When Daredevil Season 2 went down all those ages ago, the Punisher didn't have his own show yet, the Defenders hadn't teamed up yet, and everybody was still wondering if Thanos was actually going to affect the MCU or not. Heading into Season 3, all that has changed, but things are looking very much the same for Matt Murdock, both in terms of his old school black hood and his blood-covered face. Check out the first look teaser below, which confirms Season 3 will be released on Netflix on Friday, October 19. Enjoy!
Surprisingly, Marvel and Netflix decided to drop Daredevil on fans just over a month after Iron Fist Season 2 was released. At some point, we knew some of these Marvel show releases were going to start overlapping, given how many there are, so we've got zero complaints. And we've also got zero blood dropping down our chins, which can't be said for one Matt Murdock, as evidenced by just about every shot of him in the promo.
When Season 3 kicks off, Hell's Kitchen won't have a Daredevil to rely on, since Matt will still be dealing with the devastating aftermath from the Defenders finale, which basically left him for dead in everyone's minds. But he's clearly still among the living, and he's looking to beat the crap out of some of those other living creatures, even though we're not quite sure who they are yet.
As well, the promo only shows Matt in his traditional lawyer-ly get-up, with the suit and tinted glasses, or in the homemade vigilante garb. There are no signs of his signature costume, which raises suspicions about what happened to his suit after he went M.I.A. on the world. Is Karen hugging it to fall asleep at night? Or maybe she's using it as a dartboard/living room rug. Things didn't end too pleasantly between them. Or between him and Foggy. Or between him and Elektra. Say, something tells me this Matt guys isn't great with personal relationships. In any case, this new post possibly hints at the "real" Daredevil putting both feet in the grave for Season 3.
Considering Matt ended up at a certain nunnery in The Defenders' finale, fans are pumped to see how the live-action series will handle introducing the character's mother Margaret Murdock, who was a very important figure in the comics. She probably won't be the one responsible for bashing Matt's face in, but they might very well come to blows before it's all said and done.
It wasn't long ago when the Daredevil Season 3 release date got inadvertently revealed via an international Netflix Twitter account, but fans weren't quite sure if that information would turn out to be legitimate for U.S. audiences. Well, it did, and we have slightly less than a month to wait!
So mark it on a calendar, whether in marker or in Braille, and remember Daredevil Season 3 will premiere on Netflix on Friday, October 19, at 12:01 a.m. PT.
