In a groundbreaking move for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Daredevil: Born Again has welcomed Dario Scardapane as its first-ever showrunner. Dario, a former executive producer of The Punisher, is set to lead the charge in this highly-anticipated series. Joining him are the dynamic directing duo of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who have been entrusted with bringing the remaining episodes of Season 1 to life, according to a report from THR. This comes as part of a creative overhaul for the show, which saw substantial changes after head writers Chris Ord and Matt Corman departed earlier this month.
In a significant development for the series, Marvel has not only appointed Dario Scardapane as showrunner but has also secured the directing talents of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead to helm the concluding episodes of Daredevil: Born Again’s inaugural season. The duo has previously showcased their directing prowess with episodes of the hit 2022 series, Moon Knight, featuring Oscar Isaac, and episodes from the currently airing second season of Loki, exclusive to Disney+. This fresh take on Daredevil will see the return of familiar faces from the Netflix series, alongside the introduction of new characters, all seamlessly fitting into the larger MCU tapestry.
Reprising his role, Charlie Cox is set to embody the iconic character, Matt Murdock, just as he did in the three seasons of the Netflix series. The actor last portrayed this version of the character at the conclusion of Season 3. Following that, he seamlessly entered the MCU during the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home, resuming his role as Matt Murdock, who conveniently became Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) attorney. Cox is also anticipated to make appearances in She-Hulk and Echo, an upcoming Hawkeye spinoff starring Alaqua Cox.
Marvel’s Daredevil: Born Again brings back the formidable villain, Wilson Fisk, portrayed by the exceptional Vincent D’Onofrio. In the course of Hawkeye, it became evident that New York’s Kingpin of Crime has ambitious plans to reshape the Big Apple’s landscape. D’Onofrio, who previously played the role in the Netflix Daredevil series, continues the legacy of a rivalry that ignited back in 2015. Vincent D’Onofrio isn’t the only familiar face gracing Daredevil: Born Again. Jon Bernthal, known for his role as The Punisher, will also reunite with Charlie Cox in this eagerly awaited series.
Don’t miss out on the action with Daredevil, Moon Knight, The Punisher, and Loki, all available for streaming on Disney+. While the official release date for Daredevil: Born Again on the platform remains to be confirmed, this thrilling addition to the MCU promises to be worth the wait.
