Daredevil: Born Again underwent a significant creative overhaul that saw Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll and Wilson Bethel–all of whom starred in Marvel Television’s Daredevil–added to the cast. However, as production resumed in New York City, a new set photo confirms that one villain, long rumored to be part of the series, remained in the plans.
A photo taken in the area of W50th to W52nd Street between 9th and 11th Avenues and shared by X user Finn, confirms that the serial killer Muse will indeed be involved in the events of Daredevil: Born Again. The set photo shows a graffitied mural of Wilson Fisk’s Kingpin and is clearly signed by Muse.
Long rumored to be part of the Disney Plus series, Muse is a serial killer who uses his victims’ blood and body parts to create art. The character was first introduced in Charles Soule’s run on Daredevil, which is believed to be one source of inspiration for Daredevil: Born Again. In December 2022, actor Colin Woodell joined the cast of the show and it was widely speculated that he might be taking up the part of the deranged artist.
In addition to confirming Muse’s presence in the project, other set photos shared by Finn show a Nelson, Murdock and Page sign hanging above what will clearly be the office space shared by the 3 in Daredevil: Born Again. The new firm was first drawn up by Foggy in Daredevil 3.13, “A New Napkin.”
