'Daredevil' Season 3: Netflix drops new set of photos, hinting Fisk is back and set to reclaim Hell's Kitchen
'Daredevil' Season 3: There's Matt Murdoch dressed in black, prepping for battle and then there's Fisk in his white coat. It's just too much!
'Daredevil' Season 3: The first Marvel brainchild to have been turned into a Netflix original - 'Daredevil' - is returning with its third installment, just next month; and ahead of that, the showrunners have decided to bless fan with brand new photos from the upcoming season 3.
As already known, Charlie Cox will be reprising his role in the titular character aka Matt Murdock - as he has done since the series' initiation back in 2015. But everybody's favorite attorney by day and vigilante by night is going to see a very different character arc this time, and can you really blame him though? Between nearly getting killed in Defenders and still believed as dead by the general public, that man's brain is sure to have turned much darker. But more drama awaits him as he returns to Hell's Kitchen where rampant conflict consumes the plot for season 3.
The official Marvel and Netflix synopsis for the season says: "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."
And while Matt - knowing his signature style - will try to do it all alone by himself, the newly released photos offer a bleak ray of hope in the form of a reunion between him and Foggy. One particular image shows another familiar face, aka Karen Page (Deborah Ann Wolf), even though their expressions give away the lack of warmth in their encounter.

In another photo, Matt can be seen in his black Daredevil costume - all geared up for battle presumably - with wraps around his fists and forearms. As spoilers reveal, Matt is going to eventually bring the battle to Fisk, and the last two photos revealed by Netflix drop the mega bomb of showing the villain, first in prison, and then back on the streets. Matt and Karen have had quite the rocky past in terms of their relationship, but by the looks of it, she wouldn't mind helping Matt take down Fisk. Especially not after she did the helped Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) quite a lot in The Punisher!
But it is the photos of Fisk that have raised the excitement level for fans of the show because let's be real: Who isn't dying to see D'Onofrio return!? Back in season one, he left the benchmark quite high for all future villains to catch up; so this upcoming season clearly makes for an exciting opportunity to watch him come back with a bang and reign as Kingpin! Also, he appears in a white suit in a room full of FBI agents and other government officials, and that could only lead to one assumption: He is most probably reclaiming his place in Hell's Kitchen!
