Well, it’s official. Season 3 of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix is coming soon. Announced earlier today at San Diego Comic-Con and via Twitter this evening, we get a small taste of what’s to come in a newly released announcement video.
The teaser video features a NYC subway sign for the 1, 2, and 3 train lines in Hell’s Kitchen, and when the lights go out for a moment, we hear the sounds of melee combat. I didn’t catch it on the first go around, but did notice on the second: the iconic DD is splattered in blood on the sign! Though we never see an combatants, there’s no doubt what’s happening. When the lights come back on, the sign for the 3 train is spotlighted before the text comes up that “Season III” will be “coming soon.”
But don’t take my word for it, watch the teaser trailer here below!
In a development so stunning it made me drop a cup of coffee on my foot this morning, Daredevil – the self-proclaimed nocturnal protector of Hell’s Kitchen (the neighborhood in New York, not the cooking show with that perpetually angry British dude) – has revealed that he has become a born again Christian and will no longer battle crime as Daredevil.
“I can no longer continue my fight against the criminal element of this city while dressed as a poorly-attired minion of the dark lord Satan,” Daredevil said to the assembled press early this morning. “I am now….Risk-Averse Angel!”
Earlier this week, sources in Vatican City revealed that the Catholic Church has long been unhappy with DC Comics’ use of the term “Caped Crusaders” to describe comic book heroes Batman and Robin. The contention is apparently based on actual historical figures that were the original caped crusaders, the Knights Templar.
The Catholic Church, which boasts an estimated 1.2 billion followers, has decided to produce documents from the period of the Crusades that contain period art showing the Knights with their capes and cloaks. Additionally, tapestries and other art pieces have long been known to exist, but nothing was ever done about it. Their argument states that if anyone has the right to be known as such, it should be the warriors who risked life and limb to protect travelers.
