It took awhile for Marvel Studios' to figure out what the upcoming Disney+ series Daredevil: Born Again should be. In fact, it took half a season of filming to figure out they were doing it wrong. Then Marvel Studios halted production, let the original writers go, and decided to go back-to-basics in body and in soul - including adding back a few bodies from the originsl Netflix series Daredevil.

“It was pretty heartbreaking when [Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson] weren’t around initially,” says Daredevil Actor Charlie Cox of his co-stars, who play Karen Page and Foggy Nelson respectively, during a recent appearance at Awesome Con 2024. "When we came back to filming, and they had made some changes, which you guys have probably read about and stuff, it was clear that Foggy and Karen are kind of the heartbeat of our show, and always were."

Marvel Studios' resumed filming of Daredevil: Born Again in January, and one of the major changes included hiring Woll and Henson back to reprise their roles - and for Cox, is was a welcome change.

"It was really special to have them back. Huge shoutout to Deborah and Elden," says Cox. "I know there’s been some set photos that came out, so I know I can talk about it, because it’s on the internet. But it was really sweet to have some scenes together again.”

Daredevil: Born Again is currently filming in New York, and we're hopeful for a late 2024 or early 2025 debut.
