After making waves as Daredevil in "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law," Charlie Cox is gearing up to headline his very own Disney+ series, "Daredevil: Born Again." In a discussion with NME, Cox divulged details on what promises to be the most ambitious Marvel project on Disney+ yet. Here's a trip down memory lane, revisiting the news that set Marvel fans abuzz.
'We're Going to Be Shooting in 2023'
In what Cox himself describes as an "11-month shoot," "Daredevil: Born Again" embarks on a journey unlike any before. "They said to me, 'We're going to be shooting in 2023'," Cox said. "I said, 'Great, when?' They said, 'All 2023'. I start shooting in February and finish in December." With 18 episodes in the making, the series started filming in March 2023.
A Daring Transformation: From Netflix's Darkness to Disney+'s Glow
"Daredevil" fans will recall the show's darker, more graphic iteration on Netflix. Cox is conscious of the shift, stating, "My opinion is this character works best when he's geared towards a slightly more mature audience." Yet, he's also open to broadening horizons, emphasizing, "Can we appeal to a slightly younger audience without losing what we've learned about what works?"
'Wait, that guy's me!': A New Look for a New Era
Talking to Variety, Cox reminisced about his golden moment discovering his new red and gold suit, saying, "Wait, that guy's me!" It's more than just an aesthetic upgrade; it's a tribute to the character's rich history. "It's such a great homage to some of the earlier Daredevil runs. I got goosebumps thinking about this moment, putting it on and the fans' reaction," he elaborated.
"Daredevil: Born Again" is set to redefine superhero storytelling on Disney+, a departure from its Netflix predecessor without losing its core. Charlie Cox's enthusiasm, coupled with a design that pays homage to the character's legacy, promises a thrilling new chapter.
For fans eager to witness Daredevil's metamorphosis, the wait continues until 2024.
