If you were mildly disappointed with the latest Batman v Superman trailer (although it was far better than the second trailer they released) there’s little to no disappointment to have with the new trailer for the second season of Daredevil.
It’s a lot longer than I was expecting, clocking in at two minutes and 41 seconds. It’s a hard-hitting, no-holds-barred trailer that doesn’t spare the character motivations or intentions at all. In fact, Frank Castle seems at his most uncompromising and psychotic in this rendition of the character for the Netflix exclusive. Check out the broody and captivating trailer below.
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.
He seems to exercise the military tact of Ray Stevenson’s Punisher, the emotional baggage of Thomas Jane’s Punisher, and the mental instability of Dolph Lundgren’s Punisher. It’s literally like a mix of all three, and I’m very fascinated to see how Jon Bernthal will pull that off across the multi-episode second season of Daredevil.
There’s a really frightening, steely-eyed look that Bernthal gives off as if his Punisher is in a real bad mental place. I’m curious how much of his backstory they’re going to delve into over the course of the season or if they’ll keep that a bit of mystery and unfold it all through the violence that Castle unleashes on the criminals across Hell’s Kitchen?
I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for the return of a television show. The Punisher and Nick Fury used to be one of my all time favorite arcade games for a while and I used to play the crap out of it, constantly trying to find all the special moves, hidden secrets and everything else the game had to offer. So I’m glad that the character is getting revived by Marvel after the action-packed but story-deficient outing that was Punisher: Warzone.
Oh yeah and there was a clip of Elektra at the end of the trailer as well. I’m curious how she’ll fit into all of this?
The comment section for the trailer is almost entirely about the second season of Daredevil likely being better than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. You know you’ve done something right when people are already more excited for a television show than a full length motion picture.
