It was recently announced that Marvel Studios would be doing a complete creative rework for Daredevil: Born Again on Disney Plus. In the wake of a social media frenzy, Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio weighs in on the situation.
The announcement that Daredevil: Born Again had let go of most of its creative staff caused immediate uproar on social media. Some fans were happy the Disney Plus show is taking its time to be good, while others have been calling for Kevin Feige to be fired. In the midst of the chaos, Vincent D’Onofrio, who stars as Kingpin in the series, assured fans to relax and trust the process:
What Vincent D’Onofrio says holds some truth. While many Marvel Studios fans conflate reshoots with a bad product, the opposite if often the case in the industry. Some of the best projects in Hollywood have had broad creative reworks when things simply weren’t working. So while fans may worry about the fate of Daredevil: Born Again, they should rest assured that it’s not going to be thrown haphazardly onto Disney Plus with no passion behind it.
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”.

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.
