Daredevil Season 2 Trailer Teases Elektra, The Punisher

"Bang."

And with that lone, morally-ambiguous word, Jon Bernthal announces his entry into the Marvel Universe in season two of Netflix's Daredevil.

On the heels of a critically-acclaimed first season, it seems that Daredevil will be pulling out all the stops the second time around. In addition to former Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal's much-anticipated turn as The Punisher, Elodie Yung will also be joining the cast that includes Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson, and Elden Henson. Yung will take the role of Elektra, the ninja assassin originally played by Jennifer Garner in the 2005 box office bomb.

But fret not, for Daredevil executive producer Jeph Loeb promised that Yung and Cox would "bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for."

Let's hope this "tumultuous relationship" involves plenty of sai-play.

We may only get brief glimpses of both Elektra and The Punisher in the teaser trailer for the second season of Daredevil, which was released by Marvel and Netflix at their New York Comic-Con panel over the weekend, but they are certainly enough to leave a lasting impression. Bernthal's Punisher, for instance, appears to be walking through a hospital with a machine gun, which means he is either about to fulfill the most twisted Make-A-Wish request ever or dole out some wholly over-the-top street justice.

Daredevil Season 2 drops "sometime" in 2016. Get hype, you guys.
