The first season of Daredevil had a damn good villain in Wilson Fisk — one of the best in the MCU, along with Loki and Kilgrave. So how does the show top that in season 2? Well, by bringing on not one but two classic figures to antagonize our poor beleaguered devil of Hell’s Kitchen: a hardcore vigilante known as the Punisher, played by Jon Bernthal, and a dangerous former flame called Elektra, played by Elodie Yung.
The final trailer for Daredevil season 2 debuted earlier this week, but today Netflix served up another little taste of the trials and tribulations to come in the form of a new featurette. This one focuses on Daredevil and the Punisher, with Bernthal and Charlie Cox on hand to talk up their characters. Watch the Daredevil season 2 featurette after the jump. Read More »

We’re just days away from the second season of Daredevil, and by now you probably already know whether you’re in or you’re out. If you tore through season one and can’t wait to return to Hell’s Kitchen, you’ve surely cleared your weekend schedule so you can binge without restriction; if you didn’t care for season one, you probably haven’t bothered keeping up with all the updates on season two anyway.
But just in case a few of you need a nudge into the “in” column, Netflix and Marvel are getting in one last Daredevil trailer just under the wire. And yes, it’s got plenty of Jon Bernthal as the new Punisher and Elodie Yung as the new Elektra. Stick (Scott Glenn), Claire (Deborah Ann Woll), and Foggy (Elden Henson) all make appearances as well. Oh, and Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is there, too. Watch the Daredevil season 2 final trailer after the jump. Read More »

Daredevil season 2 arrives on Netflix in a little over a week and I’m already planning to binge the entire thing in a sitting or two. After all, I’m still high over how much I enjoyed Jessica Jones and the early reviews for this new season suggest that everything that worked about about the first 13 episodes continues to work here. Heck, I’m already planning to have a deep dive on the entire season ready to go the Monday after the premiere. I do this because I care.
And I also do this because there’s a lot of promising stuff going on in Daredevil this season, especially the additions of Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle and Elodie Yung‘s Elektra to the cast. A new teaser has arrived highlighting these new additions, giving us a nice look at their costumes and offering everyone in the comments section something new to fight about.

The first season of Netflix’s Daredevil took ages to put Charlie Cox in costume, only giving the devil of Hell’s kitchen proper superhero duds in the season finale (and for a single action scene). And even then, the outfit was controversial, with some fans grumbling that he should have just stuck with the pirate pajamas look from the rest of the season.
The mixed reactions to Matt Murdock’s uniform haven’t stopped fans from wondering if season two’s new characters, Frank Castle (better known as the Punisher) and Elektra Natchios (better known as, uh, Elektra) would get to wear their classic costumes. A newly released poster answers that question: yes. For the most part.

In case you haven’t heard, /Film was on the set of Captain America: Civil War, witnessing the beginning of the fight between superheroes. We ran the gamut of interviews with stars like Chris Evans, directors Anthony & Joe Russo and more. And in our interview with Marvel producer Nate Moore, the question arose of whether or not we might see Marvel’s TV heroes like Daredevil or Jessica Jones end up on the big screen.
Even though we’ve heard that there’s not much communication or collaboration between Marvel’s film and television divisions, especially with regards to Agents of SHIELD and Inhumans plans, Moore was not opposed to the idea at all. But making something like that happen could prove to be complicated. Find out what he had to say after the jump. Read More »

Keen observers probably noticed that the previous trailer for the second season of Daredevil had the designation of being “part one” and now we know why.

This one brings us a full plate of Elektra Natchios (Elodie Young), who breaks into Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) apartment in order to meet him. Read More »
