Great news for Marvel fans as they are finally getting a much-awaited new series Daredevil: Born Again following the franchise’s Netflix cancellation. The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen reappeared for the first time in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and again in the Disney+ series She-Hulk. With all these features, it is with no doubt that Charlie Cox is back again as the fan-favorite hero.

Details about the cast have resurfaced and in an exclusive coverage by ScreenGeek, here are the new character details:

  • FREYA: Female, 30s, any ethnicity. Thoughtful, warm, and naturally curious.
  • HARRY: Male, 30s, any ethnicity. Intense and inscrutable.
  • JOSY: Female, 20s, Black. Brash, a brilliant political blogger.
  • CASSANDRA: Female, 40s, Black. A Woman of self-made success. Loyal but can be ruthless if crossed.
  • OLIVIA: Female, 40s, South Asian. Confident and knowledgeable with a willingness to speak her mind.
  • BAILEY: Female, 30s, any ethnicity. Principled and decisive with a brilliant mind.

Note that three of the female characters here are of a specific ethnicity, mostly people of color. Marvel’s attempt to include diversity in the cast has been a practice that is widely celebrated since the debut of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even before that, the studio already had several people of color cast.

It is also safe to say that women in Marvel are thriving in terms of the significance of their characters’ roles. These descriptions in the list echo powerful women who are not afraid to express themselves. The casting is still underway, and we will have more details about the series in the near future.

What We Know About The Upcoming Daredevil Series

So far, this is everything we know about the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again series – Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio will reprise their roles as Murdock and Wilson Fisk. It is still uncertain if Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson will return as Karen Page and Foggy Nelson. There is also no confirmed plot as of yet, but a popular theory has resurfaced, and according to Den of Geek, it will most probably be “one of Daredevil’s best stories.”

If this ring true, the plot in the comics follows a drug-obsessed Karen Page selling Daredevil’s identity to Wilson Fisk. The Kingpin will destroy Murdock’s life, and the latter will be left homeless. The rest would be his journey taking back his life. This is a potentially good concept for the upcoming series.

Daredevil: Born Again has no specific release date yet, but the target premiere date would be the spring of 2024.
