Next month, Marvel Studios takes a step into the mature zone with its brand new series, “Echo”, which spotlights Maya Lopez as Wilson Fisk’s criminal empire pursues her. When the journey brings her home, she must confront her own family and legacy. 

The upcoming series features the return of Charlie Cox as Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio as the Kingpin, having both previously starred together in the former Netflix Original series, “Daredevil”.  

The two actors are also involved in filming a brand new series for Disney+, “Daredevil: Born Again”, which is currently going through a creative restructuring following the disruption caused by the writer’s and actor’s strike.  This led to Marvel replacing the creative team, with Dario Scardapane, becoming the showrunner/writer on the series, with Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead directing the rest of the series.

“Daredevil: Born Again” will consist of eighteen episodes, and while filming on the first half is completed, the directing and creative team will try to reuse as much footage as possible, but with filming expected to resume in 2024, the original release date for 2024 is now expected to be shifted back to 2025.

During a recent interview with Vincent D’Onofrio on the BroBible’s Post Credit Podcast, the Kingpin actor was asked about the purpose of the new Marvel Spotlight banner, which “Echo” will also be the first series to released under, which will focus on more grounded stories and be able to be less connected to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

“For sure.  That’s my opinion, I imagine it would be. Nobody has said, ‘Hey, did you know this? This is happening’ — nobody said that. But it is of the same tone and feel [as Echo]. The attention that the big bosses are giving to it is extraordinary and Charlie [Cox] and I are just amazed at how much they care about this series. I can’t imagine it being treated any less.”

“Daredevil”, along with the other former Netflix Original series, all had a mature tone, which is what fans are expecting from the upcoming “Daredevil: Born Again” series.   Marvel Studios is also set to release two new films, “Deadpool 3” and “Blade”, which will be rated R, showcasing that there are times that stories need to be able to go beyond the PG-13 rating, that the majority of Marvel titles recently have been.

Many superhero fans have become overwhelmed by the number of shows and films released, especially as the Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded over the last fifteen years, and hopefully, the new Marvel Spotlight brand will allow audiences to feel a little more connected to these new titles, knowing they don’t need to watch every single film or show to keep up.

In the meantime, you can check out the Kingpin in “Hawkeye” and “Daredevil”, both of which are available to stream on Disney+ now.
