TRAILER OF THE WEEK

Daredevil isn’t a TV show but its cinematography feels more cinematic than most TV shows. The show had its fair share of issues in its inaugural season (lack of Drew Goddard post-episode 2 hurt it significantly) but it’s still one of the best superhero shows (The Flash still beats everything). Season 2 is bringing in Elektra, the Greek assassin and love interest of Matt Murdock, and the antihero known as Frank Castle. You know him as The Punisher. This trailer from NYCC is 75% old footage honoring the show’s beginnings but the new material raises the anticipation to new heights. And hearing Jon Bernthal’s first line as The Punisher sends chills down my spine “Beg.”
