“Marvel’s Daredevil” Season Two – Official Trailer

Daredevil, Punisher, Elektra…and The Hand?!?! Season two of “Marvel’s Daredevil”, on Netflix, is setting up to be a bloody, sexy, roller coaster of violence. Sure to send any fanboy into a geek-gasm.

Netflix has just released the official trailer for the new season, debuting March 18th. The video shows off more footage of Elodie Yung’s Elektra Natchios. The one time lover of Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, and deadly martial-artist. Her and Matt’s story looks to be more central to the overall plot of the season then we were originally lead to believe.

And you can’t have a new trailer without more action from Jon Bernthal as the Punisher. But the big revelation is that we will get our first glimpse’s of the underground crime syndicate known as The Hand. The long time foe of Daredevil in the comics (like Hydra is to Captain America), they are sure to enable the creators of the show to unleash some hellacious fight scenes upon our eyes, as the season plays out.

You can find the trailer below, ready for your fanboy/girl review, in all its glory.

Casting Conundrum: Should Iron First be Played by an Asian (American) Actor?

It articulates clearly the pros and cons of the debate. While giving some key background on the character and why it makes for awkward story-telling in the world we live in today.

So after giving it a look I pose the question to you: Should Iron Fist not be played by a white man that matches the character in the books?
