A Lighter, Fun ‘Daredevil’ Series? Marvel Studios Reportedly Open to The Idea

Two weeks ago, the internet went ablaze following reports that Marvel Studios has set in motion a new Daredevil series. While the Netflix show, which is not canon to the MCU, was dark and bruting, it is unknown how the Disney+ series will take the new incarnation of the series.

While speaking with Murphy’s Multiverse, Ms. Marvel co-creator and executive producer, Sana Amanat shared his thoughts on how Marvel Studios can interpret the new series and possibly a lighter tone than the Netflix show.

“I don’t see why not! Mark Waid’s run was pretty seminal. We’ve never seen that kind of story and I love the spin on that and it was such an unexpected take on the character. In the same way, I wouldn’t be surprised if they did something like that in the MCU. Why not? We like to take risks and this is the fun part of exploring multiple stories. So maybe.”

We got our first glimpse of Charlie Cox’s return as Matt Murdock in the billion-dollar blockbuster, Spider-Man: No Way Home. While his role was very brief, it was much lighter in tone and was received very well by the fans. Cox will return as the character in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series, She-Hulk, and is expected to have a pivotal role in Echo, which is filming now, and expected to open the door for the Daredevil series.

The series will be written by Matt Corman and Chris Ord. The due are most well known for Covert Affairs as well as The Enemy Within and The Brave for NBC. It is still unknown if this show will be a continuation of the insanely popular Netflix show. Most rumors have pointed it to be a reboot rather than a direct continuation, however, neither has been confirmed yet.
