>Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) would originally abandon the identity of Daredevil after failing to prevent the death of his best friend Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and start a new law firm called "Murdock & Associates” to focus on helping people as a lawyer. Meanwhile, Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is elected Mayor of New York City on an anti-vigilante platform. Following the project's creative reboot, Foggy will no longer die and he and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) will return, though Matt and Foggy will no longer be law partners, and Matt will be active as Daredevil from the start.
>The series’ first story arc follows Matt defending vigilante Hector Ayala / White Tiger after he stops a mugging, which was actually a setup by corrupt cops who were trying to eliminate an informant before he could get to trial. One of the corrupt cops accidentally dies in the process, and Hector is labeled a cop killer. Matt would originally not suit up as Daredevil for this arc, which would focus entirely on him defending Hector in the courtroom, but this has been changed following the project's creative reboot.
>The series’ second story arc follows Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) targeting corrupt cops misusing his symbol while Matt tries to stop him. The events of THE PUNISHER series will now be directly referenced, as will Matt and Frank's past encounters.
>The series’ third story arc would follow Daredevil joining forces with vigilante Blindspot to save Chinatown from crime lord Tenfingers, but appears to have been scrapped.
>The main villain of Season 1A is Muse, a serial killer who makes art out of his victims’ blood.
