News that Charlie Cox will return as Daredevil via his own Disney Plus series initially delighted fans, but that excitement is starting to sour.
Netflix’s take on the Man Without Fear was a huge hit for the streamer, despite diminishing interest as the series went on. Early seasons of Daredevil were near-universally popular and created a die-hard group of fans for Netflix’s version of the story. It’s set to return, with Cox at the helm, via Disney Plus’ Daredevil: Born Again, but not everyone has faith in Disney’s vision for the show.
Thus far, fans still know very little about Born Again, but Daredevil’s early appearances in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law — paired with hints from Disney about how it intends to approach the show — give fans a bare idea of what to expect. Daredevil’s appearances in She-Hulk were largely comedic, and Disney promises a far more lighthearted show than Netflix offered up, which has left fans wondering how Matt Murdock’s legal side will fare on its new streaming home.
The courtroom drama half of Netflix’s Daredevil was by far one of the show’s most popular aspects, particularly in its early seasons. People loved the balance of intriguing legal arguments alongside well-choreographed fight scenes and they’re very much hoping to see both elements return in Born Again.
An underrated scene from early in the Netflix series has fans once again pondering Daredevil’s future, and fervently hoping that Disney Plus chooses to maintain a focus on the legal aspects of Matt Murdock’s crimefighting career. Shared to Reddit’s Marvel Studios sub by user JamJamGaGa, the stellar scene has longtime fans ardently hoping that “Daredevil: Born Again has courtroom seqences [sic] that are as well written as this.”
