Most have finished the first season of Marvel’s “Daredevil” are awaiting season two. Although season one was fantastic, the second can do many things to improve upon it. Here is my list of the things we NEED to see in “Daredevil” season two. WARNING: SEASON ONE SPOILERS AHEAD.
The introduction of Bullseye. Besides Wilson Fisk himself, Bullseye is Daredevil’s top villain. He wouldn’t be hard to introduce either. All that would have to happen is Fisk wants to get revenge on Daredevil, so he hires Bullseye to do it.
Further character development of the hatred between Kingpin and Daredevil. While I’m assuming he won’t be the main villain of season 2 (I’m hoping that Bullseye will be), we will definitely see Fisk be brought back as an antagonist. Likely he won’t be around for a few episodes either, quick progression is also key.
Gradual introduction of Elektra. Elektra, in the comics, is probably the most important character in the Daredevil universe other than Matt Murdock himself. She was already mentioned in season 1, during one of the college flashback scenes, being referred to as “the smokin greek girl”.
The life Karen Page NOT come to an end. In the comics, Page had drug addictions, was Murdock’s first love, and even gave his secret identity away. Eventually, she died at the hands of Bullseye. Although I want to see Bullseye introduced as a formidable foe and important character, seeing Karen Page’s life end would be a problem.
The introduction to the Marvel TV series crossovers. What I mean by this is not to have Iron fist, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones be characters in the second season, but lead us into their storylines. We’ve already seen a few Iron Fist easter eggs, but we need more than that in this upcoming season.
Foggy to have more time to shine. While yes, he does provide much needed comic relief at times within the first season, he doesn’t play a very important role. He has ambitions to do good and help the city, something that should be further developed. He also has an obvious attraction to Karen Page, something that could cause conflict between him and Murdock.
More courtroom drama. Thus far into the series, we really haven’t seen much of Matt being a lawyer. This is something that should play a pivotal part in the show.
A character as good as Ben Urich. Yeah, this may be a little bias, but the death of Ben Urich really hit me. Urich was my favorite character of the first season, and played a crucial part. Introducing another reporter would be a great addition. Maybe have this reporter work at the daily bugle, leading into a Peter Parker/ Spiderman cameo?
And finally, last up on my list, a Frank Castle/ Punisher cameo. Do I even need to explain why season two needs this? Punisher is such a badass character, a fight scene between him and Daredevil would be amazing!
What do you want to see in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil?
