Once upon a time, Marvel made a deal with Netflix to produce a bunch of ground-level comic book shows that would eventually come together to form a Defenders team. It was a super cool idea that I bailed on somewhere in the middle of Luke Cage.
But there were good things along the way. Jessica Jones was great. Jon Bernthal’s Punisher is a slam dunk (so far), and we got a really incredible interpretation of Wilson Fisk (aka The Kingpin) from Vincent D’Onofrio.
So it’s nice to know good things are coming back with the bad. Yes, there will be a third season of Daredevil, but at least Wilson Fisk is returning with it. D’Onofrio’s minor (but so so good) involvement in season two was kept as a fun surprise. Coming out with this news so early (the show hasn’t even started shooting yet) indicates a larger role for D’Onofrio this time around and I am likely showing up for that, even if the rest of the show ends up being kind of irritating (looking at you Froggy).
