(Warning - the following contains a full-length trailer for Season 2 of Daredevil, and as such can be considered to contain moderately-sized SPOILERS. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests to you is wise...)
Now, the first full-length trailer for the second season of Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil was great and all – I mean, who doesn't want to see The Punisher being all Punisher-y? – but there was one thing it very much seemed to lack: Elektra.
Barring a brief cameo at the very end, our first look at Daredevil Season 2 seemed intent on giving us as little information about the fan-favorite ninja assassin as possible – something that was almost impossible to bear for many of us.
The Latest Trailer Is Full To Bursting With Elektra-Based Awesomeness
With the main one-two punch coming from Elodie Yung seeming set to be ridiculously badass in the role, and the character clearly getting a whole lot of Daredevil-interaction-based (and evidently comic book faithful) screen time.
Possibly the most (geekily) exciting detail in there, though?
There's an 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Reference Hiding in There
Yup, that's right. It seems the Dogs of Hell are coming to Daredevil.
Which, since we last saw the gang way back in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 (they were the ones co-opted by Lorelai), is very much an official 'crossing over' from one show to another. Which in turn – even if it's currently limited to just this small crossover – means that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil are actively being connected to one another.
Which is AWESOME.
What do you think?
Just how excited are you to see Elektra?
