It’s been a few days since Defenders came out, and many are still talking about the ending scene of it, that includes Daredevil actor Charlie Cox.
WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!
At the end of Defenders…
Matt Murdock sacrifices himself to ensure that Elektra (under the influence of The Hand) doesn’t get out with the substance that will grant her immortal life. Everyone thinks he’s dead. But…then he appears later on very much alive, and in a nunnery. What’s more, his mother, Maggie, gets namedropped. Fans were quick to point out that this reminds them of the classic Daredevil story “Born Again” in which a similar event happens. So, does this mean we’re potentially getting that story for the already confirmed Season 03 of Daredevil?
“For sure,” Cox said he said to Hollywood Reporter. “That’s such an amazing story. 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.”
However, just because they’re taking notes from Born Again, doesn’t mean it’ll be exactly like that story:
“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,” Cox said. “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.”
No word yet on when Daredevil Season 03 will arrive.
