A significant new revelation claims that Daredevil: Born Again is getting a thorough makeover. As part of its efforts to rearrange the show, the Marvel series is rumored to have fired its writers and directors. Marvel execs, including Kevin Feige, reportedly reviewed footage during a production pause for the WGA strike in mid-June and decided that “the show wasn’t working.” Less than half of the show’s 18-episode run had been filmed at the time, and it was positioned as a legal procedural. The tone was drastically different from the original Netflix series, which was known for its brutality and aggression, and Charlie Cox’s crimefighter only appeared in costume in episode 4, which caused some issues.
In order to concentrate on a “creative reboot” of the program, Marvel reportedly fired the remaining season’s directors as well as head writers Chris Ord and Matt Corman. The company is currently seeking to hire fresh authors and directors for the undertaking. After his tenure in the Netflix series Daredevil, Matt Murdock’s tale was set to be restarted in Daredevil: Born Again. The MCU’s first appearance of the blind hero was in Spider-Man: No Way Home, followed by a larger part in She-Hulk.
A number of the original Netflix cast members, including Vincent D’Onofrio and Jon Bernthal as Kingpin and Punisher, were also expected to appear in the Disney Plus show, which was intended to serve as a significant reintroduction to the character. Beginning in March 2023, filming continued until it was put on hold due to strikes.
