New ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ Set Video
You can watch the latest set video from Marvel Studios’ 2024 Disney+ series Daredevil: Born Again thanks to an Instagram user known as @mickmicknyc, watch the full video below.
The Instagram user’s post is captioned “Daredevil: Born Again NYC Filming Set March 20, 2023”, confirming that the following set video was filmed just yesterday, around the same time that additional set images and videos emerged online from the same location being used for the filming of the Charlie Cox-led Daredevil reboot.
Which Actor Is Playing Young Wilson Fisk?
Sadly, details as to who these young actors are, such as names, have yet to be announced by the cast and crew of Daredevil: Born Again, with hopes from fans online that confirmation as to who is playing out these scenes will be made soon.
Judging by yesterday’s report of a “Young Wilson Fisk” filming scenes with “neighbourhood bullies”, it looks like the actor with the rucksack and dark long hair may be playing the young version of Kingpin, with the set location reportedly being set sometime in the 1970s.
The ‘Ramones’ Poster Breakdown
Images from the set such as posters promoting the band the Ramones may confirm the time period alone, as the Ramones originally formed their band in 1974, which mixed with the various 1970s designs from the clothing to the cars being used seemingly confirms the flashback scenes will indeed be set sometime in the mid-1970s.
‘New! Bubblicious’ Poster May Confirm Time Setting
The bubble gum brand Bubblicious is featured in these new set images for Daredevil: Born Again, with a poster labelled with “New! Bubblicious” being spotted, possibly revealing that these flashbacks will be set in 1977, per Wikipedia.
More Set Videos Surface Online
A rehearsal video from Twitter user @kucksuelwhan features the actor portraying a young Wilson Fisk walking down the streets of NYC repeatedly nervously looking behind his back. This is presumably right before the scene the “bullies” strike, as reported before here.
