A few weeks after Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and his team decided to completely reconsider Disney+ has already been partially shot Daring The series, with the departure of its creative team in the process, now has a whole new team and tone. Dario Scardapane, who worked at Netflix Punisher Series and FX Bridgehas been brought on as head writer and showrunner while Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead, Who directed the episode of Moon Knight And bottle gourd Season two, has come on board to direct the remaining episodes. hollywood reporter Gave the news.

According to business, later Production had to be stopped due to strikes, Feige and his team reviewed footage that had already been shot. They then decided they wanted to make the show more raw and action-focused, like the original Netflix version. And so that’s what this team has been brought in to do.

However, in order not to completely scrap the work, many previously shot scenes and episodes will still be used. They will simply expand with additional story elements. Scardapane will handle all of that and any extras will be directed by Benson and Moorhead.

Originally, the show was promoted as an 18-episode epic, but now, it’s unclear (and possibly even unlikely) that it will be that long. Chris Ord and Matt Corman, who were running the show before the strike, will be credited as executive producers. And, of course, Charlie Cox remains as New York lawyer Matt Murdock/Daredevil, who is unable to see, but instead has all his other senses highly heightened. Vincent D’Onofrio also returns as the Kingpin.

On paper this sounds incredibly scary, but let’s step back a bit. Marvel was making something that they realized wasn’t great. It has stopped doing that and is now going in a new direction, which is more in line with this second edition of the show and the characters that audiences already love. This certainly sounds like good news to us.
