Marvel Has Reportedly Cast A ‘Wednesday’ Star As ‘Daredevil Born’ Again Villain Muse

Has Marvel found its Muse?

Muse has long been rumored to be one of the main villains of Daredevil: Born Again, and recent set footage from the streets of New York has all but confirmed these reports. A figure bearing a striking resemblance to the sinister Marvel villain has been captured on camera, setting the stage for what promises to be a thrilling showdown in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen.

The casting of Muse has been a hot topic among fans for several months. Hunter Doohan, known for his work on Netflix’s Wednesday and Showtime’s Your Honor, has been at the center of this speculation. Despite initial uncertainty following announcements of a creative overhaul for Marvel’s Disney Plus series, there were whispers about a potential recasting for Muse.

Contrary to these rumors, Hollywood insider “CanWeGetToast” has confirmed that Doohan is indeed set to bring Muse to life in Daredevil: Born Again. Doohan’s previous work, especially his portrayal of Tyler Galpin in Wednesday, demonstrates his ability to navigate complex characters, making him a perfect choice for the role of Muse.

Who is Muse in the pages of Marvel Comics?

Created by Charles Soule and Ron Garney, Muse made a memorable debut in 2016’s Daredevil (Vol. 5) #11. As a sociopathic serial killer and a minor antagonist in Marvel Comics, Muse presents a unique challenge to Daredevil. His belief in transforming victims into art through their blood and remains has marked him as a disturbing figure in the comic book world and makes him an ideal fit for the gritty tone of Daredevil.

Given the casting of Hunter Doohan and the shift to television, Daredevil: Born Again is likely to delve deeper into Muse’s backstory and possibly his true identity. The upcoming series presents an excellent opportunity to explore the villain’s complexities and motivations, offering audiences a closer look at what drives his heinous acts.

Marvel Studios recently undertook a significant creative shift for Daredevil: Born Again. The change was driven by internal criticism of the show’s initial focus on the legal drama surrounding Matt Murdock, which delayed his appearance as Daredevil until the fourth episode. The revamped series is now expected to emphasize more action and violence, aligning it closer to the tone and style of the Netflix version of Daredevil.

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!
