While fans previously feared that Daredevil Season 3 is put on hold indefinitely, the series renewal was announced during the 2016 San Diego Comic Con.
Thought at first to premiere in 2017, word came out at the Television Critics Association press tour that Season 3 of Daredevil, along with Season 2 of Jessica Jones, won?t happen until after The Defenders. That means fans can expect our blind superhero to be back by 2018.
Season 2 closed with Matt Murdock, played by Charlie Cox (aka Daredevil sans the costume), making a pact with Elektra, played by Elodie Young, to leave New York together. Unfortunately, Elektra was killed by Nobu (Peter Shinkoda) during a tragic battle with The Hand. Daredevil defeats The Hand, with the help of The Punisher (John Bernthal), while his old mentor Stick (Scott Glenn), returns to finish off Nobu.
In the meantime, Matt comes clean to his other on and off lover Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), and reveals his superhero alter ego. On the other hand, Matt?s pal Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), accepts a job with Jeri Hogarth, Jessica Jones? one-time employer. This dissolves the troubled Nelson and Murdock law firm.
It is rumored that the comic book series? perennial nemesis, Bullseye, will be coming in Daredevil Season 3. First introduced to the comic book series in 1976, Bullseye is a hitman with uncanny aim and is arguably Daredevil?s most persistent and formidable foe. In a Digital Spy interview way back in April 2015 with actor Charlie Cox, he said, ?At some point, I presume we?ve got to have Bullseye?I feel like he has to make an appearance.?
It?s also rumored that Elektra will come back. In the last few moments of Season 2, it can be recalled that the Hand was seen placing Elektra in a big stone urn that Nobu had been trying to protect. Previously, Stick had informed Matt about the possibility of becoming immortal through resurrection. But with Elektra?s body in the hands of the villainous gang, it is feared that even if she comes back, she might return as a villain.
So far, there is no news regarding a confirmed Daredevil Season 3 release. Stay tuned to TheBitBag for updates.
