The first two seasons of Netflix / Marvel‘s Daredevil received generally good to great reviews and it’s largely considered the flagship of the collaboration between the two media giants. That being said, the Defenders limited series left Matt Murdock’s alter-ego critically-injured and with his friends and community believing that the vigilante was dead, buried under the Hand’s demolished headquarters. Which leads to the question, how do you do a third run?
The 2018 season brings back a familiar face and introduces the tv version of one of DD’s best-known enemies. Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’onofrio) returns to menace Matt after the former Kingpin makes a deal with the FBI to get an ‘early release’. That may be the least of Matt’s problems when a discredited sharp-shooter Benjamin Poyndexter (Wilson Bethel) – with the nickname ‘Bullseye’ – decides to take the law into his own hands and appears to take on the persona of daredevil – much to Matt’s chagrin.
How will Matt deal with these new threats – and how will his friends react to TWO Daredevil’s in Hell’s Kitchen?
