Season 3 of Daredevil isn’t going to be all sunshine and lollipops. It seems like the titular character is in a very dark place right. Those who have already binged all 10 episodes of Season 2 of Iron Fist got a special surprise after the credits wrapped up in the season finale. A 30-second clip featuring Daredevil played–for those who didn’t skip past the credits–which is undoubtedly a teaser for the upcoming third season of the Netflix series.
In the teaser, Matt Murdock–wearing the same mask he dawned in Season 1–is in a confessional, talking to a priest. “I once believed that justice could be found in a court of law, even in the light of day, but I was fooling myself,” said Murdock. “Darkness only responds to darkness. And the truth is, I’d rather die as the devil then live as Matt Murdock.”
Murdock hasn’t had the easiest go of things in recent years. He’s battled and defeated The Hand through the two seasons Daredevil and one of the Defenders, he’s been beaten to a bloody pulp on multiple occasions, and he’s been emotionally conflicted with being reunited–and then losing–the love of his life, Elektra. It seems this has taken its toll on the hero of Hell’s Kitchen, but does this mean that his life as Murdock is no more?
Netflix has been extremely tight-lipped about the upcoming season. An air date has not been announced, but we do know Season 3 will drop this year. Back in January, a fan did see the new season in production and spotted Vincent D’Onofrio reprising his role as Kingpin. The picture posted online has since been taken down. And that’s all we know right now; however, there is a Daredevil panel at October’s New York Comic-Con, so surely we will learn more then.
Daredevil Season 3 should arrive sometime before the end of 2018.
