Michael Gandolfini Cast in Disney+ Series, ‘Daredevil: Born Again’

Published

on

WandaVision was not the first Marvel show under the guise of Kevin Feige that was released. Daredevil set up a seemingly separate television universe for Marvel properties and characters on Netflix that fans and critics alike fawned over. The series starring Charlie Cox as Daredevil/Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin/Wilson Fisk is beloved by many, so much so, that those characters have now shown up in separate Disney+ streaming series as well. 

Back at this past year’s Comic-Con, it was announced that an 18-episode series, Daredevil: Born Again would be headed to Disney+ with Cox and D’onofrio reprising their roles. Now, we have news on some new cast members being brought to the show. According to Deadline, Michael Gandolfini (The Many Saints of Newark, Cherry) is set to join the cast of Daredevil: Born Again which will release on Disney+ in Spring 2024.

There are no details on who Gandolfini will be playing in the series, but some have speculated he may be replacing Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson on the show, while Deadline reports it’s possible that he plays a character named “Liam” from Staten Island. However, his character has been said to be a “major” one for the show so keep that in mind. This will be most likely be Gandolfini’s biggest part since portraying his late father, James Gandolfini’s iconic character of Tony Soprano in the prequel film, The Many Saints of Newark, which follows young Tony navigating New Jersey and the gangster scene years after he becomes the legendary crime boss from the HBO series, The Sopranos.

Daredevil: Born Again is written and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord (Covert Affairs). Gandolfini will next appear in the anthology series, Extrapolations for AppleTV+ alongside an ensemble cast that also includes Tobey Maguire, Forest Whitaker and Marion Cotillard among many others. Additionally, he’ll also appear in Ari Aster’s upcoming film, Disappointment Blvd. due to release in 2023.

X-Men ’97 Review | Nostalgic, Epic & Marvelous!

Published

on

X-Men '97 (Disney)

Get ready for action-packed adventure, many surprise cameos and a storyline that takes

Plot

A band of mutants use their uncanny gifts to protect a world that hates and fears them; they’re challenged like never before, forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future.

X-Men ’97 (Disney)

Review

X-Men ’97 is a revival of the classic 1990s animated television series. The storyline picks up directly after the events of the original series, maintaining continuity and preserving the beloved elements that made the original a hit show back in the day. Many of the original voice cast members have returned, including Cal Dodd as Wolverine, Lenore Zann as Rogue, George Buza as Beast, Alison Sealy-Smith as Storm and Adrian Hough as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler, which adds a layer of originality and contributes to the overall nostalgia of the television show​. Here I’m feeling like a little kid again, watching the show on a Saturday morning. I was 7 years old when it was on television in the early mornings, and it still brings back fond memories.

There were a number of new stars who joined the show such as Ray Chase who replaced Norm Spencer as Cyclops, Jennifer Hale who replaced Catherine Disher as Jean Grey, Holly Chou who replaced Alyson Court as Jubilee, A.J. LoCascio as Gambit, Matthew Waterson as Magneto, J.P. Karliak as Morph, Isaac Robinson-Smith as Bishop, Ross Marquand as Professor Charles Xavier and Gui Agustini as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot.

X-Men ’97 (Disney)

The series starts off in a world where the X-Men grapple with the loss of Professor Charles Xavier. Amidst all the chaos and uncertainty, Magneto rises to the occasion and becomes the new leader of the X-Men. This provides additional drama and the team dynamics is frequently tested with the new leadership. While dealing with the new leadership dynamics the X-Men finds themselves still dealing with people who would stop at nothing to end all mutants. The storyline doesn’t hold back on the action sequences and themes such as grief, loss and acceptance are touched on throughout the series.

The trailer of the show doesn’t spoil anything for the viewer, and I highly encourage you to watch every intro and try to spot any new changes. The show provides many cameos and easter eggs, keeping my hopes alive of a potential crossover.

The story ends with a twist, leaving you hungry for the next season, and as any Marvel movie or television show would have it, a mid-credits scene to whet your appetite for what’s to come. If you are new to X-Men you can still jump in and watch the television series, but I highly recommend watching the original series to get you up to date with most of the lore and history of the X-Men.

X-Men ’97 keeps the legacy of our favorite mutants alive with a well-written story that is filled with emotion, surprises and promises of more adventures.

Thank you Beau DeMayo for an eXcellent story! I rate this show a 5 out of 5!

Will we skip the intro song? No! I don’t think we will. Make sure to catch the show on Disney Plus!
