Daredevil season two looks awesome
When we last left Matt Murdoch he had just finished his long quest to put Wilson Fisk – the kingpin of Hell’s Kitchen – behind bars. But now, Daredevil is back with an even bigger problem. Ninjas.
Judging by the new trailer for season two of Marvel and Netflix’s original blockbuster series, Daredevil, trouble never ceases for the the charismatic lawyer-by-day-and-brooding-vigilante-by-night.
Having chased out the Kingpin and Chinese mob from his beloved Hell’s Kitchen, a gulf of opportunity has opened up for the opportunistic Japanese Yakuza. Cue clips of our visually-burdened superhero having seven-shades beating out of him by ninjas. Lots and lots of ninjas – some even riding motorbikes.
Although, what we can gather from the latest trailer is that this time, Daredevil is not alone. Joining his faithful day-time companions at his legal practice, Foggy and Karen Page (as well as Rosario Dawson), are two characters that comic book fans will be familiar with. Following on from the previous trailer where they introduced The Punisher, the new one teases us with the appearance of Murdoch’s old flame Electra – thankfully, this time not played by Jennifer Garner, but instead by the rather lovely French-Cambodian actress Élodie Yung.
We cannot wait.
