One of the biggest critical and creative hits of 2015 was Marvel’s Daredevil, Netflix’s first entry into the comic book genre and the first stage in an ambitious, 5-series deal with Marvel. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist will culminate with the team-up mini-series The Defenders, telling the story of some of Marvel’s lesser-known, “street level” heroes working to clean up New York City.
This Friday is the day we’ve been waiting for since finishing the binge-watch of Daredevil last spring: Season Two drops with 13 brand new episodes, featuring the arrival of The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung). Bernthal’s Frank Castle will challenge Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) methods of taking down criminals without killing.
Also up this week: Supergirl gets her first dose of Red Kryptonite, turning her against her friends. Crane and Abbie are forced to work alongside their enemies on Sleepy Hollow, while Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D. find themselves working with General Talbot (guest star Adrian Pasdar, Heroes). Sunday on The Walking Dead, two different groups set out for supplies and face new dangers on the road.
