It looks like Matt Murdock is going to the dark side — and he doesn’t want you to call him Matt Murdock anymore. The first teaser trailer for Daredevil Season 3 puts Marvel’s first Netflix vigilante in a confessional, where he reveals that he no longer believes in the concept of justice that once inspired him to don the mask and fight crime. Matt Murdock remains missing, but Daredevil is certainly back.
Even days away from The Defenders, we can’t help looking forward to new seasons of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist. Daredevil in particular has been silent since Season 3’s announcement last summer, but may finally get going in time for Halloween.
Whether or not Marvel’s Iron Fist succeeded in bringing the character to life, few would argue the oddity of Season 1 never attempting any outfit to evoke the classic costume. It would be odder still if The Defenders never gave all four heroes a chance to fight side-by-side in their comic looks, but according to Charlie Cox, Iron Fist might not suit up in The Defenders either.
Just as Jessica Jones Season 2 is finally heading before cameras, so too is Daredevil ready to move on from The Defenders. Season 3 production of Netflix’s Man Without Fear is said to begin later this year, Charlie Cox reveals.
Apart from Jessica Jones, Daredevil will prove the Defender we’ve lost touch with the most, by the time Marvel’s four-way Netflix teamup debuts this summer. Season 2 left us on a semi-hopeful note of Matt making a surprise admission to Karen, but according to Charlie Cox, Matt will have taken things much further by the time The Defenders opens.
