The production crew for Daredevil: Born Again were spotted filming Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk scenes earlier on Monday in New York City. The Kingpin actor also teased Jon Bernthal’s Punisher return while confirming a season 2 for Charlie Cox‘s Matt Murdock-led series. However, Marvel insiders note the 18-episode order for season 1 could likely be divided into two parts.
Wilson Fisk looks dapper in the set photo from Daredevil: Born Again. The ongoing filming has offered several new looks at the Disney Plus series including Cox’s first look as Matt Murdock, the blind lawyer. But last week, the crew was spotted shooting flashback sequences for Young Wilson Fisk along with extras as his neighborhood bullies.
The new set image showcasing Kingpin in the black suit has caught fans’ attention for featuring him slimmer than his appearance in Hawkeye. While the menacingly large MCU villain captures the same charisma from the Netflix iteration – the 63-year-old star does not seem to be donning a huge fatsuit.
Some insiders noted that Marvel may have opted for a slimmer fat suit to help ease out the process for D’Onofrio while donning the role since filming for Born Again is expected to go on for a lengthy 8 months. Though fans also think it may be a flashback scene showing Wisk from his early youthful days. Furthermore, standing beside Wisk is Arty Froushan, the Carnival Row is expected to play a major role with some speculating he could portray MCU’s Bullseye.
So he was a bit bigger in Hawkeye. Much bigger in Echo and now normal size. I'd like for Kingpin to be huge but I understand with 8 months shooting it's not gonna be easy for D'Onofrio to wear a big fatsuit all the time https://t.co/1TfytdxaWh

Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin meeting Charlie Cox’s Daredevil would be a sight to be remembered for Marvel fans that have been missing the two character’s interaction since the Netflix series’ cancellation. But Kingpin will also be reuniting with another violent Marvel character, The Punisher (Jon Bernthal).
Speaking to Newsweek, D’Onofrio confirmed that Frank Castle plays “a major part of the show”. In addition, the actor also teased “gigantic payoffs” by season 2. The mention of a second segment for Daredevil: Born Again has Devil of Hell’s Kitchen fans in excitement. But it’s also possible Marvel Studios could divide the 18 episodes to release nine episodes in season 1 and follow up season 2 with the same count.
There have also been rumors of Daredevil: Born Again potentially taking place during the Blip after a set picture showed Matt Murdock walking the streets during the Thanos snap timeline.
Daredevil: Born Again is scheduled for a Spring 2024 release on Disney Plus.
