‘Daredevil’s Viewership Skyrockets After Vincent D’Onofrio’s Return in ‘Hawkeye’

Marvel’s expansive plan to continuously grow with the many characters at its display has always been its biggest strength. Once a character makes a surprising appearance in one project, it creates a wave of interest for others. In a way, Marvel Studios can make years-old series or films become trending again. Exactly that has happened, as Nielsen ratings revealed that Netflix’s series Daredevil has seen a massive uptick in viewership. Three years after the final episode aired, it has suddenly joined Nielsen’s SVOD Top 10 list shortly after Charlie Cox made a memorable cameo as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Vincent D’Onofrio returned as the Kingpin in Hawkeye.

The synergy also gave Hawkeye quite the boost, as the Disney+ series managed to also get the third spot in the list with its highest-viewed week. It was watched 938M minutes over its six-episode run while Daredevil garnered 195M minutes with 39 episodes. The Witcher still was the most dominant release during that time period of December 20th until the 27th with 2.2B minutes over its opening weekend alone. Emily in Paris, which was recently renewed, garnered 938M to take the second spot.

Marvel fans might have thought they'd seen the last of Marisa Tomei's May Parker, but the acclaimed actress isn't ready to hang in the towel just yet. During the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the character met her tragic end at the hands of Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin (spoilers!). Her death served as an integral turning point for Tom Holland's titular hero, and Aunt May isn't known for having any super resurrection abilities, so a return in the MCU's main timeline is probably out of the question. Luckily for Tomei, other timelines are exactly the sort of thing the MCU will be focusing on going forward.
