No project generated more buzz during SDCC ’22 than Daredevil: Born Again. Originally intended to stream on Disney Plus in Spring 2024, production on the series got underway in early 2023 but was paused in June amid the WGA strike. Marvel Studios used that break to evaluate what they had filmed for the series so far and decided the series needed a creative restructuring. By October 2023, Dario Scardapane (The Punisher) had been brought in as showrunner and the directing duo of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Moon Knight, Loki Season 2) were handed the reigns and tasked both with salvaging what they could from the work that had been done and plotting a new course for the project. As 2024 gets underway, it looks as though production on the project is set to resume soon and fans are starting to become more curious about just what the new direction of the series will be.

Daredevil: Born Again will see Daredevil stars Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio back in action as Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk, respectively. D’Onofrio also has a major role in Marvel Studios’ next streaming project, Echo. During an interview with Collider about his role in that series, D’Onofrio provided a very promising update about the new direction Daredevil: Born Again is headed under the direction of Scardapane, Benson and Moorhead.

We’re having a really good time right now. We’re getting back up. We’re gonna start soon, hopefully sooner than later, and Charlie and I feel like the right vibe is there,” D’Onofrio told Collider. With so much negativity surrounding the MCU right now, fans are hopeful that the time taken to restructure Daredevil: Born Again pays off. After all, Daredevil is one of Marvel’s cornerstone characters and rumors have the series paving the way for the character to play a major role in Spider-Man 4 where he and the Wall-Crawler team up to take on Kingpin in what’s being called a “street-level Civil War.” Whether or not that turns out to be the case, D’Onofrio is convinced that the series is in good hands with the new creative team.

I think all the powers out there that control this whole creative world of the MCU, also believe that we’re in the right place right now… I have to say, it’s luck, really. I mean, my favorite series so far have been Moon Knight and Loki, and we’ve got those guys as directors, and so that’s pretty lucky. And we’ve got Dario, who’s an incredible writer who wrote The Punisher. We’re in a very happy place right now

With the series set to resume production soon, there’s still hope that Daredevil: Born Again will debut on Disney Plus early in 2025. And, if D’Onofrio is right and the new creatives are heading down the right path, it could be one of the studio’s best projects yet.

In Daredevil: Born Again, “longtime rivals Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) try to leave behind their darker alter-egos to serve the people of New York only to have their pasts catch up to them.
