Daredevil: Born Again may finally be back on track, as Marvel Studios has brought in one of the people behind The Punisher to helm the Disney Plus project.

Fans have been watching Marvel Studios closely ever since it was announced Daredevil: Born Again would be getting a creative reboot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel has found someone to oversee that task. Dario Scardapane, best known for his work on The Punisher and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, has been brought on as the showrunner for the MCU show.

Born Again has also landed two new directors — Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. The duo has previously worked on other MCU projects such as Loki and are now tasked with finishing the remaining episode of Daredevil: Born Again‘s first season on Disney Plus.

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”.

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.

Daredevil: Born Again currently has no release date for Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
