Vincent D'Onofrio says a second season of Daredevil: Born Again is already in the works.
While the upcoming Disney+ series will not grace the small screen for another year, the Law & Order: Criminal Intent actor has confirmed Marvel is planning the next instalment.
D’Onofrio, who plays Kingpin/Wilson Fisk in the series, teased plans for a second two, explaining that easter eggs have begun to be planted.
“By the second season, there are gigantic, gigantic payoffs—in the first season, too, but I can't say much about that—but the fans are gonna really get what they want. It's really quite cool to be doing it,” he told Newsweek.
Careful, Vincent, you don’t want to reveal too much and go all Tom Holland on us.
He added that the show, which is set to be released in early 2024, will be ‘very different’ to the Netflix series, which was swiftly canceled from the streaming service in 2018.
"We've only just started shooting. I think we're a couple weeks in, and the show is going to be very, very different than the Netflix show, and it's so exciting because what we're doing is quite something," he said.
"I think it's something that people are not going to expect. But, always with these Marvel old comic stories that are being revisited and reinvented by us actors, and the writers, the main thing is to answer the fans.”
Charlie Cox, who will be stepping back into the red vibranium suit as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, also teased that the series would be as ‘dark’ as the Netflix series, but probably not as 'gory'.
He told NME that pulling back the show’s violence to appeal to a broader demographic might not be such a bad thing.
As someone who is a huge fan of Daredevil himself, Cox warned, ‘this character works best when he’s geared toward a slightly more mature audience’.
“I would say to those people, we’ve done that. Let’s take the things that really worked, but can we broaden?” he added.
“Can we appeal to a slightly younger audience without losing what we’ve learned about what works?”
During San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Marvel boss Kevin Feige also announced that The Disney+ series would receive an 18-episode season.
And we can’t wait.
