WASHINGTON, Feb. 26, 2016 – Rejoice, “Daredevil” TV series junkies. Matt Murdock—aka Marvel’s blind superhero Daredevil—and his pals will return to Netflix March 18 for Series 2, in which the already dark side of the city becomes even darker.
That’s because “The Punisher” is coming to the ‘hood, bringing with him an extra measure of vigilante super-violence that goes way beyond mere crimefighting.
Even more intriguing, Marvel’s also-legendary Elektra will be making an appearance.
Why so interesting?
As Elektra fans already know, Elektra Natchios once had a thing going with Matt Murdock back in the day, at least in Marvel comics.
Will the flames of romance be kindled once again, given Elektra’s current line of work?
And how will “The Punisher,” aka Frank Castle, make life more difficult for Matt and Daredevil? We can only imagine, though the clues are there.
Frank does have a tendency to litter the landscape with dead and maimed evildoers. And Elektra? She’s lethal, too. And she’s for hire.
You’d think Daredevil had earned a little peace after putting Wilson Fisk away. Then again, it’s 2016 and, like Daredevil, we all live in a world that’s dominated by bad guys of all stripes. (Psst, Elektra… want a gig in Washington, DC?) An urban superhero’s work is never done.
Netflix has just posted its second trailer for “Daredevil” Season Two.
We have them both right here in case you missed them.
See you on March 18, when Netflix makes the whole season available for streaming and when we make our first impressions available right here.
