Charlie Cox, the actor of Disney+’s new Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) series, teased one of the more ludicrous villains he intends to use in Daredevil: Born Again.
Many believe Cox’s Daredevil series, which debuted on Netflix and featured a darker and more realistic tone throughout, will be one of the MCU’s most somber tales heading to Disney+. Wilson Fisk will be making a comeback after taking a bullet to the face in Hawkeye, so his primary opponent is likely to be Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin. However, Fisk won’t be the only character he faces up against.
Fans saw Matt Murdock and Jennifer Walters defeat Leap-Frog in Episode 8 as a result of Cox’s debut in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which had a much wilder adversary.
And if Cox has anything to say about it, those wild villains won’t even be the beginning of the battles his lawyer-turned-superhero faces.
The Strange Daredevil Reboot Villain Charlie Cox Requests
Charlie Cox, actor of the new Disney+ series Daredevil: Born Again, spoke with Metro about one of the more ludicrous villains he wants to see Daredevil face off against.
Cox especially mentioned Stilt-Man from Marvel Comics, calling him “such a silly adversary” and joking that it would be hilarious to see if Daredevil could incorporate him without losing the grounded feel of the programme:
“The one I occasionally joke about – but I probably shouldn’t, because I don’t envision a world where it’s actually realistic that he shows up in our show – but I’ve always thought it’d be funny if Stilt-Man showed up. It’s such a ludicrous superhero, such a ludicrous villain that I just think it’d be funny if we found a way of doing that without it massively denting our credibility as an authentic truthful superhero show.”

When Daredevil was She-Hulk, it was very clear how bizarre Leap-Frog and other Marvel villains could be in his world. However, it also demonstrated his ability to maintain some of the same grounded tone for which he is most well-known while blending in with a plot with larger-than-life enemies.
Although Stilt-inclusion Man’s for She-Hulk raises the possibility that he could show up in Daredevil: Born Again in 2024, it’s unknown whether he will really feature in the film. In addition, Matt Murdock would be up against something entirely different from anything he has ever encountered in the Netflix series, when Matt fought Madame Gao, the Hand, and Bullseye in addition to his encounters with the Kingpin.
With Born Again’s first season on Disney+ having an 18-episode run, Cox should be able to fully embrace the wild side of Daredevil’s comic heritage in addition to the darker and more authentic enemies he’s already faced in the past.
Prior to its spring 2024 debut on Disney+, Daredevil: Born Again will start production in February 2023.
