With filming on Disney+ & Marvel Studios' Alaqua Cox-starring "Hawkeye" spinoff series Echo having kicked off back in May, the studio and streamer are confirming some long-rumored returns about to happen. Yup, that's right! Charlie Cox will be joining the series at Matt Murdock aka Daredevil, with Vincent D'Onofrio aka Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin also boarding the project. Not only that, but The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the series will include a plotline where Daredevil is looking for a "former ally" as a possible route to bring back Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones.
Now here's a look at director Sydney Freeland's Instagram post tracing their journey from the series being announced to the announcement that they would be directing, to a look at the clapperboard with Freeland's name on it as filming gets underway (and make sure to check out the cool new logo that we hope is the final version):
