Daredevil Is Chained Up by Punisher in New Season 2 Promo and Poster
We finally saw Jon Bernthal's Punisher in action in the awesome first trailer for Daredevil season 2, and now we have a brief new promo and poster that show Daredevil in a precarious position after his adversary's arrival:

In the promo, Daredevil struggles in chains while the city around him is seemingly in danger. It's unclear whether the promo is actual footage from the show or a motion poster, but either way, it's safe to say that Punisher is responsible for his predicament, judging from the telltale shotgun sounds in the background.

This season will see the arrival of Bernthal's Frank Castle, a vigilante who, like Daredevil, wants to clean up Hell's Kitchen, but unlike Daredevil, believes that dishing out the death penalty is the answer. The showrunners previously described this season as "Daredevil vs Punisher," and the early footage and buzz indicates that Matt will struggle with the notion that Punisher is cleaning up the streets in a more permanent (albeit more controversial) way.

Season two will also feature Elodie Yung as Elektra, a classic comics character and Matt's old college girlfriend who has been described as a "sociopath." The character hasn't been seen onscreen since her eponymous and much-derided 2005 movie starring Jennifer Garner, so hopefully this version will do the character justice.

Daredevil season two starts streaming on Netflix on March 18.
