The reviews are in, Marvel and Netflix‘s Daredevil is a bona-fide hit. It didn’t take long for Netflix to confirm an order for the second season. That means it’s time to move to the next step in the Internet Hit Show Second Season Check List: SPECULATION. What’s going to happen in the second season, what exciting new characters will show up? Daredevil’s own Charlie Cox has a few ideas!
Thanks to the Empire Podcast, we won’t have to guess which characters Charlie Cox would like to see… I mean get a look at… dammit, I mean appear on the second season.
I have to be careful because we just got commissioned so I have no idea who is going to turn up. Based on the show we’ve created, which is very grounded in reality, I’d like to see Punisher maybe show up, a little bit of Elektra maybe. I wouldn’t mind Black Widow making an appearance, and you can’t think about Daredevil for too long without thinking of Bullseye. I don’t know when or if or how that would happen, but it’d be cool if it did.
Those are most likely on everyone’s top five list, so it’s not that far a stretch to see one or even all of them making some kind of appearance in season two, either a mention like Electra got when the show looked back at Matt and Foggy’s college years, or a full-blown deep in the plot line appearance we’re all hoping for.
Cox goes on to talk about the schedule:
We’ll begin shooting in the second half of the year. It’ll be the same timeline as the last show, so season two will come out about this time next year. Again, I’m imagining all this, but they’ll probably do Iron Fist or Luke Cage at the same time, followed by the other one [of the two] in the first half of 2016 and then maybe Defenders in the second half of 2016 or the beginning of 2017.
Before that hits Netflix for another binge watching weekend in 2017, we’ll get a look at A.K.A. Jessica Jones which will introduce more characters to the Marvel Television & Cinematic Universe.
That’s Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and The Purple Man (David Tennant) above. Things between those two should be fairly dramatic. Luke Cage (Mike Colter) will also be making his first appearance.
So there’s a possibility that any of these A.K.A. Jessica Jones characters could also cross over in season two of Daredevil. Cox leaves us with one more comment that sums up where he is when it comes to working on season two.
What’s exciting is to have a season where [Matt Murdock] is really embodying his alter-ego before we get to the Defenders.
From where the first season ended I am guessing we’ll get deeper into the Yakuza/Hand storyline. I am hoping we see some of Wilson Fisk in prison, I’d love to see him take over and essentially running the prison after taking out all the other big prison players and cowering, or simply buying the guards and warden. That way is we ever get to see the Brubaker Daredevil in prison storyline in the series, we’ll have that to juxtaposition against.
What storyline and characters are you hoping to see come season two?
