The first Monday in October has arrived, so it’s time for a new Super Power Unlimited! All the news from the superhero entertainment world, Power Unlimited lists for you. Today we see a traditional Kingpin in Daredevil Season 3, Jake Gyllenhaal’s villain on a set video of the new Spider-Man movie and deleted scenes from Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Welcome to the third Super Power Unlimited, the section in which we have collected the superhero news from the past few days for you. This time a full Marvel edition with Daredevil, Venom, Deadpool, Spider-Man and Ant-Man.
Daredevil season 3 teaser features classic Kingpin
With more than two weeks to go until the release of the third season of Daredevil, more information about the story and characters is slowly pouring in. Last weekend, fans got a nice shot in a season 3 teaser. Wilson Fisk finally dons his signature white comics costume, while a battered Matt Murdock seems to be falling back on his Man in Black outfit from the first season. An inevitable second round between the Devil of Hells Kitchen and the king of the underworld seems to be coming in the third season. Daredevil season 3 is on Netflix from October 19.
Director Venom explains PG-13 rating
Director Ruben Fleischer has explained the lower age limit for Venom. For a long time we thought that the new film about Marvel’s famous anti-hero would turn out to be very violent. The Deadpool movies and James Mangolds Logan previously showed that a superhero movie with a lot of blood and brutal kills can do very well.
The announcement that Venom would be for ages 12 and up raised some eyebrows. Ruben Fleischer explains the choice for a lower age limit during a press conference:
We didn’t want to make a movie that excluded any fans, ”he says. Venom fans actually are of all ages, and so we wanted to be inclusive to all the fans that were excited about the movie.
So Fleischer never wanted to make an adult Venom movie so that the younger fans can just go to the movies. For that reason, there will be no 16+ directors cut for Venom. Fleischer did want to push the violence towards the extreme of the permissible. A scene in which a Chinese village is wiped out by a symbiote and a scene in which someone’s chest and several heads are pierced are examples of this.
The horrific events were filmed in such a way that the strict requirements of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) are still met. Fleischer took inspiration for this from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight:
It does such a great job of delivering an intense, action-packed film that didn’t pull any punches
Finally, Fleischer mentioned the age limit for Venom in England, where the film gets a 15 rating. This means that, even under the supervision of an adult, a child is not allowed to go to the movies if he or she is not 15 years or older. Venom will run in Dutch cinemas from Wednesday 3 October.
Deadpool is getting re-release with lower age limit in US
To stay within the age limits, Fox is bringing Deadpool 2 back to theaters seven months after its original release. This time with a PG-13 rating, so that younger fans can also enjoy a slightly less rude Wade Wilson.
For a long time the adapted Deadpool print as an Untitled Deadpool movie was planned, but Deadline reported that it is therefore a new version of Deadpool 2. With seven months after the release of Deadpool 2, it makes sense that no completely new Deadpool movie is being made. It would be a record if the filmmakers secretly managed to shoot an entire movie. It is not known whether we can expect the modified version of Deadpool 2 in any way in the Dutch theaters.
Spider-Man: Far from Home set video shows Jake Gyllenhaal’s villain
There has been speculation in recent months about the role that Jake Gyllenhaal would play in the new Spider-Man movie. Many people were convinced that the celebrated actor would take on the role of Mysterio, and the set video below seems to support this belief.

The images show the Far from Home film set, in which Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal face each other. It seems that Spidey has beaten his opponent after a big fight, judging by the devastated environment and the body language of especially Gyllenhaal (right in the picture). Security services seem to enter the scene in black cars.
The costume Gyllenhaal wears is very similar to the suit worn by the Master of Illusion in traditional comics, supplemented with elements from the Ultimate Universe. Mysterio’s costume is more technologically designed in that universe. Unfortunately, the images are not of good quality, so we cannot see green and purple colors. Mysterio’s signature plexiglass helmet is also missing. Marvel and Sony have not yet confirmed Gyllenhaal’s role.
Two deleted scenes from Ant-Man and the Wasp
The blu-ray release of Ant-Man and the Wasp is scheduled for October 16 and from tomorrow the most recent adventure of the ant man can already be viewed digitally. USA Today released two deleted scenes this past weekend featuring villain Sonny Burch and the Quantum Realm. You can view the images below.

The first scene shows how Burch (Walton Goggins) discovers the potential of the Pym Particles, the second scene shows how Janet van Dyne explores the Quantum Realm together with Hank Pym. The imaginative dimension in the MCU is loosely based on the Microverse in the comics and populated for countless races.
This was it again, the first Super Power Unlimited of October. A real Marvel edition this time with established heroes and villains. For more Marvel news, check out the Captain Marvel trailer or the hi-res concept art of Avengers 4.
