If Marvel Studios intends to stick with the established Netflix canon, then Ben Barnes not returning as Jigsaw makes sense — his death was pretty definitive. However, for fan favorites Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), who were both still very much alive at the end of the third and final season of “Daredevil,” things are a bit more confusing. As two of Matt Murdock’s closest allies, one would have to imagine that they’re due for big returns to the Marvel spotlight. As things currently stand, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
After revealing Jon Bernthal’s return to the role of the Punisher, The Hollywood Reporter noted that it’s not expected that Henson and Woll will come back to their respective characters for “Daredevil: Born Again.” That means that either Page and Nelson won’t factor into the story at all, or Marvel Studios is looking to recast these supporting staples. Either way, it’s a bold choice for a series that, for the most part, has kept the majority of MCU fans on its good side. We’ll just have to wait and see what the show has in store.
“Daredevil: Born Again” aims to debut on Disney+ in 2024 with 18 episodes for subscribers to enjoy.
