Marvel announced and confirmed many upcoming projects this weekend during its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The project that fans arguably had the biggest reaction was to Daredevil: Born Again.
Nevermind the fact that the show will consist of 18 episodes. The fan-favorite character is back home at Marvel, and Charlie Cox is reprising his role after the previous Daredevil series got canceled at Netflix a few years ago.
Obviously, Cox will be joined by Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin, but fans are itching to also know if anyone else from the original series will return. While nothing is official, two actors from the show might have already answered that question.
Sunday, both Royce Johnson and Gregory Cantor took to Instagram to share their excitement over the character’s new series. For those who might not remember the two, Johnson played the seemingly only good cop in Hell’s Kitchen named Brett Mahoney. He became one of Daredevil’s few allies on the ground. Cantor, on the other hand, played Mitchell Ellison. The Editor-in-Chief at the New York Bulletin, he served as the boss of both Ben Urich and Karen Page. You might recall that Page took over for Urich after he was murdered by Kingpin in the first season. Ellison became a friend and confidant for Karen after Urich’s death.
Johnson simply posted the logo for the series with the caption “Summer 2024”, while Cantor designed his whole profile to act as a promo for the series.
Now, this does not mean that both actors are returning to the series. Both posts could just be simple gestures supporting Marvel’s decision to honor Cox and his portrayal of the character. However, with both Cox and D’Onofrio coming back, it wouldn’t make much sense to recast every other role, especially those played by Elden Hensen and Deborah Ann Woll.
While it still remains to be seen if the original cast comes back, the good news is that fans won’t have to wait much longer to see Daredevil again. The character will make his debut as a masked vigilante in the MCU on Marvel’s next Disney+ series She-Hulk next month. With Jennifer Walters being a lawyer, it would make sense to see him the courtroom in some capacity too.
She-Hulk hits Disney+ on Augusr 17th.
