New Daredevil: Born Again set photos have teased plans for Muse to appear in the Disney+ series, while it looks like Marvel Studios has taken fan complaints on board with the return of two fan-favourites.

After concluding that Daredevil: Born Again wasn't working in its original form, Marvel Studios went back to the drawing board and overhauled the Disney+ series. 

The original creative team was fired and showrunner Dario Scardapane (The Punisher) has been enlisted to make sense of what his predecessors came up with. Moon Knight and Loki season 2 directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, meanwhile, are taking charge of the new episodes. 

Production has finally resumed in New York City and we have lots to discuss after taking a closer look at the first set photos. 

Firstly, there's graffiti depicting The Kingpin and it's signed with "Muse." A relatively new creation in the Daredevil mythos, the deranged artist taunted law enforcement and the Man Without Fear by staging elaborate crime scenes featuring the remains of his victims. 

The biggest talking point, however, is a first look at Matt Murdock's law office. In the previous version of Daredevil: Born Again, it's said the plan was for the vigilante to set up a new firm after the death of Foggy and, potentially, Karen as well. 

Here, though, we see a "Nelson, Murdock & Page" sign, conforming they're back in business! Now, it's possible this is from a very early point in the series and tragedy is still looming but we'd guess Marvel Studios has done the right thing and scrapped the notion of moving on from that Netflix era in such a dramatic fashion. 

"During our restart of all the creative on Daredevil: Born Again, all the creatives got together and said, ‘Look, this is how we’ve got to do it now,'" Kingpin actor Vincent D'Onofrio recently said of changes being made to the show. "So we are for sure only speaking about it in terms of being directly connected to the original Daredevil, and that’s a great thing. It brings in a lot of cool stories and all the collateral story that happened in those original three seasons."

The cast of the series includes Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher, and Sandrine Holt as Vanessa Fisk.

Michael Gandolfini, Margarita Levieva, Nikki M. James, Michael Gaston, Arty Froushan, and Clark Johnson have all been cast in undisclosed roles and, as part of this creative overhaul, we now also expect to see Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, and Wilson Bethel as Bullseye.

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

@DocSpock - I checked the twitter page and did not see a hilarious comment. Unless they thought the person who suggested the guy "stand ominously in the background while holding a funny item" was hilarious.

@Shivermetimbers -

Yeah. I couldn't find anything funny either.

Unless maybe the "funny item" was a dildo made of hard pastrami.

Feige needed to make the netflix favorites canon says much about how creatively bankrupt the mcu is atm.

I am totally amped for this show.

After a bag of mostly lousy D+ shows, they better get this one right.

If they get a Marvels level flop on this show, the damage to the D+ Marvel brand may be almost irreparable.

@DocSpock - the same here. Now going to spend the next 12 months or so praying they don’t do something stupid and screw it up.

Cool , I hope it turns out well and wish them the best!!.

Depending on the new episode count , I hope we get this show in arcs where one focuses on a different villain such as Muse or Bullseye while having the DD & Kingpin conflict aswell as other serialized story and character arcs as a throughline in the narrative.

Anyway , interested to see their take on Muse because that is a disturbing & creepy character in the comics.

Remember when they made it Nelson, Murdock and Blake in the comics? This was like that.

But without a wheelchair bound person. Which is just bigoted. Shame on you, Netflix or Disney or James Gunn or whoever.

I hate to say it but almost all of these shows and movies since Endgame has caused most of the Fandom to constantly move the goal posts. The hype rises, the complaints come in, and everyone gets excited for the next thing.. only to be disappointed today

Can't wait for this! The Netflix show was fantastic, and I've still got one episode of Echo left, but based on the first 4, I'd say it's among Disney+'s best. The acting and dialogue is a step above. Cautiously optimistic!

@Izaizaiza - It's definitely in the top tier of MCU TV to this point. I'm also taking my time with it, but so far, so good!
RolandD
RolandD - 1/26/2024, 3:18 PM
@ClintThaHamster @Izaizaiza - No, no , no. Echo is awful. Haven’t this site? Seriously though, I enjoyed it. Fisk seemed more like the Kingpin from the Netflix show, as opposed to only running the tracksuit mafia. I’ve got to admit they seemed pretty ridiculous, although it fit the show which was a little more lighthearted of the time.

@RolandD - Oh rats! Did I express an unpopular opinion again? 🙂 Funny, my unpopular opinions usually have something to do with not hating a show or film staring a woman or POC. 🤔 Must be a coincidence 😂

@RolandD - "Fisk seemed more like the Kingpin from the Netflix show, as opposed to only running the tracksuit mafia."

Agreed I just kinda assumed that he'd fallen on hard times after the events of DD season 3. It's easy to forget, but, factoring in "The Snap," Hawkeye was 8-9 years after the events depicted in Season 3. It would actually make less sense if Born Again just picked up right where Season 3 left off (unless they're planning a blip-related mid-season timejump/reset, which I actually kinda hope they do.)

Not a big fan of those two characters from Netflix,but is ok. Looking forward for muse, that should be interesting.

From what I understand from my contacts they were going to use Tenfingers and Blindspot following the Muse arc but that got cut with the new writers. We’re getting more focus on Muse and then getting Bullseye for the second half of the season after the hiatus.

@ObserverIO - definitely but apparently they’re also doing a version of the White Tiger trial arc from Bendis
