Can vigilante justice be purely a positive? Or, in more direct terminology, will a superhero who flies solo be the good cause of a dangerous effect? We’ve been pondering such questions since “The Dark Knight” blew open the idea of what a comic book movie could be, and similar questions seem to be popping up in the first trailer for the second season of “Marvel’s Daredevil.”
Focusing on Jon Bernthal as The Punisher, the above trailer — billed as Part 1 of two — offers the idea that because Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox) donned a leather leotard and kicked crime’s ass a year ago, it’s his fault a new, more violent, more lethal version of the rogue vigilante has hit the streets. Packed with hard-hitting punches and flying bullets, the spot certainly isn’t shy about providing examples of the trouble coming this season. Could Season 2 of “Daredevil” be “The Dark Knight” to Season 1’s “Batman Begins”?
“Marvel’s Daredevil” Season 2 premieres all 13 episodes March 18. Look for the second trailer on Indiewire February 25.
