Comic-Con 2022: Deadline’s Full Coverage
A new series centered on Cox’s character had been awaited by die-hard fans since Netflix’s Daredevil was canceled in 2018 after three seasons. Rumors about a Daredevil series revival started following the appearance of Daredevil (Cox) in Spider-Man: No Way Home and main antagonist Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) in the Disney+ series Hawkeye.
Talk about potential new installment ramped up when the Marvel Netflix series, including Daredevil and team-up limited series The Defenders, moved to Disney+ this past spring after the rights to the titles reverted to Disney. It was revealed in May that a new Daredevil series was in the works at Disney+ with Covert Affairs creators Matt Corman and Chris Ord attached to write and executive produce.
Daredevil is an attorney by day and crimefighter by night otherwise known by the name Matt Murdock. Cox will additionally reprise the role as part of the cast of Disney+’s upcoming series Echoslated for next year, while voicing him in the new animated series Spider-Man: Freshman Year.
The actor also made an appearance as Daredevil in a She-Hulk: Attorney at Law trailer unveiled today in San Diego, although his casting in that show hadn’t previously been announced. That series starring Tatiana Maslany debuts on Disney+ on August 17.
