Born Again ‘Probably Won’t Be as Gory’ on Disney+, says Charlie Cox

Born Again ‘Probably Won’t Be as Gory’ on Disney+, says Charlie Cox

After Matt Murdock aka Daredevil shamed a recent episode of “She-Hulk,” Charlie Cox says his upcoming “Daredevil: Born Again” show on Disney+ “probably won’t be as gory” as it used to be when the show went on Netflix.

“My opinion is that this character works best when he’s aimed at a slightly more mature audience,” Cox said in an interview with NME. My instinct is that on Disney+ it will be dark, but it probably won’t be as gory.”

Cox will reprise the Marvel role four years after the show was canceled on Netflix in 2018. “Daredevil” ran on Netflix for three seasons and aired a total of 39 episodes. The series’ transition from Netflix to Disney+ is not that surprising, since the rights to the characters went back to Disney last February. The series went out on Netflix on February 28. “Daredevil” joined Disney+ back in March.

Titled “Daredevil: Born Again,” the new series will span 18 episodes and will debut in spring 2024 on Disney+. The series announcement came as part of Marvel’s San Diego Comic-Con panel in July, where Marvel Studio president Kevin Feige unveiled plans for Phase 5, including the series’ long-awaited return of Cox’s Matt Murdock.

The show is in pre-production and is gearing up for an 11-month shoot.

“They told me, ‘We’re going to shoot in 2023,'” says Cox. “I said, ‘Great, when?’ They said “All of 2023”. I start shooting in February and finish in December.”

“I’m fascinated to discover why they’ve chosen to do 18,” Cox added. “I imagine there’s going to be an element of it that’s like the old procedural show. Not necessarily case of the week, but something where we go deep into lawyer Matt Murdock and get to see what his life is like. If it’s done right and he really gets dirty in that world… I think there’s something pretty interesting about that, spending a lot of time in the everyday life of a superhero and really earning the moments when he sees fit.”

The Netflix/Marvel series first debuted in 2015, and were created as complementary stories told alongside the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. They mostly refer to events from 2012’s “The Avengers,” but none of the characters from the movies actually appeared in the movies until 2021’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”

“No Way Home” marked the first real crossover between the Netflix shows and the MCU, as Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock appeared as Peter Parker’s lawyer. Later in December, Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin – the main antagonist from “Daredevil” – also appeared in the MCU, as the big bad in “Hawkeye.”
