'Daredevil' Season 2 Trailer Gives Us Our First Look At Jon Bernthal's Punisher and Élodie Yung's Elektra

With the recent success of Fox's Deadpool giving sudden attention to darker and edgier comic book properties, there was no better time for Marvel to release their trailer for the second season of Daredevil. As many fans know by now, the second season is taking a note from this year's trend of having two superheroes team up against each other (See Batman v. Superman and Civil War), in this case being our titular hero and The Punisher (Jon Bernthal). Not only does this trailer give us our first look a Frank Castle, but also a peak at fan favorite Elektra (Élodie Yung).

Below is the first full trailer for season 2 of Daredevil:
Marvel has made it pretty clear that they aren't afraid to go dark with their Netflix shows, and this trailer reiterates that even more. The success of the show's first season was able to prove to many the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a darker side, and they've made it just as marketable as their family friendly films. While Jessica Jones didn't fare as well as Daredevil did ratings wise, it too was generally well received by viewers and fans alike. The choice to go with Punisher as the next season's villain is certainly and intriguing one, and is a decision that definitely keep people interested in the next season (If they weren't already).
The inclusion of Frank Castle will give the character a great introduction to the MCU, without giving him his own solo series or film just yet. Judging by the trailer, it seems that the dynamic between Castle and Murdock will be a major point of emphasis. Rather than going with a clear cut villain such as last season's Kingpin; or a character like Bullseye from the comics, Punisher sees himself as doing good and seeking vengeance for his dead family. Yung's Elektra will also most likely serve as a similar figure to Matt, as someone whose methods he won't exactly be seeing eye to eye with.
There's still a lot in the air about what could happen this season, including what other characters may be showing up that we don't know about yet (Fingers crossed for Bullseye), or how the show will connect to eventual Defenders team up. There's always the possibility of MCU characters showing up including Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, or even fellow New Yorker Spider-Man (Now played by Tom Holland). The showrunners are probably keeping much more surprises in store for fans that we won't be seeing until the show hits March 18th.
