Since Daredevil - the hugely popular Netflix Series - has been renewed for a second season, I thought we could go over some of the things we might see in the new season.
Of course, before I go further, please be warned there are Spoilers Ahead if you have not seen all of Season 1 yet!
OK, when we ended Season 1, we saw Daredevil finally get his Red Suit, defeat the Kingpin, and send him to prison. Fisk's syndicate, decimated by the elimination of the Russian Mob,Nobu, and Leland, is left in tatters by the work of Daredevil, and to a lesser extent Stick. It looks like Vanessa, fiancee of the Kingpin is now in control of what's left.
It is unclear if Madame Gao will be around in Season 2. She left before things went from bad to worse in Season 1 and said she was going back home- wherever that might be (K'un Lun?)
The Heroin Operation in Hell's Kitchen was destroyed in a fire in Season 1, so it is unclear if the Chinese Triads will be a force to be reckoned with in Season 2. The logo on the packets was The Steel Serpent, a villain who might make an appearance in Season 2, or perhaps he'll wait until Iron Fist arrives on the scene...
So now, without further ado, here's what I think we'll see in Season 2.
1. The Hand
The Death of Nobu in Season 1 leaves the Japanese Faction in Hell's Kitchen (otherwise known as The Hand) very pissed off! Black Sky was killed by Stick and now Daredevil has defeated their Leader- Nobu. The Hand will be out in force and looking for Vengeance.
Look for the appearance of Kirigi to settle things with Daredevil.
Kirigi is an immortal. Well, he's been killed many times but The Hand brings him back by giving him their Souls to re-animate him in a ritual. He's going to be a tough villain for Daredevil to beat!
Elektra was mentioned (sort of) in Season 1 as "The Greek girl" in a College flashback with Matt and Foggy. Look for Elektra to show up in Season 2 as the deadly Freelance Assassin/Ninja ex-girlfriend who used to be a student of "The Chaste," which was led by Stick and his Compatriot: Stone. She later joined the Hand and totally went Dark Side after Stick cast her out.
Look for The Man, in whose hands anything becomes a deadly weapon, to appear in Season 2, as the New York Crime Families try to remove this upstart vigilante known as Daredevil from the scene. Bullseye is Daredevil's Deadliest enemy and I'm pretty sure Marvel Studios will give him his classic costume.
As far as Crime Bosses go? Look for Eric Slaughter to be in charge now that Kingpin is up the river.
In the comics, Eric Slaughter hires Bullseye to go after Daredevil. There's even a story-arc that involves Bullseye kidnapping Natasha Romanov as bait to lure out Daredevil. (Yes, Bullseye totally beat her @ss and brought her to Coney Island to draw out Daredevil. Bullseye is that Good.)
4. Black Widow
Black Widow was a huge part of Daredevil's story in the comics. They were romantically linked for years. It would be a great move for Marvel Studios to allow an appearance of Black Widow on the Netflix show and maybe do a few flashbacks of her and Matt when he first starts fighting crime. Since Black Widow does not get a solo movie, she should definitely have more screen time here on Daredevil.
5. Melvin Potter a.k.a. The Gladiator
Look for Melvin Potter to make a few improvements to DD's suit. The 1st suit was kind of a rush job for Daredevil, but he did great overall! Look for a slightly different mask (with red lenses). Melvin Potter did not realize DD was blind and gave him the Captain America type helmet with large eye holes for better peripheral vision. Also, look for the classic "DD" logo on his chest for Season 2.
While Melvin (The Gladiator) was an enemy of Daredevil's earlier in the comics. He is now an ally in newer comics, and I think Netflix will keep him as DD's ally and tailor. Unless of course, something BAD happens to Betsy...
OK! that's what I think we have to look forward to in Season 2 of Daredevil, and it's quite a bit! Charlie Cox mentioned they would start filming this fall and release on Netfix (as before) in April!
So what do YOU think?
