A leaked image from the set of the second season of ‘Daredevil’ appears to show Matt Murdock and Karen Page holding hands.
In the photo, British actor Charlie Cox who stars as the title character, wears a black suit. He appears to be taking an evening stroll with Deborah Ann Woll, who plays Karen Page.
In addition to a possible romance between Matt Murdock and Karen Page, Daredevil season two will introduce Elodie Young as Elektra. In the comics, Elektra is Murdock’s love interest but their romance is eventually destroyed by Elektra’s aggressive nature and mercenary ways. Another new character will be Frank Castle, more widely known as “The Punisher,” to be played by Jon Bernthal.
Rosario Dawson who stars as the nurse Claire Temple, will be reprising her role in the next season. In an interview with MTV, Dawson commented on the new character saying, “That’s going to raise the stakes so much more, because Matt Murdock almost behaves like the Punisher in the first season. [Matt] crosses the line quite often, so it’s going to be really interesting to see how they differentiate them and where that goes.”
Marvel chief creative officer Joe Quesada has also spoken about casting Elodie Young as Elektra saying, “I can’t say enough about Elodie Yung. Literally, we scoured the world for the right Elektra and, man, she is the character. She looks like the character, she walks like the character, and then she has the martial arts training and stunt background that she can rely on.”
Netflix released all thriteen episodes of Daredevil season 1 in April this year. According to a report from Screen Rant, Marvel is planning to create a show entitled “The Defenders.” The series will feature Daredevil as also other Marvel Universe characters including Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, each of whom will have their own shows.
