The first season of Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil managed to do nearly everything perfectly. It showed us Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) origins in a unique and fresh way that kept it from feeling tired or formulaic, presented one of the best onscreen comic book villains ever in Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, and found a way to be faithful to its source material, while creating an engaging, and unpredictable first season of television. I honestly couldn’t have imagined it being any other way.
Not much is known about next year’s sophomore season right now either, and with showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez taking over for Steven S. DeKnight - Daredevil could go in a number of different directions moving forward. If one thing is for sure at this point though, it looks like Hell’s Kitchen is about to get a bit more crowded with the introduction of Frank Castle/The Punisher (Jon Bernthal), Elektra (Elodie Yung), and more.
In anticipation of the show’s panel at this year’s New York Comic-Con too, Marvel Chief Creative Officer, Joe Quesada released the following concept art poster for Daredevil season 2 that will be available to anyone attending the convention. Check it out below:
To me, this poster represents just why Daredevil is the perfect example of what a comic book show should be like. Granted, I may be reading too far into this, but the poster is both an excellent homage to the past Daredevil comic book artwork, while Charlie Cox’s iteration of the character is the one drawn. For me, it’s the perfect representation of how Daredevil manages to respect and honor the comic book source material it’s based off of, while also being able to tell its own story.
Going into this year’s New York Comic-Con too, it looks like fans are finally going to get to hear some new, concrete information about next year’s season. Considering that Marvel used last year’s NYCC to reveal the first images from the series as well as the full cast and characters, it’s possible that they’ll use NYCC in a similar fashion this time too. Whether we get our first image of Jon Bernthal in The Punisher costume, or Elodie Yung as Elektra, I’m interested in seeing not only how the studio is planning on promoting Daredevil at the convention, but all of the other Netflix Defenders shows as well, including Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.
Season 2 of Daredevil is set to premiere on Netflix in 2016.
