With D23 officially in the past, the waiting game for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe slate moves forward. With that in mind, one of the most heavily anticipated projects for Phase Five of the MCU is Daredevil: Born Again. Audiences have long been clamoring for Charlie Cox to reprise his role of Matthew Murdock in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the cancellation of the original Netflix series in 2018. And by the point in which casual fans had generally resided themselves to the notion that the Netflix universe of characters was fully finished, Marvel Studios dropped two bombshells late last year with the return of Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk in Hawkeye. And now following Charlie Cox’s upcoming involvement in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Matt Murdock will once again star in his own series with Born Again.
Following D’Onofrio‘s return in Hawkeye, his fate was left in question with the finale of the Disney+ series. It has since been confirmed, however, that Wilson Fisk will be involved with both Echo and Daredevil: Born Again. And when it comes to Born Again, D’Onofrio has been outspoken in his excitement for his involvement with Charlie Cox. In a tweet today, the actor discussed his return and has promised fans that the revival will be worth the wait.
It certainly is a lofty promise from Vincent D’Onofrio about Daredevil: Born Again. Though with three times the episode count of the other Marvel Studios Disney+ franchises and the quality of most of the original Netflix series, it’s certainly not impossible to match. The concept of these characters being fully present in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the larger-than-life nature of the franchise certainly could become a major point of interest. At this time, not much is known about what Born Again may entail and if anyone else from the original Netflix series (or other Marvel Netflix franchises) will be involved.
Daredevil: Born Again is currently scheduled to begin filming next year and release its 18-episode run in the Spring of 2024.
