In a surprising twist, Marvel orchestrates a creative shakeup for Daredevil show: It bids a hearty goodbye to its original writers and directors due to a mismatch in tonality.

Marvel Gives Daredevil Writers the Boot Amidst Redo!

If you've ever watched an episode of Daredevil and thought, "Hmm, this could use a complete do-over," your wish just might be Marvel's command. Our beloved, crime-fighting superhero show has completely flipped its wig, resulting in a dramatic farewell to its writers and directors. The reason? Well, according to our reliable chums at The Hollywood Reporter, Daredevil was tripping over his cape rather than striking fear into the hearts of villains and it seems the Marvel bigwigs agreed. The verdict? "The show wasn't working". Ouch.

At the half-time bell toll, only part of the 18 episodes were out, and apparently, the Daredevil we knew and loved got lost in the legal shuffle. With our hero only donning his iconic get-up in the fourth episode, it seems the creative team was walking a thin tightrope between their daytime jobs as lawyers and their moonlighting gig as superheroes.

Unlike our favorite Netflix original, this iteration was putting viewers to sleep with its inexplicably slow pace and lack of raw grit and violence—part of what made Daredevil the perfect binge-worthy treat for action enthusiasts. And so, Marvel swung the axe, letting go of the head writers Chris Ord and Matt Corman and bidding adieu to the remaining season's directors in one fell swoop. Talk about a plot twist.

The now-abandoned Daredevil series was set to be a reboot to the original tale of Matt Murdock, our favorite blind superhero, who made his MCU debut in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The show was supposed to be a grand re-entry for the character into the Marvel Universe with even a couple of favs from the original Netflix cast planned to make an appearance. But, as the saying goes, the best-laid plans often go awry.

In the wake of the melee, the Daredevil show has been reduced to a nub and its future is now as clear as mud. All was not lost however, as it still had two seasons to make a superhero landing as part of Marvel Phase 5.

In the aftermath of this creative cleansing, Marvel is now on a relentless quest for new writers and directors to give our beloved Daredevil the kick in the guts he needs. We'll have to kick back and see how this new-style Daredevil turns out after this unscheduled manicure of the show.
