While Daredevil and the rest of the former Netflix Marvel shows will be debuting on Disney+ on March 16, it isn't a guarantee that Marvel Studios will continue those shows or remain within continuity with the rest of the MCU. Even actor Charlie Cox is doubtful that if Daredevil were to return, it would continue directly after its last season.
Ever since Cox made his return as Matthew Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the actor has had multiple ideas about the character when he appears again. One such idea would be his costume, which Cox would prefer had the classic DD emblem on its chest like the comics.
However, all this recent talk about Daredevil from Cox could point to something coming, which a new discovery could further prove.
New Evidence for Daredevil Project?
According to Murphy's Multiverse, a new production LLC (limited liability company) was formed less than two weeks ago titled "Blind Faith Productions LLC," likely to belong to Marvel Studios, which is a sly reference to Murdock's Catholicism and his literal blindness.
In response to this report from Murphy's Multiverse, Geeks Worldwide's KC Walsh seemingly confirmed that it is indeed a Daredevil project and that it would begin filming later this year. Walsh also reached out to Disney for comment, though the company denied the project's existence:
"Looks like my source said late this year, but I did ask Disney and they denied it, but it wouldn’t be the first, second or third time they denied something to me to be revealed later."
Insider @MyTimeToShineHello also corroborated the project's existence, stating that it would begin filming in late 2022 or early 2023 and see the return of the cast of the original Daredevil series:
"Yes end of this year or early next year with the original cast returning."
Season 4 or Soft Reboot?
The additional evidence from notable insiders adds credence to this production company in fact being for a Daredevil project, giving hope for Charlie Cox and co. to be born again in his own solo MCU installment.
It is only a matter of time until fans hear about crew members and other talent added to this production. Still, one big question is whether this will be a direct continuation of Netflix's Daredevil or a soft reboot of the character. After all, Charlie Cox will be interacting with the rest of the MCU, like Tatiana Maslany's She-Hulk, moving forward.
But because of Avengers: Endgame, the MCU currently takes place in 2024, and since Daredevil's last season took place in 2018, that would mean that there is a solid six-year gap that would need to be explained. The only possibility to avoid any complications is that both Murdock and Kingpin were turned to dust for five years, which would explain the loss of Fisk's criminal empire.
However, it could be simpler for everyone involved to treat the Netflix shows as semi-canon and not rigidly follow them into this new project. Everything in that show still happened, but anything can be contradicted in big and small ways moving forward to fit the story and universe.
Daredevil will begin streaming on Disney+ on March 16, 2022.
