Charlie Cox is back in red as Daredevil as more set images from the upcoming Disney+ Marvel series Daredevil: Born Again emerge. The images find Cox now sporting his more streamlined, much brighter superhero suit while filming scenes from the show, which is all set to land on the streaming platform Disney+ in 2025 as part of Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
You can check out the new images (via Daredevil Updates) from the set of Daredevil: Born Again below.
These images come following the recent reveal of the new Daredevil suit (which was being worn by Cox’s stuntperson) with many loving the changes, but still disappointed that there is no “DD” on the chest. Alongside Cox’s new duds, set images from Daredevil: Born Again have also offered our first look at Wilson Bethel’s return as as Benjamin “Dex” Poindexter, aka Bullseye.
Previous images from set have teased the reunion of Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page, and Elden Henson’s Franklin “Foggy” Nelson on the set of Daredevil: Born Again. A reunion that has fans getting emotional. Taking to social media to celebrate and react to the confirmation that the Disney+ Daredevil series will now include Karen Page and Foggy following a major retooling of the series. You can check out some of the reactions below:
Daredevil: Born Again has undergone major rewrites and changes following a negative reaction from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. It was reported at the time that the series would not feature Karen Page or Foggy Nelson at all, with both characters being killed off-screen prior to the events of Born Again. Clearly, this was not something that Marvel fans were looking forward to, with the characters instead now playing a part in the show and thus giving audiences the reunion they want.
However, while we now know that Karen and Foggy will feature in Daredevil: Born Again, some have theorized that the writers may still kill them off…
The return of familiar faces within new narratives often brings a unique blend of nostalgia and fresh storytelling. The Daredevil: Born Again series, which marks a significant shift from its previous incarnation, has been buzzing in the entertainment world following a major creative overhaul. This transformation has led to the reintroduction of characters Karen Page and Foggy Nelson, portrayed by Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson, respectively. Their return to the fold, alongside Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, signals a rekindling of the chemistry and dynamics that fans have cherished over the years.
Before the advent of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s iteration of Daredevil, the original Netflix series showcased the hero’s battles against Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin, aided by Karen and Foggy. The initial absence of these characters in the “Born Again” lineup raised questions among the fans. However, Marvel Studios, known for its fan-centric approach, has brought these characters back, responding to the audience’s attachment to the original ensemble.
The videos show the trio under their law firm’s sign “Nelson Murdock Page” and images of the characters engaging in light-hearted moments, reminiscent of their earlier camaraderie.
Furthermore, these visuals have confirmed a direct connection to the conclusion of Daredevil season three on Netflix. The revelation that the law firm ‘Nelson, Murdock, and Page’ is featured in “Born Again” not only affirms the continuity but also honors the narrative’s history. By merging traditional and modern elements, the creators demonstrate their reverence for the original series and their intention to forge a new path in the MCU.
Intriguingly, one of the set photos (via X) has unveiled a piece of street art depicting Kingpin, signed by Muse – a reference to a villain from the comics known for his dark, artistic tendencies. This detail might hint at new storylines or adversaries in Daredevil: Born Again, adding layers to the existing narrative fabric.
