The new photos from the set of Daredevil: Born Again are causing fans to discuss their (at least apparent) time setting.
The shots show Matt Murdock ( Charlie Cox ) walking in New York City, passing a church poster dated March 15, 2020. This means that the series will take place at least partially during the Blip , or the period between between Thanos ‘ snap and Hulk ‘s snap , during which half the universe’s population was eliminated from existence.
Obviously it could be a flashback, also because it is difficult to imagine that the entire show – made up of 18 episodes – is set in that era. It is possible that something important happened in the life of Murdock and/or the Kingpin during the years of the Blip , such as the latter’s rise to power. Moreover, the shots of the last few days show that the series will have no problems going back in time, showing us Wilson Fisk ‘s childhood .
However, there is also another hypothesis: a twitter user claims that this is the true manifesto of the church, which has never changed since 2020; if so, its inclusion in the series would be purely coincidental. Sounds a little improbable, but who knows.
As we know, the focal point of the story will still be “ Daredevil vs. Kingpin “. Despite the title, the plot will deviate from the homonymous miniseries by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli . It is expected to be released on Disney+ in 2024 . You can see the photos below.
