The fourth phase of the MCU has been spending a lot in bringing new characters to the MCU, however certain actors have returned to their roles as characters they played previously under a different name. For instance, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness featured Patrick Stewart’s return as Charles Xavier, a character which he’d played before in a variety of X-Men movies which aren’t part the MCU franchise. Two other actors in the same group with Stewart is Charlie Cox, who portrayed Daredevil in the self-titled Netflix series, as well as Vincent D’Onofrio, who played the character who played Kingpin. Kingpin.
D’Onofrio’s initial MCU appearance was in Hawkeye, the Disney+ show, Hawkeye in which Hawkeye was the antagonist in the mastermind behind closed doors. However, the show didn’t even have him on screen until the two final episodes. Following the time that Hawkeye was able to confirm the fact that Wilson Fisk was now a part of the MCU and Spider-Man The Animated Way Home did the same thing for Daredevil the fans were convinced that it was just the matter of time before there was a project focusing on the two rivals.
This was confirmed after Marvel Studios recently announced at San Diego Comic-Con that the two will be the main characters in an upcoming series with Disney+, and D’Onofrio assured fans some teasers of his character’s imminent presence via social networks.

Murdock V. Fisk The MCU Rematch
Vincent D’Onofrio has made it evident many times that he is a fan of Wilson Fisk. He even went into the public record to state that he would like to continue to play the character when Daredevil was pulled off Netflix. Since the MCU is the sole owner of characters like Fisk as well as Matt Murdock Marvel Studios can do whatever it likes to do with these characters in the near future and it appears that they have already made some big plans for what’s to come in the near future.
The most significant aspect of the Daredevil: Born Again announcement is the fact that Season 1 will comprise 18 episodes. This is an enormous leap from the model that the MCU has used so far, since the majority of the shows which have been launched through Disney+ so far have only had six episodes. It’s unclear whether Born Again will have more than one season or if it will be a series that is limited like WandaVision however the simple reason it will feature 18 episodes already means it is comparable to the three seasons that could be for other MCU shows available on Disney+, the platform for streaming.
Daredevil Born Again is expected to debut in Disney+ in Spring 2024. The character is also believed to join Cox on Echo the show, which will begin streaming in the summer of 2023.
