Marvel Production Updates: ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ Season 2, ‘Avengers 6,’ More

Daredevil Born Again

The latest issue of Production Weekly is here, and you know what that means: a bunch of possibly inaccurate production dates. And this time, there’s a slew of (possible) MCU info, including updates on Avengers 6, Blade, Daredevil: Born Again Season 2, and Spider-Noir.

Our usual caveat up front here… Production Weekly is a resource for people behind the scenes to reach out about potential productions they could get jobs at. As such, the weekly very openly doesn’t vet their sources, and cuts a wide swathe that goes from confirmed info to outright rumors. Basically, they’re trying to set people up with the info they have in case there is a job. If not? Well, better luck next time.

That said, there’s a bunch this time around that seems, uh… Very specious. The only one that seems right on target is the last item below, which targets Prime Video’s Spider-Noir as starting in September in Los Angeles. With casting happening now, and a series order already given, it’s pretty much good to go.

Timewise, the second one below is Daredevil: Born Again, Season 2, which PW is saying will start shooting this Fall. Given the long, tortured production process for the first season, which doesn’t even debut until March 2025, this seems like a wild leap of faith for Marvel. Could it be in the offing, so they can turn around a second season faster while the iron is hot? Sure. And this does seem for all intents and purposes to be Daredevil Season 4, not some clean, fresh, untested property. If it’s consistent with the Netflix series, then fans will probably be into a “Season 5” as well.

Blade, meanwhile, doesn’t even have a director, and is still somehow aiming for a November start date? It’s actually shocking this is still in the offing at all. They may push ahead with it just out of momentum, but given Disney’s mandate for Marvel to do less, better, I don’t know if barreling into a half-hearted Blade movie matches up with that idea.

And the last one, which we’ll start the list with below… Avengers 6. Sure we may get a big update at San Diego Comic-Con at the end of this month, or at the D23 Expo at the beginning of August. But until then, same as with Blade… There’s no director, maybe no actors or script. Avengers is clearly a priority for Disney, so if they were going to push ahead with anything, it would be this. But we need a lot more info before we state that Avengers 5 will basically film back-to-back with Avengers 6 for the entirety of 2025.

With our commentary out of the way, let’s get into what PW teases this week:

Avengers 6, aka Avengers: Secret Wars: Filming December 2025 through June 2026 in London, for a May 7, 2027 release date. Sam Raimi or Alfonso Cuarón are noted as possible directors.

Blade: Despite all possible logical sense, still noted as filming in the UK starting November 2024 for a November 7, 2025 release date. The movie currently has no director, but Michael Starrbury and Eric Pearson are noted as writers, Matthew Libatique as DP, Jeffrey Okabayashi as first AD, and Mahershala Ali and Mia Goth are still attached as cast.

Daredevil: Born Again, Season 2: Filming Fall 2024 in New York, with Dario Scardapane as showrunner, and Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead as directors.

Spider-Noir: This is targeting a September 2024 shoot in Los Angeles. We broke down a bunch of the cast and other details earlier today, but just to recap… Brendan Gleeson and Lamorne Morris have joined Nicolas Cage in the cast. Oren Uziel and Steve Lightfoot are co-showrunners. And Harry Bradbeer will direct the first two episodes.
