Newly released set photos for Daredevil: Born Again give a hint about the potential appearance of a character from Netflix’s Marvel TV show in the upcoming Disney Plus series, possibly marking their entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

Daredevil: Born Again set photos continue to excite fans of Netflix's Marvel slate of shows as yet another prominent character appears to have jumped from the Netflix continuity to the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon by joining the cast of the upcoming show.

Daredevil was easily the centerpiece of Netflix's interconnected Marvel universe, tying together other shows like Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage that would eventually converge for the miniseries The Defenders. While successful, the shows were canceled by Netflix, but a deal required Disney to hold off on using the characters featured in Netflix's shows for two years, starting in 2018. By 2020, Disney had honored that obligation to its competition, and fans clamored for Charlie Cox's Daredevil to return since he wasn’t off limits anymore.

This fan outcry would be answered with the announcement of Daredevil: Born Again, which has since seen a radical shift from the original idea after MCU boss Kevin Feige fired several Daredevil: Born Again creatives to save the show due to his dissatisfaction. Since then, the show has picked up, and fans have been greeted with good news concerning returning cast members from the Netflix era. Most recently, New York City-based illustrator Tristan, who has recently given BTS looks at the production of Daredevil: Born Again, took to X to post a few pictures showing marked trailers from the set, with fans immediately gravitating to one labeled Brett and interpreting it as confirmation that Netflix-era character Detective Sergeant Brett Mahoney will join the MCU as part of the cast.

Mahoney, an officer of the New York City Police Department portrayed on the Netflix shows by Royce Johnson, featured extensively in Daredevil and appeared in Jessica Jones and even The Punisher series. Known for helping Matt Murdock's law firm, Nelson and Murdock, with legal matters and forming an uneasy alliance with Daredevil, Mahoney played a prominent part in the Netflix shows, including taking the Kingpin to task via the legal system on more than one occasion. Despite this prominent role and his connection with Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin (who was the first additional cast member drafted from the Netflix series), it seems a lot of fans weren’t exactly expecting him to join the MCU, especially after Marvel Studios seemingly made Daredevil and Jessica Jones non-canon to the MCU, alongside the other Defenders series.

The inclusion of Mahoney, a character that has no superhero alter ego but played a key role in the pivotal legal proceedings of the original series, can be seen as a good sign that the show is on the right path in terms of keeping the more grounded elements of the Netflix shows front and center. While the potential return of Jessica Jones and news of a new Iron Fist for the MCU have been the talk of the town recently, Mahoney's seeming inclusion has gotten fans talking about their less prominent favorites from the shows that could also potentially return.
