We’ve seen a few short teasers for the next series of Daredevil, but now we’ve got the first full-length one.
Clocking in at two-and-a-half minutes, there’s a lot more to it than the previous teasers.
Matt Murdock – aka Daredevil – is back from the near-dead to return to his crimefighting ways. Though there’s a sense that he’s getting a bit tired of the whole charade. “Darkness only responds to darkness,” he says at one point, which suggests this series will have a darker edge.
His arch nemesis is also back on the streets. Wilson Fisk – aka Kingpin – is out of prison and up to his old tricks. He’s planning on using Daredevil’s darker inclinations against him, by portraying him as a violent menace to society who must be stopped at all costs.
In other words, it sounds like vintage comic book hijinks. Every episode drops on Netflix on 19th October.
