Fans of the Netflix series Daredevil have been sorely disappointed Deborah Ann Woll Apparently, she won’t be reprising her role as Karen Page in the new MCU series Daredevil: Born Again, especially with the likes of Jon Bernthal returning as The Punisher and others such as Vincent D’Onofrio continuing his role as Kingpin. So if Wall never appears as a Marvel character again, surely the next logical step would be for her to veer off to DC Studios instead, right?
The actress was asked the very question of whether she would consider becoming a part of James Gunn’s DCU in the future during a recent appearance at ICCC Nashville (via The Direct), where other stars like D’Onofrio also appeared. While her response was in line with many others who had been asked similar questions, Woll managed to sneak in a Ghostbusters A reference that pretty much sums up the feeling about which side of the comic book coin many can land on. She said:
“I don’t know, are they allowed to do that? Am I allowed to cross streams. I feel like that would be very dangerous. Yes, there are a few people who can do that, but I don’t know if I’m one of those lucky few.” I know nothing about DC. You know, that was so cool being a part of Daredevil, and I think it was such a unique little corner of the MCU that felt really special. I’m really happy with what I have, no plans for me yet on either side of the comic book world, but I’m so grateful for the experience I’ve had.”
How much rivalry is there between Marvel and DC?
For many people, Marvel and DC are locked in an eternal civil war in the comic book universe, constantly fighting for supremacy in a decades-long battle. Actually, that’s far from the truth according to DC Studios’ new co-CEO James Gunn, who recently debunked the whole notion that the two comic giants’ movie studios are constantly in competition with each other. He said:
“People have this weird belief that Marvel and DC hate each other or in some way are polar opposites. But it’s not the truth. I mean, listen, man, our job is the same. We want to get people into theaters to see movies. That’s what matters. And I think we work together.” “To do that. The better the Marvel movies, the better for the DC movies. The better the DC movies, the better for the Marvel movies. There isn’t just one winner. There can be two winners because it matters who goes to see your movies and who enjoys them.”
However, when it comes to fans, there are many who still take each victory of their favorite comic book superhero movie producer over another, and no doubt they will continue to do so when Gunn’s new DCU begins shooting in 2025. Whether it will be Deborah An Woll is a part of any of those movies, which is something we and we can, just wait and see.
