DAREDEVIL Season 2: New Details On 'Elektra' And 'The Punisher' Revealed

Daredevil showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez have revealed loads of new details about the Netflix series' take on Elektra and The Punisher, but will we see that iconic skull logo? Jon Bernthal meanwhile weighs in on the pressures which come with taking on this role...

Season two of Daredevil will be taking things to the next level with the introductions of both Frank Castle/The Punisher and Elektra. According to Entertainment Weekly, we should expect to find ourselves rooting for the violent vigilante when the show begins and he sets out on a mission to take out New York City's criminals. "Viewers watching the show will be rooting for this guy with a gun but we’re also going to force people — the way we force Matt — to second guess themselves," showrunner Doug Petrie says. "Taking lethal justice into your own hands is in America in 2015 is tricky shit. We have not shied away from the rich complicated reality of Now. If you’ve got a gun and you’re not the police you’re going to incite strong feelings. We’re stirring the pot and we’re aware of the headlines where we live and we’re trying to get people to think."

"He has a different moral code," adds co-showrunner Marco Ramirez. "Matt is a devout Catholic — and you rarely see a character who’s a devote anything on TV. Frank has Hammurabi’s Code. It’s like letting a great white shark into the water." Actor Jon Bernthal also weighed in on what he did to prepare for the role as the magazine seemingly confirms that he won't be sporting that skull logo in a bid to remain incognito. "People have been coming up to me on the streets of New York saying, ‘Do not mess this up,’" the actor said before revealing that he spent months walking across the Brooklyn Bridge to the set of Daredevil in order to get into The Punisher's "isolated and joyless" headspace. "This character has resonated with law enforcement and military. He’s brought the war home with him in the worst possible way. And the best thing about him is that if he offends you, he just doesn’t care." That sounds like a pretty perfect take on the character, right? 
 
Finally, it was revealed that we should expect a lot more sex in Daredevil season 2 as Matt Murdock gets closer to Karen Page and Elektra (Elodie Yung) makes her presence felt in Hell's Kitchen. "Matt’s a deeply moral complicated guy and she’s just the best bad girlfriend you can possibly have," Petrie says. "She does everything wrong and attractive, she’s his id, the wild side. Matt is always taming his wild side. Elektra just lets it out. He’s both repulsed and deeply drawn to that."
