Although Ikuzo questioned the possibility of reversing this decision, Brewster believes it is already too late, as Marvel Studios has informed the original series’ crew members about their intent to create a distinct visual and narrative style for Born Again.

Appreciation for Original Series:

Brewster expressed his admiration for the Marvel Netflix Daredevil, considering it a masterpiece and Marvel’s best streaming show to date. He commended the impeccable casting choices, showrunners, and dedication of everyone involved in bringing the show to life.

Marvel’s Crew Replacement Justification on Daredevil:

Marvel Studios replaced Brewster and the Netflix crew with Justin Eaten, who has experience as a stunt double for various Marvel characters.

Looking Ahead:

Daredevil: Born Again is currently scheduled to premiere on Disney+ in Spring 2024, although production has been halted due to the ongoing Writer’s Guild of America strike.
