DrLight's Reviews - Marvel Studios' DAREDEVIL, SEASON 2.

The highly anticipated second season of Marvel's Daredevil has finally arrived! Hit the jump for my lasagna free, untethered, unspoilered, and completely unbiased review of this masterful masterpiece!

Reviews Opinion

It's that time of year where unbiased fans like me get to the rare opportunity to sit in front of a screen and watch true art unfold for thirteen hours, and I don't have to buy another movie ticket just to do it! All thanks to Marvel Studios, the undeniable geniuses behind such cinematic juggernauts as Thor, Iron Man 2, and last year's jumbo smash hit Avengers: Age of Ultron. Beginning last year, the handsome, rugged, but tragically married Kevin Feige unleashed a whole new variety of comic book adaptation on the world! These were comic books taken seriously, with real stakes and real drama, something that had never been seen in superhero media before. Ever.

Naturally, this proved to be a huge hit for both Netflix and Marvel Studios (or as I like to call them, MS) alike. So of course when it came time for the guys over at Netflix to pony up for another season, they took the path of least dorksistance and said yes! (Something which Netflix rarely does, so you know it's good!) So what's my unbiased take on how this additional season holds up? Well, I won't spoil anything, but HOLY TITS. It's amazing.

Both joining and battling against Matt in his crusade against badness (unfortunately, this doesn't extend to the Fox-Men, lulz) are the Punisher (Grudge Match's Jon Bernthal) and Elektra Natchios (played by Elodie Yung, of ABC's unaired Of Kings and Prophets pilot). I won't spoil anything, but when they come into Matt's life, there's some conflict! Also, there are ninjas! Lawyers! Bang! Pow! But I won't spoil anything for you there either. Of course, you read all this, and you wonder: 'Is there still room for that stellar supporting cast?'

Rest assured, Foggy Nelson and Karen Page are back with a vengeance. Continuing to fill their dynamic roles of plucky comic relief and occasional side player in the drama, Foggy and Karen remain as wonderful as ever. Take notes, Fox, this is how you do supporting characters, not that bullshit you fed us thirteen years ago. Yes, I still remember, and yes, I'm still bitter about it. Not to spoil anything, but Foggy and Karen are not bullshit.

Also of note is the terrific Charlie Cox, whose haircut is only rivaled by his abs. When he smiles, you can really feel his smouldering intensity. When he frowns, you can feel his inner turmoil. When he's just chillin', you wish it was Netflix and chillin'. He's a joy to watch both on the screen and off, and if you enjoyed him last season, you'll find a lot to love here.

As far as the writing goes, this is where my credentials as an English lit major come in the strongest. Since this is an unbiased review, I cannot confirm that the web the baes at MS have spun is without flaws. I cannot confirm that our major players and supporting cast don't all get a big hunk of meat to bite into. I can't even confirm how real the world of Marvel's Daredevil all feels to me because of how great the characterizations are. But I can't deny it either.

Overall, the Marvel Studios bulldozer keeps on a-chuggin', flattening anything that barely resembles competition in its path, and Daredevil season two is a primo example of that. Full of action, fun, and laughs, you'll feel like you are an English lit major, too, as you settle down with your gourmet popping corn for thirteen hours of the complex narrative and interesting characters that you can only get from an MS release. Here's to you, Kevin Baege.
