Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has previously announced that Charlie Cox will resume his role as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, and that the character will be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but is Daredevil Season 4 really happening?
Daredevil was a three-season Marvel television series that aired on Netflix from 2015 to 2018. The Defenders, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher are just a few of the shows situated in the same TV universe as the smash series. Despite a strong reception and a proposition from the showrunner for a fourth season, the program was canceled after its third season.
The show was discontinued on Netflix four years ago, but according to speculations, Charlie Cox will reprise his role as Daredevil in a fourth season produced by Marvel Studios. After all, the series returned to Nielsen’s Top 10 charts in December 2021, following the brief presence of Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil (played by Charlie Cox), in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which prompted renewed interest in the show. Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio), Murdock’s arch-nemesis, also made an appearance in Disney+’s Hawkeye storyline that week.
Why was Daredevil canceled after Season 3 on Netflix?
Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays the show’s Kingpin, recently spoke up about why Netflix’s Daredevil was canceled after three seasons. The Daredevil star addressed why the show was canceled and how he and his fellow cast members reacted to the news on the Marvel News Desk podcast.
“I don’t believe any of us were in good shape. We were probably thinking, ‘Oh, okay, we had a hit program, and now it’s gone.’ But, at the same time, the #SaveDaredevil movements began to get traction, and the cast, including Charlie (Cox) and me, and Deborah (Ann Woll), I suppose, began to hear the reasons for what had transpired. As a result, we were able to comprehend what Marvel was doing due to the release of Disney Plus.
It made sense from a business standpoint when you’ve been in this business for a long time, as we all have. Why we wouldn’t continue that show, or the concept of how it worked and how effectively it worked, was a mystery to us.
I believe we were disappointed conceptually, but I believe we all realized what was going on and that it was unavoidable. You learn to accept things in this job because you realize it’s a business at the end of the day and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
Who else is returning for Season 4 of Daredevil, and who are the newcomers?
The cast for the potential Daredevil reboot has yet to be announced by Marvel Studios and Disney, but it has been reported that the studio is interested in bringing back some of the original cast, so look for Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk/Kingpin) to return.
Krysten Ritter will play Jessica Jones in an MCU project, according to Screengeek, although they were unable to identify what that project is.
What will the plot of Daredevil Season 4 be about?
It’s currently hard to predict what a prospective Daredevil sequel would be about. According to rumors, Marvel and Disney are interested in renewing the characters’ tales, which means they may not have shared all of the same experiences as the Netflix characters, despite their similarities.
If the characters make their first appearance in Echo, it’s likely that their own film or television project will be based on the series’ events.
However, no plot specifics have been verified, so we’ll have to wait till Marvel Studios formally announces a Daredevil project. Charlie Cox is hopeful when asked if Daredevil would function in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sandbox.
“I wouldn’t rule out the possibility that Marvel will be able to pull it off,” Cox told ComicBook. “I’m a huge fan of everything they’ve done so far, so I wouldn’t put them down.” So, if they wanted to produce a more PG Daredevil, I fully support them in finding a method to do so that feels completely in line with everything we’ve done [on the show]. And there may be a little less blood, a little less anything, but I trust them to do it.”
