After teasing about a potential series about the “Man Without Fear”, Marvel is finally going ahead with a ‘Daredevil’ series for Disney+.
Chris Ord and Matt Corman have been roped in to write as well as executive produce the series, which will be notable as it will be the first Netflix marvel shows to get a new yet continued series.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, before establishing their superheroes currently on Disney+, Marvel’s TV arm back then, under Joseph Loeb produced many titles for Netflix as part of a wide-ranging deal. These titles included, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, The Punisher and Iron Fist. These interconnected shows then culminated into an Avengers-type event series, The Defenders.
Of the lot, ‘Daredevil’ emerged as the more popular one and lasted three seasons and the lead star of the show, Charlie Cox made many fans portraying the blind attorney Matt Murdock (Daredevil).
Fans were thrilled when he reprised his role for a cameo appearance in Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ in December 2021.
It was equally exciting when the villain from ‘Daredevil’, the Kingpin, essayed by Vincent D’Onofrio was shown as the key nemesis in the Marvel series, ‘Hawkeye’.
The Netflix titles have now been moved to Disney+ and have become more mature than the regular Marvel show. There is a lot more violence and foul language and it is a change up from the usual Disney content as well.
Writers Corman and Ord are well known for the spy series, ‘Covert Affairs’ which aired for four seasons. The two have also worked together for ‘The Brave’ and ‘The Enemy Within’.
The involvement of Ord and Corman for the ‘Daredevil’ series for Disney+ was first reported by Variety.
