Disney May Remake Netflix’s Daredevil Events In Reboot, Says Charlie Cox

As exciting as the return of Titans Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio has been in the MCU, it has brought with it an extremely controversial question: is it Reckless Canyon? Some think that it obviously is, given that the same actors play the characters. Others, however, are not quite sure; to many, it seems like Marvel Studios is either going the route of a soft reboot or selectively using whatever canon it wants.

When talking about coming back as Kingpin in Hawk EyeD’Onofrio said he aimed “do the same” with his character as he did in Reckless. However, she admitted that there were some “points that [couldn’t] be connected” when it came to Fisk’s history with Netflix.

Earlier, while talking about born againstar Charlie Cox mentioned how he feels like he’s a “brand new deal.” It’s a sentiment that certainly makes it seem like he thinks he’s different from his previous series.

Well, now some of his words from D23 have been uncovered, and they add a little more fuel to the fire of that feeling.

Netflix Canon can be remade


In a recently published interview with D23 Expo’s Entertainment Tonight, Reckless Y She-Hulk: Lawyer star Charlie Cox commented on his upcoming Disney+ series Daredevil: Born Again. In doing so, he may have even confirmed that he considers his old Netflix show to be something else entirely.

So what does Charlie Cox know about his upcoming 2024 Disney+ series? Well, according to the star, “[he] knows what everyone knows” and the “[hasn’t read anything:”

“I know what everyone else knows, which is a great feeling because I can’t spoil anything. I met some of the writers for the first time last night. I haven’t read anything. I’m psyched to discover how they’re gonna—what stories they’re gonna tell over that long period of time [between Daredevil and Daredevil: Born Again]. Tonally how is it going to be. How is it different, how is it the same? You know, [Marvel Studios President] Kevin [Feige] He’s been very clear about it being Season 1, not Season 4. So, it’s a whole new deal.”

Cox continued, pointing out how born again it presents the opportunity to go back and retell some of the important stories in Matt Murdock’s life, even if they’ve already been told, something that happens all the time in comics.

The star specifically pointed out how they might be able to “tells the whole origin story again:”

“And, in a way, the cool thing about that is that we can potentially tell some of the stories over and over again the same way they do in the comics, you know. Every once in a while, they start back at the beginning. of Murdock’s journey as a little kid and they retell the whole origin story. So maybe we’ll get to do that, I don’t know.”

But how does the star feel about the intense praise and reaction to her hero’s return? For he is horrified by all this adulation and “gets a little embarrassing:”

“You know, I’m horrified by any kind of flattery. It gets a little embarrassing. So when you get a reaction like that, it’s like, it feels surreal. Like, you can’t imagine it. So, yeah, I feel really emotional.”

As for his second chance to play Matt Murdock, Cox simply stated that “Feels like a dream:”

“It’s a strange experience to have played this character, to have the experiences that I’ve had with this character and the journey that we’ve taken with the show. For that to be over and over, and in my mind and heart, it’s over, and then being pulled back all of a sudden, and all of a sudden we start over, and it’s all happening again. It feels like a dream.”

No, there is no definitive answer from Canon yet

It cannot be denied that Cox’s words certainly lean towards Daredevil: Born Again being a soft reset, if not direct. But, as the actor made clear, “[he doesn’t] to know,” Y “[he] haven’t read anything even.

With that in mind, sadly there remains no clear or concise answer as to whether Netflix Reckless it will remain completely canon until its resurgence in the MCU.

Fans may have to wait until Daredevil: Born Again before there are hard facts to fall back on. In the meantime, fans can enjoy just under two more years of orderly and polite discussion of the canonicity of Charlie Cox’s previous adventures.

Perhaps his next appearance in Echo will surprise the world with some answers.

Echo is slated to hit Disney+ next summer, while Daredevil: Born Again won’t arrive until spring 2024, where it will debut a whopping 18 episodes.
