Marvel Studios ambitious 18-episode streaming series, Daredevil: Born Again, began production in New York City in early 2023. Quite a few episodes of the series, which stars Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio, were filmed before the WGA strike forced a shutdown in June. As that strike went on and the SAG strike began, Marvel Studios took a look at what they had put together for the series and decided that the series was in need of a major creative overhaul. Writers Matt Corman and Chris Ord left the show and were replaced by showrunner Dario Scardapane (The Punisher). Moon Knight and Loki Season 2 directors, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, were brought on to determine what was salvageable from the episodes that had been filmed and to take the lead for the rest of the series. With so much going on behind the scenes, production was unable to resume when the dual strikes found resolution; however, according to D’Onofrio, cameras are set to roll soon!
While promoting the upcoming Disney Plus series Echo, which debuts on Hulu and Disney Plus on January 9th, D’Onofrio indicated that a restart of production was right around the corner. According to the star, Daredevil: Born Again will resume filming “not long from now… in a few weeks, in fact.” That information is consistent with the information we heard and shared here:
Even though Moorhead indicated that he and Benson were on “day zero” in November, it’s likely that some portion of the footage that was filmed last year will make its way into the series. With that in mind, it is still entirely possible that the first nine episodes of the series will be ready to roll out by January 2025, which was in the cards at one point in time.
Daredevil: Born Again will see “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.“
