Matt Murdock’s return to the Marvel Cineamtic Universe following his debut as Parker’s lawyer in Spider-Man: No Way Home seems to be one of the hottest topics in the future of the franchise. Looking forward to seeing him appear in She-Hulk: Attorney at Lawthe curiosity of the fans is already directed to Daredevil: Born Again, the series that I will deal with to best tell the life of Murdock in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. During the D23 Expo event, in which the official logo of the series dedicated to the Cornetto was presented, it was discovered how the interpreter of Daredevil, Charlie Cox, hopes that the legal part of Daredevil: Born Again.
In Daredevil: Born AgainCharlie Cox wants to enhance the legal side of the Guardian Devil
Let’s forget the series of the same name released on Netflix and now available on Disney +, considered as Born Again will be a real story of the origins for the Devil Keeper of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first appearances of the character take place by pointing to the figure of the lawyer of Matt Murdock, who after having defended Peter Parker in the courtroom is now preparing to appear in a series with a strong legal spirit, such as She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. It is therefore understandable what is reported by The Hollywood Reportermeaning that Charlie Cox hopes the legal side of Daredevil: Born Again.
We know it’s going to be eighteen episodes, and for me it’s a really explosive thing. What I hope to achieve is that this allows us to dedicate space to characterization of the characters and to spend a lot of time describing Matt Murdock’s life as a lawyer.
Not only does the breezy duration of 18 episodes surpass any previous series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it also lends itself to allowing you to manage the time needed to define the personalities of the different characters with greater tranquility.
However, it is undeniable that the legal drama component is one of the central elements of Matt Murdock’s life, who in the comics sector has always been fundamental in animating his adventures, as in the recent Devil’s Reign maxi-event. A specific trait of the character that was deliberately enhanced by Cox:
You know, being able to live all the heroic part of Daredevil, but also highlight his daily life and base the series on his profession as a lawyer, could be really interesting.
This legal dram approach was also at the heart of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, but inspired by Dan Slott’s run, the Jennifer Walters series showed a deeply ironic and funny note, while the typical tone of the Daredevil stories could turn out to be perfect for offering a more rigid view of forensic life.
Daredevil: Born Again is expected on Disney Plus in the spring of 2024
