The first trailer for the highly anticipated second season of Daredevil is finally here, and it puts the spotlight very much on Jon Bernthal’s (The Walking Dead) Frank Castle/The Punisher. As fans of the comic books will know, he became a vigilante following the murder of his wife and children, but unlike Daredevil, Castle acts as judge, jury, and executioner.
Surprisingly, it appears as if Daredevil season two will focus almost entirely on the battle between the Man Without Fear and The Punisher, though this footage makes it clear that their relationship will be a complicated one, especially when both Castle and those around Matt Murdock bring up the fact that The Man Without Fear isn’t all that different to him.
With a premiere date of March 18th set by Netflix, we’ll soon have the chance to find out how this is all going to play out, but it seems as if there are still lots of surprises in store.
Right at the very end of the trailer we get to see Elodie Yung’s Elektra, and a title card promises that a second look at the series will come later this month. That one will presumably put the spotlight on her, so there’s clearly still a lot about Daredevil season two to be revealed. For now though, here’s The Punisher waging war on Hell’s Kitchen…
Update! Here’s the promised second half of the trailer featuring our first proper look at Elektra.
