Following what was described in the trades as a creative overhaul on the project, Daredevil: Born Again recently restarted production in New York City. With the additions of Wilson Bethel, Elden Henson and Deborah Ann Woll to the cast, many had begun to question just how much of the original story–and cast–for the new series made the cut after Dario Scardapane took over as showrunner. As the days have gone by, it’s starting to seem as though the initial wave of changes aren’t overwhelming and now another actress whose role in the series had been in question has been seen on set.
Following a daytime shoot where Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio shared a table at the Square Diner, Cox was captured during an evening shoot with actress Margarita Levieva.
Levieva joined the cast of Daredevil: Born Again in December 2022, ahead of the initial round of production that took place before the WGA and SAG strikes shut it down. The actress, who is set to play Heather Glenn–one of Matt’s many flings from the comics–had been seen on set before but with Woll’s return, many expected her character’s role to be cut or reduced to make way for Karen Page and Matt to rekindle an old flame. While the set photos do show some kindling, Woll was nowhere to be found during yesterday’s filming.
Reports indicate that 3 new episodes of Daredevil: Born Again are set to be filmed in New York City in the immediate future. Those 3, along with the footage that was shot before the strikes, are said to compose the first part of the series which is expected to hit Disney Plus in 2025.
