Marvel has reportedly cast a Sopranos prequel star for Daredevil: Born Again on Disney+.
Even though Marvel Studios is known to experiment with genre and storytelling on Disney+, 2024’s Daredevil: Born Again is shaping up to be an MCU series like none other.
Not only is it Marvel Studios’ first reboot of a Marvel Television series, but Born Again boasts an eighteen-episode season, the longest of any Marvel Studios series to date, and a potential R-rating.
In addition, both of its confirmed stars, Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofio, have already made appearances in MCU projects, such as Hawkeye, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
While speculation for who will be joining the former Netflix stars is in full swing, a new report claims Born Again has cast a Marvel newcomer in a significant role.
