I imagine there will be a time in the not-so-distant future (if we haven’t reached it already), in which there’s a constant stream of MCU news and set pics being hurled at us, a frightened and confused public. This will be because a new project will always be in the middle of filming. The next release date will always be just around the corner. But like I said, we may have reached this point already.
We learned today that cameras are officially rolling on the second season of Daredevil. For those of you who haven’t had a weekend to sit alone in your living room, block out the rest of the world, and shotgun all thirteen episodes, you’re really missing out because the show is pretty damn good. Anyone who’s watched it will tell you that’s it’s very different in tone from the rest of the Marvel universe. Darker and much grittier. The first season co-starred Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, who was without a doubt the most fully realized villain the MCU’s given us so far. His performance is reason alone to watch the show. Go ahead. Check it out. I’ll wait.
Pretty cool, huh? Anyway, Shelly Kay, a photographer based in Manhattan, scored boocoo pics from the set in East Harlem today. I’ve posted a couple below, but make sure sure to check out her Twitter page for many, many more. Hopefully, these will be enough to tide us all over until we see Jon Bernthal make his debut as the Punisher and hopefully deliver the line, “M’ask ya somethin you ready for your punishment?”
Anyway, check out the pics below.
I have to say that I’m surprised to be seeing this happen so quickly. For a while, we weren’t even sure that the show would be getting a second season. Or if it was, when it would premiere. The renewal was only announced toward the end of April, so scripts being written, parts being cast, and production ramping up seems to have happened really fast. That makes me feel good, because it suggests that Netflix and Marvel knew all along that the show was going to be renewed — despite the typical hemming and hawing from those in charge — and have known, at least for a while, where they’d like to take the story. It’s almost as if Marvel has experience making long, drawn-out plans. Anyway, I can’t wait to see where they take the whole thing. And, man, that Punisher’s gonna be awesome.
