‘Daredevil’ Is Still Missing in First Season 3 Teaser
Details on the upcoming season of Daredevil are still relatively scarce, aside from confirmation of a few returning faces. Based on the events at the end of The Defenders (which also had quite an impact on Danny Rand’s arc in Iron Fist Season 2), Matt Murdock is presumed dead, and judging by Daredevil’s first Season 3 teaser, The Man Without Fear will still be MIA when his Netflix series returns sometime later this year.
