Nikki M. James has joined Marvel’s Disney Plus series Daredevi: Born Again.
Deadline has revealed that Tony Award-winning actress Nikki M. James (The Book of Mormon and Les Misérables) is the latest addition to the cast of Daredevi: Born Again as the series continues preparing to begin production in New York City. The identity of her Born Again character is being kept under wraps, as with most Marvel Cinematic Universe casting news.
Born Again reunites Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk for the first time since the shocking cancellation of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. The two have already made appearances in Marvel Cinematic Universe projects like Spider-Man: No Way Home, Hawkeye and She-Hulk. The Daredevil revival consists of eighteen episodes.

Born Again is rumored to feature the return of Matt Murdock’s best friend and business partner Foggy Nelson, played by Elden Henson.
