Daredevil Season 3 Gets A New Showrunner; Kingpin Set To Return

Daredevil Spoilers Season 3 Wilson Fisk

Fisk will again be portrayed by Vincent D'Onofrio, who gave a mesmerizing performance in the first season of the comic-book-inspired hit-a slow burn punctuated by startling bursts of violence and rage.

Marvel has announced that D'Onofrio will indeed return as Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin in Daredevil season 3, with the season now confirmed to premiere on Netflix sometime in 2018. Erik Oleson will take over as showrunner from Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie. D'Onofrio's portrayal of the classic villain provided conflict as well as relatability for Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock.

However, we do know that Daredevil's third season will also see a new showrunner taking over the reins. Sure, he's iconic enough to live on guest appearances alone, as was the case when he appeared in Episodes 8, 9 and 10 of Season 2.

Oleson, most recently an executive producer and writer on Amazon's The Man in the High Castle, more than made his superhero bones from spending a season and more as a co-EP on the CW's Arrow.

Eric Bledsoe sent home from team meeting, Suns looking for trade partner
The Knicks are among the teams who have reached out to Phoenix recently about trading for guard Eric Bledsoe , per league sources. The organization, sources said, argues that the team hasn't improved since Bledsoe took over the bulk of the playmaking duties.

Based on the events of The Defenders and the end of the second season of Daredevil, Matt Murdock may have bigger fish to fry than the Kingpin, but the Kingpin wants his revenge.

The news of D'Onofrio coming back is an exciting prospect.

This isn't the first time the show has changed showrunners, though, as that duo replaced Steven S. DeKnight from the first season. But without Fisk, or indeed any entity, puppeteering the operation, there was a general lack of villainous direction in the show. GQ notes that when Fisk got to meet with Murdock in prison, he vowed to destroy the lawyer's life, knowing that he was secretly Daredevil. Loeb added, "We're very excited how Marvel's Daredevil develops through the creative lens and guidance of our new showrunner, Erik Oleson". But Netflix hasn't indicated when to expect the next seasons of any of the individual series, including the second seasons of "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage" (which are in the works).
