Marvel Studios announced Daredevil: Born Again earlier this year and revealed that it would be an 18-episode series. Speaking to Variety, actor Charlie Cox discussed just how crazy it was hearing that.
In a new interview, Cox — who played Daredevil in the Netflix series and has also appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law — revealed that he knew Daredevil: Born Again was happening just a few days before the official reveal at San Diego Comic-Con.
“I found out about Daredevil: Born Again maybe a few days before they announced it at Comic-Con,” said Cox. “I knew there was a project in the works, but I didn’t know what it was. When I first heard from Kevin [Feige] in June 2020, the two things that he mentioned were “Spider-Man” and “She-Hulk.” He said after that we’ll have to see what comes next.”
Cox then went on to discuss the show’s 18-episode format, describing it as “mad” before noting that he knows shooting for it will be a “real slog” and challenge, but is excited to tell the stories of Daredevil again.
“It’s mad. I have no idea; your guess is as good as mine,” Cox said of working on the series and what fans might see from it. “Just in terms of shooting, physically it’s going to be a real slog and that will be a challenge in and of itself, which I’m excited about. It’s such a bold move. The character being a lawyer lends quite well to that. There’s a lot of story you can tell, just outside of the superhero element.”
Daredevil: Born Again will stream on Disney+ in the spring of 2024. Both Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio will return to the series as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and Wilson Fisk/Kingpin respectively.
