Hello all! As many of you probably noticed already, some scenes from the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix were released to a wider audience last week, after being shown to the people at the NYCC Daredevil panel. The teaser was originally released at the end of promotional footage from season one, but if you want to see only the new scenes, have a look below!
For some pretty good screen caps from the trailer, I suggest you check out this short piece from io9. I must admit that when I first saw the footage of Elektra, my brain immediately screamed Claire instead. I have no idea why since I was obviously well aware that Elektra appears in season two, in the shape of the ninjaesque (she can fight!) Elodie Yung, and she really doesn’t even look that much like Rosario Dawson. In my defense, her face is mostly covered. That, or I’m basically an idiot. 😉
I also suggest you check out another couple of videos out of NYCC. First, it’s the Daredevil panel from the convention itself. Second, we have a cast interview from Entertainment Weekly. During the eons that have passed since my last post, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that most of you have seen these already. If not, they’re worth a look.
Any thoughts and speculations on season 2? Let the rest of us know in the comment section! I’m actually pretty excited about this, even though I feel some ambivalence about Scott Glenn coming back for three episodes next season. I have nothing against Scott Glenn – on the contrary, I thought he was a perfect casting choice – I just prefer that this show stay as clear as possible of the more mystical realms of the Marvel U. On the other hand, we have Frank Castle to anchor us firmly to the semi-realistic, street-level side of things.
