Marvel and Netflix have released the official, full-length trailer for Daredevil Season 3 ahead of the show’s New York Comic Con panel this weekend and hoo boy is Matt Murdock not having a good time in it.
The highlight of the trailer is seeing the return of Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk, who was largely absent from the show’s second season. According to the official synopsis, Season 3 will deal with the ramifications of Fisk being released from prison:
“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.”
Daredevil showrunner Erik Olsen has noted that Matt Murdock will have a trying time this season, suggesting that this could be the darkest Daredevil has ever been:
“Matt goes to pretty much the darkest place you can,” Olsen says. “When he realizes that he’s incapable of being Daredevil, he would rather just end it than go forward in his life without abilities. He’s decided to set aside his Matt Murdock persona and just be the Devil, to isolate the lighter part of himself.”
Daredevil’s entire third season hits Netflix on Friday, October 12.
