Charlie Cox’s Daredevil might finally get to have his skills tested against an Avenger in Daredevil: Born Again as per new theory.
Slowly, fans are getting all the answers they sought regarding Charlie Cox‘s fan-favorite character, Daredevil. After Echo confirmed that Matt Murdock was alive and up and about during the blip, there have been numerous fan theories going around regarding the potential plot of Daredevil: Born Again.
With the absence of (most of) the mighty Avengers and Spider-Man, it is highly likely that Daredevil must be busy keeping the city of New York and its network of criminals under his check while also playing Matt Murdock during the day.
And since Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye, aka MCU’s Ronin, was quite busy fighting ‘criminals’ all over the world including New York, it is potentially impossible that the two must have not come across. The fan theory sets up an epic battle between the two, making it the first time for Charlie Cox’s Daredevil to go head-to-head against an Avenger.
Both characters have previously teamed up and clashed in the comics, but their persona and capabilities in the MCU differ vastly from their comic-book counterparts. While both are certainly formidable, Daredevil is more equipped in hand-to-hand combat and has even defeated ninjas with swords in his Netflix series, which fans reckon makes him the better fighter between the two.
However, this is just a theory, and whether Daredevil: Born Again will feature this storyline is tough to know but the possibility of it happening has nonetheless left fans excited.
Charlie Cox’s Daredevil fighting Clint Barton’s Hawkeye would be an epic showdown and most fans would even go as far as making a deal with the devil to witness it in Daredevil: Born Again. But how would such a clash work or come about is fairly simple. Since we already know how Daredevil, despite his rural ways, works, he would be against how Ronin chooses to deal with criminals.
And since Ronin had also set foot in New York, since he killed Maya’s father in the city, there is every chance that Daredevil would have found out about him. Either their clash would be reminiscent of the Daredevil-Punisher combat as seen in the Netflix series, or it may come about to them teaming up to defeat a common enemy.
While many reckon that Matt Murdock would certainly win against Clint Barton in the MCU, it would really be a treat watching the crime-fighting street vigilante take on an Avenger. Although it isn’t confirmed yet, Daredevil: Born Again is expected to be released at either the end of 2024 or early 2025.
