Marvel’s Daredevil, a Netflix original series, returns on March 18th and one Canadian city got a reveal at new costumes for the series characters. Charlie Cox‘s Daredevil, Jon Bernthal‘s anti-hero Frank Castle/The Punisher, and Elodie Yung as the ninja assassin Elektra Natchios were plastered on some billboards in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in their new gear and the results are fabulous.
Daredevil season 2 showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie told Collider a little bit about how these two new characters will impact this season…
“Because we knew, early on, that we had The Punisher and Elektra, we knew we didn’t want to repeat Season 1. It was Daredevil: Year One and Wilson Fisk: Year One. By the end of the season, he was a completely different person than he was at the beginning.”
“We knew we had 13 episodes [for season 2], so we wanted to find the coolest story we could do with these three characters and make the story feel really vibrant and alive in ways that are exciting to us. Most importantly, we wanted to make sure everything runs through Matt because it could easily become The Punisher story or the Elektra story that Matt cameos in, and not vice versa.”
“So, we built it like a Matt story, in terms of what we wanted to put him through, where we wanted to get him, by the end of the season, and what we wanted to have him learn about himself, and we used an Elektra and Frank story throughout, to get him there. We’re really proud of that and we really think it works.”
S All 13 episodes of Season 2 debuts on Friday, March 18 on Netflix.
