The advantage of any sequel is you can dive right in. We hit the ground running and then we ran as fast as we f—ing could.”- Showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie
Doug Petrie goes to talk about the drive of Frank Castle and connection to our world today.
“Viewers watching the show will be rooting for this guy with a gun but we’re also going to force people — the way we force Matt — to second-guess themselves,” Petrie says. “Taking lethal justice into your own hands in America in 2015 is tricky s—t. We have not shied away from the rich complicated reality of Now. If you’ve got a gun and you’re not the police you’re going to incite strong feelings. We’re stirring the pot and we’re aware of the headlines where we live and we’re trying to get people to think.”
He continues on to talk Matt and Frank’s moral code which will show that we are dealing with two different people.
“He has a different moral code,” he says. “Matt is a devout Catholic — and you rarely see a character who’s a devotee anything on TV. Frank has Hammurabi’s Code. It’s like letting a great white shark into the water.”
Petrie goes onto talk about the introduction of Elodie Yung as Elektra and how Daredevil will be drawn to her dark side
Matt’s a deeply moral complicated guy and she’s just the best bad girlfriend you can possibly have,” Petrie says. “She does everything wrong and attractive, she’s his id, the wild side. Matt is always taming his wild side. Elektra just lets it out. He’s both repulsed and deeply drawn to that.”
The show is definitely pushing the dark envelope with Season 2. Expect to see more dark layers and sex when Daredevil returns to Netflix on 2016.
