Saturday 19th May: Vincent D'Onofrio finished filming Daredevil season 3
Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk, who was the main antagonist of season 1 has currently finished filming for season 3. He has been seen in one episode of season 2 and is believed to have been filming the 'Born Again' storyline: *Potential spoilers ahead*
The plot revolves around Fisk learning Daredevil‘s true identity to be Matt Murdock. Karen Page becomes a heroin addict and a struggling pornstar in need of cash. Because of this, she sells Murdock’s personal information to the Kingpin. Fisk, in classic Fisk fashion, proceeds to destroy virtually ever aspect of the hero’s life; from forcing Murdock on the street to attempting a murder by way of drenching him in whiskey, strapping him to a car and pushing him into a river, Fisk truly figured out how to break Matt Murdock. This is only a minor example, though, of the brilliant writing in the comic that puts Murdock and Fisk at odds.
