What's the big deal about the Daredevil TV programs anyway?

Bounding Into Comics says the newly produced TV adaptation of Daredevil: Born Again will ignore the previous TV takes on Stan Lee's blind crimefighter:
In a move which is bound to fray the nerves of Daredevil fans around the globe, lead actor Charlie Cox recently revealed that the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again series will jettison existing lore and material in favor of a brand new approach. This is bad news for the majority of fans who consistently rank Netflix’s Daredevil series as the best televised MCU spinoff to date.
This may pertain to the live action TV shows and movies, and the Netflix series may have come before they went really woke, but all the same, I just don't see the point of caring about these productions, and certainly not while the comics, by contrast, have been left to rot as a result of Joe Quesada/Axel Alonso's machinations. Without coherence for the comics, so long as they're still around, what's the point of these movies and TV shows?

And I'm saying that as somebody who thinks the DD lore came to an end in 1998 when the original volume was cancelled after 34 years. Yet none of the TV couch potatoes watching these shows seem to care about the zygote that was left falling into decay ever since. Nor do they care that filmmaker Kevin Smith, when he was writing the Marvel Knights volume of DD, got rid of Karen Page in his run on the 2nd comic series. No TV show or movie is going to replace the original volume of Hornhead, no matter the quality of the completed production. A real shame the fans they speak of are only a TV/movie audience. They'd do far better to read the original 1964-98 volume, and see what a real adventure fare is like.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
