Please pinch me, I must be dreaming, or did I just became more excited for this than a majority of upcoming blockbusters. Entertainment Weekly just released photos and interviews from Daredevil's show-runners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie. Season one of this show blew away the expectations and seriously has me contemplating, did Netflix just bypass the summer blockbusters in term of quality. This show has thirteen hours to dive into a complex story, without restrictions of being family friendly.
Casting Jon Bernthal as the Punisher, also proves that both of Marvel's entertainment divisions understands what the fans want, that is unprecedented. If you want spectacle(nothing wrong with that), then joining the MCU in the theaters is the place for you. The next season of Daredevil will compare the styles of vigilante justice that both heroes are keen on delivering, and also have the Punisher trying to lure Matt over to darker side.
How excited are you to see interactions between Elektra and Murdock, and what influence will her presence have on the scarlet savior? Another thing that I have been wondering a great deal on, what other heroes of Hell's Kitchen will appear?This would be too great of an opportunity not to have Luke Cage, or Jessica Jones appear to save Matt from either himself, or one of the two new additions! I believe that television shows offer a more comprehensive look into how hard it is to actually be a hero. Down below are some quotes the show runners shared with Entertainment Weekly, and they only added fire to they hype!
Matt’s a deeply moral complicated guy and she’s [Elektra] just the best bad girlfriend you can possibly have,” Petrie says. “She does everything wrong and attractive, she’s his id, the wild side. Matt is always taming his wild side. Elektra just lets it out. He’s both repulsed and deeply drawn to that.” Doug Petrie
“The advantage of any sequel is you can dive right in,” Petrie says. “We hit the ground running and then we ran as fast as we f—ing could.” Doug Petrie
“Viewers watching the show will be rooting for this guy with a gun but we’re also going to force people — the way we force Matt — to second-guess themselves. Taking lethal justice into your own hands in America in 2015 is tricky s–t. We have not shied away from the rich complicated reality of Now. If you’ve got a gun and you’re not the police you’re going to incite strong feelings. We’re stirring the pot and we’re aware of the headlines where we live and we’re trying to get people to think.” PetrieWith all these things occurring in the second season how excited are you ?
