Synopsis

Matt Murdock is a brilliant legal mind and a righteous vigilante known to the world as Daredevil. Blinded as a young boy, he was brought up in an orphanage and trained to fight by his mentor Stick, a blind martial arts master. Fighting petty crime across Hell’s Kitchen brought Daredevil face-to-face with his long-time nemesis Wilson Fisk, a powerful mob boss known as Kingpin. The villain and the vigilante have been battling each other for years. In Born Again, their paths cross in what is set to be their most violent high-stakes encounter yet.

What to know

Daredevil: Born Again is an upcoming superhero television series produced by Marvel Studios. The show is a sequel to the Daredevil series that ran on Netflix between 2015-18. Despite this, it acts as a standalone show and is part of Phase Five of the MCU. Clocking in at 18 episodes the show will stream exclusively on Disney+. Daredevil: Born Again is created by Matt Corman and Chris Ord with Kevin Feige acting as executive producer.

After a few teasing cameos in other MCU titles, Charlie Cox is confirmed to return for his own outing as Daredevil/Matt Murdock. Few MCU actors have been as beloved by fans as Charlie Cox when playing the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen in the initial three-season outing. His is not the only return keeping continuity with the previous show created by Drew Godard. Having had a quick cameo of his own in the MCU, Vincent D’Onofrio dons the pristine white blazer again playing Kingpin/Wilson Fisk. D’Onofrio is known for his restrained performance as the villainous crime boss. Both actors who are confirmed for Daredevil: Born Again, will have their first onscreen reunion in the Marvel show Echo.

Where to stream

Daredevil: Born Again will be released on Disney+ in Spring 2024. Until the release, the first three seasons of Daredevil can be watched now on Disney+.
