Staff Reporter | On 07, Oct 2018Reading time: 12 mins
“I’ve never seen a talent like yours.” That’s Wilson Fisk talking to a new villain in the world of Netflix’s Daredevil.
Marvel’s series returns for Season 3 this October, doubling down on the darkness as we catch up with Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) several months after he’s been missing. He reemerges here as a broken man, putting into question his future as both vigilante Daredevil and lawyer. But when his archenemy Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is released from prison, Matt must choose between hiding from the world, or embracing his destiny as a hero – all while dealing with the discovery of a new masked vigilante a little too close to home.
We get a closer look at the masked vigilante in question in this new video, unveiled by Marvel at New York Comic-Con – and if you don’t want to know the identity of the bad guy in town before you watch the new season, look away now – or click here to jump down to the previous trailer.
Season 3 of Daredevil lands on Friday 19th October.
Daredevil doubles down on the darkness in new Season 3 trailer
4th October 2018
“There’s only one way to stop me, but you’re not going to do it.” “Are you sure about that?” Daredevil returns for Season 3 this October, and the new (and most likely final) trailer for the show’s third run is doubling down on the darkness in all kinds of ways.
Missing for months, the series picks up as Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) reemerges a broken man, putting into question his future as both vigilante Daredevil and lawyer. But when his archenemy Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is released from prison, Matt must choose between hiding from the world, or embracing his destiny as a hero – all while dealing with the discovery of a new masked vigilante a little too close to home.
Potentially teasing the introduction of Wilson Bethel, the new trailer also gives us a glimpse of Sister Maggie (Joanne Whalley), and also teases more of the action and moral dilemmas that we’ve come to expect from Marvel’s Netflix series. You can get a closer look at new season in a bunch of new images also released today by Netflix – read on below the trailer for those. The whole season lands on Friday 19th October.
Fisk is back in new Daredevil Season 3 trailer
26th September 2018
Guess who’s back. Back again. Fisk is back. Tell a friend – and, specifically, tell them about the snazzy white suit that Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is wearing in the new trailer for Daredevil Season 3. That costume change for the iconic Marvel villain takes the show firmly into the territory of the comic books, as the show prepares for a dark third run.
Embracing the darkness, enraged by the evil afoot, the new video teases the return of Matt Murdock… the vigilante. With Kingpin out of prison and back to corrupting Hell’s Kitchen, Murdock (Charlie Cox) must rise from the ashes to save his city.
Murdock’s return isn’t far away: Season 3 of Daredevil drops worldwide on Netflix on Friday 19th October, Joanne Whaley joining the cast as Sister Maggie, the strong-willed nun who speaks her mind and cares deeply about Daredevil’s safety. Read on for the new video – or head this way for a full guide to what’s coming soon to Netflix UK in October.
Daredevil Season 3: Matt Murdock goes dark in new photos
22nd September 2018
New photos of Daredevil Season 3 have been released by Netflix and they tease a darker direction for Hell’s Kitchen’s morally conflicted defender.
He was last seen, of course, in The Defenders, Marvel’s crossover event that teamed Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) up with Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. That miniseries climaxed with Elektra and Daredevil sparring underneath Midland Circle in the middle of New York, as Murdock kept her there while the building exploded above them. The final scene showed him in bed and his eyes fluttering open. “Go get Sister Maggie,” said the nun caring for him – and, sure enough, Joanne Whaley has since joined the show’s cast as the strong-willed nun who speaks her mind and cares deeply about Daredevil’s safety.
With Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk also set to return for Season 3, the series appears to be steering towards an adaptation of Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Born Again, one of the Marvel character’s most popular and well-known comic book arcs. The new pictures add weight to the idea, with the photos giving us a look at Murdock in his old vigilante get-up, rather than his red, armoured costume – a sign of how much darker things are going to get, as the lawyer starts over again, embracing the darkness to take down evil once and for all.
Season 3 of Daredevil premieres on Friday 19th October – read on below for the first teaser trailer:
Trailer: Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 gets October release date
20th September 2018
Daredevil Season 3 finally has an official release date – and the good news is that it’s coming a lot sooner than expected.
Embracing the darkness, enraged by the evil afoot, Matt Murdock’s return sees him more vigilante than hero, as Hell Kitchen’s part-time lawyer and full-time protector takes a turn for the shadowier.
Season 3’s details are being kept under wraps, but we know that Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk will return and that Joanne Whaley has joined the cast as Sister Maggie, a strong-willed nun who speaks her mind and cares deeply about Daredevil’s safety. We also know that the series has switched showrunners, with Erik Oleson (The Man in the High Castle) taking charge of the writing team.
Season 3 will premiere on Netflix worldwide on Friday 19th october. Here’s the first look teaser trailer – read on below for the striking new poster.
First look: Daredevil Season 3 trailer teases release date
10th September 2018
Daredevil Season 3 may well be released this December, judging by the first trailer for Matt Murdock’s return.
Marvel has been pretty quiet on the third solo outing for Hell’s Kitchen’s best lawyer, but details have slowly been trickling out in the last year. Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk will return and Joanne Whaley has joined the cast as Sister Maggie, a strong-willed nun who speaks her mind and cares deeply about Daredevil’s safety. We also know that the series has switched showrunners, with Erik Oleson (The Man in the High Castle) taking charge of the writing team.
Sister Maggie’s appearance suggests that Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Born Again, one of the character’s most popular and well-known comic book arcs, could be the touchpoint for Season 3. Netflix’s version of Daredevil has already altered the character significantly from the comics, but the tone and themes of Born Again gives a good idea of what fans can expect of Murdock’s return, and the new video confirms that darkness is descending.
There’s also a hint at a December release date, with Daredevil’s official Twitter account sharing the video alongside the words “Job 12:22”. With Netflix previously confirming that Season 3 will air before the year is out, that points heavily to a 22nd December release date – although it could also just be a suitably shadowy Bible quote to set the mood. “He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light,” reads the passage. “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow,” was another Bible verse quoted by the Twitter account back in April.
Either way, here’s the new video:
Daredevil Season 3 will premiere this year
4th August 2018
Daredevil will return for Season 3 before this year is out, Netflix has confirmed.
Marvel’s heroes of Hell’s Kitchen have been a major success for both the streaming service and Disney. Even as the House of Mouse is preparing to launch its own rival streaming platform, that relationship is continuing, with Iron Fist returning this September for Season 2 and Luke Cage recently debuting its sophomore run. With Jessica Jones already renewed for Season 3, Charlie Cox’s lawyer, Matt Murdock, has been the one left without any major updates in recent months.
The show switched showrunners last year, with Erik Oleson (The Man in the High Castle) taking charge of the writing team. We also know that Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk will return, and that Joanne Whaley has joined the cast as Sister Maggie, a strong-willed nun who speaks her mind and cares deeply about Daredevil’s safety. Even with a Daredevil teaser dropped at the end of The Punisher’s spin-off series last year, what we haven’t known for some time is when he’ll return to our screens.
Now, we know for certain that it’ll be this year.
Speaking in the streaming giant’s recent Q2 earnings call for shareholders (spotted by ComicBook.com – you can read the full transcript courtesy of Netflix here), Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, gave a rundown of the rest of the year’s content slate.
“In the short term, we’ve got new seasons coming up the second half of this year of Orange is the New Black, Ozark, Iron Fist, Daredevil, Narcos, the finale of House of Cards, the follow-up series for Making a Murderer,” he said. “And we have some brand-new IP coming up with new shows like Insatiable; Maniac with Emma Stone and Jonah Hill; Disenchantment from Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons, doing an animated comedy for us; a new show from Greg Berlanti’s company, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a spinoff of Riverdale, has been hugely popular for us. And that all ramps up to bigger and better feature films, too, for our fans around the world, starting with [Christmas Chronicles] from Chris Columbus later this year and Bird Box from Sandra Bullock with the great Susanne Bier directing.”
With Jessica Jones’ second season airing in the first quarter of 2018, that means all four members of The Defenders will have released new episodes of their solo outings on Netflix this year. With Iron Fist set for a Season 2 premiere of 7th September, you can expect Daredevil to drop its sophomore run around in November, the slot that The Punisher’s solo spin-off occupied last year (with its new episodes currently filming, you can expect Frank Castle to return in 2019).
Sarandos’ comment follows Netflix VP of Original Content Cindy Holly, who hailed the show’s third season as a “return to form” at Netflix’s recent TCA press tour panel.
“There’s always an ongoing discussion about spinning off additional characters into additional properties,” she said in response to a question about any additional Marvel spin-offs in the works. “I don’t have anything to share.”
When asked about Daredevil’s apparent delay, she added: “The biggest issue was the timing of production and launching of The Defenders because what that meant is we had to shut down all of the shows, so all the actors be available for The Defenders so it’s more function of that. There is no problem with this season, I think it’s fantastic, it’s [a] real return to form in my view.”
She also said a Season 2 of The Defenders “could be possible”, but there are “no plans at this time”.
Joanne Whalley joins Daredevil Season 3
26th January 2018
Joanne Whaley has joined Season 3 of Marvel’s Daredevil.
The Edge of Darkness star will portray Sister Maggie, a strong-willed nun who speaks her mind and cares deeply about Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) safety.
“We are big fans of Joanne’s work and are fortunate that someone of her caliber will be joining our already talented family,” says Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Television.
“Joanne is a rare talent and a terrific creative collaborator,” adds Erik Oleson, now Showrunner and Executive Producer. “Watching her bring her role to life has the writers all pinching ourselves.”
Whalley joins returning cast members Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), as well as Vincent D’Onofrio who is reprising his popular role as Wilson Fisk.
Wilson Fisk will return for Daredevil Season 3
26th October 2017
Wilson Fisk will return for Season 3 of Daredevil, Marvel has announced.
Fisk, aka. iconic Daredevil comics villain Kingpin, was one of the major reasons Season 1 of the Netflix series was so widely praised, as Vincent D’Onofrio played the powerful businessman trying to control Hell’s Kitchen with vulnerability and menace.
“In the past, he’s been portrayed as an enormous brute, but D’Onofrio digs deep to create a fascinating character, drawing inspiration from the likes of Tony Soprano and even his own role from Full Metal Jacket,” we wrote in our review. “His hulking physique belies an awkwardness that’s both touching and a little disconcerting; when his civilised mask finally slips, it makes for a truly terrifying sight.”
Season 2 of Daredevil brought him back for a brief cameo, once again pitting him against attorney Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and his horned alter-ego. While that appearance was a surprise, Marvel is making no secret of Fisk’s return to the limelight for the show’s upcoming third run.
The news is announced by Marvel just as Erik Oleson joins the Netflix original series as showrunner and executive producer. Oleson was most recently head writer and Executive Producer of Amazon’s The Man In The High Castle. Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and Loeb will exec produce the show, alongside Jim Chory (Marvel’s Jessica Jones).
“Vincent is an exceptional actor who returns with the incredible gravitas he brings to Fisk,” says executive producer, Jeph Loeb, adding, “we’re very excited how Marvel’s Daredevil develops through the creative lens and guidance of our new showrunner, Erik Oleson.”
D’Onofrio will be joined by returning cast members, including Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson). Season 3 of Daredevil is expected to air in 2018. You can see the first teaser trailer for the series here.
