a complete reboot of Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’ show which ran for three seasons, but after unsatisfactory first reactions to the material, the first version of the show was almost completely scrapped.

Now ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is continuing in a new direction, it’s going to be more like a continuation of Netflix’s series with much of the cast returning. Foggy and Karen are also going to be present after being written out from the original version.

On a recent episode of The Official Marvel Podcast, Brad Winderbaum, Marvel Studios exec discussed ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ and its revival within Marvel Studios. He described the project as literally being “Born Again’ for the studio.

Brad likened the show to the incredibly successful reboot of the old animated show ‘X-Men ’97’ and teased that the stakes have never been higher for Cox’s Matt Murdock and D’Onofrio’s Kingpin.

Daredevil is incredible. It’s similar in some ways to X-Men ’97 because it’s reviving something that the fans love, but it’s taking it in a new direction.

Much of the focus of the upcoming project will be on political “fights,” as we know from the ‘Echo’ post-credit scene Fisk will enter the mayoral race for mayor of New York and some leaks and costumes from the set suggest that he will form and finance anti-vigilante task force that will go after street-level superheroes.

Matt and Wilson have changed, and their characters are going to collide in ways we’ve never seen before, it’s no longer enough to try to murder each other. There’s a whole game of politics at play.

‘Daredevil: Born Again’ will be released in March/Spring 2025 and the show will be 9 episodes long. It will be integrated into Phase Five of the MCU. According to recent rumors, part 2 of the show is set to begin filming in the fall of 2024.
