Familiar Faces From The Netflix Series Are Returning
On Wednesday, January 24, it was confirmed by Deadline that Wilson Bethel will reprise his role as Bullseye in the upcoming series Daredevil: Born Again. Bethel had previously portrayed the character in the third season of the Netflix Daredevil (2015-2018) show alongside Charlie Cox’s Daredevil.
Behind The Scenes History of “Born Again”
Bethel’ Bullseye is to be featured in three episodes of Daredevil: Born Again.
The star of the upcoming show, Charlie Cox, told IGN “I don’t think it means we’re going to tell the Frank Miller story of Born Again in the comics. I don’t think it means that. I think it’s — you know we made the [Netflix] show, it ended, years passed, and we’re making another show.”
Born Again was first announced in July 2022 with Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio coming back as Daredevil and Kingpin. The show initially started production in May 2023, before being put on hold due to a “creative reboot”. By October of that year, Marvel decided to restart work on the show by replacing the original writers and reshooting much of what had already been filmed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel has reduced the amount of episodes from 18 to 13.
Who Else is Returning for the New Show?
Aside from Cox, D’Onofrio, and now Bethel, there are a few more stars from the original Daredevil supposedly coming back. Jon Bernthal is also returning as Frank Castle.
Earlier this month, there were reports by Jeff Sneider from Collider that Elden Henson and Deborah Ann Woll will be returning as Foggy Nelson and Karen Paige, respectively, though there has been no official confirmation this is happening.
With so many actors coming back from the original show, one wonders if any other familiar faces from the Netflix Marvel series will reprise their roles. There have been rumors of Kristen Ritter coming back as Jessica Jones. Finn Jones and Mike Colter, who originally played Danny Rand and Luke Cage, respectively, have each expressed interest in coming back. Time will tell if any of this turns out to be true but from what it looks like, it seems Born Again might be a continuation of the Netflix series after all.
Daredevil is available to stream on Disney+.
