Following the tragic end of her brief superhero career, Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private investigator, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City.
When a sabotaged experiment gives him super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem and must soon confront his past and fight a battle for the heart of his city.
Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.
As a child Matt Murdock was blinded by a chemical spill in a freak accident. Instead of limiting him it gave him superhuman senses that enabled him to see the world in a unique and powerful way. Now he uses these powers to deliver justice, not only as a lawyer in his own law firm, but also as vigilante at night, stalking the streets of Hell's Kitchen as Daredevil, the man without fear.

In artwork for season 2 (and in a church mural shown as the camera pans out in the trailer), Daredevil is standing in the centre of a number of people. To his right are people from his life as Matt Murdock, and those he fights to protect including fire fighters, police, his father, Foggy, Karen, etc. To his left are people he encounters as Daredevil, including the Kingpin, Owlsley, Wesley, a Hand ninja, thugs, etc. (Stick is beneath him but more to the Matt Murdoch side, and other characters from the comics who will likely be revealed this season are present as well.) The entire picture is shadowed by the Punisher's skull symbol, indicating his importance in this season, and also the importance of Foggy which is represented by the amount of fog behind the characters on both sides of the picture. Matt / Daredevil is at the centre, symbolizing the balance he brings to Hell's Kitchen, and also displaying his pivotal role as the scales of justice which he affects as a lawyer and vigilante. The city is shown at the top and is the clearest part of the picture, since it is not clouded by either persona: it's the focus of both Matt and Daredevil. At the "heart" of the city, is the DD flamed symbol from the comics and season 1. See more »
Throughout the series, when adult Matt is shown reading, he moves both index fingertips across the page at the same time. A blind person places the left index fingertip at the edge of the line and keeps it stationary, to hold the place. Otherwise, the right index fingertip (which is the one that moves across the line of Braille) might not return to the start of the next line properly (it might get "lost" and skip a line or start one that had already been read). Child Matt does this more correctly than Adult Matt does. See more »
Didn't really have any expectations for Daredevil. After watching the movie as a kid and not overly enjoying it, I think Marvel has done an amazing job now that they have Daredevil back in their control. I love how mature it is compared to the other movies/shows Marvel have been doing in the MCU. The dark tone and violence they have incorporated will please a lot of people that have been wanting to see that from Marvel (me included). The cast and the writing are excellent and I look forward to possible appearances by other characters that Daredevil has either worked with or fought against in the comics. Very excited to see what else Marvel can produce with their characters that have yet to hit the screen.
