Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil pours out his heart in the confessional booth in the new teaser trailer for Daredevil season three. “I once believed that justice could be found in a court of law and in the light of day,” says Daredevil. “But I was fooling myself. Darkness only responds to darkness. And the truth is I’d rather die as the Devil than live as Matt Murdock.”
Season three begins by picking up where The Defenders left off, with Daredevil thought to be dead by his fellow superheroes Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones). The finale of The Defenders revealed Matt Murdock, bloodied and in horrible physical condition, managed to survive the cave-in. The Defenders finale showed Matt being tended to by a nun who says it’s time to summon Maggie.
Cox confirmed in interviews that the new season is going to be inspired in part by the “Born Again” storyline from the comics. That would make sense as Maggie is, of course, Matt’s mother, Margaret Murdock, who is played by Joanne Whalley in season three.
The cast of season three includes Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk (Kingpin). Wilson Bethel plays an FBI agent and Jay Ali is Rahul ‘Ray’ Nadeem. Erik Oleson is the season three showrunner and Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb executive produces.
