We got the news late July during San Diego Comic-Con, 2016, that a third season for Daredevil will officially happen. Today we got the news that the third season will start filming this year. That’s when we got the idea to do this article on what I (@KostymenTweets) want to see for Daredevil season 3.
I think Daredevil season 3 should be their take on the ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ storyline. It’s the one me (and others) think makes the most sense from where we are now on the show. Looking back at what we know from the season 2 finale, Matt has now told Karen his identity and their agency has collapsed. Season 3 would probably be about Matt trying to fix his life after failing to separate his two lives from each other. Trying to do a better job balancing his two identities as Matt Murdock and the devil of Hell’s Kitchen. The ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ storyline is about how his whole life falls apart and drives Matt Murdock into insanity after Wilson Fisk finds out Daredevil is Matt Murdock. Fisk uses the law against Matt and gets his bank accounts frozen by the IRS. The bank forecloses his home and Matt gets prohibited from practising law. All while trying to figure who’s doing all of this. Matt suffers mentally and becomes paranoid. He doesn’t know who he can trust and becomes homeless. Then it goes on from there. Karen Page has become a drug addicted pornstar. She is the one who told Wilson Fisk who Daredevil is, out of desperation for more heroin. They most likely wouldn’t make her a pornstar. They could still give her the drug problem. Again, this would be their own take on the story, so it’s up for them to decide what’s best. Ultimately, this would be a great way to step it up from season 2, and tie the show together from everything we’ve seen.
A villain plenty of us want to see done right on screen is Bullseye. I believe this is a good time to introduce him. Just make him Wilson Fisk’s hitman instead of Nuke. This would immediately go a different direction from the comics but I think it would work perfectly for the show. He could be the main antagonist while Fisk is hiding under the shadows pulling strings.
I think it’s safe to assume that The Hand storyline is being entirely told and wrapped up on The Defenders show. So I’m not expecting its return for season 3. Except for maybe Elektra Natchios who could make her return for the upcoming season. They might use her for The Defenders first but maybe we could see a redemption arc for her during season 3? It’s something I would love to see for sure.
Overall, I’m expecting Daredevil season 3 to be even more darker and suspenseful than season 2. Pulling from ‘Daredevil: Born Again’, and introducing the famous antagonist Bullseye, would be the perfect way to make this happen, in my opinion. I absolutely love this show and can’t wait for Daredevil season 3! – Tim (@KostymenTweets)
