Wilson Fisk is back, and looking more like the Kingpin of the Daredevil comics than ever.
In Netflix’s new “Daredevil” Season 3 teaser trailer released Wednesday, Fisk is pictured putting on a white suit that looks very much like the one worn by Kingpin in the comics since his debut in “The Amazing Spider-Man” issue 50, way back in 1967. Quite the contrast from the orange jumpsuit he had to wear behind bars.
The camera then pans over to a bloodied Matt Murdock, who takes off his sunglasses, tosses them in a fire and replaces them with his Devil mask. According to the official logline for Season 3 — which Netflix also released Wednesday — Matt will be questioning his identity not only as a lawyer but as Daredevil. With Fisk getting out of prison, he’d better figure that out soon.
We last saw Matt at the end of “The Defenders,” where he was assumed dead after the Midland Circle collapse. In the first teaser video, Matt says ominously: “You can suffocate evil. Starve it. Lock it behind bars. But it will find a way to come back, even stronger. There’s only one true way to end evil. To finish it for good. Let the devil out.”
Dark stuff, Matt — but we can’t wait.
“Daredevil” Season 3 premieres on Netflix Oct. 19.
