After sitting out the second season and the entire Hand affair, Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is readying his return to Manhattan and as the cast and crew of Daredevil discuss in this new featurette, it will not be an easy thing for Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox).
It can now be said that I’ve seen a good portion of the season and D’Onofio is on fire as Fisk. Without getting into specifics, his power to manipulate people is on full display, as his ability to size them and play to their weaknesses. Though executive producer Erik Oleson previously said the season is not a direct adaptation of “Born Again,” its shadow can be felt in a number of places. But it is, perhaps, felt the strongest in Fisk’s actions throughout the first half of the season and at least one direct quote from the Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli story.
I’ll also admit I’ve always been a little cold on Daredevil, but judging from the first half, this is the best season yet.
Daredevil returns Friday on Netflix.
