Charlie Cox Talks ‘Daredevil’ Season Three; “Born Again” To Be Adapted?

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Daredevil & The Defenders star Charlie Cox and asked him about what’s in store for the character post The Defenders. If you are a reader of the comics, it’s likely that the phrase Born Again rings in your ear when thinking of Matt Murdock. Lucky for us, it seems as though season three will be adapting that storyline to some extent.

“Everyone who loves Daredevil loves Born Again. You can’t not. And if that’s the case, then the implications of that would be very exciting to me. That would be great. Having said that, I know we don’t tend to follow any story blueprints too closely, because if you do, then you become a foregone conclusion. There may be elements from Born Again, but I’m sure there will be elements that are unfamiliar and surprising and different in order for the show to be compelling to fans who know the comics very well. If we start making Born Again page-for-page, then the people who have read it and loved it — the hardcore fans — they won’t have too much drama.”

This is my favorite storyline in all of comics. It tells the story of Matt Murdock at his lowest point; Karen Page is a heroin addict after pursuing an acting career, and sells Murdock’s identity as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. Wilson Fisk systematically destroys Murdock’s life, and it’s an incredibly emotional journey to experience on paper. If they truly bring it to Netflix it has the potential to make Daredevil the greatest comic book show of all time.
