Daredevil Season 3 Review (Spoilerish)

By Corey "Salty Truth" Floyd

Season 3 is the long-awaited follow-up from The Fallout of the Defenders series which I am very glad to say will never come back. With Netflix's recent announcement of the cancellation of Iron Fist and Luke Cage I was very skeptic on how to feel about this upcoming season but luckily the first two seasons were absolutely excellent. Well, excellent in comparison to the one good season out of two from Iron Fist, and one-and-a-half good seasons out of Luke Cage. I do believe we have the Punisher coming up in about the next month and a half so, for now, I'm just going to touch on this season of Daredevil and hold judgment on Mr. Castle.

Let’s get to it!
 Unlike Daredevil’s previous seasons, we're Foggy Karen and Matt were this great trio, they're quite scattered in this season. Foggy is working at his new law firm making big money, Karen has hit the ground running as a great reporter, and Matt is actually alleged to be dead. Karen still holds out hope as she still pays Matts and Foggy rent has tried to move on. If you waited till the last shot on the Defenders, you know that Matt Murdock is alive. He’s somewhat well at his church orphanage where he grew up. He’s currently suffering from his injuries of surviving an exploding building and now has complete loss of sight. I mean, he was blind before, but he could still see these weird strains of light, but now it seems that all he sees is darkness. His abilities have now evolved into a form of sonar, like another hero (cough Batman)

We also say hello again to the Kingpin played by The Unbelievable Vincent D'Onofrio who brings this odd socially awkward Crime Boss to the small screen. I say socially awkward because there are times that make me think his version of The Kingpin is on the spectrum of autism. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing it just adds a new layer to the character. We did see him in a few scenes in season two since he was in prison with Frank Castle. Now we return to Kingpin as the main focus. He has some new plans as he cuts deals with the FBI, takes down competition, and tries to get out of prison and bring his lovely girlfriend Vanessa, who hasn't been seen since season one, back home. The Kingpin is basically a snitch for the Feds, he gets his own security detail which includes Dex, played by young actor Wilson Bethel. Dex is Bullseye. They gave Bullseye a very interesting backstory, and you almost went to feel bad for him, but you don't.

There's a lot of psychology going on in this season. there's a lot of moments where Matt Murdock is literally having a mental conversation with The Kingpin or with his father. Kingpin uses this to get into the mind of Dex so he can mold him into the soldier he wants. It's damn good television.

The next segment has Spoilers Ahead!!!
Fisk turns Dex into his own Daredevil. His personal hitman. As the Show reveal Dex was born a messed up parentless child. They aren't that Different Matt and Dex. The real difference I will let you figure out. It was one of the wildest three-way fights I've seen on television. It was awesome. It was amazing. And, it ended with Daredevil winning! Oh, and, Bullseye gets his back broken which happened in the comic book, so double points for Netflix! Triple points because one of the ending scenes had Bullseye on an operator's table being worked on by doctor Oyama. If you are a comic book head you know that dr. Oyama is the guy behind Wolverine's adamantium. Bullseye's new spine is coated with that real shit, son.
 Now in the show, he could not call the material adamantium because the Disney-Fox deal won't be solidified until January 1st, 2019 so maybe after the reboot, it can be called adamantium, Maybe they will also be able to introduce mutants cause you can't do Oyama without mutants!! the future is very weird for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. There's already been an announcement that a Heroes for Hire TV show will be coming out on Hulu since Hulu biggest owner is  Disney. Who's to say that Disney just won't convince Netflix to pack everything up and walk away we've already taken half of it Thanos Style. To be perfectly honest I'm very pissed at the way they canceled Luke Cage. Days before the season 3 premiere of Daredevil and it on such a wild note now for that note to never continue is a personal travesty that I'm just going to have to deal with.  Who's to say it won't happen again with Daredevil or Punisher? Maybe its time for Marvel and Netflix to part ways before more feelings are hurt having good storytelling go to waste.

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.

1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Casting Thoughts By Corey Floyd

Recently John Boyega was seen at Marvel Studios and no one has heard anything since. My thoughts were in the air but an artist Boss Logic made something that got me thinking.   Now hear me out I know it sounds crazy but now that I see it in front of me it’s not crazy at all. We have seen the body transformations from Marvel before. John is in good shape but he’s not in Marve shape in a few months he could be the next Blade. Now I know there a few thousand of you out there yelling “Wesley Snipes is the only Blade blah blah blah “ I like Wesley I really do but at 55 I don’t see him moving like he used to and it’s time for younger blood. He wasn’t even moving like his old self in Blade Trinity.
I’m digging into Iron Heart again. Now a while back I had a few choices on the matter you can check them out here but after watching Black Panther I have a new idea. What if Shuri became Iron Heart? It’s not a far-fetched idea. What if Sta…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.
