Not only will Daredevil: Born Again‘s titular Netflix counterpart be canon for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series, but it appears events from The Punisher will be reference points for the anticipated show as well.
Per industry insider Alex Perez of The Cosmic Circus, key happenings from Seasons 1 and 2 of The Punisher will be mentioned in Born Again, furthering the MCU show’s continuity with connected Netflix series. According to Perez, the events from The Punisher will be “handled similarly” to how Wilson Fisk/Kingpin’s past was brought up in the recently released Echo series. Additionally, MCU fans can “expect all of [Frank] Castle’s emotional baggage” to be mentioned in Born Again.
The MCU’s Daredevil revival on Disney+ will be titled Daredevil: Born Again, and the Echo Season 1 finale may have revealed the real reason why.
The Punisher Becomes MCU Canon
Starring Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, The Punisher was a spinoff series from Netflix’s Daredevil, running for two seasons and 26 episodes between 2017 and 2019. The show chronicled the eponymous ex-Marine’s quest to uncover a larger conspiracy beyond the tragic events that happened to his family. The series featured many key flashpoints, including Frank questioning his future as The Punisher after being drawn into the murky circumstances surrounding the attempted murder of Amy Bendix. There was also Frank’s big showdown with his former best friend, Jigsaw (Ben Barnes).
After The Punisher was removed from Netflix in 2022, Disney later began streaming the series in March of last year after acquiring the rights. That same month was when Bernthal joined the cast of Born Again, news that pleased MCU fans as the character is a fan favorite among Marvel enthusiasts. In an interview with Collider earlier this month, Bernthal suggested fans relate well to his character because “there’s a little bit of Frank Castle in everybody. Bernthal added, “He exists very strongly inside me and I care about that character deeply. I also know that it’s absolutely essential that if we do it, we do it right, and we have real sacred integrity to the source material and to what is at the core of Frank.”
Despite his initial reticence to play Frank Castle again, Jon Bernthal is returning to the Punisher and making his MCU debut in Daredevil: Born Again.
Not only is The Punisher available on Disney+, but Daredevil is also, giving fans the chance to catch up with the Netflix shows before Born Again debuts. Marvel executive producer Brad Winderbaum confirmed his belief the Daredevil series is canon for Born Again. The connections from Netflix’s Daredevil appear to be strengthening more amid reports that more characters from the show will reunite with Charlie Cox’s titular antihero in Born Again.
Born Again Season 1 will reportedly be much shorter than originally intended following the show’s creative shakeup last fall. Star Vincent D’Onofrio also revealed recently the restart of filming was imminent after production was suspended due to the SAG-AFTRA strike.
Born Again is expected to premiere in 2025. Fans can stream Daredevil and The Punisher via Disney+.
