‘Daredevil’ Adds Punisher, Elektra, More For Season 2 In New Spoilers [Photos]

Viewers can’t be more excited about the second season of Daredevil, which is coming to Netflix. MSN shared that they are picking up the pace in season 2 and the spoilers are starting to come out. They will be adding several new characters, and pictures are starting to be revealed. After season 1, Daredevil did change showrunners, but it looks like everything will still be just fine for season 2 of Daredevil. Showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are now taking over on Daredevil, and it looks like fans are going to be just fine with how it turns out.

They will be introducing Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher right away in season 2 of Daredevil. The Punisher will be played by Jon Bernthal, who was on The Walking Dead. Jon Bernthal is a great addition to the show, and viewers can’t wait to see how he does in the part of The Punisher. They will be introducing him in the very first episode and not waiting a few episodes in like they did with Kingpin last season. Here is what Petrie shared about showing this new character on Daredevil right away.

“The advantage of any sequel is you can dive right in. We hit the ground running and then we ran as fast as we f—ing could.”

The Punisher simply kills everyone that is a criminal that he can find. This Daredevil character is an ex-Special Forces soldier with a tragic past who becomes a New York vigilante. Spoilers say that viewers are going to love what he is doing in the first few episodes, but that could quickly change. The Punisher will actually use guns on Daredevil as well, which is a bit of a twist. The Man Without Fear will also be on the show this season as well. Petrie explained more about his thoughts.

Viewers watching the show will be rooting for this guy with a gun but we’re also going to force people — the way we force Matt — to second-guess themselves. Taking lethal justice into your own hands in America in 2015 is tricky s–t. We have not shied away from the rich complicated reality of Now. If you’ve got a gun and you’re not the police you’re going to incite strong feelings. We’re stirring the pot and we’re aware of the headlines where we live and we’re trying to get people to think.

Season 2 of Daredevil is also said to be a lot steamier when it comes to the sex. They kept things pretty toned down in this department in season 1, but don’t expect them to do the same again. You are not going to want to miss the changes this season on Daredevil, and remember, since it is on Netflix, they can get away with a bit more.

Another new character joining Daredevil in season 2 is going to be Elektra. Movie Web shared that Elektra is coming and there is even a first look of her below. Elodie Young will be playing this character, and it has been revealed that she will be Matt Murdock’s girlfriend. Elektra should be a great addition to Daredevil, and fans are really going to enjoy watching their love story.

Are you happy to see the new characters on Daredevil on Netflix? The new season of Daredevil will be airing sometime in 2016, but an exact date for season 2 has not been revealed yet. Hopefully it won’t be long before Netflix reveals when season 2 of Daredevil will be here, but while you wait you have plenty of time to catch up on season 1.
