Hell’s Kitchen is getting crowded, and we’re not talking about the 150,000+ fans who flocked to the Javits Center for New York Comic Con this weekend. We’re talking about two heavyweight characters coming to Daredevil Season 2, set in a fictional (and far less gentrified) version of Hell’s Kitchen.
Marvel and Netflix unveiled the first teaser for the next run of Daredevil episodes at their NYCC panel, and included in it were our first looks at Elektra (Élodie Yung) and the Punisher (Jon Bernthal). Watch the Daredevil Season 2 teaser after the jump. Read More »

Steven DeKnight had to leave Marvel’s Daredevil series to direct a feature film, so he will not be working on season two, which features The Punisher.
DeKnight was around when they discussed bringing Frank Castle, who will be played by Jon Bernthal, into the show, and he was at the Television Critics Association summer press tour today for Netflix’s Showrunners panel. After the panel, I approached DeKnight to ask if this could finally be a chance to do The Punisher right after three wildly different movies starring Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. The good news is that the Daredevil season 2 Punisher may be the closest to the comics version we’ve seen on screen. Read More »
Netflix’s first Marvel Studios series Daredevil was an instant hit, even if our tendency to binge shows means we’re not talking much about the show anymore, there’s plenty to be excited about for the forthcoming second season.
Jon Bernthal has joined the series as The Punisher, and Elodie Yung landed the role of Elektra, all for a season that also brings new showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, replacing Spartacus producer Steven S. DeKnight.
Now another new talent has come on board behind the scenes as OZY (via ScreenCrush) reports Swedish cinematographer Martin Ahlgren will be lensing the second season of Daredevil, fresh off his previous Emmy-nominated work with Netflix on eleven out of thirteen episodes in the third season of House of Cards.
