Vincent D’Onofrio promised fans that Daredevil: Born Again is significantly different from Netflix’s take on Matt Murdock.

Speaking to ComicBook, the acclaimed actor explained that the upcoming Disney+ series, which will officially be Daredevil’s first solo Marvel Cinematic Universe project, is approaching the world and characters from a new direction. “I think it’s definitely a new show. It’s not the Netflix show. It’s definitely a new show,” the Wilson Fisk actor said. “I mean, all I can say is that Charlie [Cox] and I are not bored. We are having a great time.” D’Onofrio continued to discuss his co-star Charlie Cox, insisting that he’s giving it his all.

“We’re really just delivering. It’s a lot of work. Charlie’s amazing because he has to do all the stunts and stuff, so he’s in constant training and learning different things,” the actor adds. “But the scenes are great. I’m trying to skirt around specifics, but I can only say that it is a different show and it feels like a different show.” Born Again will see D’Onofrio reprise his role as the MCU’s most feared crimelord The Kingpin who is expected to battle Daredevil as Matt Murdock wishes to purge the villain’s influence from Hell’s Kitchen.

Daredevil Lives Again

As for how Born Again will differ from Netflix’s Daredevil, many fans are concerned the reboot will shy away from the original’s brutal and oftentimes graphic violence to stick within the MCU’s preferred PG-13 rating. D’Onofrio previously addressed these concerns, noting that he was initially worried about the same thing. “It was a concern of mine too because the Netflix show was so raw and brutal,” he said. “All I can say […] is that if you look at the most brutal stuff that Marvel is doing, which is few and far between but it’s there, it will be there for us too.”

Beyond Cox and D’Onofrio, many MCU enthusiasts are currently speculating who else could return to the series. Marvel Studios has confirmed that Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as The Punisher, a performance he originated in Daredevil before spinning off into his own series. Some hypothesize that Mike Colter, known as Luke Cage in the Netflix shows, may also return given that Born Again was confirmed to be shooting in Harlem, the home turf of the aforementioned Defender.

Daredevil: Born Again is aiming to release in the spring of 2024.
