The rumors are true, a new Daredevil series is indeed coming to Disney+, and according to Variety, Matt Corman and Chris Ord are attached to write and executive produce.
Corman and Ord co-created the USA Network series Cover Affairs which starred starring Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham. The show aired for five seasons on the basic cabler between 2010 and 2014. They most recently worked as executive producers and co-showrunners on the NBC drama shows The Enemy Within and The Brave as well as The CW series Containment.
Rumors have run amok about the return of Daredevil ever since Charlie Cox played Matt Murdock, the secret identity of Daredevil, in the film Spider-Man: No Way Home. When Vincent D’Onofrio reprised the role of Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, in the Disney+ series “Hawkeye (which ended in a cliffhanger for Fisk), the writing was on the wall even though the character appeared to meet his end at the hand of Maya “Echo” Lopez (Alaqua Cox), comic book readers know Kingpin survived his violent encounter.
The MCU has already established Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin exist in their universe after the two debuted on Netflix’s street-level Marvel Universe.
While Marvel has not made an officially announcement, June is the start of the Television Critics Association where Disney will most likely announce the series during their presentation.
