Not many days remain before Netflix launches all of the episodes of Marvelâ€™s Daredevil Season 2 â€“ to be exact, it’s just nine more days! Yesterday, we spotted billboard posters that offered us The Man Without Fear,Â along with The Punisher and Elektra, all in new costumes. And today, the official Facebook page of the Netflix series released a new poster that features a new look – in fact, our first official look, at the three suited up in new costumes.
Just like the billboard poster, we see Jon Bernthalâ€™s Frank CastleÂ with the iconic skull symbol that his comic book counterpart bears. We have seen Charlie Coxâ€™s character in the upgraded Daredevil Season 2 costume before, but we didnâ€™t have the back view at it. This poster offers us that. And Elodie Yungâ€™s Elektra has more red in her new outfit compared to the previous one. Sheâ€™s got the lower half of her face covered with a scarf here. I disagree with Frank Miller – this is no one else but Elektra! Check out the poster below!
And thereâ€™s a new Daredevil Season 2 promo featuring the three big superheroes or anti-heroes (whatever you wish to call them) getting suited up! â€œSome fight the darkness, others become itâ€ â€“ check it out below!
Daredevil Season 2 showrunner talks the essence of The Punisher!
With Steven S. DeKnight as the showrunner, the first season of Marvelâ€™s Daredevil managed to impress almost everyone. However, the showrunner for the series has changed â€“ Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez haven taken over for Daredevil Season 2. And they’ve faced, perhaps, bigger challenges than DeKnight had to face. They have shouldered the responsibility of introducing two big Marvel Comics characters: Elektra and The Punisher.
Introducing The Punisher must have been a big challenge for Petrie and Ramirez, because the character has so many standalone movies under his belt, but hardly any of those overwhelmed the majority. So, how is The Punisher of Daredevil Season 2 truer to the comics compared to the previous ones?
Hereâ€™s how Marco Ramirez responded to such a question put forward by Comic Book:
What we want is the essence of The Punisher to be on screen, the same way that the essence of Daredevil is on the screen, even though Daredevil wasn’t in his traditional costume for twelve episodes last season, but the spirit of who he is and who Matt Murdock is, that’s the entire show. Even though it’s not the one you would have assumed on a t-shirt.
Well, we’re looking forward to watching Jon Bernthalâ€™s version of The Punisher in Daredevil Season 2. Arenâ€™t you?
