The poster for season two pays homage to The Last Judgement, Michaelangelo's painting depicting the Christian Apocalypse. On the left of Michaelangelo's painting are people ascending to Heaven (depicted in the poster by Foggy, Karen, etc.) while the people on the right (Fisk, Vanessa, Wesley, etc.) are cast into Hell. Separating the two groups is Christ (in this poster, Matt himself). See more »

Unexpected surprise - A definite watch for any Comic Book, Graphic Novel, or Superhero Movie Fanatic
I have watched 7 episodes thus far and I have to say, I am both surprised and excited by this show.
I should say that "Daredevil" with Ben Affleck was my childhood movie - I was 11 years old. I didn't all out hate the movie despite the poor reception, and still don't, but even as a child I recognized it could have been so much better, for a thousand and one reasons. So when I heard Netflix was making a refurbished "Daredevil", I was skeptical at its success but also curious about its angle and possibilities the show could bring. To my surprise, Netflix's Daredevil fulfills that childhood longing of a better "Daredevil" - the show is both thrilling and well designed. The plot is exceedingly engaging and thrilling.The cast is also remarkable - which was an unexpected surprise. I had some doubts about the lead but I can say that I am impressed by Charlie Cox. As a fan of True Blood, it has also been a pleasure to see Deborah Ann Woll.
All and all, this show, for its make and platform, is a hit. I am more than confident the remainder of the season will continue to be just as good if not better. I highly recommend for any Comic book, Graphic Novel, and Superhero-Movie fanatic.
