Daredevil is returning next month, and it looks like the Punisher will be a major thorn in Matt’s side throughout the season.
The newest trailer for season 2 of Daredevil was released on Monday, and it is definitely heavy on the Frank Castle/Punisher aspect of the season. So much so that you had to wonder if the introduction of Elektra was ever going to happen. Then, at the very end, she does appear along with the information that a second trailer will debut on Feb. 25. Sounds to me like that one will focus on Matt’s former girlfriend a lot.
Information posted along with the video by Netflix gives us a good idea of what we can expect this year.
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.
Considering how good season 1 was, it’s going to be hard for me not to call in sick when this debuts and consume it in one sitting… but I’ll try to exert some self control.
Daredevil season 2 will premiere on March 18.
