The second season of Marvelâ€™s Daredevil is set to air all of its episodes in a week and a half, with two popular Marvel Comics anti-heroes â€“ Elektra and The Punisher. Even though most of us are excited about Elodie Yung and Jon Bernthalâ€™s new characters in the series, some are concerned about their costumes. Will the two characters get costumes that resemble their comic book counterparts’?
Well, it seems that they will! A set of billboards has been spotted in downtown Toronto, featuring posters of Daredevil, Elektra, and The Punisher. While we get a new look at Charlie Coxâ€™s The Man Without Fear in his upgraded costume, we get to see for the first time Bernthalâ€™s Frank CastleÂ with the iconic skull on his chest for the first time. And Elektraâ€™s outfit is more red, compared to what weâ€™ve seen untilÂ now. Check out the posters below (via Imgur)!
Matt and Foggyâ€™s friendship is at risk in Daredevil Season 2!
In Daredevil Season 1, we saw Matt Murdock share an exemplary friendship with Elden Hensonâ€™s Foggy Nelson. But it seems that the bond between â€œthe best damn avocadosâ€ is going to be on shaky ground in the upcoming season. Thatâ€™s what we can sense from the two showrunnersâ€™ words. Hereâ€™s what Doug Petrie said in a recent interview with TV Guide:
Foggy loves Matt. Heâ€™s very protective of him, but heâ€™s scared of him, and heâ€™s got to protect himself, ultimatelyâ€¦Itâ€™s like having a friend whoâ€™s in the program. Like, â€œIâ€™ll be with you, but thereâ€™s a point when your behavior is un-endorse-able. And for the good of both our mental health, Iâ€™m getting out of here.”
We can pretty much understandÂ Foggyâ€™s protectiveness towards Matt from the first season, and also from the official trailer for the second season. We heard Matt arguing, â€œBlood is being shed!â€ ThenÂ Foggy’s arguing back, â€œAnd youâ€™ve donated more than your fair share!â€
Marco Ramirez, the other showrunner of Daredevil Season 2, added:
Watching the buddy comedy version of the Matt and Foggy Show might feel lovely, but it’s not something in the writers’ room that we ever really wanted. What we love about those two characters is…how much they love each other, and constantly testing that friendship at every turn, and constantly getting them to a place where it almost feels like is this going to be it for these – for lack of a better term – brothers.
