The first full trailer for Daredevil season 2 is here, and it’s no joke.

After putting an end to Wilson Fisk’s reign of terror in season 1, Daredevil will face a possibly even more terrifying adversary in season 2: The Punisher (aka Frank Castle), played by Jon Bernthal.

Without question, we’re going to see his tragic origin in some form. Whether it’s handled in flashback (like Netflix has done for Matt Murdock and Jessica Jones) remains to be seen, but it’s pretty likely.

The new trailer shows that season two will recapture the dark, gritty setting, and thematic elements (specifically justice and faith) that made the first season so memorable.

Also welcome is Rosario Dawson‘s return as Matt Murdock’s love interest and consummate healer, Claire Temple, to the series, as well as Matt’s partners in crime, Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll).


We also get a sneak peek at Elektra (Elodie Yung) right at the very end. But with a second trailer promised for February 25, we can probably expect to see a lot more of her very soon.

Needless to say, Frank Castle is probably only half of Matt’s problems this season.

All 13 episodes of Daredevil season 2 will hit Netflix on March 18.
