Daredevil Reunion Brings Fans To Tears

By Charlene Badasie | Published

Daredevil fans are having all the feels after set photos confirmed the return of Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page and Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson. “Matt Murdock, Karen Page, and Foggy Nelson are back. I’m shaking, crying, screaming from happiness this trio again together!!! This is so heartwarming. I still feel like it’s a dream. I can’t believe it’s real,” one fan wrote on X.

“Anytime I think life is pointless, I just remember that we’re getting Matt, Foggy, and Karen together again, and I realize I need to live just a bit longer,” another wrote of the unexpected reunion. When Daredevil: Born Again initially began production, it was announced that Woll and Henson would not be reprising their roles as Karen and Foggy from the previous Daredevil series.

But following the show’s creative overhaul, speculation began circulating that Woll and Henson might be making a comeback. Now, along with the mini video clip of the trio walking down the sidewalk, one set photo features a plaque displaying the names of Murdock, Nelson, and Page near the law office door. There is also a snapshot of artwork featuring Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk.

Daredevil: Born Again promises an intense showdown between Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk/Kingpin. New additions to the cast include Sandrine Holt, Michael Gandolfini, and Margarita Levieva, while Jon Bernthal is set to reprise his role as Frank Castle/The Punisher. D’Onofrio recently gave fans some insight into the upcoming project.

 He explained that Daredevil: Born Again is not just a continuation of the previous Netflix show. “I think it’s definitely a new show. It’s not the Netflix show,” D’Onofrio said. The actor also expressed his enthusiasm for working alongside Charlie Cox, highlighting the dedication and hard work they both bring to their roles.

Daredevil and its associated spinoffs are now officially recognized within the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon.

“We’re really just delivering. It’s a lot of work. Charlie’s amazing because he has to do all the stunts and stuff, so he’s in constant training and learning different things,” D’Onofrio added about the new Daredevil. “But the scenes are great. I’m trying to skirt around specifics, but I can only say that it is a different show, and it feels like a different show.”

The first season of Netflix’s Daredevil premiered in April 2015 and consisted of 13 episodes. The story revolves around Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), who is blinded as a child but gains heightened senses as a result. By day, he works as a lawyer in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City, alongside his friend and law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and their secretary Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll).

Matt Murdock dons a red costume at night and becomes Daredevil, fighting crime and corruption in Hell’s Kitchen. The series received widespread acclaim for its dark and gritty tone, complex characters, and well-choreographed fight scenes. Season 1 was followed by two additional seasons, which continued to explore Murdock’s superhero journey and introduced new characters and story arcs.

Unfortunately, despite the critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base, Netflix canceled Daredevil along with other Marvel series on the platform, reportedly due to the end of the partnership between Marvel Television and Netflix. When Daredevil: Born Again was given the green light, it was meant to function as a subtle reboot.

Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio were set to reprise their roles as Daredevil and Kingpin, but as alternate versions, allowing Marvel Studios to introduce the characters without explicitly acknowledging the storyline developments of the Netflix Daredevil series. However, the plan changed during production when a new creative team, including new lead writers, took the helm.

It was recently announced that Daredevil: Born Again would fully recognize and incorporate the events from the original series. Consequently, Daredevil and its associated spinoffs are now officially recognized within the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon. The series does not have an official premiere date at this time.
