First off, has everyone seen the second Daredevil trailer? The correct answer is “Of course we have!” Just in case though, it’s embedded below so you can refresh your memory. Just like last time, I’ve also included individual frames from the trailer, and a list of all the lines spoken. So, you should have everything you need to follow along listening to me and Claire from The Defenders Podcast analyze the trailer in minute detail. Enjoy!

The full script from the trailer

Elektra: Would you believe me if I said I’d missed you?
Matt: No.
Elektra: I need your help, Matthew. You’re the only person I can trust.
Matt: Well, sweetheart, you don’t break into my house and then talk to me about trust.

Matt: What do you want from me?
Elektra: You fight better than anyone I know. And I have information. The Yakuza never left.
Matt:That’s impossible. I drove them out of New York City.
Elektra: No, you didn’t. They just hibernated and watched you take out all their enemies. Now, New York is ripe for the taking.
Matt: If we do this, nobody dies. Do you understand?

Elektra: Hungry?


Foggy: Every time I walk up those stairs, I wonder if today is the day you’re dead in your living room.
Matt: There are horrible things happening in this city. […] I’m done apologizing to you for who I am.


Matt: This city needs me.
Claire: This isn’t your city anymore!


Matt: My way isn’t working. What if it never has?

Elektra: The war has begun, Matthew. There is nothing we can do but fight.

Stick: They’re called… The Hand.

Unknown: You cannot stop what we have started. The rising is coming.

Elektra: Have you been working out by the way? […] I appreciate that.

    I found it interesting that Matt seems to take a step back when Elektra approaches him in the first scene. He seems on guard and angry, but trying to be calm. I interpreted his use of the word sweetheart to be a bit condescending.
    I hope, and assume, there will be some interesting flashbacks.

    I haven’t been the biggest fan of Elektra before but this trailer made me really excited for the second season.
