After a relatively subtle EW reference placed Daredevil's second season as arriving sometime in March, we now have official confirmation from Netflix. At the very end of the latest teaser for the properly hyped Marvel series, the release date is revealed to be March 18. As noted by CBR, the original rumor was that Daredevil's entire second season would drop on March 25 to directly compete with Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That is sadly not the case.
During the final days of 2015, potential viewers were gifted with their first proper look at former The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle. Castle, of course, is perhaps best known by his catchy nickname The Punisher. A previous teaser hinted at the shape of Punisher to come, though many are still admirably battling with whether Bernthal said "beg" or "bang" during that clip's final moments.
In addition to a fresh teaser and poster, Netflix also released an official synopsis on Thursday that's just short enough to be frustrating but not quite lengthy enough to give it all away:
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.
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.
Congrats on going global, Netflix.
