Daredevil Season 2 finally debuts this week on Netflix and Marvel has released a final trailer for the series which teases a new villain who would be facing Matt Murdock.
The first season of Marvel’s hit Netflix drama saw Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) going up against the dangerous criminal mastermind Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) also known as Kingpin. But stakes are raised in Season 2 as the city faces numerous threats from a number of villains making the trailer quite an action-packed sequence.
The latest trailer introduced us to another villain, Daredevil?s former flame Elektra, whom he dated back in his university days. A martial arts expert and a highly-trained assassin of Greek descent, Elektra wields a pair of bladed sai as her trademark weapon. She seeks out his help to take down the Yakuza, but it seems she has ulterior motives as she is supposedly working for The Hand, an evil ninja group wanting to tear the city apart.
Earlier teaser had revealed Murdock facing The Punisher played by Jon Bernthal of The Walking Dead fame. Although Punisher and Daredevil are on the same side, they disagree with each other over the methods used to put down the villains.
The Season 2 tells the backstory of Punisher aka Frank Castle who wages a one-man war against the criminals to seek revenge for the death of his family killed by the mob during a shootout in New York City’s Central Park. His vengeance brings him to Hell’s Kitchen where he faces Murdock. ?You know you?re one bad day away from being me,? he whispers to the Man without Fear.
The new season also sees the return of Scott Glenn as Stick, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple.
“I haven’t told you everything,” Stick says to him in the trailer. “The city is ground zero in a war it doesn’t even know is happening. And everything will change. This war is bigger than everyone.”
But Matt wants to fight the battle alone as he says, “This is a war I need to fight alone. My way.”
The official synopsis of the Daredevil Season 2 reads: ?Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell?s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame ? Elektra Natchios. Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt?s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell?s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.?
Marvel?s Daredevil Season 2, will premiere globally on Netflix on Friday, March 18, 2016 at 12:01am PT.
