‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is one of the most talked-about upcoming MCU projects, partly due to the fan-fueled hype and partly due to its turbulent production that’s been plagued with everything from SAG-AFTRA strike to creative differences in what the showrunners wanted and what the studio wanted.
This is why a few months ago, it was announced that the show would partially be scrapped, then, a few weeks ago, it was announced that a new creative team would sign their names on the upcoming MCU-based TV show. Dario Scardapane will act as a new showrunner for the series, with Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead announced as the co-directing team.
Marvel plans to retain certain scenes and episodes that are already filmed while introducing new serialized elements. Scardapane will be responsible for crafting the new episodes and scenes, seamlessly integrating the existing footage. Benson and Moorhead will take the helm as directors to conclude the first season, though the exact number of episodes remains uncertain the show was originally supposed to have 18 episodes. According to Daniel Richtman reputable source for leaks and scoops the first season of ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ will consist of 9 episodes, but if those 9 episodes manage to stir enough interest there is a potential to release part 2 of season 1. “They will see what happens.”
Richtman also mentioned some interesting details regarding Karen’s role in the show. Despite being heavily rumored to die at some point, according to Richtman, she will have a bigger role in Part 2 of Season 1 and Season 2. Fans already pointed out that it doesn’t make sense if they plan to kill her off. Remember, some reports from the set lead in the direction that two death scenes were filmed, one involving Foggy and the other involving Karen. I guess it’s not yet decided who will literally take the bullet.
‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is scheduled to release in 2025 even though the show is as of now still listed as a 2024 release on Disney’s official calendar. Have something to add? Let us know in the comments below!
