Fans rejoice! According to Marvel Television chief Jeph Loeb, Daredevil Season 3 will see the return of a fan favorite villain, as well as the ushering in of a new showrunner.
Here’s what he had to say
“Vincent [D’Onofrio] is an exceptional actor who returns with the incredible gravitas he brings to [Wilson] Fisk. We’re very excited how Marvel’s Daredevil develops through the creative lens and guidance of our new showrunner, Erik Oleson.”
That’s right. Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin) will be returning for this third season of Daredevil. This isn’t all too surprising. When we last saw Kingpin, he seemed to have pegged Matt Murdock as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, and it seemed to allude to the fact that we’d be seeing the “Born Again” storyline from the comics. This was amplified at the end of Defenders with the imagery of Matt waking up all bandaged in a nunnery.
Now with that out of the way, the other big news has to do with the new showrunner. Changing of showrunners isn’t something new to Daredevil. Steven S. DeKnight served as showrunner in Season 1, and for Season 2, Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez took over those duties. While I may be inclined to be concerned, the new showrunner, Erik Oleson, does have experience with as writer and EP of shows like Man in the High Castle and Arrow.
Hopefully the more positive aspects of his showrunning will be present in this third season of Daredevil.
