The second season of Daredevil is almost here, and Netflix has dropped a final trailer to ensure we’re fully psyched for Matt Murdock’s return.
This cut includes a ton of new footage and actually sets up a whole lot of the real plot that looks to drive the back half of the season. We get some new shots of The Punisher, Elektra kicking butt and taking names, and Daredevil showing he is just as fierce in that new suit he picked up in the final episode of Season 1. Oh, and there look to be a whole lot of Yakuza ninja fights.
Having seen the first seven episodes, we can attest to the fact that Season 2 is a worthy followup to the acclaimed first season, taking some surprising twists and turns along the way. Jon Bernthal's Punisher is like nothing we've ever seen before and makes for an organic expansion of the New York we've come to know in Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Which, judging by the footage here, it looks like we’ve only just scratched the surface of what’s coming.
Here’s the official synopsis for Season 2:
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.
The full second season drops Friday, March 28, on Netflix.
