First seen on the screens as Daredevil in 2015, Charlie Cox found his place in the superhero universe. The Netflix show was canceled just after a short span of three seasons, much to the fans’ disappointment as they had grown used to The Man Without Fear and the rest of the cast. However, a short cameo in Spider-Man No Way Home came as a ray of hope for the fans. Charlie Cox also made a cameo in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and is now all set for his own show, Daredevil: Born Again.
While not much is known about the upcoming show focusing on lawyer Matt Murdock, fans were curious about what the cast for the new show would look like and if actors from the Netflix series will be showing up. Now, Charlie Cox himself has expressed that he too hopes his ex-co-stars join forces with him once again.
Charlie Cox Calls his Co-Stars the Heartbeat of the Show
While appearing at the German Comic Con Winter Edition, actor Charlie Cox talked about his co-stars in Netflix’s Daredevil, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson. While he didn’t know what was going to be of the previous cast, he expressed hope that Woll and Henson might be a part of the revamped series, calling them the “Heartbeat” of Daredevil.
“With Matt Murdock, I don’t think it gets more deep than Karen Page, and shout out to the wonderful Deborah Ann Woll, who’s just amazing. I was saying this to Elden yesterday…I don’t know what’s going to happen with the other characters in the new show, but I know for a fact that Elden and Deborah were the heartbeat of what we did before and the show is a success because of them.”
While Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio who played the character of Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin in the Netflix series are confirmed to return for Born Again, nothing more is known about the previous cast returning. Once it was rumored that Henson would be reprising his role as Foggy Nelson, however, no official confirmations have been made as of yet. On the other hand, Woll would apparently love to play Karen again, should the team approach her. She stated that she loves the character and telling the character’s story, but in the end, she believes that it’s up to the creators what they want to do with the show.
Daredevil Fans Love Karen and Foggy
Sure, fans of a franchise have a hard time having a common viewpoint. However, when it comes to the Daredevil franchise, fans can’t help but agree on one point – Karen and Foggy need to come back. Since the vigilante Daredevil is all set to return to the screens now, it’s only fair that his partners in crime come along with him. Each of the two characters’ relationship with Matt Murdock had created a separate fan base, while most fans shipped Matt and Karen together, a lot were Team Foggy, too.
I want Matt and Karen to get back together. They are by far my favorite Marvel Couple in the MCU.

I think it's more likely they'll be back than not, but if it turns out they don't bring them back i might just not watch the show tbh

Charlie Cox's Matt mudock/daredevil is one of my favorite live action superhero depictions but agreed….foggy and karen were crucial to my love for the show

It’s quite clear that the fans love the two characters, so much so that some might not even watch the Disney+ show if they do not show up. In one possibility, Born Again could have Karen and Foggy, but with completely new actors playing them. This might be a bad idea as Henson and Woll have already made their place in the hearts of Daredevil fans. Someone else playing the characters just might not receive the same warmth from the fans.
Daredevil: Born Again is expected to release in early 2024. Till then, you can stream Daredevil on Disney+.
