As of writing, Daredevil: Born Again has paused filming due to the ongoing WGA/SAG-AFTRA strikes, with these new rumoured details coming from development pre-strike.
The series is expected to begin filming again once the ongoing strikes manage to come to a reasonable resolution, however, it’s currently unclear as to when that will be.
That being said, let’s get into these new rumoured details on Daredevil: Born Again: who will Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock be up against in the upcoming reboot?
Daredevil: Born Again To Be Split Into 2 Parts
According to the well-known industry tipster Daniel RPK, Marvel Studios’ 18-episode-season Daredevil: Born Again will be split and released in two parts for Disney+.
This wouldn’t be the first time that the Charlie Cox-led Daredevil series has been split into two parts as Netflix did the same back for the second season of Daredevil.
Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce this, however, it may be safe to assume for the whopping 18-episode season to be split into at least two parts.
If true then it will also be safe to expect the second part of Daredevil: Born Again to be released at a later date anywhere from weeks to months from the first part’s release.
Marvel’s Muse Is Coming To The MCU
Additionally, also from the insider Daniel RPK, the villain for the first part of Daredevil: Born Again has also reportedly been revealed to be Muse.
Marvel’s Muse has been rumoured in the past by various online rumour spreaders, as to who is playing the rumoured character has not yet been revealed.
Including Muse may by itself guarantee that the upcoming Disney+ Daredevil reboot will indeed be intended to maintain the same tone as its predecessor.
Despite Muse not being a major villain to Matt Murdock’s Darevil in the comics, Muse is still an R-rated level serial killer villain perfect for a darker-toned MCU series.
Aiming For TV-MA Rating
One question on a lot of MCU fans’ minds is ‘What rating will Daredevil: Born Again have?’ – something that has reportedly been answered once and for all.
Just as theorised above, insider Daniel RPK also reports that Marvel Studios and Disney+ will be aiming for a “TV-MA” rating which is similar to an 18+ in the UK.
Stars who are set to reprise their roles such as Vincent D’Onofrio and Jon Bernthal have been vocal in the past that Daredevil shouldn’t be toned down for younger audiences.
Something that the millions of Daredevil fans have also been extremely vocal about since learning that Marvel Studios were bringing the character into the MCU.
Daredevil: Born Again is scheduled to release on Disney+ during Spring 2024.
