    Daredevil actor Peter Shinkoda is alleging that a Marvel executive cut his and another actor's storylines on the show because "nobody gives a s—" about Asian people.

    The actor made the allegations at a roundtable discussion during the virtual #SaveDaredevil Con this weekend. Shinkoda said former Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb, who was an executive producer on the canceled Netflix series, told the writers' room to scrap backstories for Shinkoda's Nobu and Wai Ching Ho's Madame Gao. Shinkoda is of Japanese descent while Ho hails from Hong Kong.

    "I'm kind of reluctant to say this, but...I'm going to take this moment, but I have to because — because I just have to. I'm not into really protecting certain things anymore," Shinkoda said during the Zoom livestream. "Jeph Loeb told the writers' room not to write for Nobu and Gao — and this was reiterated many times by many of the writers and showrunners — that nobody cares about Chinese people and Asian people. There were three previous Marvel movies, a trilogy called Blade that was made where Wesley Snipes kills 200 Asians each movie. Nobody gives a s---, so don't write about Nobu and Gao, so they were forced to put their storyline down and drop it."

    For example, Shinkoda said the writers dropped plans to explore Nobu's journey to America under the guise of a medical procedure so he could help Gao and the Hand carry out their Black Sky plans. The character appeared in Daredevil's first two seasons as a member of the Hand, a super-villain organization.

    "All that backstory was dropped," the Canadian actor said. "The writers told me they regret it and they were reluctant to do it because they were stoked about including that in the storyline but they were prevented so I had to concoct this other storyline and rock that material I was given."

    This is not the first time Loeb and Iron Fist have come under fire for their representation of Asians and Asian characters. Amid criticism that the show furthers the "white savior" trope — the series stars a white guy who masters martial arts in a secret Asian city, learns mystical Asian magical, and goes off to fight crime — Loeb decided to appear at San Diego Comic-Con in a karate outfit.

    “I asked Jeph Loeb why Marvel in the 21st century was still doing ‘white guy becomes master of magic in Asia’ stories, and he looked me right in the eye and said it was because Danny Rand had to be an outsider," Katharine Trendacosta, Electronic Frontier Foundation policy analyst, tweeted at the time.

    Loeb has also served as EP on numerous Marvel shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Legion, Jessica Jones, Runaways, and more.

    EW has reached out to representatives for Shinkoda and Marvel for further comment.

    Disney+ has so much going on that this isn't likely a priority

    Netflix’s Hold On ‘Daredevil’ Rights Has Expired, So Fans Push Disney For Revival
    Paul Tassi

    Daredevil NETFLIX
    One of the strangest things that took place in the streaming world was the slow, brutal murder of the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which spanned five heroes and six shows, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Punisher and the amalgam series, The Defenders.

    The reason being was that Netflix was cutting out most shows it did not fully have the rights to, and expensive shows like Daredevil and company were prime targets, even if they were well received and often, widely watched. And Disney didn’t care to fight for them to keep going on Netflix, given that they were about to launch Disney Plus and had their own slate of MCU shows on the way.

    But now, apparently as part of the terms of the original deal, two years after the death of Daredevil, the rights now revert back to Disney and Marvel themselves from Netflix. What this means is not exactly clear, but fans believe it means that it’s now a legal option for Disney to “save” Daredevil and bring back the show for a fourth season on Disney Plus with the original cast and storylines intact. And they’ve launched a #SaveDaredevil campaign to try and make that happen.

    Not to be a raincloud here, but even if that is exactly what it could mean, legally, it is very hard see this actually coming to pass.

    The Daredevil universe ran for over ten seasons across all the shows and I think Marvel is content to say that’s probably “good enough.” They seem to be making a hard pivot to using Disney Plus as a vehicle for not just MCU-adjacent properties, but bringing in the actual movie actors for series like Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki. And then they are trying to form entirely new hit series like She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight, which are further down the road. In short, their plate is pretty full and it’s hard to see them bringing in Daredevil among all that as Netflix’s leftovers.

    There’s also the idea that Daredevil and shows like The Punisher or Jessica Jones are too R-rated for Disney Plus in the first place. That’s where I can see the idea of Disney offloading new seasons of those shows to Hulu, where more violent fare is okay, but again, even that’s a stretch.

    Daredevil is…pretty fully dismantled at this point. The actors have mostly moved on to other projects (Kingpin, Vincent D’Onofrio, may have the biggest role right now with a part in Netflix’s smash hit Ratched). Even the props and costumes from the series have gone to auction.

    I do agree that Daredevil in particular was killed too soon, especially after it’s fantastic third season which was one of the best bits of superhero TV to ever exist. But the logistics of Disney bringing it back, or any of these shows, is just not that likely no matter how many petitions fans sign. Not to say we will never see Daredevil or Punisher in the MCU again, but Disney has a whole new era planned out already that does not seem to include them, and even the era after that is likely going to focus on a reboot of the X-Men away from FOX.

    I wish Daredevil fans the best of luck with this campaign, but just…don’t get your hopes up.

    Daredevil & Spider-Man

    I know, I know - the Spiderman 3 thread I'm posting this on is the old spiderman 3, not the upcoming Spider-man 3. Still gonna use it because Daredevil.

    Daredevil in Spider-Man 3: Charlie Cox Reportedly Joins Marvel Cast
    By BRANDON DAVIS - December 9, 2020 11:16 pm EST



    It looks like the holidays came early for the Save Daredevil crowd because Charlie Cox has reportedly joined the sprawling cast of Spider-Man 3, reprising his role as Matt Murdock from the canceled Netflix series. This would be Daredevil's first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing alongside Peter Parker in the joint production with Sony Pictures. Cox last appeared as Daredevil over two years ago, and now Netflix's rights to the character have reverted back to Marvel Studios for future projects. This is only the latest surprise casting notice, as it sounds like Spider-Man 3 could explore the multiverse and include different eras in the Wall Crawler's cinematic history.

    Cox joining Spider-Man 3 comes on rumors and reports which are getting hard to keep up with at this point, with this Cox news coming from often-accurate Murphy's Multiverse. For weeks, there have been claims including the following: Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will play their respective Spider-Man characters, again. Kirsten Dunst will reprise her role as Mary Jane. Alfred Molina has been on set playing his Doc Ock character from the original trilogy. Jamie Foxx is playing Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, again. "Anything is possible," Foxx told ComicBook.com when asked if te rumors are true.

    J.K. Simmons has already reprised J. Jonah Jameson in the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home. With Benedict Cumberbatch playing his Doctor Strange character in Spider-Man 3, as well, it seems the multiverse stories are finally going to bee blown wide open leading into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

    Back in April, ComicBook.com's Adam Barnhardt talked with Cox in preparation for a Daredevil-themed Quarantine Watch Party. At that time, Cox denied any involvement with Spider-Man 3. "I hadn't heard those rumors, but it's certainly not with my Daredevil. I'm not involved in it," Cox tells us. "If that's true, it's not with me. It's with another actor." This, of course, falls in line with Hailee Steinfeld denying reports of being cast as Kate Bishop and now being spotted on the set of Hawkeye in a comics-accurate costume.

    The film and TV rights to television recently reverted from Netflix back to Marvel Studios and Disney. If these reports turn out to be true then it will be the first time Kevin Feige's team at Marvel Studios have acknowledged the existence of Marvel TV properties. Whether or not the Netflix characters or other Marvel TV titles which were overseen by Jeph Loeb will be part of the main Marvel Cinematic Universe or tied to it through multiverse stories and alternate realities, remains to be seen.

    Spider-Man 3 is slated for release in December of 2021.

    Super Bowl trailer

    Alright now - I originally added the post above was on the Spiderman-3 because I was too lazy to make a Spiderman 3: Homeworlds thread. I just did that now and am adding Daredevil for good measure, plus dropping this on the Superbowl LV thread because that one didn't go anywhere.

    Daredevil Star Ready to Reprise Role as New MCU Reboot Report Emerges
    Exclusive: Deborah Ann Woll tells us she's ready and willing to re-join the Marvel Daredevil family in the MCU.

    This article contains spoilers for SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME.

    With Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk returning to menace the MCU in Hawkeye and Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock rescuing Peter Parker in a Spider-Man: No Way Home cameo, fans are clamoring to see the rest of the Daredevil cast. No further casting has been officially announced, but actress Deborah Ann Woll has given us reason to hope that her character will soon be seen again. “I loved playing Karen Page,” Woll tells Den of Geek. “I would gladly, in a heartbeat, pick Karen back up.”

    The longest-running of the five Marvel series produced for Netflix, Daredevil distinguished itself with its violent take on the source material and complex themes. But the true secret of the series’ success was the cast, lead by the charming Cox as blind superhero Daredevil and D’Onofrio’s surprisingly vulnerable Kingpin of Crime. Playing Karen Page as a woman with a troubled past who established herself as a formidable presence, Woll gave the series its human grounding. Rising from the assistant for the fledgling law firm Murdock operated with partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) to a crusading journalist, Page gave the series a different type of hero.



    Woll looks back fondly on the experience, especially an episode that put Page in the spotlight. Directed by Alex Garcia Lopez, season three’s “Karen” flashed back to Page’s life before she escaped to New York and befriended Murdock and Foggy. As Page tried to hold together her fractious family, sacrificing her own immense talent for the good of her brother and father, Woll accentuated her character’s mix of sympathy and resentment.

    Woll even managed to redeem one of the more troubling aspects of the Karen Page character, when she took a hit of cocaine at a particularly low point. Although rightly acclaimed, Frank Miller’s run on the Daredevil comic seemed to take pleasure in bringing Page down, portraying her drug use as selfish and weak. But Woll refused to demean Page in her performance, retaining the character’s dignity, even as she made destructive mistakes.

    Speaking with Den of Geek, Woll called the episode “one of the greatest gifts of my career.” Although she admits that it was “a week of intensive work and filming,” Woll appreciated the opportunity to carry the show, if only for one chapter. “You know there’s still a director and a writer, but from that responsibility point of view I had a real impact on what that episode felt like.”

    Will Marvel take advantage of Woll’s excellent work and bring her into the MCU? It’s too early to tell, but there is reason to be optimistic. In addition to her castmates getting work, the recent addition of the Netflix series to Disney+ including – The Punisher and The Defenders, which also featured Woll – interest is at an all-time high. And if there’s any truth to the rumors that Marvel is planning to bring back the series for either a reboot or fourth season, we may be seeing Karen Page again soon.

    For her part, Woll is ready to go. “Should [Marvel Studios] call, I am here with open ears.”

    The return of DareDevil

    May 19, 2022 1:00pm PT
    ‘Daredevil’ Disney+ Series in the Works With Matt Corman, Chris Ord Set to Write (EXCLUSIVE)

    By Joe Otterson


    David Lee/Netflix

    A new “Daredevil” series is moving forward at Disney+, with Variety having exclusively learned from sources that Matt Corman and Chris Ord are attached to write and executive produce.

    Rumors have persisted for some time that a Disney+ series about the Man Without Fear was in the works, especially considering that two of the stars of the Netflix “Daredevil” series — Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio — have appeared in recent Marvel projects. Cox once again played Matt Murdock, the secret identity of Daredevil, in the film “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” while D’Onofrio reprised the role of Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, in the Disney+ series “Hawkeye.”

    It now appears that the project is picking up steam with the hiring of Corman and Ord, although Marvel has yet to announce anything regarding the show formally.

    Reps for Corman and Ord declined to comment. Marvel Studios reps do not comment on projects in development.

    Corman and Ord most famously co-created the USA Network series “Covert Affairs” starring Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham. The show aired for five seasons on the basic cabler between 2010 and 2014. They most recently worked as executive producers and co-showrunners on the NBC drama shows “The Enemy Within” and “The Brave” as well as The CW series “Containment.”

    They are repped by Verve, Entertainment 360, and Goodman Genow.

    Fans have been clamoring for more Daredevil ever since the Netflix series was canceled in 2018 after three seasons. They were in for a long wait, however, as Variety reported in 2018 that the deal with Netflix included a clause that prevented any characters from the Marvel-Netflix shows from appearing in any non-Netflix projects for two years after cancellation.

    The move came as Disney looked to bring its Marvel heroes under one umbrella, with multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe shows having since debuted on Disney+. “Moon Knight” starring Oscar Isaac was the last such show to premiere, with a trailer for the “She-Hulk” series starring Tatiana Maslany dropping earlier this week.
