Daredevil: Born Again digs deeper into its characters, says Kingpin Star
Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio explains how the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again TV show on Disney+ will delve even deeper into the Phase 5 characters.
According to Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Kingpin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Daredevil: Born Again will delve into their characters. While Netflix reckless The series will not return for season 4, the show is having a semi-continuation Daredevil: Born Again, which is currently in development for Disney+. The MCU drama will once again star Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, alongside D’Onofrio as the Kingpin, as the two Netflix characters returned to the franchise in Phase Four. Unlike other Marvel Studios Disney+ shows, Daredevil: Born Again Season 1 will have 18 episodes, making it the biggest commitment of any of its original series to date.
while Daredevil: Born Again won’t arrive until 2024 as part of Phase Five, D’Onofrio has already started sharing some teases of what’s coming to the Disney+ series. During a spotlight panel at this year’s Salt Lake City FanX, D’Onofrio talked about his excitement for Daredevil: Born Again. While unable to give away any spoilers, the MCU star promised everyone that the series would delve deeper into the characters than before. Check out what D’Onofrio had to say below:
“You have no idea what to expect [Daredevil: Born Again.] I know a little more than you do, and all I can say is that during the next series, you won’t be thinking about anything but the next episode. I promise. I’m trying to stick to the rules, so I’ll just say that Charlie and I will have the opportunity to go deeper than ever before with our characters.”
How Born Again can delve deeper into its characters
Although Daredevil: Born Again doesn’t directly continue the events of the canceled Netflix drama, the Phase Five series will still explore the characters that viewers followed for three seasons before their appearances in Phase Four. Even though reckless did solid character work for several characters, including Matt and Wilson Fisk, it looks like they’ll have even more room to flesh out the players. The Netflix drama had multiple series regulars, and maybe Daredevil: Born Again will have a smaller cast, which would allow the Disney+ show to emphasize Wilson and Matt. Kingpin played an important role hawk eye season 1, while Matt made guest appearances Spider-Man: No Way Home and two episodes of She-Hulk: Lawyer season 1
However, neither could establish what they have been doing since the incident reckless season 3, which ended on several high notes. The least bit of information Matt gave out recently was that he is still a lawyer and works in Hell’s Kitchen. But Matt never talked about how things were going for him or his friends Foggy Nelson and Karen Page. Despite the crucial Kingpin arc during hawk eyethe writers didn’t even hint at what’s going on since the end of reckless season 3. However, with Daredevil: Born Again season 1, the semi-sequel will not only allow new layers to be explored, but will also reference what Matt and Wilson respectively dealt with in the years leading up to their Phase Five arcs.
Although it makes sense Daredevil: Born Again not being a direct sequel to the Netflix series, it’s also hard to imagine the new show’s writers ignoring their respective mythologies that spanned three seasons. For how many years have passed between the end of reckless and whenever Daredevil: Born Again launches in 2024, there’s plenty of exposition they can use to further build their larger MCU futures and even flashbacks if necessary. Hopefully, more details on Daredevil: Born Again will begin to emerge in the coming months.
