Daredevil Season 2 is almost here!

I've posted before about what a huge fan I was of Daredevil season 1. It really felt like the right way to make an adult and mature superhero show. And season 2 looks to be even more in that same vein.

First we have out hero dealing with the rise of an anti-hero known as the Punisher, Frank Castle, who had his family murdered by criminals and took to making them pay in return. This is a moral battle our hero, Matt Murdock will have to wage as Frank Castle kills every criminal he comes across as ruthlessly as possible. He is a broken man, and Matt is two steps away from being like him.

The first season had him up against the Kingpin, Wilson Fisk, who was Matt's opposite in every way, both in ferocity and in end goals. This time Frank Castle is a mirror image of who Matt could be should he make the wrong decision.

But that's not all.

An old flame of Matt's is back in town and informing him that he didn't actually beat the criminal element down. More merely arrived to try and take their place.

Now Matt might be fighting an endless war and there's no guarantee that he can win.

To be perfectly honest, this is exactly what I was hoping for from a second season of Daredevil. Continuing on from the themes that made the first season so great, this looks like it might actually outdo the first season. And that's a tall order.

March 18th can't come quick enough!
