The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen has returned… and not a moment too soon.
Nipping at the heels of yesterday’s blood-red teaser poster, Marvel and Netflix have premiered the first official trailer for Daredevil season 3, confirming that, yes, the premier superhero drama will return on October 19th, after all. And with it, Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin who found himself locked behind bars all the way back in season 1.
Granted, Vincent D’Onofrio’s all-powerful crime boss featured during Daredevil‘s second season, too, where he formed an unlikely alliance with Frank Castle – better known to you, I and New York’s finest as The Punisher.
And that’s almost certainly Wilson Fisk donning a white suit in today’s first-look trailer for Daredevil season 3, while Matt Murdock has reverted back to his old black costume – fitting, really, given he lost everything to The Hand… Elektra and all.
That cruel twist of fate paves the way for a much darker rendition of the Daredevil we know and love, while there’s even been talk of a well-timed corridor fight scene that harkens back to the original season. Color us intrigued.
Story-wise, we know the third chapter of Marvel’s premier Netflix drama will pick up soon after the calamitous events of The Defenders miniseries, which left Matt Murdock on the brink of death. It’s a trajectory that will allow the Powers That Be to adapt Frank Miller’s famous “Born Again” comic, which ought to please long-time fans of the Man Without Fear.
All 13 episodes of Daredevil season 3 will premiere via Netflix on October 19th – just in time for the spookiest month of the year. Are you ready to see Matt Murdock let the devil out? You can, as always, chime in with your thoughts and comments via the usual place.
