Full Daredevil Season 3 Trailer Released
Netflix has been teasing us a lot recently with Daredevil Season 3. First, the shocking announcement that it would be premiering October 19, just a month after Iron Fist Season 2 premiered. Then we got teaser trailers; one of Matt Murdock promising a darker devil will arrive in season 3 and then one dedicated to his rival Kingpin. Those were only short glimpses of what was to come and they were not giving much detail. But, now we have the official full-length trailer for Daredevil Season 3 on hand and it is intense! Check it out below.
The Devil Comes to Town
A lot is revealed about Daredevil Season 3 here. Again we learn that Matt is in a much darker place after the end of The Defenders. He is going to be more brutal than before. Daredevil has always boasted some of the best fight scenes and it looks like season 3 will continue that trend. Next, Wilson Fisk is out of jail and trying to save his name. It looks like he is getting into the “limelight” of the city instead of hiding far away from everyone in the first season. How is Wilson FIsk going to rid himself of his reputation? By putting the blame on Daredevil himself!
Fisk looks to turn Hell’s Kitchen on its hero. Fisk seems to have some plan to make Daredevil the bad guy. Also from the trailer, we learn that Fisk knows that Matt Murdock is Daredevil. It was hinted at in season 2 when the two met inside the jail, but now it is all but confirmed. Kingpin is still holding a grudge from that confrontation and he plans to use that information to ruin Daredevils life.
A Tale of Two Devils
How exactly does Kingpin plan to turn the city on DD? By having an impostor Daredevil running around doing bad stuff! It is a classic comic book trope that for the normally “gritty” “grounded” Netflix Marvel material normally shy’s away from. So, that has me excited just to see a little “goofiness” added in.
What is most intriguing about this doppelganger Daredevil is that could this be Bullseye debut? It has been rumored that Bullseye would be in season 3 of Daredevil but nothing official as of yet. Does that chin profile match actor Wilson Bethel’s? I will have to consult my wife the ultimate Hart of Dixie fan to confirm.
One question that is still left unanswered is how many episodes will Daredevil Season 3 be? The Marvel Netflix shows all have one common complaint and that is pacing. It seems no matter what somewhere in the middle they seem to drag. Iron Fist season 2 was the first one to confront that problem with cutting the season down to 10 episodes. Will Daredevil follow suit or will it still hold strong with 13 episodes?
Not long to Wait
We only have around 2 weeks until October 19th as the anticipation builds. There is a lot to love and speculation going on with this new trailer. I am personally super excited to see the themes from the famed Daredevil storyline “Born Again” to be brought to television. It will be very interesting to see how they adapt that storyline into this version of Daredevil. Are you excited for Daredevil season 3? What do you hope to see? Let us know in the comments.
