The series’ move to Disney+ also comes at a time when daredevil fans have seen beloved characters and actors return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In December, the two actors Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox returned as Wilson Fisk / Kingpin and Matt Murdock, respectively. As Kingpin faced Clint Barton and Kate Bishop in Hawk Eye on Disney+, Matt Murdock served as Peter Parker’s attorney in Spider-Man: No Coming Home.
