Thoughts on Daredevil Season 2

Daredevil S2With the Marvel Cinematic Universe expanding beyond the silver screen into the small screen, several characters have made their debut. One of these characters is Matt Murdock, a.k.a Daredevil. He is the star of his own show which had a fantastic first season. Now, Daredevil is on his way to having a second season. From what the trailers have shown, it appears that more characters like The Punisher  and Elektra will be joining the universe.

After watching the whole first season of Daredevil, I was excited to hear that a second season was in the works. But after watching the first trailer, some concerns popped in my head. One of the concerns I had was that the show could struggle with trying to develop two characters simultaneously: Elektra and Punisher. The reason for this is because I believe the show is rushing these two characters in, and therefore, could struggle trying to balance their appearances with the already established cast. Although it might be interesting to see Daredevil’s viewpoint on the apparent registration of superheroes. I am also concerned how this season will tie in with the upcoming movie, Captain America Civil War. The reason for this is with the established superhero community already on the verge of splitting in two. It could be confusing  on when the season takes place in unison with the events in Civil War. Also, it might present continuity issues that could go against with what is happening on the big screen. Despite my concerns, the second season of Daredevil is looking to surpass the first season, and I’m personally looking forward to it.
