Daredevil Season 2 Teaser Reveals Possible Luke Cage Involvement
A new teaser for Daredevil season two premiered today on the official Daredevil Twitter account, and while it doesn't feature any new footage, it does tease the appearance of another hero to Matt Murdock's world.

The brief video shows the flickering neon sign of Josie's Bar, a favorite hangout of Murdock and Foggy from season one. The screen then goes dark where text reads, "Welcome to Hell's Kitchen. Pick your poison." We then see a different neon sign turn on, one for Luke's, which we're guessing is the bar owned by Luke Cage and not Luke's Diner from Gilmore Girls (hey, you never know). And that's it.

The message here seems to be that Luke Cage will play a part in Daredevil's upcoming season. That's not terribly surprising considering that he's going to featured in Jessica Jones, which also takes place in Hell's Kitchen. Cage's solo series is going to take place a few blocks uptown in Harlem, but it seems like his bar may be located in the westside neighborhood that Murdock calls home.

So besides the obvious reference to Cage, the text of "pick your poison" almost seems to suggest that Daredevil and the man with the bulletproof skin are going to be at odds in the new season. Maybe we're reading too much into it and they literally mean "choose which place you want to get sloshed at", but we don't think so. It makes some sense for Marvel's TV heroes to kind of be at odds with one another before joining up for The Defenders, and a hostile Daredevil/Luke Cage relationship could be a good way to start that process.

Check out the teaser for yourself below, and see if you come to a different conclusion.
