It’s safe to say Daredevil was one of the best loved shows of 2015. Adored by fans and critics alike, the Netflix produced show proved that the blind superhero wasn’t done and dusted after the disastrous 2003 film starring Ben Affleck. Netflix produced a show that could be enjoyed by comic fans and newcomers to the character alike, attracting a lot of attention to the hero. I would go as far to say that the series is in the top 3 live action Marvel adaptations, along with Iron Man and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The series, starring Charlie Cox as the duel characters Matt Murdock and Daredevil, borrowed heavily from one of the best loved graphic novels, Frank Miller’s The Man Without Fear. The acting was top notch, the action choreography was stunning to watch, and the story kept us all glued to our screens throughout its 13 episodes.
To no one’s surprise, after the huge success of the series’ first season, Netflix soon commissioned the second season of the show. Here we take a look at some of the most exciting prospects to look forward to in the upcoming series.
6. Exploring Daredevil
Season 1 dealt with Matt coming to terms with becoming a hero, running around in a black costume as seen in Man Without Fear, before finally suiting up in the famous red costume for the finale of the season. By Season 2, Daredevil has made an appearance to the world. It will be interesting to see where they will take the character in the upcoming season.
According to reports, the introduction of Frank Castle and Elektra will make Matt question his path as the hero of Hell’s Kitchen, causing conflict for the blind vigilante.
5. More Stick
Stick, the mysterious blind man who trained Matt, is set to make a return. Little is known of the character in the first series, although it looks as though he has ties with Iron Fist, a character to be introduced later. Stick (Scott Glenn) was a highlight from the first season; it will be great to see the mysterious assassin return. What will he bring to the new season? And is he still annoyed with Matt after the events that took place in the first season?
4. Enter Kingpin
Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) was one of best parts of season 1. The villain went beyond what we’ve seen previously and became a multi-layered character, with emotion and a great back story. Will Fisk have a role in season 2? It would be safe to assume that despite being in prison, the antagonist will still play a huge part in Murdoch’s life. Will Fisk become the fully fledged Kingpin of Hell’s Kitchen, and will he exact revenge on Murdoch, for getting in his way?
