Daredevil Teams Up with Elektra in New Season Two Trailer
The first Daredevil season two trailer (or "part one" of the trailer) was all about Punisher, but now part two is all about Elektra, the deeply dangerous assassin who comes roaring back from Matt Murdock's past:



Although Punisher is arguably the most anticipated aspect of this season, this trailer makes Elektra seem equally intriguing. The first reviews for this season have been extremely positive about both Jon Bernthal and Elodie Yung's performances, describing them as the "definitive versions of their characters" and Yung specifically as "ripped from a Frank Miller comic." They also praised the chemistry between Yung and Charlie Cox, which already seems to be more than present in this trailer.



The trailer also showed Matt becoming more sympathetic to Punisher's views than I would expect, conceding that his method "isn't working" (although I'm sure that change of heart won't last very long). Bernthal recently spoke about his role in the upcoming season, and called his character "completely unapologetic," which still makes him sound like a villain, or at least very much an antihero.


Opening quote
"This is a real responsibility and a real honor for me, and I just hope [with] all the hard work, that we got some of it right," Bernthal said in an interview with Marvel

"For me, it's to be completely unapologetic and to move forward one hundred percent and not concern yourself. One of the beauties of television is that you have enough time that you don't need to play everything in every moment. When you're involved in something that's very brutal and you know your audience is going to abandon you because of your actions, don't shy away from that. Just do it. Don't make it a half-measure; don't take your foot off the accelerator. Go full force, and trust that you will have the opportunity down the road to show why [you did that]."
