Things were looking grim for the highly anticipated series Daredevil: Born Again near the end of 2023. However, after undergoing a creative reboot, reshooting scenes, and bringing back key characters of the Netflix show, it appears Marvel is back on track with making Matt Murdock's stand-alone project the best it can be. Fans' worries slowly started to fade away as all of this great news made its way online, and the only remaining question was: When will Marvel reveal more details about The Man Without Fear's comeback? Fortunately, the day has finally come.

On May 14, 2024, Disney held a new edition of the Upfront event in New York. In it, fans all around the world get to know more about some of the industry's most anticipated shows. So of course Charlie Cox and Vicent D'Onofrio took this opportunity to steal the stage and talk about Daredevil: Born Again.

During this part of the presentation, we finally got to learn how many episodes will the first season have, when we can expect to see it, how its new logo looks, and - most importantly - a description of the trailer shown behind closed doors. So grab your billy club and a pair of shades because it's time to break down everything we learned from Daredevil: Born Again during Disney's Upfront.

We have a new logo, and it's beautiful

When Marvel first revealed they were working on a Daredevil series, they also gave us a look at its original bland logo. To put it lightly, it was as generic as any design could get. But just in case you need a reminder, here's how it used to look:

Fortunately, that's not how the story ends. A new logo for the series was showcased during Disney's Upfront and looks much more stylized than before. Besides, his new iteration of the logo now displays an important aspect of any Matt Murdock story: his neighborhood Hell's Kitchen. Interestingly enough, the "Marvel Studios" tag was changed to "Marvel Television". Besides, the Marvel logo also had a change in its color palette to showcase the iconic red that Matt Murdock sports when wearing his super suit. You can see the new logo for Daredevil: Born Again below:

The series will have a new number of episodes

Daredevil: Born Again was originally envisioned as an 18-episode series. However, those plans were changed after the creative reboot near last year's end. As Charlie Cox revealed to TVLine, the first season was cut to half coming to a total of only 9 episodes. That comes closer to the Netflix adaptation, which had 13 episodes per season. Besides, it also seems to confirm the rumor that the 18 original episodes were divided into two batches or seasons:

It seems Marvel is attempting to focus on quality over quantity in the first season of Daredevil: Born Again, and that's perfect. After what seems like a losing streak of live-action projects, Marvel should prioritize better scripts and character development over making more content. Fortunately, it appears that will be the case for Daredevil's first stand-alone project in the MCU.

We finally have a release date

After undergoing creative reboots and delays, Daredevil: Born Again finally has a release date. Fans will get to watch Matt Murdock take over the small screen once again in March 2025. Besides, Charlie Cox - who plays the role of Matt Murdock - revealed the series wrapped production about two to three weeks ago (at the time of writing this).

Now that principal photography for the series is done, it's unlikely there will be any more delays. Besides, Disney wouldn't have given such a specific release window if they weren't confident they could make it before that deadline. So that means we're just under a year away from the release of Daredevil: Born Again (at the time of writing this) and we can't wait to see what Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk have been up to since we last saw them.

A trailer was shown, and we have a description of it

Before any Marvel project releases, fans eagerly await its first official look. Fortunately, we (kind of) got that since a new trailer for Daredevil: Born Again was shown at Disney's Upfront. Unfortunately, it was only for the eyes of people who were at the event in person. But, not everything is grim, as a description of the footage made its way online.

While not much was revealed, Matt Murdock can be seen wearing the Daredevil suit while delivering the lines "The entire system is against you... it's often Davis vs. Goliath". Besides, there are glimpses of fan-favorite characters such as Karen Page, Foggy Nelson, and the big bad himself, Wilson Fisk scattered throughout. Finally, the trailer ends with an action sequence, after which Matt is asked "What kind of a lawyer are you?" to which he responds "A really good one". Then, he puts on his iconic pair of glasses that are now shattered.

It's not much to go by, but at least we have some idea of what Marvel and Disney have in store for us when Daredevil: Born Again finally releases on Disney+.

The creative reboot made the series "closer" to its Netflix counterpart

In an interview with TVLine, Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio shared their insight on the series' creative reboot. When asked if we can expect something akin to the Netflix adaptation, Charlie responded:

"Not exactly the same but much, much closer and potentially much improved "

Besides, the English actor also talked about what it was like to have Karen Page and Foggy Nelson back on Daredevil: Born Again.

"They are such a heartbeat of the show and always have been. So to have them involved... it meant the world to us and I think it elevates the show tremendously."

Charlie Cox

Finally, Vincent revealed the last few months of reshoots were "intense", but they allowed for a series with well-written and "beautifully" directed episodes:

"I want to say so much about both the last show and this show and the change that happened. In the end, the last few months of work that we did was quite intense and written beautifully and directed beautifully. (...) I mean, personally, it is as intense as we have ever been."

Vincent D'Onofrio

Everything seems to indicate Marvel is doing everything in their power to ensure Daredevil: Born Again is the best it can be, which is more than great. Let's hope the series can reach the heights set by its Netflix counterpart. While that's not an easy feat, it could put the MCU back on the map after what feels like a long hiatus.

Daredevil: Born Again will release on March 2025 on Disney+.
