Marvel’s television department is absolutely killing it on NetFlix.
Now three seasons into their run, things have thus far continued to get progressively better. Starting last spring with Daredevil, they set a different tone from the other Marvel properties, and delivered some serious fan-service. Great casting, brutal action sequences, addictively binge-worthy. November saw follow-up Jessica Jones successfully expand the television universe. Now, just this past weekend we were delivered the third installment – Daredevil season 2. The reactions have been overwhelmingly positive, especially in reference to Frank Castle.

Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson, and Karen Page attacked from different angles in season one, and their efforts combined to bring down the Kingpin and deliver us an excellent new series to binge. It was the first of the new Marvel shows on the streaming giant NetFlix, and it exceeded the expectations of most fans, setting a tone that Jessica Jones was able to beautifully followup.
Now here we are, into year two of Marvel’s NetFlix lineup, and before the Luke Cage show premieres September 30th, fan outcry has forced a second showing from the devil of Hell’s Kitchen. Today, the final trailer before Friday’s release dropped…

Lawyer by day, vigilante by night.
Not only is Daredevil returning, but it looks like we’ll be heading back to Hell’s Kitchen sooner than anticipated. Originally, the assumption was that Daredevil’s second season would premiere sometime in April, much like the first season did. Then, a couple of days ago, we seemed to have “confirmation” that the show was coming on March 25th, pitted against Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, with the release of this new teaser, it would seem the actual date is a week earlier; March 18, 2016. That’s only 10 weeks away!

Think villains are rough? Trying facing the real-world networks. That’s what Marvel characters Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage encountered as their series underwent the scrutiny of parent television company Netflix. (We dealt with Iron Fist’s issues like racial background in an earlier post.)
