– Daredevil creator Erik Oleson is reportedly considering doing a “Born Again” arc for the show’s reboot
– Netflix’s Daredevil characters are rumored to be integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe
– Disney+ may become the future home for the rebooted Daredevil series
There’s buzz about Erik Oleson, the showrunner for Daredevil’s third season, planning a major creative reboot of the popular superhero series. According to a report, Oleson could be considering doing a “Born Again” arc for the show, which would focus on Kingpin turning Matt Murdock’s life upside down.
The news comes as Marvel prepares to bring its Netflix characters into their larger Cinematic Universe, essentially showing that the stories of Daredevil, Punisher, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage could connect to the stories of Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and the other heroes in their world. This integration could pave the way for Daredevil’s return, perhaps via Disney+.
Though no confirmation has been made regarding the reboot’s new streaming home, Disney+ appears to be the most likely candidate, given its growing roster of Marvel properties and series. This change would also bring Matt Murdock back under the Marvel umbrella, and his integration into the universe would be streamlined.
However, various undisclosed sources have stated that the move from Netflix to Disney+ could involve creative risks due to the differences in content and storytelling between the two platforms. The dark, gritty tone of Daredevil may not align with Disney+’s family-friendly content, and the creators could face challenges maintaining the identity of the Daredevil character.
