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. A second trailer for the new season of the Marvel Studios TV series has just arrived, and just like the first one was all about The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) coming to town. 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 »

The first season of Daredevil fluctuated between wonderful and dull on an episode-by-episode basis, with thrilling subplots and characters butting up against stuff that simple didn’t work at all. The result was a totally watchable mixed bag, a series with a clearly defined identity and a (mostly) killer cast that sagged here and there, spending a few too many episodes spinning its wheels. But hey, that’s why the television gods invented seconds seasons, right? Show us a series that was perfect from moment one and we’ll ask you to pick something other than Friday Night Lights.
Anyway, Daredevil season 2 arrives in less than a month and the reviews have already started to trickle in. Like the first season, the notices so far have been very positive. But also like the first season, everyone seems to agree that there are still nits to be picked. It sounds like we’re getting more of the same, for better and worse.
