Born Again Will See The Return Of Jon Bernthal’s Punisher
Fans eager for more stories exploring the fraught dynamic between Daredevil, Kingpin, and the Punisher are set for another long-running series that ought to live up to its massive amount of hype. “Daredevil: Born Again” will reunite Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, and now Jon Bernthal for a much longer show than viewers may be used to. We’ve known that the upcoming series will swerve from recent tradition that has limited most of Marvel’s Disney+ shows to between six to nine episodes. Instead, audiences can expect 18-total episodes spearheaded by writers and executive producers Matt Corman and Chris Ord. The series is slated to debut on the streaming service sometime in the spring of 2024.
But while the three most in-demand stars are coming back for another round, THR reports that the vigilantes and villains will not be joined by other familiar faces from the Netflix shows. That would seem to include Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page and Elden Henson’s Foggy Nelson, two of Daredevil’s main supporting characters in both the original series and from the comics. Interestingly enough, the report indicates that it is presently “unclear” whether those characters will be recast or left out entirely. As for Cox, his return has been seeded throughout multiple shows and movies in recent years, from his cameo appearance in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” to a brief supporting turn in “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.” D’Onofrio similarly made his grand return under the official MCU banner in “Hawkeye,” laying the groundwork for his return in “Daredevil: Born Again.”
