MCU EXCHANGE – Filming for Luke Cage and Jessica Jones Season 2 may have been underway for a couple of months now but not much is known about the inner workings of Daredevil Season 3 and Iron Fist Season 2 apart from that they’re actually happening. As soon as Daredevil Season 2 ended, Netflix quickly renewed the show for a third season and announced it ASAP with a cool teaser. Apart from that and a very general quote from Charlie Cox last April, we don’t have specific details to go on. Well, that’s about to change now as we can definitely report that the much-awaited third season of Daredevil will begin filming in October of this year, specifically during the month’s later weeks, according to our source close to the production. Just in time for Halloween.
As we mentioned above, the only thing we knew about ‘Ol Hornhead’s 4th appearance in the MCU aside from Season 3 being greenlit was Charlie’s previous comments about the production schedule back in April when he was being interviewed on a UK radio show: “I do that later in the year. We’ll go back and do that.”
Now that we finally have a production month in mind, we have a better idea on how the Marvel Netflix timetable could look like in the next several months. It normally takes one Marvel Netflix season at least 9 months to produce from start date to post-production to its release (6 months for filming. 3 for post-production and marketing). So if Daredevil Season 3 begins in October, we can probably expect them to finish production around July of next year. Now, because the sophomore seasons of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are already halfway done and will likely take precedence in the release schedule, we wouldn’t count on seeing Daredevil Season 3 as soon as that 9-month production period ends. Shooting Luke Cage Season 1 finished almost at the same time as the Daredevil Season 2 but we didn’t see the hero of Harlem debut until August of last year. So the 2018 Marvel Netflix release schedule we see is this: Jessica Jones sometime in the spring, Luke Cage in the summer, and Daredevil in the fall. So pretty much like how the current 2017 schedule looks like. Iron Fist is said to start production in December with an estimated September end date. We wouldn’t have any problem with Netflix shoving that in the winter for our consumption. One Defenders show for every quarter fam!
