As promised by Netflix, the second trailer for Marvel’s Daredevil has been released online, and while the original teaser that debuted last week mostly focused on Frank Castle/The Punisher (Jon Bernthal), this trailer is all about the deadly Greek assassin and Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) former lover, Elektra Natchios (Elodie Young). Picking up immediately where the first trailer for the second season left off, Elektra has come to warn Matt that his efforts in expelling the Yakuza from the streets of New York City may not have been as successful as he once thought, and that the criminal organization has now returned to fill the power vacuum left behind by Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio).
Anyone with a passing knowledge of Daredevil will know that Ole’ Horn Head’s relationship with Elektra is one of the most complicated and down-right twisted love stories in all of comics, and based on this trailer alone, it seems pretty clear that the two will have a fairly adversarial relationship throughout the season. Though it’s too early to render a definitive opinion on Young’s performance as Elektra, the actress looks to have done a great job of capturing the sai-wielding assassin’s seductive and manipulative personality.
Along with the more thorough reveal of Young’s Elektra, we also get a look at the new Daredevil suit (now featuring even creepier red eyes), Matt’s deteriorating relationship with fellow “avocado-at-law,” Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), and the official introduction of the crime syndicate known as The Hand, an order of evil mystical ninjas hell-bent on taking over the world by any means necessary. Judging by the rather large number of ninjas featured throughout the trailer, a gun-crazed vigilante might be the least of Daredevil’s problems for this season.
Season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil will premiere on Netflix on March 18, 2016.
