Possibly one of the best shows of 2015 was none other than the Netflix original, Daredevil. The R-rated show debuted in April last year and Marvel fans went bonkers! We have finally received an awesome version of Daredevil on the small screen. It turns out Daredevil is a perfect character for TV, even the way Netflix releases the whole series at once. The success of the show gave us Jessica Jones last fall, which was also very good. We're also expecting Luke Cage and a whole Marvel/Netflix cinematic universe. Fans have been waiting desperately for Season 2 to see the return of Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson, and especially Wilson Fisk. Now the debut date has been announced so us sweaties can start counting the days, and it is definitely an interesting date to debut the second season.
Daredevil Season 2 Debuts on March 25th, The Same Day Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice Is Released!
We knew Daredevil was going to come out sometime in early April but I had no idea Marvel would drop it on the day of Batman vs Superman! This is not the first time this has happened with Batman vs Superman as both it and Captain America: Civil War were both being released on the same day. DC was the one to move their place back to March 25th. It almost looks like Marvel is deliberately trying to mess with DC. Perhaps they are scared that this is going to be the biggest superhero movie of the century as it has the potential to do so introducing the two most famous superheroes onto the big screen together for the first time and having them battle, and introducing the Justice League onto the big screen.
There are a lot of Daredevil fans, so will this affect box office numbers? Maybe, but think about it this way: they are eventually going to go see the movie even if the person decides to binge watch Daredevil rather than go to the cinema to watch the epic showdown. In theory, this would only affect the opening weekend box office numbers. No matter what, DC and Warner Brothers are not happy about this sneaky move by Marvel. It's probably a bit too late to move Batman vs Superman at this point, so what will DC do?
