It looks like Matt Murdock is going to the dark side — and he doesn’t want you to call him Matt Murdock anymore. The first teaser trailer for Daredevil Season 3 puts Marvel’s first Netflix vigilante in a confessional, where he reveals that he no longer believes in the concept of justice that once inspired him to don the mask and fight crime. Matt Murdock remains missing, but Daredevil is certainly back.
Details on the upcoming season of Daredevil are still relatively scarce, aside from confirmation of a few returning faces. Based on the events at the end of The Defenders (which also had quite an impact on Danny Rand’s arc in Iron Fist Season 2), Matt Murdock is presumed dead, and judging by Daredevil’s first Season 3 teaser, The Man Without Fear will still be MIA when his Netflix series returns sometime later this year.
Even as Disney’s independent streaming service will launch in fall 2019, the TV side is already taking shape. Not only do we have a sense of what budget the Star Wars TV series and its companions will have (hint: dragon-sized), but we also know The Defenders are safe at Netflix.
Marvel’s Daredevil can’t be “Born Again” without the woman who gave birth in the first place. Following a Defenders tease, Season 3 of Marvel’s fearless vigilante has cast Matt Murdock’s famous mother and reassured the family reunion will take place later this year.
