Today marks the start of the Chinese New Year, so you know what that means: a new Daredevil season 2 teaser! Well, that’s seemingly what went through the heads of the marketing people at Netflix, who decided that cross-section of people who celebrate this holiday and binge-watch Marvel superhero shows must be large enough to warrant a special teaser trailer. There’s not too much going on here, but it does feature a brief vocal cameo from Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle (otherwise known as the Punisher), so you already know whether or not you want to click play on the video below.

Considering that many modern television shows still half-ass their action scenes with dull coverage cut together in a rapid-fire style, Daredevil was a breath of fresh air. Every fight scene was beautifully shot. Every punch looked like it hurt.
With the second season of the show arriving in a little over a month, news about what we can expect has switched from a slow trickle to geyser mode.
