As someone who was horrifically, irreparably scarred by the Daredevil movie, Netflix and Marvel’s Daredevil series came as such a welcome gift last year. Dark, violent, morally questionable, it was damn near everything I love from the comics, and all of those elements are set to get cranked way up in Season 2 with the introduction of the Punisher. Check out the latest trailer for Daredevil Season 2 and try not to squeal with glee.
“You’re one bad day away from being me.” Dammit that’s a perfect line. I can’t wait to see Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) and his take on the Punisher. This is going to be grim, vicious stuff, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Here’s a synopsis that reminds you that Elektra is also going to show up in Daredevil Season 2. That sound you hear is me clapping like an idiot child.
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.
Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.
Daredevil Season 2 hits Netflix in its entirety on March 18.
