Marvel and Netflix's third season of Daredevil is officially out and available to stream with both new and returning cast of characters. It has been three years since the first season of the Matt Murdock focused series debuted, and the last time viewers saw him in The Defenders, he left in worse shape than he began. But, his return was already guaranteed thanks to his solo series already being renewed for a third season.
The lead up to the new season has been filled with promotional materials teasing a return to the basics, or more accurately season one's form, for Daredevil. Matt is going back to the black suit and his old foe is returning to terrorize his life again. With a new villain also joining the mix, Matt and his friends will be put in harms way more than once throughout the new season. There's going to be the usual cast of characters popping up, but also some new ones, so here is a guide to who is going to be featured in season 3.
Charlie Cox Is Daredevil
Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock - The devil of Hell's Kitchen will return to his city in season 3, after The Defenders' finale left Matt Murdock dead in the public's eye. He won't be fully healed by the time he makes his return, and he won't have time to get back in shape before he's forced to suit up once again. This will be the third solo season that Charlie Cox stars in as Daredevil, but viewers may also know him from his prior work on Boardwalk Empire.
Vincent D'Onofrio Is Kingpin
Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk - The powerful businessman known as the Kingpin was foiled by Daredevil in the first season of the series. Fisk was locked away at Ryker's Island, where he eventually met Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and also had an encounter with Matt Murcock in an interrogation room, but he will be freed from his cell for season 3. He'll turn the city against Daredevil by any means necessary to restore his place as its true hero, in his eyes. Outside of his incredible work on Daredevil, D'Onofrio is known for his early memorable roles in Men in Black and Full Metal Jacket, while more recently starring in Jurassic World and The Magnificent Seven.
Wilson Bethel Is Bullseye
Wilson Bethel as Agent Benjamin Poindexter - The new antagonist for season 3 of Daredevil is one fans have been waiting years for. After a tease of his existence in season 1, it is just now that Bullseye is actually being introduced. Poindexter is an FBI agent who Fisk will get involved with. Based on the marketing for the new season, we know that Bullseye will actually be suiting up as another version of Daredevil. With this being Bethel's debut in Netflix's Marvel world, viewers may know him from his major roles in Hart of Dixie and The Astronaut Wives Club.
Daredevil Season 3's Additional Returning Cast
Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page - Karen has rebuilt her life since first encountering Matt Murdock, as she's now a journalist for the New York Bulletin. Matt revealed his heroic alter ego to her at the end of season 2, but she's in the dark about him still being alive. They will reunite in season 3, but their relationship won't be the same now. Outside of her Marvel role, viewers may know Woll best for her role as Jessica Hamby in True Blood.
Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson - The other half of the law firm formerly known as Nelson & Murdock, Foggy is also still under the belief that his former best friend is dead. He won't take his surprise return too well, and will likely only splinter their relationship as the season unfolds. Many may recognize Henson from The Mighty Ducks trilogy or his more recent appearance in the final two Hunger Games: Mockingjay films, as well as his cameos in other Marvel shows.
Amy Rutberg as Marci Stahl - Despite a previous relationship and break up, Marci and Foggy have reignited their love. The former lawyer for Landman and Zack was looking for a new place of work and could find that now. Rutberg has appeared in several major TV shows in the past, such as NCIS: New Orleans most recently.
Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa Marianna - A major part of season one, Vanessa was forced to leave Fisk in order to protect herself. Now that he is being released from prison, she'll return to be with him once again. Zurer previously appeared in the recent Ben-Hur remake and was also Superman's mother Lara Lor-Van in Man of Steel.
Daredevil Season 3's New Cast
Joanne Whalley as Sister Maggie - Arguably the biggest new addition to season 3 is Matt Murdock's (comic) mother, Sister Maggie. She will have a pivotal role in getting Matt back to health, but may not be exactly like her comic counterpart. Whalley has previously been seen in Wolf Hall, The White Princess, and The Borgias.
Jay Ali as Rashul Nadeem - When he was cast for season three, Nadeem was described as "an honest, but ambitious FBI agent willing to go to any length for his family." Ali previously recurred on The Fosters and Bloomers.
Lesley Ann Warren as Mrs. Falib - Warren was a late addition to the cast of Daredevil as far as official announcements come. Marvel confirmed her casting just a few weeks ago, months after she filmed her part as a woman described to have "high morals and steely resolve." This could put her in Fisk's crosshairs, as she also is "uncompromising in her beliefs, even if it means making powerful enemies."
