Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 on Netflix: Five Comic Book Arcs That Should Be Adapted for TV

Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 has been set for a 2018 release. But after the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung), what else can the superhero series bring to Netflix? Since his first appearance in 1964, the Man Without Fear has been through many countless adventures and here are five comic book stories that could make it to the small screen.

Born Again

Born Again is the popular comic book series from the 1986 wherein Wilson Fisk/Kingpin discovered that Matt Murdock is Daredevil. As a result, the villain used all his energy and resources to bring him down.

First, the Kingpin blew up Matt’s apartment. And then, he sent an army of goons to kill him. Matt wandered the streets of New York City homeless and about to lose his mind.

Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix seems to be heading toward darker territories as Matt drifts away from his friends, Foggy Nelson and Karen Page. The Kingpin is also now hot on the vigilante’s trail. It might only be a matter of time before secrets get revealed.

Shadowland

Another popular comic book arc is Shadowland. Created in 2010, the series presented Matt Murdock as the leader of his former enemies, the ninja organization known as The Hand. After getting possessed by the demon, The Beast, Matt Murdock, started striking down criminal activity in Hell’s Kitchen with the help of The Hand. He also built a prison in the middle of the city.

If the Netflix series adapts this series, it can open the doors for the possibility of crossovers. His fellow The Defenders, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, played sizeable parts in Shadowland. 

The prison smack in the middle of New York also attracted the attention of the Avengers. Perhaps, this can finally allow some unity in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.

Out

This 2002 story arc features Sammy Silke, a close friend of Wilson Fisk, who discovers the civilian identity of Daredevil. Frustrated that Wilson Fisk refused to “out” him, Sammy Silke leaks that Matt Murdock is, indeed, the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. The police, then, passed on the scoop to The Globe tabloid which printed the story.

As a result, Matt Murdock was plagued with press camping outside his door and watching his every move. Some of his superhero friends even decided to help him out.

After his stint in Marvel’s The Defenders, it would be exciting to see the non-team come together again in Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 to help out the blind lawyer/vigilante.

Daredevil #25

While the rest of the list offers bleak stories from the life of the character, Matt Murdock, this arc from 1963 introduced one of the goofiest characters in the Daredevil mythos: Mike Murdock. This rather goofy beloved series saw Matt Murdock create a fake twin brother in order to trick Foggy and Karen into thinking that this man is the real Daredevil.

While it does not really fit into the show’s serious tone, it still will be fun to see Mike Murdock appear at some point. Even just for the laughs to break the dark theme of the show.

Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 will land on the smalls screen in 2018.
