It’s been over a year since we first reported that Charlie Cox would be returning as Matt Murdoch/Daredevil in the then-untitled third MCU Spider-Man feature film. Following his cameo in the record-breaking Spidey threequel, as well as Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Kingpin appearing in Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye, it felt like a matter of time until news would surface hinting at a Daredevil-centered project set well within the boundaries of the MCU.
[…] those of you hoping to see Daredevil step into the spotlight in his own solo project will no doubt be very happy with this news. According to Murphy’s Multiverse, Marvel Studios has opened a new production company called “Blind Faith Productions LLC,” which certainly sounds like a not-too-subtle reference to ‘ol Hornhead.
This report has been backed up by a couple of reliable scoopers who have also strongly suggested that a Daredevil movie or TV series is in the works. Bringing the hero back to the big screen would be amazing, though there are many fans who would love to see anything resembling a “season 4” after the character’s Netflix adventures reached such an abrupt end a few years ago.
With Kevin Feige calling the shots, we have a huge amount of faith that this character – and the world he inhabits – will be done justice. There was a lot to love about the Netflix series, but it also made some huge blunders, wasting The Hand and dropping the ball on Elektra in a major way.
That production LLC formed a little less than two weeks and its title, “Blind Faith Productions LLC”, feels like a perfectly condensed summary of two of Murdoch’s most defining characteristics, both physical and spiritual. This doesn’t guarantee that a new Daredevil project will debut any time soon, but as for the character of Matt Murdock, and quoting Charlie Cox himself, “expect to see him everywhere” while we wait for him to lead his own project.
Following the take on the character seen in the Netflix shows, there is still a lot to get to in terms of Daredevil storylines. The biggest selling point might be getting to witness his interactions with so many of the characters that have now become available to explore, from Echo to She-Hulk just to name a couple.
