Spoiler Warning: If you’re hoping to avoid spoilers for the upcoming second season of Daredevil, I’d suggest you stop reading this post immediately. Not only will the photos below possibly give away the costumes for newcomers Elektra (Elodie Yung) and Frank Castle/The Punisher (Jon Bernthal), but a link to set photos potentially confirming the authenticity of the below promos may tease certain bits of the upcoming season.
Proceed with caution.
On Monday, Netflix and Marvel released the first of two trailers for the highly anticipated second season of Daredevil, putting the focus on newcomer Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle, with the promise of a possible Elektra-centric trailer to follow on the 22nd. Unfortunately, while the trailer brought plenty of exciting moments and helped to establish the Punisher within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the one thing it didn’t do was showcase any sort of a costume for the vigilante.
However, thanks to a few fans on Tumblr, that looks to have changed as they seem to have stumbled upon possible promo art for the upcoming season. In the images below, we can clearly make out Daredevil’s cracked-cowl, as we previously pointed out in our trailer breakdown (here). More importantly, though, is that the costumes that showrunner Macro Ramirez promised during the TCAs earlier this year appear to be on full display – with Bernthal’s Castle even seemingly sporting his character’s famous skull logo.
While there’s no information concerning where exactly these images came from, it is worth noting that a set photo from last year showed Elektra fighting beside Daredevil in a similar costume to the one pictured above.
(Note: These look like promo images the streaming service would use on site. It’s possible they accidentally leaked these, much like they did the red suit last year. However, while these do appear to be legit, it’s important to note the original source hasn’t been revealed.)
The second season of Daredevil will hit Netflix on March 18th, 2016!
As always, for all things Daredevil be sure to follow along here.
