Starring alongside Charlie Cox, both Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson played significant roles in the original Netflix series.

The revelation comes after the show recently went through a creative overhaul. Although the series commenced filming in March 2023, the overhaul took place after Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, reviewed the footage and did not find it adequate.

It prompted the replacement of original showrunners Matt Corman and Chris Ord with Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Dario Scardapane, known for directing The Punisher, has also joined Marvel’s vision to make Born Again one of the best MCU shows.
