“Yes I do not know. But my instinct is based on the name of the show, it’s called Born Again, the fact… that Kevin [Feige] speaking of it being a season 1 and not a season 4, my feeling is this is a whole new deal you know?

Cox also spoke about his upcoming reunion with Vincent D’Onofrio in the Disney+ series, noting that it’s a “significant occasion” if he is allowed to walk with the actor on the set:
Screenrant: “Reunited with Kingpin and Vincent [D’Onofrio]?”
Cox: “Yes, my dear, dear friend and nemesis.”
Screenrant: “…How does that feel…how excited are you to go from head to toe?”
Cox: “Sometime in the future there will come a day when I’m in New York, I get to work, I put on my costume and I go on set with him, and that’s going to be a momentous occasion. I’m so emotional just thinking about it. Like we haven’t had that since we shot the scene at the end of Season 3 where the big fight and emotional dialogue that we have hasn’t been on set together since. So, it’s going to be six years, so…I can’t wait to share this moment with this lovely man on set, delving deep into these characters and writing great stories.”
