New Rumor Indicates Two Major ‘Daredevil’ Characters Will Now Return for ‘Born Again’

After filming for several months, Marvel Studios Disney Plus streaming series Daredevil: Born Again paused production due to the SAG strike. Before it did, plenty of reports and rumors about the series made their way online including one that indicated two major supporting characters from the Netflix Dedenders-verse series were not part of the plans for the D+ show. Now, a new report suggests that’s changed.

According the Jeff “The In” Sneider, Elden Henson and Deborah Ann Woll have joined the cast of Daredevil: Born Again as part of the sweeping creative overhaul ordered for the series.

Henson and Woll, who played Foggy Nelson and Karen Page, respectively, were introduced in 2015’s Daredevil and had significant roles in that 3 seasons of that series while also appearing in other Netflix series, as well. Online fan response to them reportedly NOT returning for Daredevil: Born Again was largely negative. Sneider’s report did not indicate how large of a role the returning actors will have in the series

After having time to review footage during the strike-induced shutdown, Kevin Feige and crew decided to change up the creative team on Daredevil: Born Again. Dario Scardapane was brought on as showrunner while Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead–who are quickly becoming Marvel Studios go-to-duo–were brought in to direct. According to Sneider, the new creative team will use the previously shot footage to put together 6 episodes. As production restarts, the plan is to film 3 new episodes–one of which will be a new “Episode 1”–giving them nine episode to roll out as the first half of the series.
