Alright, folks, we’re less than a week away from the full release of Netflix’s Daredevil season 2, which will see the titular, devil-suited hero going up against another man who sees himself as a kind of savior, namely Jon Bernthal‘s unforgiving The Punisher. As we saw in the recent, extended trailer for season 2, in which we get a much clearer sense of how The Punisher comes to Hell’s Kitchen, the relationship between Matthew Murdock, played by Boardwalk Empire breakout Charlie Cox, and The Punisher is one that pivots on the definition of justice, whether criminals deserve to have a chance to explain themselves or not at all. The new poster for the series, which Netflix premiered earlier today, gives a full sense of how Daredevil’s rivalry with The Punisher, as well as Elektra (Elodie Yung) and some low-tier criminals, will keep him bound up, both mentally and physically. We’ll see just how bad this world gets for Murdock and Frank Castle when the Marvel series premieres on Netflix on March 18th.
Take a full look at the new poster for Daredevil right below:
Here’s the official synopsis for Daredevil Season 2:
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the superhero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil) is joined by a stellar cast including Jon Bernthal (Frank Castle/The Punisher), Elodie Yung (Elektra), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), and Scott Glenn (Stick).
Marvel’s Daredevil is Executive Produced by series Co-Showrunners Marco Ramirez (Sons Of Anarchy, Fear The Walking Dead) and Douglas Petrie (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, American Horror Story), along with Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Jessica Jones), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television.
