After a long wait Netflix has finally announced when season three of Marvel’s Daredevil will be released, October 19th. Along with the announcement Netflix also released a short teaser trailer. It ends with Daredevil himself saying, “Let the devil out,” which is coupled with a wicked smile.
Here’s the teaser trailer:
The series is based on the the comic story and characters that were created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett. The main characters of the series are: Charlie Cox (Daredevil aka Matt Murdock), Vincent D’Onofrio (Kingpin aka Wilson Fisk), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson). They are also joined by two new actors and an actress: Joanne Whalley, Wilson Bethel, and Jay Ali. Daredevil‘s showrunner is Erik Oleson.
Whalley’s character is Sister Maggie. Her character is described as, “a tough, Hell’s Kitchen-born-and-bred nun.” Bethel’s character is, much like Matt, not in a safe place psychologically. He is described as, “a psychologically tortured FBI sharpshooter.” He, “could teeter towards good or towards evil, depending on who is manipulating or inspiring him.” Ali’s character is also an FBI agent. His character is given a special role with being, “the heart of the season.”
Season one supervillain Wilson Fisk will also be coming back and this time better than before. Oleson said, “Fisk has gotten smarter, more calculated, and more manipulative. I very much wanted to tell a story that’s relevant to the world around us. I looked at the show as a way to examine how tyrants manipulate in order to push their own agenda and cause fear and distrust.”
In the upcoming season Matt’s circle of friends is also extremely limited. Both Foggy and Karen at times do not even know if he is alive or dead. Matt does reach out to Foggy, but even though they are at a bar drinking the tension is still high between them. Oleson said this about Foggy, “Foggy has been trying to move on from Matt’s memory, or at least move on with his life. If you thought one of your close friends was dead and he decided not to tell you he survived, you would probably have some issues with that.”
The long awaited third season of Daredevil will be returning on October 19th on Netflix.
