Rumors: Hunter Doohan to Play Muse in ‘Daredevil: Born Again’

‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is one of the most talked-about upcoming MCU projects, partly due to the fan-fueled hype and partly due to its turbulent production that’s been plagued with everything from SAG-AFTRA strike to creative differences in what the showrunners wanted and what the studio wanted. 

Not much is known about the overall plot except for the fact that Daredevil will be starting a new law practice as he is trying to re-invent himself, with Kingpin, one of his greatest enemies running for mayor of New York, something that was foreshadowed in the post-credits scenes of ‘Echo.’

While it is certain that D’Onforio will make a return, he seemingly won’t be the primary villain of the show’s first season as it’s been heavily rumored for at least a couple of months that this honor will go to Muse. Muse is a villain in Marvel Comics who’s a sociopathic serial killer. He targets people, especially Inhumans, and turns their blood and gore into art. His true identity and powers are mysterious. He has a huge ego and refuses to be defeated, even risking his life to maintain control over his fate when confronted by heroes like Daredevil and Blindspot.

There were also rumors pointing in the direction that Muse would be the one to kill either Karen or Foggy, and this is what’s going to kickstart Daredevil’s transformation toward change.

Now if CanWeGetSomeToast is to be believed Hunter Doohan is almost certainly playing the villain.

This also isn’t as surprising since a month ago leak pointed in the direction that Doohan was successfully cast as the villain.

Doohan gained recognition for his role as Warren Cave in the first season of the Apple TV+ series ‘Truth Be Told’ in 2019. He later starred as Adam Desiato in the legal drama series ‘Your Honor’ in 2020. In 2022, he portrayed Tyler Galpin in the Netflix series ‘Wednesday’. In film, he has appeared in various projects including ‘Far from the Tree’ (2017), ‘Soundwave’ (2018), ‘Where We Disappear’ (2019), ‘Last Patrol on Okinawa’ (2021), and ‘Ringing Rocks’ (2022).
