The second season of Daredevil is still far away (April 2016), but a teaser of it was shown on the New York Comic Con  and it features Elektra (Elodie Yung) and Punisher (Jon Bernthal).

New Daredevil co-runner Doug Petrie commented:

We love two things, and one of them is Matt Murdock. The other is the world Matt Murdock navigates. With the Punisher and Elektra, we get to take it darker and further. … The stuff you want to see, we want to see, and we can’t wait to show it to you.

Elodie Yung, who has an extensive background in martial arts, is clearly excited:

 It’s intense, it’s exciting. I can’t be more happy, really.

 

 

Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb revealed that Jon Bernthal  had talked with Marvel about him possibly playing Punisher before Daredevil was even a series. Bernthal himself said at the Comic Con:

I know how important this character is to you guys,I know that. I know how important this show is to you guys. I know how important he is to law enforcement and the military. I look at this as a huge honor, a huge responsibility. … I give you my word, I’m going to give everything I have.
