For those who are fans of the Netflix original series Daredevil, you may find yourself slightly disappointed. The series might be put on the back-burner, for the moment, as Marvel Studios turns their focus to other projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Daredevil season 2 was released on Netlfix in March, and it introduced new new marvel characters to the MCU. Jon Bernthal debuted as The Punisher, and Elodie Yung as Elektra. The series has continuously received high acclaims, and gained a pretty strong fan-base.
Unfortunately for fans of the series, Netflix, as of right now, has yet to renew the series for a third season. Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez (Daredevil show-runners) have signed on as show-runners for the upcoming The Defenders miniseries. Ramirez and Petrie’s focus on The Defenders combined with the fact that the miniseries will also include Daredevil lead Charlie Cox, present some problems for the future of the standalone series. Again, I emphasize, for the moment.
The Defenders is scheduled to begin production by the end of the year, putting a hold on the development for Daredevil Season 3. At the very least, if it does get renewed, Season 3 might end up being delayed past the previous spring release time frame.
If Daredevil does return for a Season 3, Charlie Cox stated in an interview with Cinemablend that he would like the character of Bullseye to show up as a villain. In the comics, Bullseye is among Daredevil’s biggest archenemies.
If we are fortunate enough to continue making the Daredevil series, I can’t imagine doing a run of Daredevil where Bullseye doesn’t show up at some point. It would be great to have him around at some point. Who would play that part I have no idea but I just think there’s such an interesting, rich character there, and also of course, the history that Bullseye has with Karen Page is an interesting dynamic.
So, for the moment, we have no choice but to sit and wait to hear some more news on whether or not The Man Without Fear will get his own third season. However, fans can see him when The Defenders gets released sometime next year.
