Daredevil Season 3’s Trailer Promises a Lot of Good

Full disclosure; I’ve been down on the Marvel Netflix universe lately. I haven’t particularly liked anything since the first half of Luke Cage. I still haven’t watched the second seasons of Luke Cage or Iron Fist. Neither do I have any real inclination to change that. This, though. The trailer for season three of Daredevil just jumped my enthusiasm up considerably.

Taking place after the ending of Defenders, this season looks to continue the familiar conflicts of guilt and responsibility defining the first two seasons of Daredevil. Matt Murdock has ditched his red costume in favor of his old black threads. He’s confessing his identity in church. Wilson Fisk is out and turning New York City against Daredevil. That’s 100% Bullseye in the red costume.

Just having Fisk back means a huge deal, because he did a great job carrying a lot of season 1. Fans see a lot of similarities between the premise of season 3 and the 1986 Daredevil storyline “Born Again,” which sees Fisk find out Matt Murdock’s identity and proceed to ruin his life before trying to kill him. This trailer certainly suggests something similar. And honestly, having Fisk back to his old “for the good of Hell’s Kitchen” shtick is a pleasure. Vincent D’Onofrio remains the best casting decision any of these shows have made.

I’m excited. Really excited. Marvel Netflix needs a shot in the arm and this looks like it.

Season three of Daredevil hits Netflix on October 19. Here’s hoping for the best.
