Season one of Daredevil was hailed as Marvel’s best comic book adaptation to date, and with The Punisher and Elektra set to make their presence felt in season two on March 18th, anticipation among fans is currently at an all-time high.

While we may get the odd TV spot between now and the 18th, another trailer is unlikely to follow the two which have already been released, so what exactly do those tell us about what’s to come when The Man Without Fear makes his return?
