The first season of Daredevil blew up Netflix, and a lot of fans loved what they saw. I thought it was one of the best things that Marvel has produced, and I am so happy that season two has been given the greenlight!
Daredevil star Charlie Cox was recently a guest on the Empire Podcast, and he talked a little bit about season two, teasing things that he would like to see happen:
“I have to be careful because we just got commissioned so I have no idea who is going to turn up. Based on the show we’ve created, which is very grounded in reality, I’d like to see Punisher maybe show up, a little bit of Elektra maybe. I wouldn’t mind Black Widow making an appearance, and you can’t think about Daredevil for too long without thinking of Bullseye. I don’t know when or if or how that would happen, but it’d be cool if it did."
It would be amazing to see any of those characters show up in Daredevil. Punisher, Electra, Black Widow, and Bullseye? Why the hell not?! Since the series is set in the Marvel universe anything can happen, and the creators have a lot of stuff to play with. Cox went on to talk about when they will start shooting and gave his thoughts on what the release timeline will be.
“We’ll begin shooting in the second half of the year. It’ll be the same timeline as the last show, so season two will come out about this time next year. Again, I’m imagining all this, but there’ll probably do Iron Fist or Luke Cage at the same time, followed by the other one [of the two] in the first half of 2016 and then maybe Defenders in the second half of 2016 or the beginning of 2017.”
The actor also explained that it’s exciting to have a season where Matt Murdock is going to get to embody his alter-ego before they get to The Defenders. Marvel and Netflix are currently shooting A.K.A. Jessica Jones, which stars Krysten Ritter and David Tennant. Cox is looking forward to getting back into the red suit and kicking some ass.
