Charlie Cox Can’t Wait To Reunite Daredevil & Kingpin In New MCU Show

Charlie Cox can’t wait to reunite with Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series, Daredevil: Born Again. After portraying him for three seasons of his self-titled Netflix series, Cox returned as Daredevil during Spider-Man: No Way Home as the blind lawyer, Matt Murdock, who gets Peter Parker’s charges dropped. D’Onofrio’s villainous Wilson Fink has also appeared in the MCU during the Disney+ Hawkeye series as the big bad who is also uncle to Maya Lopez/Echo. However, this is only expected to be the beginning of Daredevil and Kingpin’s time in the MCU.


At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, it was confirmed that Cox would be getting his own Daredevil series as a part of the MCU’s Phase 5. Officially subtitled Born Again, the series will start streaming in Spring 2024 and run for 18 episodes on Disney+. Other than Cox, the reboot is confirmed to include D’Onofrio reprising his role on Kingpin. Production listings point to the MCU’s Daredevil series planning to begin production in May 2023.

During an exclusive interview with Screen Rant at this past weekend’s D23 Expo, Cox expressed his excitement about reuniting with D’Onofrio on the MCU’s Daredevil series. Cox described the specific day when he arrives on set in New York, suits up in costume, and reunites with D’Onofrio. Read what he said below:

“Vincent, my dear, dear friend and arch nemesis.There’s gonna be a day, at some point in the future, where I’m going to be in New York. I’m going to show up to work, put on my costume, and I’m going to walk on set with him. That is going to be a momentous occasion. I’m emotional just thinking about it. We haven’t had that since we shot the scene at the end of season three, where there’s the big fight and emotional dialogue that we have. We haven’t been on set together since then.

“So, it’s going to be six years. I can’t wait for that moment to be with that lovely man, on set, going back in deep into these characters and making great stories.”

Cox’s comments were made during the recent D23 Expo where footage of Kingpin’s return in the Echo series was screened for attendees. Prior reports indicate that Cox’s Daredevil will also be appearing in Echo, though it’s unknown if he will be sharing the screen with Kingpin at any point. Cox’s comments above indicate he’s not been on set with D’Onofrio since Daredevil season 3, which would suggest his character does not cross paths with Kingpin in Echo, though perhaps the franchise’s intense secrecy prevents him from discussing that. On the other hand, it is well-known that Daredevil’s next appearance will be in She-Hulk:Attorney at Law alongside the MCU’s newest super-powered lawyer, Jennifer Walters.

Though it will likely end up being his fourth MCU appearance, Cox’s Daredevil: Born Again series will carry special significance for the actor since it could mark his first reunion with D’Onofrio’s Kingpin. When the MCU series debuts in 2024, it will be six years since the two last shared the screen during season 3 of Netflix’s canceled Daredevil series, and fans are looking forward to this reunion just as much as Cox. While the wait will be about two years, audiences can look forward to their earlier appearances in She-Hulk and Echo.
