Season 3 of Marvel’s “Daredevil” on Netflix returns to the basics in the best way possible. Gone is Matt Murdock’s fancy suit, gone are his superhero friends, and back is the welcome return of Vincent D’Onofrio‘s menacing Wilson Fisk. This means no crossovers, no superpowers, and much higher stakes. Factoring into these decisions was a creative change in the form of a new showrunner for the Devil Of Hells Kitchen’s third season. Marvel appointed former “Arrow” and “The Man in the High Castle” producer and writer Erik Oleson as the shows new creative head, and it paid dividends.
I had a chance to speak with Oleson about all things Season 3 including his vision’s comic arc inspirations, conceiving and executing fight sequences, how his spy background factored into the season’s narrative, Bullseye, his thoughts on “Iron Fist” getting the axe, and much more.
