Marvel's second season of "Daredevil"on Netflix has a slightly darker tone than the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hell's Kitchen isn't stocked with cute villains in elaborate capes, instead it's Vincent D'Onofrio in a business suit bashing in someone's head with a car door.
Even the main character, mild-mannered lawyer Matt Murdock by day and crime fighting Daredevil by night, and his mission to rid the northern lands of New York of all wrong-doers everywhere are considered naive. And this notion is shared by Charlie Cox, the very actor who plays the Man Without Fear. But perhaps that's what allows this bloody drama to ground the idea that a blind man could also moonlight as a vigilante.
And now the series is moving the Punisher, one of the more violent members of the Marvel-verse, onto Daredevil's block. No doubt things will get ugly.
We spoke with Cox before the premiere of the new season and pressed him for details on the new season, insights into Daredevil's mind and how he thinks the stunt crew can top last year's famous hallway fight scene.
Elektra [Elodie Yung], of course, presents a very, very different side to Matt. Matt Murdock gets in touch with his dark side and his chaotic side in his, kind of, devil may care side, excuse the pun. Basically I think is the main challenge that I can sum up a little bit is that Matt Murdock gets pulled in every single direction possible.
