Marvel's Netflix dramas have been (mostly) winning fans over ever since Daredevil first debuted back in 2014, and now we're finally close to getting our third official season from the Man Without Fear. As it was hinted at in the previous teaser, Season 3 will give fans even more to cheer about in the form of Wilson Fisk's iconic white suit from the comics, which Vincent D'Onofrio's returning villain will at last get to pimp out. And no, he didn't forget to bring his cufflinks. Check it out!
That's right, the new promo wastes no time in getting to the Kingpin of the situation by starting off right on those magnificent square cufflinks, which presumably sent a jolt of excitement down fans' spines. The black shirt came close to throwing me off, too, but then he popped that shimmering white jacket on and started buttoning it, and I may have accidentally fist-pumped my coffee mug right off of my desk. Cody Crump's "Burn" isn't exactly the most high-energy tune to have set the teaser to, but it imparts the proper mysterious and melancholy mood that Daredevil adheres to well.
And here's a shot of him in the suit, sans music.
After two seasons -- well, one and a half, since Fisk's Season 2 stint was limited and mostly kept to Frank Castle's jail time -- the stout villain seemed destined to finally get his comic-ready outfit going this year, and thank goodness it's happening. Since, you know, TV bad guys don't usually have this kind of extended shelf life, especially comic book baddies. So while nothing has been confirmed one way or the other about the future, I can't imagine that Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk will continue to be a major Netflix heavy for future Daredevil seasons. I certainly hope so, of course, because he's a beast.
Kingpin's white suit was teased recently in the first Daredevil Season 3 video that came out, which also featured Matt Murdock's blood-stained face. (Seriously, I get slight anxiety from watching this footage, with every one of my instincts yearning to wipe his upper lip with a wet rag.) It's assumed that Fisk's own hands will be responsible for putting some of that blood on Matt's face, but who else will the thought-dead hero face in Season 3? Will we definitely get to see Bullseye? Will Matt have to do battle with Karen and Foggy after they find out he's still alive? Will we ever see Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple on this show again? Can I borrow that white suit? All the questions!
Daredevil's official Season 3 synopsis was also revealed, along with the promo and images. Check it out below.
Missing for months, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) reemerges a broken man, putting into question his future as both vigilante Daredevil and lawyer Matthew Murdock. 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.
There's only a few more weeks to go until we get to see that white suit (and Matt's old black mask get-up), with Daredevil Season 3 set to debut on Netflix on Friday, October 19, at 12:01 a.m. PT. There's lot of other shows starting up before and after that point, too, and you can find them all with our 2018 Netflix schedule and our fall TV premiere schedule.
