So far, the so-called Defenders, consisting of Luke Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, could be seen in several series on Netflix. However, after Disney rejected a further renewal of the rights transfer, the film rights were returned to the parent company last year. This was quickly followed by various announcements of in-house projects for the Defenders, including the planned series "Daredevil: Born Again".

This week, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the company is planning to bring back a beloved hero from the Netflix days. We are talking about Jon Bernthal, who has had two of his own seasons as the Punisher. After his whole family was murdered, he plans to take revenge on the gangs that caused it. Although the reviews for the Netflix series were not really impressive, it still found a noteworthy following, which has been waiting for new content since the official cancellation in 2019. Even though there is no official confirmation from Marvel yet, the current news is deemed credible, which is why a statement is expected to be made very soon.

In addition to Bernthal and lead actor Charlie Cox, "Daredevil: Born Again" will also mark the return of Vincent D'Onofrio as Kingpin, having already appeared in the "Hawkeye" series. Cox has previously appeared in "Spider-Man: No Way Home" and "She-Hulk". Disappointingly for fans of the Netflix series "Daredevil", his sidekicks Elden Henson and Deborah Ann Woll are not set to come back as Foggy Nelson and Karen Page.

The time frame until you can see "Daredevil: Born Again" on Disney+ will drag on at least until Summer 2024, after a release in Spring 2024 has already been considered unrealistic. This is also due to the fact that "Daredevil: Born Again" will be based on the series "Echo", which is also not scheduled for release until 2024 and will include appearances by Cox and D'Onofrio.

Anyway, the shooting of "Daredevil: Born Again" started a few days ago. So we can look forward to further news soon.
