Daredevil season 3 has plenty of exciting surprises, but one small detail you may have missed was the revelation as to what Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) actual age is.
The age of a comic book hero may not seem like an important thing, but in some cases, it can be incredibly important. Peter Parker’s adolescence is a major part of his character, it helps the reader relate to him because everyone has been a kid at some point. In the comics, because a character is just an image on a page they can appear to be the same age for decades. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but the great thing about bringing heroes to the world of live-action means that they have to deal with real-world issues like aging.
For instance, Daredevil is a hero whose age seemingly doesn’t matter, but the revelation of this is something that can connect the audience to the fantastical hero, despite his enhanced abilities. It’s an aspect of his character that makes him that much more human and thanks to the latest season of the Marvel/Netflix series, fans can learn how old the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen really is. The hint was pointed out by Reddit user jiseru and although it’s not a huge reveal, Marvel fans should still be cautious of reading ahead if they haven’t seen season 3 of Daredevil just yet. Check out the hero’s possible age in the post below.
Daredevil season 3 has been praised by fans and critics alike, with many citing its huge tonal departure from The Defenders as a major plus for the series. Considering Iron Fist and Luke Cage were both canceled recently, it would make sense for fans of Daredevil to be worried but given the incredible word of mouth from the most recent season of the inaugural Marvel/Netflix program, fans may be lucky enough to return to Hell’s Kitchen at some point in the future.
No fourth season of Daredevil has been announced just yet but we’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding the series as soon as more information becomes available.
