Last year, fans were treated with the second season of ‘DAREDEVIL’ where we saw Matt Murdock take on the mysterious Hand and The Punisher, with the help of Elektra (previously teased in Season 1), however in the Season 2 finale, we unfortunately saw the split between Matt Murdock and Foggie Nelson alongside the death of Elektra.
It was clear that the ramifications of Elektra’s death were already appearing when the last scene of Daredevil Season 2 was Matt Murdock revealing his Daredevil persona to Karen Page. However it seems that now we are discovering that Elektra’s death will cause many more ramifications in Matt Murdock’s life.
In an interview with CinemaBlend, Charlie Cox was asked about Matt Murdock’s character in the beginning of ‘THE DEFENDERS’, he responded by saying the following:
“At the end of Daredevil season two, everyone failed, Matt failed, and the consequences were devastating. Six or so months have passed, and he’s had to completely reevaluate everything that he believes, everything that he does. And he’s decided to hang up the suit, as it were. He’s focusing all of his energies on being a pro bono lawyer. And I don’t think he has any interest, really, in being Daredevil anymore.”
It seems that Matt Murdock will be focusing more on his lawyer career than being a vigilante at the beginning of ‘THE DEFENDERS’, it’s currently unknown why Matt decides to become Daredevil again, we’ll have to wait and find out in ‘THE DEFENDERS’
‘THE DEFENDERS’ will be releasing on August 18th with the synopsis reading:
“MARVEL’s THE DEFENDERS follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”
