There’s no question that Netflix has been the purveyor of many a game-changing television experience, particularly regarding Marvel series, Daredevil. This show is one of the streaming site’s most crowning achievements having taken the concept from comics to cinema in a fitting format that hasn’t always been easy to package, but always delivers the crux of the spectacle in spades, which is the fights.
Chris Brewster: Oh man! My wife and I have been given the most amazing gift in the world. Our daughter, Cayden, is absolutely amazing. Talk about a life-changer! She was born right in the middle of shooting The Defenders. She was actually due the week that we filmed the huge episode-three action sequence, but decided to wait until the first day of the Holiday break. I was able to spend the first 3 or 4 weeks with Isabelle and Cayden. It was perfect! I could literally write a book on how amazing parenthood has been for us. We are so happy.
The second season of Netflix’s popular and successful Marvel property, Daredevil is already underway with huge promise. Charlie Cox is back in the title role and donning the red uniform with the intent on delivering his own brand of unmitigated justice to New York City’s criminal dark underbelly, and it won’t be long before our blind Hell’s Kitchen lawyer-by-day finds himself going toe-to-toe with actor Jon Berenthal in the series debut of Frank Castle – a.k.a. The Punisher.
However, don’t rest on what you think you already know, because things are about to get a little more crowded in this corner of the Big Apple with the emergence of another new face of anti-heroic justice. Check out the new graphic below:
Like the hardware? Thought so. And yes, word has it at G.I. Joe: Retaliation co-star Elodie Yung will be displaying her screenfighting prowess in the role sai-wielding vigilante, female ninja Elektra, based on the Marvel character created by Frank Miller in 1981. Yung ultimately carries the torch from actress Jennifer Garner who brought the character to life in Mark Steven Johnson’s adaptation of Daredevil in 2003 starring next to Ben Affleck prior to the anti-heroine getting her own standalone movie a few years later with Bob Sapp, Terence Stamp and Will Yun Lee starring.
Daredevil premieres its second season on Netflix in 2016 following its announcement back in April. Stay tuned for more info!
Bernthal will portray The Punisher, one of Marvel’s most popular characters. He is a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results.

I admit, Marvel’s Daredevil is a show that I definitely have to catch up on, especially with A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist on the way.

Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that “Marvel’s Daredevil” will receive a second season, available only on the streaming service in 2016!
With the first season of “Marvel’s Daredevil” proving a smash success with both audiences and critics, Netflix and Marvel will continue to create further adventures of the Man Without Fear! Doug Petrie (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “American Horror Story”) and Marco Ramirez (“Sons of Anarchy”), who worked closely with Executive Producers Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard during the first season, will serve as showrunners for Season 2. Petrie, Ramirez, Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods”), and Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) will serve as Executive Producers of Season 2.
“While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season,” DeKnight explains, “I could not be happier that Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are carrying the torch. They were invaluable collaborators during our first season, and I for one can’t wait to see what they do with the show moving forward.”
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
“Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” comes only to Netflix later this year and “Marvel’s Luke Cage” premieres on the streaming service in 2016. Future series exclusively debuting on Netflix include “Marvel’s Iron Fist” and “Marvel’s Defenders,” a mini-series event that reimagines a team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. “Marvel’s Daredevil” stars Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Scott Glenn, Bob Gunton, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis Hall, Ayelet Zurer.
