Daredevil Born Again Taps the Sopranos Lead James Gandolfini’s Son Michael Gandolfini in Major Role

After alleged reports of Bob Iger toning down the series Daredevil: Born Again, the fans received some good news. According to sources, Michael Gandolfini is all set to take up arms against Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in the upcoming series.

There are many rumors on the Internet about the character that Gandolfini will play, one of them being Wilson Fisk’s son and heir, Richard Fisk.

Michael Gandolfini To Appear in Daredevil: Born Again?

Portraying the role of a young Tony Soprano in the 2021 movie The Many Saints of Newark, Michael Gandolfini found much success and love from the people. The role was specially made famous by his father who played the adult version of Tony Soprano in the drama series The Sopranos. The fans loved both James Gandolfini and his son Michael Gandolfini in the series and the prequel movie.

As per reports by Deadline, Michael Gandolfini is all set to portray a role in the upcoming series Daredevil: Born Again. Although there have been rumors as to which character the actor will portray, there is a pretty good chance of introducing Gandolfini as Wilson Fisk’s son. Richard Fisk is the son and heir of Wilson and Vanessa Fisk. The fictional character is dominant in the comics as he rises up against his father in his later years.

As per unconfirmed sources and rumors, Michael Gandolfini could very well portray the character of Richard Fisk and be an essential character in the near future. It may even be possible that he would ally himself with Charlie Cox’s Daredevil to take down Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk. There are some reports of Daredevil: Born Again being Disneyfied and made PG-13 by the new CEO Bob Iger but let’s hope it’s not true.

It was reported by Grace Randolph (American reporter) that the upcoming series Daredevil: Born Again might get toned down a bit. According to her tweet, the newly appointed CEO of Disney Bob Iger is not a fan of the grittiness and darkness of Matt Murdock.

The people reacted negatively to the tweet while many cried for the ex-CEO Bob Chapek to be reinstated. Let’s hope for our sakes that the rumor turns out to be false and Daredevil is just as dark and gritty as before. The upcoming series will bring in Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Michael Gandolfini.

Daredevil: Born Again is slated for a release date in the spring of 2024.
