Marvel’s “Daredevil” in “She-Hulk" and "Echo”

Before Season Four of the live-action "Daredevil" TV series starts shooting for Marvel Studios in 2022, under the new title “Daredevil: Born Again", starring Charlie Cox, reprising his role as blind vigilante crime-fighter 'Matt Murdock', the character also appears in the new Marvel TV series “She-Hulk", as well as the upcoming series "Echo”, wearing his early comic book yellow and red suit:

"Daredevil" was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and illustrators Bill Everett and Jack Kirby, debuting in Daredevil #1 (April 1964). 

"...growing up in the gritty crime-ridden neighborhood Hell's Kitchen in New York City, 'Matt Murdock' is blinded by a radioactive substance that falls from an out-of-control truck after he pushes a man out of the path of the oncoming vehicle. While he can no longer see, his exposure to the radioactive material heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability, and gives him a 'radar sense'. His father, boxer 'Jack Murdock' is a single man raising his now blind son, who despite his rough upbringing, unconditionally loves his son and tries to teach him to form a better life for himself. 

"His father is later killed by gangsters after refusing to throw a fight, leaving Matt an orphan. In order to protect himself, Matt began training to hone his physical abilities and superhuman senses under the tutelage of a mysterious blind stranger named 'Stick', eventually becoming a highly skilled and expert martial artist. 

"Some years later, after graduating from law school with high grades, Matt seeks out the criminal element in Hell's Kitchen and starts his crime-fighting activities. Matt targets the local gangsters who murdered his father and succeeds in bringing them to justice. 

"Donning a costumed attire, Matt took up a dual life of fighting against the criminal underworld in New York City as the masked vigilante 'Daredevil'..."

The "Daredevil" TV series was created by Drew Goddard for the streaming service Netflix, based on the Marvel Comics character', produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.

Additional cast includes Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Bob Gunton, and Ayelet Zurer joining them for season one, Jon Bernthal, Élodie Yung, Stephen Rider, Joanne Whalley, Jay Ali and Wilson Bethel.
