The Marvel Cinematic Universe is an ever expanding place. In addition to the blockbusters that arrive every few months, there are also a plethora of small screen adventures, the best of which are produced on Netflix. And with The Defenders miniseries now in the rear view mirror, the time has come to look forward to the upcoming new seasons of the four original solo series. Perhaps none is as highly anticipated as Daredevil Season 3, especially after Matt Murdock's fate at the end of Defenders. Deborah Ann Woll's Karen Page will return after her appearance on The Punisher, and the actress recently revealed where she'd like to see her character go in the third season of Daredevil.
Definitely her past. We've been hinting at it, and I hope that we eventually unwrap that candy. That's cool to me.
It loos like Deborah Ann Woll is ready to get into some new territory for Karen Page, specifically the years before she eventually entered Matt and Foggy's lives in episode 1 of Daredevil. And the fans would likely agree.
Deborah Ann Woll's comments to Collider are sure to echo the concerns of Karen's many fans. While she's one of the leading characters of Daredevil, the series is still very much focused on Matt's journey as a vigilante. Karen has gotten robbed of a few great storylines throughout her tenure in the MCU, and it hasn't gone unnoticed. For instance, after killing a man in Season 1 and apparently suffering from some PTSD about the incident, it was literally never mentioned again.
The Season 2 finale of Daredevil ended with Matt revealing his secret identity to Karen, which seemed like a game changer for their personal dynamic, and the show in general. But when they returned for The Defenders, they seemed to have already moved passed the event, with Karen in her new job and the two former lovers getting along fairly well.
With these two potential opportunities passed up on, it would be great to see a greater focus on Karen Page and her history when Daredevil returns for its third season on Netflix. And if her past can also include the time she totally shot a guy to death, that would be even better. With the upcoming season being Karen's whopping fifth appearance on Netflix's Marvel universe, she's been around long enough to warrant some extra screen time.
And if there's a way for she and Foggy to become close to Matt's adventures as Daredevil, then that would be another great way for Season 3 to set itself apart from the previous two installments.
Alas, we'll have to wait until Season 3 of Daredevil arrives sometime this year. The next installment in the universe will be Season 2 of Jessica Jones on March 8, 2018.
