For the first time since Netflix's Daredevil ended in 2018, the Marvel hero will reunite with supervillain The Kingpin in the upcoming series Echo. Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio are set to reprise their roles as Daredevil and The Kingpin, respectively, in the Disney+ drama.
The move to reunite Daredevil and The Kingpin is one of many Marvel has made to tie various aspects of the MCU together, weaving actors from canceled series into new shows and movies. Cox previously reprised his role as Daredevil's alter ego, blind attorney Matt Murdoch, in Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2021. Around the same time, D'Onofrio returned to the MCU as The Kingpin in Disney+'s series Hawkeye.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney+'s Echo may feature other familiar faces beyond Cox and D'Onofrio: sources say the series will feature a plot line in which Daredevil seeks out a former ally, a move that could bring Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) into the Disney+ fold.
Echo is a Hawkeye spinoff starring Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez. The series follows Maya as she returns to her hometown, where she must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots, and embrace the meaning of family and community. The show is set to premiere in 2023.
All three seasons of Daredevil are available to stream on Disney+.
