With the actor’s strikes now over, numerous productions are gearing up to start again as soon as they can. One that is going to take some time however is Marvel Studios’ “Daredevil: Born Again”.

In October came the news that Dario Scardapane (“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” “The Punisher”) would take over as the new showrunner and writer on the series which was undergoing a complete creative overhaul despite being less than halfway through filming before the strike caused them to hit the pause button.

In addition, filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who have scored raves for their work directing the back half of the just-finished airing second season of “Loki,” would take over as directors for the remaining episodes left to film.

Marvel will keep some scenes and episodes that have already been shot, but some serialized elements will be injected with the plan reported to go in a new direction more akin to the prior Netflix series.

Speaking to The Wrap about the “Loki” finale, the pair were asked how the work on this retooled “Daredevil” season was progressing and it seems it’s still early days yet with Benson saying:

“We have the best answer for you. So you see this space we’re in right now? This is our office and we just found out we have an office about 45 minutes ago, and that’s what we’re at with Daredevil.”

Moorehead adds that they are still building the foundation for the retooling as they not only look over the footage that has already been shot but also go back to both the prior Netflix series and the comics’ source material for inspiration:

“It is day zero. We’re currently just consuming Daredevil content, not just the Netflix show but all the possible material. We’re just making our stew of information nice and thick.”

Though originally ordered for eighteen episodes, it’s not clear how many will be made in the wake of the retooling and/or when production will actually be able to begin again.

Stars Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio will reprise their Daredevil and Kingpin roles respectively in the upcoming “Echo” which will premiere on Disney+ and Hulu on January 10th.
