It's been confirmed today that Daredevil: Born Again has wrapped shooting on its first 9 episodes and not the entire 18-episode series, suggesting there's still more to come from the Daredevil revival...

Earlier this week, the news broke that Daredevil: Born Again had wrapped filming. Shooting started last year, only to be paused when Marvel Studios decided to fire the creative team and overhaul a series which seemingly wasn't working. 

Some footage and ideas will make it into the new version, though we're unlikely to ever know what the previous version of this Daredevil follow-up looked like. However, based on what we've heard, Foggy Nelson, Karen Page, and Bullseye were absent, as was the Man Without Fear's costume for much of the revival. 

In recent months, we've been treated to plenty of set photos and footage, showcasing everyone from White Tiger to The Punisher.

More of those are likely somewhere on the horizon, though, as Daredevil: Born Again stunt coordinator Philip J. Silvera has confirmed they've wrapped on episodes 1 - 9, not the entire 18-episode series. 

This appears to confirm reports that the show is being split into two separate seasons and lines up with what we've been hearing. Right now, the expectation is that Daredevil: Born Again "season 1" will tie up Daredevil's loose ends before "season 2" tells its own story, potentially leading directly into Spider-Man 4 (which has yet to be decided).

More photos from the final day of shooting have also found their way online:

The cast of Daredevil: Born Again includes Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher, Wilson Bethel as Bullseye, and Sandrine Holt as Vanessa Fisk.

Michael Gandolfini, Margarita Levieva, Nikki M. James, Michael Gaston, Arty Froushan, Clark Johnson, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Hunter Doohan have all been cast in undisclosed roles, though we believe the latter is playing Muse.

Daredevil: Born Again will likely premiere on Disney+ in 2025/2026.

"and not the entire 18-episode series,'

No way..... no freaking way!

Man is a genius guys! He can MATH.
Origame - 4/7/2024, 8:13 AM
@VISIONaryNPa1 - I canz maths too?
bkmeijer1 - 4/7/2024, 7:38 AM
Why are we hearing from this from a twitter scooper though and not they guy himself? Until then I'm treating this as a rumour (which it should've said in the title imo).

And I hope it's not 9 30-minute episodes, as every 9 episode Disney show has been so far. It's over before it has begun. Rather just see 9 full hour episodes instead of 18 half hour ones
TheVisionary25 - 4/7/2024, 9:37 AM
@bkmeijer1 - I wonder if the 30 minute thing for the most part is a budget reason or not?.

Anyway , that image of DD and Punisher is from the stunt coordinators social media account and it says there the first half has wrapped filming.
bkmeijer1 - 4/7/2024, 10:07 AM
@TheVisionary25 - I must've missed that social media post then.

Don't think it's a budget thing though. Even the 6 episode shows are around 45 minutes on average, so either way it's only 4.5 hours of television. Which is not a lot, considering the 100 million+ budget these shows have
TheVisionary25 - 4/7/2024, 10:09 AM
@bkmeijer1 - possibly

Hopefully it works out for the best.
bkmeijer1 - 4/7/2024, 10:15 AM
@TheVisionary25 - yeah. Do hope they start shooting Part 2 soon though then, although I can imagine it's some time away given how many projects are already in development
TheVisionary25 - 4/7/2024, 10:21 AM
@bkmeijer1 - apparently it might be this fall

If they need the summer to over what they have shot or polish up the scripts for the second half then I’m cool with it
bkmeijer1 - 4/7/2024, 10:33 AM
@TheVisionary25 - that could be it. Just wonder if it's gonna conflict with any other projects Marvel Studios is working on. They have a lot in development or already close to finishing, but pretty much no release windows set in stone.

Wouldn't it be crazy if they killed him at the end, Shadowland style and we don't get t see him again until Secret Wars. Y'know, take him off the board before Avengers 5?
TheMetaMan - 4/7/2024, 7:42 AM
I just watched a video of them shooting some fight scenes and I’m thrilled to know that bullseye is back!! Love this character and can’t wait to see him, punisher, daredevil, kingpin kick ass!
Fogs - 4/7/2024, 7:50 AM
Take your time, do it right.

Despite what some people say, the MCU really need to up their game quality-wise.
Origame - 4/7/2024, 8:32 AM
@Fogs - it's ridiculous people are still denying the state the mcu is in.

Only one phase 5 project wasn't a failure, guardians 3. And even then it barely broke even.
Th3Batman - 4/7/2024, 9:24 AM
@Origame - That's nothing compared to the DCEU fanboys who thought rebooting was a bad idea, despite every movie released since 2018 making less than $400 million at the box office.
SpiderParker - 4/7/2024, 9:35 AM
@Origame - Funny that you think the 4th highest grossing movie of 2023 barely broke even. Even funnier is that you mentioned phase 5 project but failed to count the web series, of which by the way, 3 out of 4 were critically well received.

You can't form a consensus on only 3movies from a larger group, ofcourse 2 of them will lean to one side or the other, the next movie might as well balance the scale so stop mentioning phase 5 while ignoring the majority of points that doesn't go with your "opinion".
Origame - 4/7/2024, 9:38 AM
@Th3Batman - ...so still sticking with "this group is worse"?
Origame - 4/7/2024, 9:41 AM
@SpiderParker - 1) yeah, it's almost as if all of Hollywood is struggling to bring quality projects.

2) critically well received is now the equivalent of saying high score on whose line is it anyway. The last jedi was critically well received.

Plus, this is disney. Web series shouldn't be the de facto argument for quality.

3) phase 5 was more than just the movies. And those were big, high budget movies. One setting the stage for the entire multiverse saga, which they advertised. And they still flopped.
SpiderParker - 4/7/2024, 10:08 AM
@Origame - 1) Good to know you still have some common sense left to recognize the failure of Hollywood, wait - correction, global theatrical movies as a whole. But applying the same toward Marvel movies must be too much for your capability, some would call it hypocrisy.

2) As you admitted just now, that the Hollywood box office is struggling, ofcourse the only other way to judge it is how well received it is, especially since we are also talking about web series. And you brought in the topic of Phase 5, not me, which includes web series, if you wanna talk about movies, don't bring in Phase 5 into it.

3) Thanks for understanding phase 5 was more than just movies. BTW, the next one is also setting the stage for the entire multiverse saga, in fact, until now there have been 5 projects setting the stage for multiverse and 4 of which were critically praised. So, it seems like you are only looking at glass half-empty, wait - correction, 1/5th empty. Pessimistic much?
Origame - 4/7/2024, 10:18 AM
@SpiderParker - 1) what point are you even trying to make here? Marvel is the one up for discussion here so I'm bringing them up. The rest of Hollywood forgetting how to make movies doesn't change the fact it applies to marvel too. Unlike you, I'm actually willing to say they're all f@#$ing up rather than pretending the mcu is fine

2) you're acting like movies like top gun and avatar haven't come out. And you do realize examples of critically acclaimed shows includes secret invasion. Good luck convincing anyone here that's a good show 🤣

3) ah, the old "it'll be good in the next movie" argument. And dude, people are going for deadpool and wolverine. They don't care about how it sets up secret wars.
ShimmyShimmyYA - 4/7/2024, 10:43 AM
@SpiderParker - he’s just gonna do wheel spinning avoidance
SpiderParker - 4/7/2024, 11:57 AM
@Origame - Top Gun, Avatar? Meanwhile, here you are pretending like, SM:NWH, BP:WF, DS:MOM, GOTG3 and EVEN T:L&T didn't perform well at box office. Its not about Hollywood forgetting about how to make movies, its about box office, people are not that interested in going to the theater to watch a movie which will be on streaming in about 2months. But that's just about box office, quality is a different topic which you are not mature enough to talk with.

No one said Secret invasion is critically praised, in fact, I said phase 5 had 3 out of 4 web series that were well received. Also, I never said next one will be great, the point was you are making a mountain out of a molehill in regards to Quantumania. Only one out of five multiversal projects failed, statistically the next movie has more chances of succeeding than failing. Very typical of you to put new narrative when you have no material.

@ShimmyShimmyYA - I know very well its pointless, its still interesting to point out his obvious flaws in judgement while he keeps ignoring and spinning it like a kid who got called out on eating a chocolate or forgetting homework who then blames it on the dog. Almost funny yet pitiful.
Origame - 4/7/2024, 12:05 PM
@SpiderParker - 1) yes, I'm really pretending I don't know guardians 3, even though I specified that movie was the one success of phase 5 🤣.

The point I'm making is movies nowadays CAN be successful if they're good. Quantumania, the marvels, secret invasion, and echo are not good.

2) then please quote the "good" shows then. You mean like loki, that did worse than not only the first season but also worse than she hulk? Or echo which took the crown for worst performing show easily?

3) you've got some nerve saying I'm spinning sh!t when you call terrible performing shows a success purely because of critics liking it. 🤣
bobevanz - 4/7/2024, 1:04 PM
@SpiderParker - lmao grasp those straws. Here's a fun breakdown!

Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania - $200 million budget, $476 million WW gross
Shazam! Fury of the Gods - $125 million budget, $134 million WW gross
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 - $250 million budget, $846 million WW gross
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse - $150 million budget, $691 million WW gross
The Flash - $220 million budget, $271 million WW gross
Blue Beetle - $125 million budget, $130 million WW gross
The Marvels - $220 million budget, $205 million WW gross
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom - $205 million budget, $350 million WW gross*
CBM movies specifically are in the toilet, meanwhile a movie about Barbie and a three hour talkie both almost made a billion dollars.
bobevanz - 4/7/2024, 1:07 PM
So either they're saving the second half for a second season, or they're waiting to see if people actually care about this lol
SpiderParker - 4/7/2024, 2:06 PM
@bobevanz - 4 of those were doomed even before they came out since the impending death of DCEU. 2 of those did good numbers even surpassing their prequels. And the other two had bad word of mouth or lack of good publicity prior to release along with possible quality issues.

Compare that to the phase 4 Marvel movies, 4 out of 7 performed really well at the box office and the other 3 should be lauded at their performance considering it was the peak of the pandemic.
SpiderParker - 4/7/2024, 2:08 PM
@Origame - How do you judge a Web Series if not how well received it is? Where do you come up with these performance stats? Most are just estimates, they are inconclusive. Echo opened at Number 1 on both D+ and Hulu. Both Loki S2 premiere and finale were 2nd most watched of the year only after Mandalorian.
Origame - 4/7/2024, 2:40 PM
@SpiderParker - ...by the viewership.

And yeah, it opened number one on sites where it was the new content on the service. Color me shocked 🤣
Origame - 4/7/2024, 4:03 PM
@SpiderParker - 1) it's an estimate because only disney has the full numbers. Which they aren't mentioning 🤔

Also, US is the leading market. The fact it's doing this low in the US still says a lot. Especially since it's showing a downward trend from what these estimates also gave for season 1 of loki and wandavision.

2) yeah, that still doesn't make it a success. It's a product for sale. And people aren't buying.

3) and those were still successful. Movies are a business. News at 11.

And you keep saying they "damaged the brand", but bvs made more than man of steel, people were begging for Snyder to return after justice league (which did lose money so wasn't successful), and transformers kept making money until the last knight. All these projects with the exception of justice league and the last knight were successes.

Also, this seems to imply justice league was good, and bumblebee was bad. Interesting take 🙄

3) and yes, bad successful films leads to bad faith. Hence phase 4.
Origame - 4/7/2024, 6:26 PM
@SpiderParker - dude, Americans are the main market for American programs. You can see the box office of any US movie to tell that.

Even if the foreign market matched the domestic market, then that means it's still half the viewership of the previous seasons.

And no, I didn't say that. Bvs very easily could've accounted for the drop. But an even greater reason for the drop was the clear drop in quality the visuals took and the redirection towards goofy comedy.

Also, it did capitalize on batman. It made over 800 mil at the box office.

And no, anyone who saw the Snyder cut knows that was Joss whedon through and through.

And here come the pandemic excuses. Dude, no way home broke records the month after eternals flopped. And the marvels was well after that. Stop acting like the pandemic still impacts things.
Origame - 4/7/2024, 9:51 PM
@SpiderParker - ...yeah. and both those movies are in a completely different continuity. This was a brand new version of batman.

The dark knight and the dark knight rises grossed over a billion because people were invested in that version of batman.

The batman made about 700 mil. Are you seriously gonna say it's because that movie was bad? No. It's because it was a new series going in a new direction.

Also, the snydercut only cost 70 mil. Which is actually what you'd expect the budget of a straight to streaming movie (which it was). It cost about as much as both extraction movies.

Also, you're high if you think the whedon cut was better. The whedon cut couldn't even explain what the mother box is 🤣

And what do you mean clueless? They wanted a movie, then got it. Basic economics. Maybe marvel should learn people just want fun superhero movies instead of how many boxes they can check.

And the marvels had plenty of publicity. Literally all they weren't able to do was have the actors do interviews. And since 2 of the leads are complete unknowns and the other lead is the internet infamous brie larson, that probably helped the movie.

Seriously, how many people in the general audience even bother watching the interviews, let alone let them influence their choices?
Origame - 4/8/2024, 7:33 AM
@SpiderParker - nope wrong. It was 70 mil.


Dude, no one is counting the budget including what it cost to make the theatrical cut. The reason being obvious, the theatrical cut already had its theatrical run. This was money put in for what is essentially a straight to streaming movie. So you only count what it cost to finish the film.

You're literally the only one counting the full production to call the Snyder cut a failure.

And I can credit whedon. Because, even though it was a month, it no longer was his work. It was fundamentally a different movie. The difference though is I don't BLAME whedon, because he was given a very difficult task.

Yes, the batman brand was so ruined. That's why the batman made 700 mil. Glad to see you keep ignoring this.

But even if what you were saying about dc was 100% correct, none of it matters. Because we're talking about how marvel is a tarnished brand.
Origame - 4/8/2024, 7:34 AM
@SpiderParker - also, Nokia was always a quality phone. It's not their fault better phones like blackberry and iPhone came in and buried it.
LSHF - 4/7/2024, 8:09 AM
I never once suspected they were done with all of them, especially since it was already announced they were going to do two 9-episode seasons (or whatever).
GhostDog - 4/7/2024, 8:09 AM
I don’t hate it. Take your time.
Doomsday8888 - 4/7/2024, 8:20 AM
Then that means the show's gonna be fire.

Punisher already shows up in the first half, nice.
Timerider - 4/7/2024, 8:26 AM
I think they filmed all the action sequences first, and the second half will be the courtroom, office drama and funerals later. The second half will be easier, maybe. They’ll still have pick-ups and have to film those additional scenes they need after looking at what they filmed already in the editing stage.
cubrn - 4/7/2024, 8:58 AM
I hope She-Hulk shows up
marvel72 - 4/7/2024, 9:02 AM
@cubrn - Of course you do.
