Marvel Comics is relaunching the Man Without Fear with a new ‘Daredevil’ issue 1 featuring a new creative team. During the podcast ‘This Week in Marvel,’ they spoke with writer Saladin Ahmed who is taking the reigns of the new story arc.
They said on their website that, “host Ryan “Agent M” Penagos spoke with Chip Zdarsky and Saladin Ahmed about what’s next for Matt Murdock in the Marvel Universe. Following Chip’s acclaimed multi-year run, an all-new ongoing DAREDEVIL series from Saladin Ahmed and Aaron Kuder will begin this September.”
Marvel added, “In the upcoming series, Ahmed and Kuder are ready to take Matt Murdock on a knockout of an adventure! Where does Elektra fit into all of this? What is the future of Hell’s Kitchen? Romance! Intrigue! And, of course, action! All delivered in the Mighty Marvel Manner!”
Daredevil has gotten several overhauls over the years. Often portrayed as a gritty member of the unofficial street-level team Marvel Knights, he has also acted as a super spy who jet-sets with SHIELD agents. He has frequently turned down membership in the Avengers.
Ahmed expressed his excitement for taking over Daredevil saying, “I wanted to only take this job on if I felt like I had a new, unique take on Matt and on Hell’s Kitchen. And so that’s at the center of this… him and his world, but it’s the Marvel Universe.”
He continued, “What I’ve really enjoyed in talking with other editors, other offices, is finding ways through these first couple of arcs we have planned to keep this centered on Matt, keep this centered on his people, in his world, but to bring (in a very organic and surprising fun way) some familiar Marvel figures that I think are going to blow people’s mind when they pop up on the page!”
Charlie Cox will reprise his role as Matt Murdock from Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’ in the upcoming Disney Plus series ‘Daredevil: Born Again.’ Ben Affleck previously portrayed the character in the 2003 film and the spin-off ‘Elektra.’
