daredevil_brThe news we were all waiting for! Daredevil Season 1 is set to be released on DVD on November 08, 2016! There’s no information yet about the content, but hopefully there’ll be some DVD extras as well! Announced pricing is $39.99 and you can already pre-order it on Amazon. There’s no news yet about the series to be released on Blu-ray as well.

As a child Matt Murdock was blinded by a chemical spill in a freak accident. Instead of limiting him it gave him superhuman senses that enabled him to see the world in a unique and powerful way. Now he uses these powers to deliver justice, not only as a lawyer in his own law firm, but also as vigilante at night, stalking the streets of Hell’s Kitchen as Daredevil, the man without fear.


One of the most exciting things to happen in the world of comic books and superheroes in recent years has been Netflix teaming with Marvel Television to make great streaming shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

One of the standouts from the Daredevil show has been Vincent D’Onofrio’s portrayal of Wilson Fisk AKA Kingpin, who has been a thorn in Daredevil’s side on the show just as he has been in the comics.

While the Daredevil show has been put on hold as Marvel Television works on their other Marvel characters like Luke Cage (streaming next Friday, September 30!), Iron Fist and The Defenders, many have wondered if we might see the Kingpin in some of these other shows, particularly the latter, since he has been such a big presence in Daredevil’s life.

D’Onofrio was in Toronto last week promoting director Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven (out Friday, September 23), in which he plays an equally interesting character named Jack Horne, a frontiersman who joins Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt to save a town terrorized by a villain.

When LRM sat down with the actor, we eventually got around to talking about his TV efforts including playing Kingpin, and he told us how he isn’t signed on to do any more i.e. no multiple picture (or in this case, season) contract like some actors that are cast in Marvel properties or television shows. But D’Onofrio also told us how much he and Netflix love the character and the writing on the show and that he will be there when they do call.

This is what he told us:

“Marvel, the company, and especially Jeff Loeb, who runs Marvel Television, he’s a clever dude. All those people over there are pretty clever and they love talent. There’s no giant commitment for me at Daredevil. Like I didn’t have to sign my life away at all. When Jeff tells me there’s something coming up and if I’m available, I’ll be there. And because it’s written so well, I’m going to show up. I’m going to do everything I can because the writing is so good. And then there’s a company like Netflix and they’re not pressuring you either. They just want good material, good content. They give you money to make good content, so they’re not pressuring actors to sign their life away either…. I think that there’s this common ground where they say, ‘Look, if the material is good are you going to show up?’ and I said, ‘Definitely’.”

When asked directly about when Kingpin’s story might be continued, D’Onofrio said:

“That I can’t answer. I do know, but I can’t answer… so take that how you will. Jeff and Charlie (Cox) and Netflix love Kingpin, and so, Kingpin is good for Marvel’s television stuff and I think they agree.”

Daredevil / News

Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil first bucked our conceptions of the four Defenders series with a second season, so it’s only fitting ol’ Hornhead continue the trend at Comic-Con 2016. Even as Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders gear up for 2017, Marvel and Netflix confirm Daredevil Season 3 will arrive sometime thereafter.

Amid the flurry of Marvel Netflix news, Luke Cage’s Comic-Con 2016 panel confirmed that Daredevil would indeed return for Season 3, albeit without specifying any details. Netflix released a clever teaser, however, splashing a bit of blood on the New York subway’s 1-2-3 lines running through Hell’s Kitchen.

Granted, Daredevil Season 2 certainly left dangling a number of potential threads for Season 3, between Elektra’s fate, Wilson Fisk or Matt’s relationship with Karen, though the simultaneous Defenders teaser seemed to confirm that Scott Glenn’s Stick and The Hand would play a role in the preceding team-up miniseries. Not only that, but where Jessica Jones Season 2 was said to film back-to-back with The Defenders into 2017, it remains unclear when Daredevil Season 3 would enter production.


Captures / Daredevil

I have added screencaptures from Daredevil Season 2. To our greatest delight, Wilson Fisk showed up at the end of Episode 8 to have a centered episode in Seven Minutes in Heaven, facing off The Punisher! Check out the screencaptures from the 3 episodes he appeared in!


Charlie Cox recently talked with about Daredevil’s new Season and his hope for Season 3. Check out the full interview at the source!

I’d also like personally, again if we continue to make the Daredevil series, rather than have a new character every season I’d love us to explore more of the Wilson Fisk stuff. It’d be great if at some point Vincent D’Onofrio would come back for a season. There’s so much Daredevil-Wilson Fisk left untold. As he really came into his own, as Wilson Fisk turned into the Kingpin at the end of season one, I’d love to see what that now does to the Daredevil-Fisk dynamic going forward if we were to do a season 3 or 4 or whatever.
