Everyone's favorite blind lawyer and muscle-filled "fat" guy are coming back in a brand new show that will premiere on Disney+ in 2024.
Charlie Cox's Daredevil and Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin both made their entrances into the MCU last year in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye, respectively. However, fans never got to see both of them appear together on-screen let alone continue their iconic feud. Now, this is all about to change.
News of Daredevil: Born Again kicked off the Marvel panel on Saturday, July 23, at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022.

Die-hard fans have wanted to see a new series on Cox's character since Netflix's Daredevil ended in 2018 after three seasons. However, the possibility that Cox and D'Onofrio would come back to reprise their roles grew slimmer by the day - until last year.
As both made their MCU entries official, the rumors of a Daredevil series revival started to pop up as well.
It didn't help that there's also a paper trail proving that Marvel Studios has been up to something like how it set up the Blind Faith Productions, LLC and the industry reports of a new Daredevil season. Besides, Disney would be wasting a huge opportunity if it didn't bring back Cox and D'Onofrio after bringing The Defenders Saga to Disney+ earlier this year.
Having said that, the official announcement of Daredevil's return was more of a matter of when and not if. We found out in May that Covert Affairs creators, Matt Corman and Chris Ord, were on board as the writers and executive producers of a new Daredevil series.
Perhaps the only disappointing thing about the new Daredevil series is the long wait. The good news is that Cox is already confirmed to return in a handful of upcoming shows in the meantime. Cox will reprise his fan-favorite role in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Echo, and the animated series, Spider-Man: Freshman Year. Judging by the late reveal of his involvement in She-Hulk, the blind layer might have more still-unannounced appearances as does Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk.
