Finally we have our first full length trailer for Daredevil season 2. You will find it linked below from the main Netflix YouTube channel. The first trailer gives us a solid look at Marvel’s new take on the Punisher as well as the dark overall tone which carries over from season 1. We see glimpses of Punisher’s past (including the murder of his wife and child), scenes of destruction, and brief snippets of dialogue between Daredevil and Punisher. It seems as though the actions of Matt Murdoch in season 1 will be a big driver in the creation of Punisher or at least that’s how Karen Page sees it.
“We never stopped to think that Daredevil’s actions could open up the door to men like this.”
It was announced back in June 2015 that Joe Bernthal would be playing Frank Castle in the Netflix series but we knew little other than that he would act as the main adversary in the second season. Bernthal will be familiar to some as Shane Walsh from the popular TV show The Walking Dead.
In the final closing scene of the trailer we also get a tease for Elektra. Given the focus on Punisher in trailer one it seems logical that the second trailer will have a similar level of focus on Elektra Natchios. In the comics, Elektra is an old flame of Matt Murdoch who often takes the role of anti-hero villain. A deadly assassin, she is more than able to hold her own in a fight against Daredevil. The next trailer for season 2 will debut on the 25th February with all episodes of season 2 dropping on Netflix 18th March.
