While it's apparent Marvel Studios won't be beholden to creative decisions made by Marvel Television, Daredevil: Born Again will serve as a sequel, of sorts, to Netflix's Daredevil.
Plenty of familiar faces are set to return and we've heard that Elden Henson at least makes a cameo appearance as Foggy Nelson. As for Matt Murdock's old flame, Karen Page, it appears the MCU is moving on from a character who became increasingly convoluted and divisive as time passed.
Talking during a recent convention appearance, Daredevil alum Deborah Ann Woll confirmed she hasn't been asked to return for Born Again.
"Am I allowed to cross the streams? I feel like that would be very dangerous. [T]here's a few people who can do it. But I don't know that I'm one of those lucky few," she explained. "I don't know about DC. You know, this was so cool, to be a part of this series. And I think, you know, it was such a unique little corner of the MCU that felt really special."
"I'm really happy with what I've had and there's no, you know, no plans for me so far on either side of the comic book universe," Woll added, "but I'm so grateful for the experience that I had."
As well as appearing in Daredevil, Page later played a key supporting role in spin-offs The Defenders and The Punisher.
Moving on to a new love interest is perhaps for the best, though we're hoping for a throwaway line that addresses Karen's absence. It's worth noting that Marvel Studios has already recast Vanessa Fisk, so it's not outside the realm of possibility we're getting a new take on the character!
Daredevil: Born Again is expected to premiere on Disney+ next year.
