11-minute ‘Daredevil’ fight scene in season 3 has fans freaking out

I’m not sure if being the guy who builds hallways for Marvel films and shows is the best job or the worst. Between the Russo brothers tearing up a stairwell in Captain America: Winter Soldier and Daredevil’s signature knockdown single-shot brawls, it’s clearly a good racket. To the surprise of few, Daredevil is back with yet another fist fight that’s got fans freaking out.

This go-around, instead of a three-minute hallway brawl or a five-minute stairwell tussle, we’re treated to an 11-freakin’-minute sequence set in a high security prison that features multiple stuntmen, several different fights-within-fights, a bit of story progression thanks to a pivotal dialogue exchange, and no small amount of blood.

You can watch a four-minute clip of it below, but for the whole thing you’ll have to log in to Netflix and watch episode four of the new season.

It’s the no-holds-barred, messy, grisly kind of action sequence Daredevil is known for. It’s not quite the manic stab-fest of something like The Raid 2’s prison fight scene, but it’s impressive nonetheless, and I just love how you can feel Murdock fighting for every inch of ground until he’s reached safety. Here’s what Twitter had to say about it:

We’ll take good Marvel news where we can get it, considering Luke Cage has been cancelled after only two seasons, despite strong fan reception.
