Daredevil Takes on the World in New Netflix Motion Poster
Earlier today, Netflix announced that their popular streaming service is now available in every country in the world, launching simultaneously in over 130 countries. To celebrate this monumental announcement, the official Twitter feed for Marvel's Daredevil released a new motion poster in anticipation of Season 2, launching later this year. The motion poster features Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, a.k.a. The Man Without Fear, who is seen looking down upon the streets of Hell's Kitchen in his new costume. And it assures Marvel fans across the globe that they can watch all of Season 1, streaming right now!
One of the new characters who will be introduced in Daredevil Season 2 is Elektra Nachios (Elodie Yung), who will become a new love interest for Matt Murdock. Last month, showrunner Douglas Petrie described Elektra as the "best bad girlfriend" Matt Murdock could have, stating that she represents his "wild side." During a new interview with Empire Magazine, Charlie Cox shed some new light on Matt and Elektra's burgeoning relationship.
"I think every single man has an Elektra in their past. If you imagine that relationship, a very fiery, very lustful, very loving and hating relationship, and then you add to that two people who know serious martial arts, you're going to have an interesting dynamic."
This season will also introduce fans to Punisher (Jon Bernthal), along with returning stars Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, a.k.a. Night Nurse, and Scott Glenn as Stick. We also reported in November that Sonia Braga has signed on to star in Marvel's Luke Cage as Claire Temple's mother, but it isn't known if this character will also surface in Season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil. Netflix still hasn't made an official announcement about when the new season will debut, but a new report surfaced this week, claiming it could go up against a highly-anticipated DC Comics project.
An unconfirmed rumor surfaced this week that claims Marvel's Daredevil Season 2 will debut on Friday, March 25, the same day as Warner Bros./DC's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The release date hasn't been confirmed by either Marvel or Netflix yet, so we'll have to wait and see if this rumor turns out to be true. In the meantime, take a look at the new motion poster for Season 1's arrival around the world while we anxiously await Marvel's Daredevil Season 2.
