Daredevil Season 3 begins shooting later this year
In July of last year, Netflix and Marvel Entertainment announced Daredevil Season 3 was coming with a bloody video, but we had no idea when it would actually arrive. Now star Charlie Cox has gone on the podcast Film and Telly Stuff (via MCU Exchange) and revealed that shooting will begin within the calendar year.
“I do that later in the year,” he said. “We’ll go back and do that.”
Filming wrapped up on the team-up show The Defenders Season 1 last month, and it’s unknown how the events of that show will effect Matt Murdock and company going forward. With shooting to take place later in 2017, we wouldn’t expect the third season to drop any sooner than an early 2018 frame. We do know that Cox has said multiple times (via ScreenGeek) that he wants Bullseye (previously portrayed on film by Colin Farrell) to pop up as the bad guy.
“It’s no secret, I’ve said it before and I get in trouble every time I say it, I’d like to see Bullseye make an appearance at some point,” Cox stated in November. “I think it’s a really interesting opportunity. Deborah Ann Woll obviously does not want Bullseye to show up for obvious reasons. Elodie Yung, who plays Elektra, doesn’t want Bullseye to show up either.”
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios. Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.
Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 featured the return of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock (who moonlights as The Man Without Fear), Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Scott Glenn as Stick and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. The season also saw Jon Bernthal debut as Frank Castle (aka the Punisher) with Elodie Yung playing the deadly assassin Elektra Natchios.
Marvel’s Daredevil is Executive Produced by Doug Petrie (American Horror Story, Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Marco Ramirez (DaVinci’s Demons) and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, Lost), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel’s Jessica Jones.) It is is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
