Marvel hasn’t announced anything about the new series yet.

Fans have speculated that the show will star as Charlie Cox, 39, and Vincent D’Onofrio, 62 – from the Netflix Daredevil series – have appeared in recent Marvel projects.

Cox donned the crimson suit again while playing Matt Murdock, Daredevil’s secret identity, in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Meanwhile, D’Onofrio reprized his role as Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, one of Daredevil’s main villains in the comics, in the Disney Plus series Hawkeye.

However, in 2018, Variety reported that the deal with Netflix included a clause that “prevented characters from the Marvel Netflix shows from appearing in non-Netflix projects for two years after their cancellation.”

As early as mid-March, all Netflix Marvel live-action series – including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – moved to Disney Plus.

Marvel’s Daredevil follows Matt Murdock, a blind New York attorney who turns into a vigilante at night, using his heightened senses to fight crime and protect his Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood.

The show’s first season was released on April 10, 2015 on Netflix. The second followed on March 18, 2016 and the third on October 19, 2018.

Ben Affleck was first to play the blind lawyer by day and superhero by night in the 2003 film of the same name, starring Jennifer Garner as Elektra Nachios.
