Netflix Daredevil Season 2 trailer comes out tomorrow after Marvel and Netflix released a teaser for the new season. The second season of Netflix’s Daredevil will be aired on March 18, and will include 13 episodes just like the first season of the superhero TV show. [Warning: This article contains some Season 1 spoilers.]
The second season comes nearly a year after the first season, which aired on April 10, 2015. The new teaser trailer was released on Sunday as a preview to the Daredevil Season 2 trailer, which is expected to hit the Internet in a matter of hours.
Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2 will see Matt Murdock, or “the man without fear,” played by Charlie Cox face a couple of new Marvel Comics characters in the form of the Frank Castle, or “The Punisher,” and Elektra Natchios, played by Jon Bernthal and Elodie Yung, respectively.
Daredevil season 2 will also see the return of Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Scott Glenn as Stick.
After finally accepting the big responsibility that comes with the power gifted to him in Daredevil Season 1, Matt will now try to juggle life as a Lawyer by day and fighting crime at night in Hell’s Kitchen. Meanwhile, the Punisher is reborn back to Hell’s Kitchen and is driven by revenge and punishment to those who commit crimes. However, his methods are extreme and now Matt has to deal with him, as well.
Daredevil is one of the main Marvel Comics characters and now that the series is entering into its second season, the producers are introducing new Marvel Comics characters to spice it up. Both The Punisher and Elektra have their own standalone films like Daredevil, though Elektra does appear in the Daredevil movie.
In the first season of Netflix’s Daredevil, the first episode received the lowest ratings per IMDB ratings with 8.6/10, while the final episode had the highest ratings of a 9.4/10. Many other episodes scored an average of nine out of 10, which makes it a high scoring series according to IMDB ratings.
Judging by the ratings of the final episode in Season 1, it is possible Daredevil Season 2 faces a huge challenge in outperforming Season 1.
In Daredevil Season 1, the plot pretty much revolved around Matt embracing his powers while the rest of Hell’s Kitchen continued to be amazed by the activities of the fearless vigilante. The media scrambled to try and publish the miraculous moments, and chasing after Daredevil eventually lead to the death of investigative journalist Urich at the hands of Fisk.
Now that Matt has found a perfect costume and embraced his destiny, it would be interesting to see how Daredevil Season 2 develops. Some of the main villains are well known; however, it will be interesting to see how the series will mix up things with Matt Murdock in Hell’s Kitchen.
Perhaps, the upcoming trailer will reveal more of what’s to come. For the moment, the teaser is just more of the same for those who watched Season 1.
Meanwhile, Marvel appears to be pleased with its partnership with Netflix in producing their line of Marvel Comics character-themed TV shows. Besides Daredevil, Netflix has been working with Marvel to launch Jessica Jones and they are also on course to release Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
Netflix is an ad-free network, which means that unlike other distribution networks, shows can run freely without being interrupted to run ads. Perhaps, this is one of the reasons Marvel has already signed up four shows with the network.
The wait for the Daredevil Season 2 trailer is nearly over. Pretty soon, fans can start speculating and predicting what to expect based on the trailer.
