In the first of what is likely to be many delays in the coming months, it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer before we see Daredevil rejoin the MCU in his own series. Though Marvel has yet to officially announce a delay, a filing with the US Copyright Office has revealed that Daredevil: Born Again won’t drop until 2025.
Despite short roles in She-Hulk and Spider-Man: No Way Home, we’ve had to wait a long time to see Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in his own series. The Netflix show was canceled in 2018 following the launch of Disney+, leaving the character’s future in the MCU up in the air. Fans wouldn’t see Cox in the role again until 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, the same week that Vincent D’Onofrio returned as Wilson Fisk in the Hawkeye series. While this confirmed that the characters still operated in the MCU, it wasn’t until later in San Diego Comic-Con 2022 that Marvel announced they would be returning in the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again series.
Originally slated for an early 2024 release, the new series began filming in March 2023, only to be shut down by the joint Writers and Actors’ strikes that shut down most of Hollywood over the summer. Recently, it has disappeared from the upcoming slate of Marvel projects, presumably while the studio decided on a new release date. Perhaps as a precursor to an official announcement, a copyright for “Daredevil: Born Again Episode 101” that Marvel filed in September 2023 revealed that the first episode now had a Projected Date of Publication of January 2025. That was before, however, reports that Marvel Studios has released the writing team and are retooling the show.
Daredevil: Born Again will see Cox and D’Onofrio reprise their roles as well as Jon Bernthal returning as Frank Castle. Joining them will be Margarita Levieva, Michael Gandolfini, and Sandrine Holt.
The Hollywood strikes have had a big impact on upcoming TV and movie release schedules, with several Marvel projects shifting dates and even at risk of being canceled.
