DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN – Trailer (2024) Charlie Cox, Jon Bernthal

With Daredevil: Born Again set to come out in early 2025, Charlie Cox recently shared some of his hopes about playing the character for a long time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Cox first portrayed Matt Murdock in the Netflix series Daredevil, which was released on April 10, 2015. The show spanned 39 episodes across three seasons and appeared alongside other Marvel street heroes in The Defenders series before ending on October 29, 2018. Charlie Cox would make his first appearance as the character in the MCU timeline three years later in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

It originally wasn’t clear if the Netflix shows that included Daredevil were canon to the MCU, with Daredevil: Born Again’s story seeming set to answer this question. However, the Defenders Saga has been confirmed as MCU canon in recent history, with Vincent D’Onofrio reprising his Kingpin role in Echo and Cox appearing as Daredevil in two different MCU shows already. Cox recently spoke with Deadline at the 2024 Disney Upfront and talked about some of his hopes for Daredevil in the MCU, which includes playing the character for another ten years.

Despite nothing being confirmed, it may be more likely than ever before that Élodie Yung could be returning as Elektra Natchios in Daredevil: Born Again. Yung herself has suggested several times that she would be happy to reprise the role, and since The Defenders left her fate uncertain, it’s very possible that she could return.Daredevil: Born Again (2024)

Most recently, Yung spoke to toofab and suggested that she would love to return, but that they’d need to “Ask Mr. Marvel.” This certainly leaves the door open for her return, and Marvel Studios may be more inclined to bring her back after recent developments. Following the creative overhaul of Daredevil: Born Again after 2023’s WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, many actors from Marvel Television’s Daredevil were confirmed to be returning in Daredevil: Born Again.

The Defenders Saga was officially introduced into the MCU canon, suggesting that Daredevil’s story will properly continue in Born Again, and the returns of Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page, Elden Henson’s Foggy Nelson, Wilson Bethel’s Benjamin Poindexter, a.k.a. Bullseye, and Ayelet Zurer’s Vanessa Fisk prove that Born Again is practically Daredevil season 4. The fact that Elektra’s story may be unfinished means she would make an excellent addition to Born Again.
