As production on Daredevil: Born Again resumed last week in New York City, set photos flooded social media. While some were more spoilery than others (and other were more spoilery than you know), they combined to give fans a first look at the newly retooled series. One of the more interesting and revelatory BTS pictures confirmed that one of Daredevil’s most psychotic rogues, the deranged serial killer Muse, would indeed be part of the series.
Though the set photo showed some of Muse’s signed street art depicting Wilson Fisk’s Kingpin, some fans weren’t convinced that the psycho killer would show up. However, a set video from X user Finn erases any doubt.
The description of the scene matches a casting call that circulated ahead of filming which called for an experienced graffiti artist to serve as a body double. If some informed speculation is true and the cast hasn’t changed since December 2022, the person in question would be doubling for actor Colin Woodell, who joined the cast in an unknown role ahead of the initial round of production.
While Wilson Fisk is a big enough threat to Daredevil and his allies, Muse throws an entirely different type of threat entirely. A serial killer who uses his victims’ blood and body parts to create art, Muse was first introduced in Charles Soule’s run on Daredevil, which is believed to be one source of inspiration for Daredevil: Born Again. It remains to be seen just how much of a role Muse will play but it’s now clear he’ll be on the streets causing chaos when the series hits Disney Plus in 2025.
