With just under 5 full weeks until its Netflix premiere, the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil finally has a full trailer.
The trailer dispenses with recapping what happened last season, as most of the eyeballs tuning in to watch binged the first season in its first weekend, if not more times (I’m guilty of 2 binges, the second much slower than the first). The city of New York is on shakier ground since Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox) sent Wilson Fisk/Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) packing to prison at the end of season 1. Now, Frank Castle/Punisher (Jon Bernthal) is taking his own brand of shoot-em-up-and-take-em-out vigilantism to the streets, going after gangs on their respective home turfs. Meanwhile, Foggy (Elden Henson), Karen (Deborah Ann Woll), and Claire (Rosario Dawson) are still in Matt’s corner, but their roles seem to be supportive at this point. And then Elektra (Elodie Yung) comes back to town.
So far, season 2 of Daredevil promises to up the fighting ante, just from the Daredevil and Punisher beatdowns in the trailer. And what’s to come from adding Elektra into the mix? We’ll see once the second trailer drops on February 25th.
All 13 episodes of Daredevil season 2 hit Netflix on March 18th.
