News culture Is it a scam? The creator of Daredevil on Disney+ forced to explain the continuation of the series

Daredevil: Born Again is the next Disney+ series about the famous eponymous character. Its creator considers this sequel to be a scam coming from the big-eared firm.
The next Dardevil series is a scam? This is what Steven DeKnight, the showrunner of the first season of the original TV show, says. To provide context, the first project on the character belonged to Netflix, but the company canceled it after three seasons. The rights were therefore bought by Disney+ which decided, instead of producing a fourth part, to make a whole new series, calling it Born Again. Charlie Cox, the interpreter of the superhero, had stated the reason for this decision to the media NME. For him, “it has to be a reincarnation, it has to be different, otherwise why do it?”. However, for Steven DeKnight, this is just a scam from the streaming giant. In several tweets, he explains his vision of things in response to certain users:
He does. It’s an old Disney scam where they slightly rename a series to reset contract terms back to first season. Needs to be addressed by all the guilds/unions and crushed! https://t.co/Ttj4A3tnE4

After the ComicNerd media picked up these comments in another tweet, Steven DeKnight detailed his words. He says it “is a tactic of slightly changing the name of a series to avoid paying the original creators or increasing the team’s salary”. In his message, he continues by mentioning his support for Daredevil: Born Again which will be released on Disney+ in 2024.
