The Punisher Opens Fire in Daredevil Season 2 Teaser
While we still have a few months until Marvel kicks off Phase Three of its movie universe with Captain America: Civil War, fans just have a few days before another Marvel hero returns on the small screen. Season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil is set to debut on Friday, March 18, which will introduce Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher into Hell's Kitchen. Earlier today, Jon Bernthal took to his Instagram and Twitter accounts to share new behind-the-scenes videos and photos of The Punisher in action.
Both the video and photo show Frank Castle standing on a rooftop, firing a large rifle at an unknown enemy. Of course, we don't know who he's shooting at, or when this scene takes place within the 13-episode season, but it's clear that The Punisher will surely be a force to be reckoned with in Daredvil Season 2. The Punisher won't be the only new character introduced this season, with Elodie Yung also coming aboard to portray Matt Murdock's (Charlie Cox) new love interest, Elektra Nachios.
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell's Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame - Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung). Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt's neighborhood.
Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero. Rosario Dawson is also returning as Claire Temple, along with Scott Glenn as Stick. There have been rumors that the iconic comic book villain Bullseye may show up this season, but that has never been confirmed. These new episodes come on the heels of a successful first season of Netflix's second Marvel TV series, Jessica Jones, which has since been picked up for a second season. Back in November, a cryptic teaser hinted that Daredevil Season 2 may cross over with the third series, Luke Cage, suggesting that Luke may have taken over Matt's local bar, Josies.
Last week, it was confirmed that Luke Cage will debut on September 30, but we still don't known when Iron Fist will debut. These two characters, along with Daredevil and Jessica Jones, will join forces in the miniseries The Defenders, which is expected to debut sometime in 2017. Check out this new video and photo featuring The Punisher, as we inch closer and closer to the March 18 premiere of Daredevil Season 2.
