As soon as Disney+ bought the rights of Daredevil, Punisher, and all other Marvel characters who were under the banner of Netflix a few months back, the fans were restless to get any update about the solo Daredevil series under the MCU banner. And now after Kevil Feige revealed that Daredevil: Born Again is going to be premiered in the Spring of 2024, according to some trusted sources it is confirmed that Jon Bernthal is also set to return with his iconic character of Punisher.

The Punisher played by Jon Bernthal follows the story of Frank Castle after he seeks to take revenge and punish those who are responsible for the death of his family who was killed by some ruthless criminals.

Daredevil: Born Again is set to return the characters of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil and Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin back to action this time under the umbrella of Marvel Studios. Even though both of these characters were already introduced with Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye, we didn’t watch them in full action in MCU. Now it is confirmed that Vincent D’Onofrio is going to return in the upcoming Echo series while it is also rumored that it also has Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock before which he will also make an appearance in the She-Hulk series coming this August.

The Disney Umbrella and the PG-13 Dilemma:

Although MCU has been a giant among the movie franchises for the past few years now it has started facing criticisms for its lack of taking risks and the PG-13 obsession. While the MCU currently operates under the umbrella of Disney which can also be a reason for this issue but still it is unjustified as the other studios are constantly trying to deliver something new while Marvel is stuck in the same loop.

Fans know that characters like Daredevil and Punisher deserve a darker setting unlike the works of MCU. Not only a darker setting but also an R-Rating. The show’s themes and actions are in no way suitable for children and after what we have seen in the Netflix version, if Disney and MCU don’t follow that path, then it will lead to Mass Disappointment.

Although in the past few projects like Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness and Moonknight we have seen MCU exploring new ends regarding some violence and mature stuff, it’s still a long way to go. It can be taken as a good sign that they are doing experiments like this but it can’t be denied that a lot is about to go and it can be hoped, that they will surely improve themselves in the future.
