Although kind of overshadowed by the relative newness of Jessica Jones, let’s not forget about the show that started this new era of Marvel TV on Netflix: Daredevil. The new year will see a new season of the Man Without Fear on the streaming service, and it will see some well-known faces from Marvel Comics join the show as Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) quests to clean-up post-alien attack Hell’s Kitchen, which has become a wretched hive of scum and villainy. Now, with three days left till 2016, we’re bring given a good long look at Frank “The Punisher” Castle (Jon Bernthal), and Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung) in the new season of Daredevil.
Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, who yesterday unveiled the cover for their look ahead issue with the first photo of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, comes these new Daredevil images.
The one with Elektra doesn’t say much, other than Elodie Yung is an attractive woman, but the photo with Bernthal though is very telling. It seems as though the Daredevil showrunners have taken a page, literally, from “Welcome Back, Frank,” the first story from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s celebrated run on The Punisher comic. “Welcome Back, Frank” played a huge part in shaping the plots for both recent Punisher movies, so borrowing this Daredevil scene has basically picked the book clean.
As we’re sure you know, Daredevil season 2 will focus on the main character’s dual quest to clean up Hell’s Kitchen by day as legal activist Matt Murdock, and clean it up by night with his fists as the costumed vigilante Daredevil. Enter into the picture The Punisher, who is going to do his part to clean up the streets… with extreme severity.
Daredevil season 2 will debut on Netflix sometime in the new year, likely around April.
