Everything about the new season of Daredevil points to darkness, and new images released today by Netflix are certainly no exception. Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) has gone so dark he’s literally back to the black ninja look, foregoing the red, iconic Daredevil suit of Season 2. According to a new synopsis (already released today with a new trailer), Matt’s journey this season will be struggling between being a hero, and wanting to hide away from the world (embracing brutality, something he’s expressed in previous trailers):
Missing for months, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) reemerges a broken man, putting into question his future as both vigilante Daredevil and lawyer Matthew Murdock. But when his archenemy Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is released from prison, Matt must choose between hiding from the world or embracing his destiny as a hero.
