Charlie Cox is back filming scenes for Daredevil: Born Again. New set photos confirm a brand new love interest for Matt Murdock in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series.
While fans have been celebrating the recent return of old Marvel fan-favorites in Daredevil: Born Again, it’s important to remember the series will have strong supporting cast members outside them. One such character is Heather Glenn, played by Margarita Leiviva. New set photos show the character locking lips with Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, signaling a new love interest for him in the MCU.
In the comics, Heather Glenn is the former head of Glenn Industries and the girlfriend of Matt Murdock. She had a tragic life, blaming Matt for both her father’s suicide and the destruction of her company, though still eventually married him. This led to Foggy Nelson and Black Widow forging notes by Matt to break up with her, leading to her taking her own life.
It’s unlikely Daredevil: Born Again would adapt such a wild and tragic story directly from the comics. However, given the darker tone of the show compared to the rest of the MCU, it’s possible Margarita Leiviva will be able to flex her acting chops through Heather Glenn’s lesser tragedies.
What to expect from the new Daredevil series
Marvel Studios recently scrapped the entire creative team for Daredevil: Born Again due to internal criticism. The previous incarnation of the show focused mainly on the legal aspects of Matt Murdock, with the hero not suiting up until episode 4. The series is expected to go through a complete creative rework to focus more on action and violence, just like the Netflix version.
Little is known of Daredevil: Born Again, with plot details being kept under wraps. Jon Bernthal’s Punisher, Sandrine Holt, Margarita Levieva, Michael Gandolfini, Nikki M. James, and Michael Gaston are set to appear in the series opposite Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a Kingpin.
