Productions of ‘Born Again’ and ‘The Penguin’ suspended until WGA strike

EXCLUSIVE: Daredevil: Born Again And The Penguin have finally thrown in the towel: Deadline has learned that the Disney+ series and drama Max will remain on hiatus until the WGA strike is over – whenever that happens.

New York-based writers have regularly picked up the Marvel series daredevil outside its base in Silvercup East. Production has been halted several times on the drama, most recently on June 12. Production on the revival had already been interrupted by the sunrise picket when members of Teamster Local 817 and IATSE Locals 829 and 52 refused to cross the line. He was then suspended for the rest of the week.

It’s been pretty much the same since. The Penguin, The Batman spin-off that has also been repeatedly targeted by WGA East picketers.

Daredevil: Born Again, which is filming in and around New York, is three months into an eight-month shoot on a new 18-episode season for Disney+. Written and produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord, who cannot provide on-set writing services due to the strike, the new episode centers on Charlie Cox’s Daredevil aka Matt Murdock, lawyer by day and crime fighter the night. Vince D’Onofrio reprises his role as mob boss Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin.

The Penguin is by Matt Reeves. The eight-part drama sees Colin Farrell reprise his villainous Batman while Cristin Milioti plays female lead Sofia Falcone. The series hails from Warner Bros. Television and DC Studios.
