The Man Without Fear may have a few frights in his near future.
In a new promo for season two of Marvel’s Daredevil, Netflix announces that the superhero series will return March 18 -- interestingly, one week before DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lands in theaters.
“Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen,” Netflix teases. “Now, the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame -- Elektra Natchios.”
We know that Elodie Yung (Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) will play Elektra and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) will be Frank Castle. Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox, predicted the latter when ET asked about his dream superhero crossover. “That would be an interesting situation,” he suggested.
The season two description continues:
“Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.”
Now, will season two mark the return of Vincent D'Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk? We’ll have to wait until March to find out, but we are pretty sure this go-around will contain just as many shocking moments, Fisk or not.

“There are now 500 channels, so you have the ability to sit and flip and flip and flip,” Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of TV, previously told us. “So you'd better come up with something that people go, ‘Wait! What was that? Go back!’ That’s what we try to do.”
Perhaps someone else will get their head smashed off using a car door?
