Marvel has confirmed that Daredevil 2 will be released on Netflix on Friday 18th March – and also released a new poster and trailer for the series.
Rumours earlier this month suggested that the show would premiere on Friday 25th March, placing Marvel’s latest Netflix original series head-to-head with DC’s latest movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Marvel, though, appears to have blinked first in the game of chicken, instead opting to get ahead of its comic book rival by a week.
The show returns after the hugely successful first season, released in April 2015, which follows blind lawyer Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), who was imbued with extraordinary senses as a young boy and fights injustice by night as a vigilante in Hell’s Kitchen, New York.
But Murdock is not the only hero on the block. The two most exciting additions to the cast in Season 2 are The Walking Dead’s Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, another vigilante with his own, violent methods of confronting injustice, and Yung’s Elektra, a mysterious figure from Daredevil’s past. Returning cast members include Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple) and Scott Glenn (Stick).
The second season debuts hot on the heels of the release of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, which expanded the Hell’s Kitchen world and kept the bar high for Netflix and Marvel’s growing slate – their run will continue with the upcoming Luke Cage and future release of Iron Fist series, all leading up to the crossover show, Marvel’s The Defenders.
The announcement of an official air date follows the release of a bunch of new images from Daredevil Season 2, including a look at Elektra and The Punisher. It also arrives as Marvel releases a new poster for the second run:
And here’s the new trailer announcing the release date too:
