The highly anticipated second season of Netflix’s “Daredevil” is almost here, featuring Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) dealing with an ethical dilemma as Frank Castle also known as The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) comes to his city, Hell’s Kitchen.
The lawyer by day, hero-vigilante at night is known for beating up bad guys without killing them. Instead, he puts them behind bars like what happened to Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) during the freshman run. However, The Punisher is more brutal and believes in murdering his enemies. In a trailer he said to Daredevil, “You’re one bad day away from being me.” The overarching plot for season 2 is expected to revolve around the debate over the possibility of going outside the law to enforce the good and Murdock’s guilt and self-doubt from his Catholic upbringing.
Another anti-hero joining them is Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung) who is Murdock’s ex-lover. She is described as a bored, spoiled little rich girl. It was teased that she wants to have him back in her life after 10 years of no communication as she is dealing with her father’s investments in a so-called evil corporation, Roxxon.
Meanwhile crossing over from “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” is Defense Attorney Reyes, played by Michelle Hurd who bullies Murdock in some situations. Legal assistant Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) thinks that the lawyer has other motives in persecuting costumed vigilantes other than pure justice.
The cast members alongside new show runners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez recently had the series’ red carpet premiere in New York City.
In an interview, Bernthal shared his thoughts about The Punisher stating, “This character that’s been revered, respected and adopted by members of law enforcements and the military. I look at it as a responsibility and I really hope people dig it.” Cox also suggested that it is a different show from last year, “It’s on the same path but you know, you hit the ground running.”
“Daredevil” season 2 will be released on Netflix on March 18.
