The Marvel debuts on Netflix weren’t without a few hiccups along the way. For example, the Daredevil landing page originally had a picture of Bullseye up instead of the Man Without Fear. Disney + did eventually update the Daredevil landing page to fix the mistake. Thankfully, Disney + did leave the mature content of Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Defenders, and Jessica Jones with the addition of a new content rating.
Speaking of Daredevil, there is a new report that a reboot series could be on the way. Earlier this month, Murphy’s Multiverse unveiled evidence of a new business entity that could be serving as the production company behind Marvel Studios’ Daredevil reboot. The scoopers revealed Blind Faith Productions LLC was a new Disney-owned entity, even suggesting it would operate a series for the Man Without Fear. Now, a new “Daredevil Reboot” listing appeared in the latest issue of Production Weekly, stating that Kevin Feige and Chris Gray are the show’s producers. Filming is reported to start filming by the end of the year.
Of course, Marvel Studios is remaining radio silent on the matter, leaving fans to speculate on when they can see the street-level heroes again. Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio have reprised their roles as Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk in Spider-Man: No Way Home spirit Hawkeyerespectively, so there’s still hope for the other Defenders to return in the future.
