You were hoping against hope that a second season of “Daredevil” would happen on Netflix once you made your way through it and as you already know, this was green lit very shortly after the buzz had reached a fever pitch. Did you see the series? Did you binge watch it? I admit that while I watched I did not binge because there was nothing else coming up immediately for me to enjoy that plays along these lines so I made my viewing last a few weeks. I think I did an episode every three or four days. Its a fun way to watch but you do need to avoid discussions with those who binged. That being said, I am happy to share that the second season of “Daredevil” is online right now if you have a subscription to Netflix or are using the account of a friend who watched it on your TV and forgot to log out when you were done. Believe me it happens. Check out the new poster, premise and some cast. I will return to close it all out.

The Premise:
The second season of the American web television series Daredevil, which is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, follows Matt Murdock / Daredevil, a blind lawyer-by-day who fights crime at night, crossing paths with the deadly Frank Castle / Punisher and seeing the return of an old girlfriend–Elektra Natchios. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films and other television series of the franchise. The season is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios and Goddard Textiles, with Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez serving as showrunners, and series creator Drew Goddard acting as consultant. (from the shows Wiki).

Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil
Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page
Elden Henson as Franklin “Foggy” Nelson
Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle / Punisher
Élodie Yung as Elektra Natchios

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow can you believe that we saw Spider-Man at the very end of that new trailer for “Captain America: Civil War”!!! Oh wait, wrong MCU property but please don’t be mad at me because I am still absolutely ecstatic about seeing Spidey at the close of that latest trailer. If you didn’t see that yet I am sorry for spoiling the surprise for you but you should click HERE to see our post about the trailer. So, Daredevil Season Two is here and I have been looking forward to this as well for a few months. At first I was hesitant as to how these Netflix offerings were going to be but the first season rocked and then “Jessica Jones” was so many levels of “HOLY MACKEREL what am I seeing here” that made me an instant fan. As you know the second season will bring us both The Punisher and Elektra and one has to wonder will Bullseye be far behind in the mix. I look forward to a few references to the other Marvel Cinematic Universe properties during this season and perhaps even some lead ins to Doctor Strange if such things are possible. The one thing these series are missing out on is the final teasing scene. We had nothing in the first season nor in “Jessica Jones” but that final episode should have something that comes up about a minute into credits. It keeps a standard going and we nerds love it. I think with this season that I might be binging if I have not admitted to it during one of the other posts about the show. That’s based on the “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” opening up the following week and I want to go into that film nice and clean. So what do you readers think about this new season? Some Daredevil and Chill is def in order don’t you think? Let me know in the comments but do keep the spoilers to a minimum if you should binge the show.

The show’s official Wiki entry will share lots more details about it with you but I strongly suggest that you don’t do this if you are concerned about any plot spoilers. Wiki WILL post the full details about each episode very quickly and since its reviewers will need to binge watch it to populate the page, you don’t have much time to avoid them. I suggest watching it yourself and then going back to read more about stuff.
