Did you love Netflix’s original series about Marvel’s blind badass as much as we did? Well then we have some good news. The trailer for the upcoming second season just dropped, and you can watch it above.
Have you clicked the video yet? It’s okay, we’ll wait.
Done? Good. Now you see that it’s really more of a teaser. We have artistic renditions of moments from season 1 painted on a church’s walls and ceilings a la the Sistine Chapel as “holy music” plays softly in the background. The characters share their thoughts of how dark the city is and how “Hell’s Kitchen needs to die before it’s reborn.” To sum things up, things are not all fine and dandy after season 1. But being a superhero/vigilante, nothing ever really is.
We hear Matt Murdock speaking with a priest towards the end, wondering why he still feels guilty after all he’s done. The priest surprises him by saying, “Guilt can be a good thing. It’s the soul’s call to action, the indication that your work is not yet finished.” And then SUPER COOL EXPLODING GLASS WHAAAA!!!! PSHEW! PSHEW!
Like most teasers, we get a whole lot of nothing, plot-wise. From what we’ve read, Punisher and Elektra are supposed to make an appearance. Showrunner Marco Ramirez commented that after the fan reaction in season 1, the show plans to stay dark and gritty, but also offer more flashbacks for deeper character insight. Despite the lack of information, the trailer is still a reminder of how cool the series is, and yes, we should be excited.
Daredevil season 2 arrives on Netflix for all your binge-watching pleasure on March 18.
