After being rumored for quite some time, the confirmation has finally arrived that a new Daredevil series is in development and heading to Disney+. Variety has just broken the news as Matt Corman and Chris Ord are attached to write as well as executive produce the series. The rumors have been making the rounds for some time, especially after Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio made their grand return in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye. The series is picking up steam.
There’s no word on which direction the story is heading and how it may pick up the story from the original Netflix series. Its third season saw Matt take down Bullseye, who pretended to be Daredevil. The return of Kingpin in Hawkeye did hint that he was rebuilding his Empire and with rumors making the rounds that the Man Without Fear might appear in She-Hulk, he’ll be out of town for a bit. So, there are many ways they could tackle this series.
Corman and Ord have made a name for themselves with their work on the USA network series Covert Affairs, which ran for five seasons. They have also acted as showrunners on series like The Enemy Within, The Brave, and CW’s Containment. There’s been a bit of hope for the series to revive and while it’s a shame that they didn’t bring on Season 3’s talented Erik Oleson, there’s always the chance he might make a return with a future season entry.
