Even fans unable to attend New York Comic-Con have been able to catch a glimpse of Elodie Yung's portrayal of Elektra and Jon Bernthal's turn as the Punisher. A poor-quality cell phone video of the "Daredevil" season 2 trailer, screened during Saturday's Marvel/Netflix "Daredevil" & "Jessica Jones" panel, has leaked online.
Video leaks of this nature have become as much a staple of comic convention season as "con flu," with fans outside of both panels and shows desperate to know as much as possible about the upcoming projects and stories that star their favorite characters.
The "Daredevil" Season 2 footage screened at the Marvel/Netflix panel was highlighted by quick cuts that showed Elodie Yung wrapping Elektra's trademark red bandanna around her face, Jon Bernthal haunting the halls of a hospital as Frank Castle, and an examination of a familiar, menacing skull.
Despite the lengths studios and publishers go to in an attempt to protect footage and manage excitement and expectations, fans have come to expect leaks like this around the highest-profile conventions. Like con flu, some things just can't help but go viral.
The second season of "Daredevil" will be made available on Netflix, coming 2016.
