“Marvel’s Daredevil” has finally revealed some Season 2 footage. After posting a few tantalizing teasers, Netflix released a full-length trailer for new episodes of the critically acclaimed superhero drama Monday. The promo video makes it clear that Season 2 will focus on Matt Murdoch’s (Charlie Cox) new adversary, the Punisher (Jon Bernthal). However, there may have been a few details that fans missed.
1. The Punisher’s House – If you didn’t notice the mailbox out front or don’t know the Punisher’s real name, which is Frank Castle, you might not realize that the house in the beginning of the trailer is the Punisher’s. There is even a photo of him with his daughter. Those unfamiliar with the anti-hero’s mythology will learn that his family is a big part of his motivation.
2. Matt’s Romantic Moment – It’s easy to overlook with all the intense action sequences, but Matt and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) seem to be getting closer. Around the 1:23 mark, Matt is seen touching her face in a way that doesn’t really seem like a professional boss/secretary relationship. As previously reported, they might be getting more romantic this season.
3. Elektra’s Breaking and Entering – Her arrival is pretty hard to miss, but viewers might not realize right away that Elektra (Elodie Yung) is in Matt’s apartment. The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen is clearly surprised to see her, so it seems like she broke into her ex’s home. Executive Producer Doug Petrie has said that this is the behavior that makes her attractive. “She’s just the best bad girlfriend you can possibly have,” Petrie told Entertainment Weekly in December. “She does everything wrong and attractive, she’s his id, the wild side.”
