Calling all Marvel fans: A new trailer has been released for the third season of Daredevil for Netflix! It looks like the season will not only harken back to the storyline of Daredevil’s Born Again comic, but also show an even darker side of Daredevil that fans haven’t seen before.

The new trailer was released at New York Comic Con on Thursday and showed the long-awaited return of the blind lawyer/masked vigilante of Hell’s Kitchen. Spoilers from The Defenders series, it seems that Matt Murdock has come back from having a large building being dropped on him. Now, Murdock is on a darker path trying to fully embrace the “Daredevil” side of his personality especially since Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin, has also returned to the spotlight after getting out of prison. The trailer shows glimpses of the return of the show’s beloved characters such as Foggy Nelson and Karen Page while also briefly introduces a possible new villain masquerading as Daredevil, is it the super sharpshooter Bullseye perhaps?
We’ll have to see how much they might include of this possible new villain that may or may not be Bullseye if they stick to the storyline of Frank Miller’s Born Again from 1986. The story, similar to the third season, focuses on Daredevil’s descent into darkness and insanity plus his own struggle to create a new life for himself. There’s also the Kingpin’s new obsession of killing Matt Murdock after he discovers he’s Daredevil. The comic not only shows Daredevil’s downward spiral, but also Karen Page’s as she becomes a heroin addict and betrays her friend Matt in a horrible way. We’re unsure if they’ll show much of a downfall for Karen this season since she’s a reporter on the show rather than an actress in Miller’s comic run.
However, time will only tell where these characters end up, whether they survive the season or if Matt will forget the consequences and become Daredevil for the rest of his life. All episodes of the new season will drop on Netflix October 19th which definitely seems to fit the Halloween vibes this time of year. Will you be watching?
