With the Daredevil [SPOILER] ending up bandaged in a coventry being nursed to health, something hit us which we missed embarrassingly from our The Defenders review.
It seems like come Daredevil 3, we may be using the comics narrative arc of Frank Miller’s “Born Again” as a guide to the coming events.
When asked about it via THR, Charlie Cox – the actor who plays Daredevil seemed pretty hopeful that the implications point to an adaptation in some respect of the classic story:
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.
Cox also continues by saying any adaptation would not be verbatim, but likely to take key elements that will be infused in a new story:
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.
In any case, I think Netflix will return to more of a winning streak come The Punisher, which is up next. So we’ll have a buffer before the Devil Of Hell’s Kitchen can return to fighting form.
