At the Daredevil Season 2 premiere, there was inevitably a lot of talk about the huge moment from last year: the hallway fight. A single-shot scene, that fight showed Daredevil (or, proto-Daredevil Matt Murdock)'s sense of purpose in a way that no amount of dialogue and exposition could have. So how do they build on such a feat?
"All we ever want to do is continue to tell the stories that the writers are writing," stunt coordinator and second unit director Philip Silvera told ComicBook.com in an interview at the premiere. "We're not doing extra gags for the sake of doing them, or longer fights for the sake of it, it's what's driving the story forward. That's important to the action design of these characters. We have more characters with more designs, and more stories we're telling, and it's always unique to them."
As far as his personal favorites – "that’s like the ‘which child do you love most’ question," he joked. He did offer up some specific teases, though.
"Three has a great sequence, it’s different, almost like we’re paying homage to the hallway fight in season one, but it’s a totally different story, so it’s got its own base to go on," he teased. "Then there are episodes down the line that I’m really excited for. Episode 9, Episode 11, I think every episode has great scenes, though."
Daredevil Season 2 premieres Friday, March 18 only on Netflix.
