Production for the highly-anticipated MCU reboot of Daredevil has been ongoing in New York City, and fans have been eager for any updates on the show’s progress. Recent on-set photos have given viewers a glimpse of the cast, including Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and Margarita Levieva as his new love interest.

Now, a new photo from the set of Daredevil: Born Again has introduced audiences to a new character played by actress Nikki M. James. The photo released by People and shared on Twitter shows James alongside Cox’s Matt Murdock.

Who Is Nikki M. James’ Character?

Kirsten McDuffie And Matt Murdock

Though Marvel Studios has yet to confirm the identity of James’ character, a rumor suggests that she may be playing Kirsten McDuffie. In the comics, McDuffie is the assistant district attorney who believes that Matt Murdock is Daredevil.

Their friendship later turns romantic, and the two go on to set up their own law firm in San Francisco for a time. It remains to be seen how closely the show will follow this storyline and what role James’ character will play in Matt Murdock’s life.

Not Replacing Foggy And Karen

It’s worth noting that neither Elden Henson’s Foggy Nelson nor Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page is expected to reprise their roles in the Disney+ reboot. While some fans have speculated that James’ character may be a replacement for these characters, it’s also possible that she’s simply a new addition to the show’s legal team.

It’s clear that Marvel Studios is looking to explore the legal side of Matt Murdock’s daytime career, and James’ character may play a key role in that. As filming continues and more information is revealed, fans will no doubt be excited to learn more about the full cast of Daredevil: Born Again.
