******UPDATE OF THE UPDATE: Found a Tweet with the video that still works, watch it fast!
***UPDATE: Alas, it’s gone. Apparently some press “Publish” a little early on that one. Still, the leaked version can be found below.
If you’re a Marvel fan, and you’re looking forward to the next phase of Netflix’s five series plan, Jessica Jones, hold on there for a minute because Daredevil is here to say, have you missed me yet. The first season of the series about the Man Without Fear launched in April and was an immediate hit with fans and critics thanks to its darker tone, bone-crunching action, and spot-on casting. So how about that second season? Well, those attending New York Comic-Con got a taste of Daredevil season 2, and now you can too, but just a taste. The official trailer is now posted online for your approval.
Okay, so first of all about three-quaters of it is recap/sizzle reel for season one of Daredevil, but if you, like many, binged the whole thing in one or two sittings back in April it’s a nice reminder of how awesome it was (complete with pull quotes from critics arguing the point). The juicy stuff starts at the minute-thirty mark, when we get glances of Matt (Charlie Cox), Foggy (Elden Henson) and Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) at what looks like a funeral, Elektra (Elodie Yung) putting on something red, and what appears to be Frank “The Punisher” Castle (Jon Bernthal) showing us his back.
Let’s roll the clip.

Obviously, it doesn’t tell us much about what’s about to go down with the show, but you’ll recall that the appearance of Elektra will mean more emphasis on the evil ninja storyline that was introduced along with Stick (Scott Glenn), and it’s been previously mentioned that Punisher will be the season’s villain. Remember kids, viciously beating bad guys to bloody pulps is okay, murdering them in cold blood is bad. Lesson of the day.
Daredevil will be back in April 2016 on Netflix.
