When we talk about the best shows that Netflix offered to its audiences, among Stranger Things, Lucifer, and The Witcher, we could often find the name of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil among them. The Netflix Original was made in collaboration with Marvel Television and was one of the most successful shows that the streaming giant had seen in terms of viewership and fandom among others. But one day, Netflix just abruptly decided to end the show, which upset the fans who wanted more of Matt Murdock.
But when Marvel Studios brought the MCU to the smaller screen on their Disney+ OTT platform, they decided to bring the devil of Hell’s Kitchen back in their series Daredevil: Born Again with the original cast.
But it seems like Marvel Studios has another idea for some of the characters. In a recent interview on Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum podcast, via ScreenRant, actress Deborah Ann Woll has revealed that the reboot has not called her to play Karen Page from the original series.
Daredevil: Born Again Will Not Have Karen Page?
Charlie Cox had one of the best portrayals of the crime-fighting devil vigilante in Netflix’s Daredevil, and the fans loved this version of a superhero who lives under the shadows and works on the street level to solve crimes and bring down crime lords, something that other Marvel Television shows did not put much focus on. But when Netflix decided to cancel all the shows from Marvel Television on the platform, it just felt wrong to see it go away.
But luckily, Marvel Studios decided to step in and take charge of Marvel Television and incorporate it into the MCU, which meant the return of the devil in Daredevil: Born Again. The return of Charlie Cox to play the character was a piece of phenomenal news among the fandom, and fans were eager to watch the cast back. But apparently, one key character still was missing. Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page was one of the integral parts of the show, but fans were doubtful about whether she was returning back in the reboot, which she clarified in an interview. She said:
“I can say this: they have not called me yet. So as of now, I am not a part of it. I would be thrilled to get to be a part of it. They know where I am. Like I said, I love the character Karen Page. I love telling that story. I feel like I have more to say. But it is up to them what kind of story that they want to tell.”
As it stands, the original series was not a part of the MCU, which lead fans to believe that there might be slight alterations to the story, as well as the cast of the show, which might lead to some characters being missing from the original show.
What To Expect From Daredevil: Born Again?
The incorporation of the future show has already been underway. With the appearance of the Kingpin Wilson Fisk in Hawkeye, and Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, where we see Jennifer Walters and Matt Murdock spend a night of physical intimacy together, we can assume that all these characters will have some kind of influence over the theme of the upcoming show. As for what the show would be based around, we can only assume what it will be, and how it ties its events with the bigger picture in the MCU.
Daredevil: Born Again, coming to Disney+ in 2024.
