Daredevil: Born Again is one of Marvel’s most anticipated series releases as it will once again see Charlie Cox‘s Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk face off in a new story. But, this time around things are going to be different.

Things have evolved into something more and the old rivalry between Murdock and D’Onofrino is “no longer enough” as the story progresses.

According to Marvel’s Head of Television, Streaming, and Animated producer Brad Winderbaum, the new series will feature a whole new “political” angle to Daredevil and Kingpin’s arch-rivalry.

While appearing as a guest on The Official Marvel Podcast, Winderbaum compared the show to X-Men ‘97: “Daredevil is incredible. It’s similar in some ways to X-Men ’97 because it’s reviving something that the fans love. But it’s taking it in a new direction.”

He went on to tease how things have changed, saying: “These characters have matured, the universe is different than it was. Things have changed, society’s changed. Matt and Wilson have changed.

“And their characters are gonna collide in ways we’ve never seen before. It’s no longer enough to try to murder each other. There’s a whole game of politics at play.”

I like the sound of all that! I just hope that it was all executed in the best possibly way in terns of script and story.

The new series is reportedly inspired by the Devil’s Reign storyline, which explores the power dynamics between Kingpin and the vigilantes who stand up against him. The story revolves around the power struggle between Daredevil and Wilson Fisk, who becomes the Mayor of New York City.

In this arc, Kingpin uses his newfound political influence to launch a crackdown on vigilantes, making their activities illegal. This leads to a fierce confrontation between Daredevil and Kingpin, with the latter using all his resources to hunt down and eliminate Daredevil and his allies.

Vincent D’Onofrio previously talked about the project, saying: “It brings in a lot of cool stories and all the collateral story that happened in those original three seasons. So we now get to start this Born Again situation with all of that history behind us and the outcome of all that history. So we’re all talking about Daredevil: Born Again in those terms now.”

The series also stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle / The Punisher, Vanessa Fisk, Michael Gandolfini, Margarita LevievaNikki M. JamesMichael GastonArty Froushan, and Clark Johnson in undisclosed roles. Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson will also reprise their roles of Karen Page and Foggy Nelson. Wilson Bethel is reprising his role as Benjamin Poindexter, aka Bullseye.

Daredevil: Born Again is currently being developed by directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who worked on both Moon Knight and Loki.
