Hooray! Video proof that Foggy Nelson and Karen Page are returning for Daredevil: Born Again

It's taking a while, but Daredevil: Born Again is finally getting off the ground. Also, is actor Vincent D'Onofrio the only one who wants a Joker-style spotlight for the Kingpin?

Netflix's Daredevil's series was cancelled in 2018, a victim of Disney's attempts to make sure every Marvel show would air exclusively on its new streaming service Disney+. That sucked, because fans had grown attached to this series. They liked Charlie Cox's performance as Matt Murdock, blind lawyer by day and avenging superhero by night. They liked supporting characters Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Matt's partners in crime. And they really liked Vincent D'Onofrio's performance as the Kingpin, a villain who used his wealth and brute force to control New York City.

They liked all this so much that Disney eventually brought back Cox's take on Matt Murdock, first in Spider-Man: No Way Home and then in She-Hulk. Meanwhile, D'Onofrio's Kingpin returned in Hawkeye and most recently Echo. The both of them will be back in Daredevil: Born Again, a proper reboot of the original Netflix show.

It hasn't all been smooth sailing, though. At first, Born Again was reportedly going to be a very different sort of series. Reportedly, it was much more of a case-of-the-week sort of show, and neither Foggy nor Karen were a part of it. Disney went back to the drawing board and retooled things to make more like the Netflix series. That included bringing back Henson and Woll, recently photographed together with Cox on set.

So it's official: Foggy and Karen will be part of this new show, which will surely please fans of the old series. But there will be new elements as well:

Villains White Tiger and Muse join the cast of Daredevil: Born Again

Lots of photos are leaking from the set of Daredevil: Born Again. Here's what looks to be an actor dressed as the martial arts-themed superhero White Tiger walking into a restaurant. In the Daredevil comics, there's a storyline where Matt Murdock defends White Tiger after he's falsely accused of murder, according to Forbes. Perhaps we'll see that storyline play out in Born Again?

There's also what looks to be a photo of Muse, a violent villain who's also something of a deranged artist. Kingpin won't be the only baddie Murdock and company take on in Born Again.

Vincent D'Onofrio wants a Joker-like spotlight for Kingpin

But Kingpin, aka Wilson Fisk, is definitely the big bad of Daredevil's story. We fully expect to see him wheeling, dealing and brutally beating up people in the new series.

That said, D'Onofrio has an idea for a different kind of Kingpin story, one that takes a more realistic approach to this kind of character. "I would love to do, like a,What If...? kind of Fisk story. I would just like to explore him outside of the usual teaming up of villain and superhero," he told ComicBook.com. "I’d like to see a truly more realistic version, kind of like what they did with the Joker ... A more interior approach and you know, 10 times darker than anything we’ve done with him before. You know, exploring that would be really interesting."

He's referring there to 2019's Joker movie, where the Clown Prince of Crime was given a gritty, down-to-earth origin story that just so happened to make over a billion dollars at the box office. I'm sure D'Onofrio is up to it.

But first thing's first: although Daredevil: Born Again was originally going to come out this year, the retooling has set things back a bit. Most likely, we can expect it sometime in 2025.
