Marvel and Netflix have just released the first full trailer for Daredevil’s second season! And it is fantastic!
Ok, so, we’re getting to know the Punisher, of course. He’s obviously not very stable, and haunted by how his family was stolen from him by people who do not play by nice rules like, “Let people live.”
He’s very well armed. That’s a lot of guns in his trunk.
Matt is feeling guilty for whatever reason. His priest tells him the guilt means his work isn’t finished, which, of course not. It never will be.
The Punisher is making his presence known and felt, and inspiring a lot of fear. At first, the cops only know that someone with a lot of firepower is tracking gangsters to their lairs and annihilating them. Now it’s Matt’s turn to have a mysterious new player he only hears about at first to deal with, like he did to the gangs last year.
Between the various gangs, the law, and a vigilante, there is a certain balance. But when a well-armed, lethal psychopath comes crashing in, taking gangs out, creating power vacuums, and endangering the innocent people Matt has sworn to protect, that balance is going straight out the window, at high velocity.
…is the Punisher hearing things that aren’t there? I keep hearing that child singing a tune whenever he shows up. Is that in his head?
Karen is wondering about the Punisher, what created him. She’s thinking they all did, Matt is thinking they have nothing in common.
Karen sort of has a point, that Daredevil could have paved the way for Punisher, but I don’t really buy that. Killers like the Punisher don’t need ways paved for them, he’s just breaking things because he’s been broken.
Oooh! Matt and Karen in the rain! I seem to recall, in the comics, she’s quite the long-running love interest for him.
Matt knows about innocent people being caught in the crossfire, but he, at least, has never hurt someone innocent. Punisher likely has no such restraint.
Matt’s feeling the pressure as blood is shed, and Foggy accuses him of spilling blood too. Yes and no. Matt’s never simply killed people, certainly not with such cold and raging intent as the Punisher. That’s Matt’s line: no killing.
Claire’s back! Yay! …I suspect she’ll be stitching up our hero a few more times.
Lots of action, yes, good.
Punisher is out for revenge, of course.
Matt’s trying to stop his rampage, keep him from killing.
Punisher is having none of that!
This is the collision of ideologies, where one side pushes for mercy while the other wants results. And the question is, how much good has Matt actually done? How much has he changed? How is the city any better off now than when it was at the start of his war?
The Punisher is at severe odds with Matt, and apparently has him at his mercy at least once, because “Daredevil” is “a half-measure.” There’s no easy reply to that, I think, which is what we’re going to see Matt wrestle with this season.
I wonder if the Punisher is going to target Matt’s friends, to give him “one bad day” and convert him to committing murder.
Either way, this is Matt’s darkness given form and flesh.
And Matt has a visitor in his apartment: Elektra!
Oooh, I am so excited about Elektra! 🙂 And I love how, last year, we had a trailer for Matt and one for Fisk, and this year (in about ten days) we’ll have one for Punisher and one for Elektra! Cool! 🙂
You know what I’ll be doing the weekend this comes out! 😀
