‘Wednesday’ Actor Hunter Doohan Rumored to Join Marvel’s ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ Disney+ Series

Wednesday star Hunter Doohan has been rumored to have joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming “Daredevil: Born Again” series at Disney+.

The news comes from The Cosmic Circus which reports: We have recently received word that Hunter Doohan, known for his remarkable performance in the Netflix series Wednesday, is set to join the MCU in Daredevil: Born Again. According to this new information we’ve received, Doohan has already been filming for the show in New York.  At this time, there is no word on his role or who he may be portraying. However, according to this new source, Doohan may have a substantial role in the show, granted the amount of time he has spent filming for the show.

The outlet does point out that they have “checked with several sources who could not corroborate this information at this time. However, this does have a certain level of credibility based on other factors, and we felt it was worth sharing with you today.”

As always, since nothing has been confirmed by Marvel or Disney, we will treat this as a rumor for now.

“Daredevil: Born Again” is an Original Disney+ series that will star Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio.

Cox originally played Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the Marvel series on Netflix from 2015 to 2018.  He also appeared in the spinoff series, The Defenders. Most recently his character had a cameo appearance in Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home and She-Hulk Attorney at Law.

Vincent D’Onofrio who played Wilson Fisk in the original “Daredevil” series recently reprised his role as Kingpin, in the Disney+ series Hawkeye.  The two will also reprise their roles in the upcoming Echo series on Disney+ which will arrive on Disney+ on November 29, 2023.

Recently it was confirmed that Jon Bernthal will also be reprising his role as Frank Castle aka The Punisher in the series.  Bernthal first played the character in the second season of Netflix’s original Daredevil series which spawned “The Punisher” series which ran for two seasons 2017-19.

Sopranos prequel actor Michael Gandolfini (The Many Saints of Newark) has joined the cast of Born Again in a major role and Margarita Levieva (The Deuce) and Sandrine Holt (American Gigolo) have also boarded the series. Holt will reportedly play Vanessa Fisk, the wife of Wilson Fisk. Arty Froushan (Carnival Row) has been reportedly cast to play Harry, one of the main characters opposite Cox and D’Onofrio. Nikki M. James (The Book of Mormon) and Michael Gaston (Chicago P.D., Mayor of Kingstown) have also been cast in undisclosed roles.

Clark Johnson (EvilBosch) is also set to recur and direct two episodes.  Director Michael Cuesta (Dexter, Homeland) will helm the first episode.

Filming on the project is currently underway and is expected to continue through November 15, 2023. It was previously revealed that the project will be filming under the working title “Out the Kitchen” under the production company Blind Faith Productions LLC.

The series will be written and executive produced by Covert Affairs creators Matt Corman and Chris Ord.

Season 1 will consist of 18 episodes and is slated to premiere on Disney+ in Spring 2024.
