While the “first look” issue showcasing the second season of Netflix’s “Daredevil” does not hit stands until next week, Entertainment Weekly has put up the article itself online…minus most of the photos, of course. Still, we have received one nice glimpse of Daredevil himself facing off against Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle (aka The Punisher) and another has leaked giving a (less sharp) look at the assassin Elektra (Elodie Yung).
The article as a whole, which is well worth your time, goes into detail about The Punisher’s place in the series, their characterization of him, and exactly how soon into Season 2 we will see the kill-crazy vigilante. Here’s a sample of what new showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez had to say…
“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,” Petrie says. “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.”
No official premiere date has been set for Marvel’s second season of “Daredevil” on Netflix. It is, however, currently expected to debut sometime in April, just as it did this year. Are you excited to see Hell’s Kitchen turned into a war zone by the Punisher? We are!
