Place your bets, Marvelites. When Daredevil returns for its second season on Netflix, the streets of Hell’s Kitchen will quickly become an arena for The Man Without Fear and The Punisher.
New reports claim that Daredevil and The Punisher (played by Jon Bernthal) will lock horn heads throughout Daredevil Season Two. Marvel’s biggest vigilantes will grapple each other’s throats so fiercely, that most see Frank Castle as one of Season Two’s larger antagonists. And according to a anonymous source with Nerdist, Daredevil’s new co-showrunner Marco Ramirez has labeled the upcoming season as “Daredevil Vs. Punisher.” If Daredevil were around, he’d probably get a splitting headache from the cacophony of fans’ hearts exploding in their chests.
This face-off may transcend into a philosophical one, however, as Daredevil and Punisher will clash over their different executions of street justice (with Punisher taking "Execution" far more literally). There would still be another “big bad” lurking through the second season, whom Daredevil and Punisher would have to defeat together. Many point to Daredevil adversary Bullseye as the second season’s real villain, but Marvel has not confirmed the sadistic marksmen’s involvement yet.
So what do you think, readers? Are you ready to see Punisher and Daredevil tango through New York? Let us know in the comments!
