The full trailer for season two of Daredevil arrived this morning, and the heavy focus is on the the season’s new nemesis, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle, otherwise known as The Punisher. What’s interesting about The Punisher is that he’s something of a dark, anti-hero, a vigilante in his own right who resorts to more violent means to push his agenda through.
In other words, The Punisher is the Boyd Crowder to Matt Murdock’s Raylan Givens, and as Frank Castle says near the end of the trailer, “You’re one bad day away from being me.” Did these two grow up in the coal mines together, too?
In any respect, it makes for a very intriguing “villain” that we can root for, and a second season that’s poised to build upon and perhaps even improve an already stellar freshman season.
Check out the trailer.
