Marvel’s Echo just recently finished its highly-acclaimed freshman outing on Disney Plus. New set photos from Daredevil: Born Again seem to already confirm strong ties between the two series.
While Echo has turned out to be one of the most successful first seasons of a Disney Plus series in recent memory, Marvel fans were disappointed that Charlie Cox didn’t play a bigger role as Daredevil. Yet it seems that the two characters are more connected than initially suspected, with set photos from Daredevil: Born Again confirming Kingpin’s mayoral run, which was teased at the end of Echo.
While Kingpin’s aspirations for government are clearly being carried over into Daredevil: Born Again, it’s unclear how much more connective tissue there will be between the Disney Plus shows. It’s possible this remains the series’ only connection to Echo, though hopefully, Marvel fans will see more of Charlie Cox and Alaqua Cox together in the future.
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.
