A blind, Catholic lawyer by day, who can see things better than anyone else, dresses up like the devil and acts as a vigilante by night. Talk about contrasts.
As the first Marvel series aired on Netflix, Daredevil: Season One hit audiences with impact. It received widespread critical acclaim and Marvel renewed the show for season two within a fortnight of season one premiering.
Like the 2003 film, Daredevil follows blind lawyer Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox; Stardust, The Theory of Everything) and his plan to deliver justice in Hell’s Kitchen to those let down by the system. Season one saw Murdoch taking on crime boss, and the future Kingpin, Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio; Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Full Metal Jacket), as well as what is arguably one of the best fight scenes to ever appear on film or television. Fans will know the one.
But what can we expect from season two?
Information about villains and storylines for season two is limited. Fisk is behind bars, so he won’t be a central character in this season but that’s not to say he won’t make the occasional appearance. Plus, he’s still yet to become the Kingpin, so he’ll definitely be back.
It’s been known since Marvel announced season two in April last year that Elektra (Elodie Yung: G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) will be making an appearance, but the new character on the roster getting fans excited is Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher (Jon Bernthal: The Walking Dead, Fury). It’s thought that The Punisher will be Daredevil’s main adversary, what with their different work methods and outlooks on killing the bad guys, but who knows.
Season one favourites Foggy Nelson, Karen Page, Stick, and Claire Temple will also be returning for season 2, and if fans weren’t excited enough already, Cox has teased a fight scene that could rival the stunning hallway scene from season one.
All episodes of season 2 will be available on Netflix from Friday March 18.
