The hype for ‘Daredevil’ Season 2 continues to grow, this time spurred on by the star of the show himself, Charlie Cox. While speaking recently with IGN at the TCA Press Tour, Cox talked about trying to top the infamous hallway scene from Season 1, in his words:

“In terms of this season, there are a number of really good fights. There is one in particular that I’m really excited about because it’s kind of like an homage to that scene, but it’s almost like that scene on crack.”

For anyone unaware of what scene Cox is referring to, check out the amazing hallway fight scene from ‘Daredevil’ Season 1 below:

While Cox did not go into detail about what will make the new fight scene so spectacular, he did take some time to discuss the original hallway scene and why he felt it was so amazing:

“Because it was shot in one [take], when we were shooting it — and my stunt double [Chris Brewster] did much more of it than I did  — … everyone was so tired. There was periods of time in the fight there were moments when he was leaning against the wall. That’s something people forget to do when they edit a fight scene. That’s what made it so real for me. If you get in a fight, that’s what it’s like.”

Also on this topic, we have a recent conversation with Jon Bernthal, who will be playing the vengeful vigilante The Punisher in ‘Daredevil’ Season 2, who talks about how the fighting styles and action are going to change this season due to the introduction of the Punisher and Elektra:

“I think once you introduce a character like Frank Castle, once you introduce a character like Elektra, the stakes are raised a little bit in terms of the fighting. All of the sudden you’re talking about weapons. Different questions are being brought up. I think what is the genius of Phil Silvera, the fight coordinator and stunt coordinator who choreographs these fights, is the fights are all character-driven and the fights tell a story. It’s not just to look pretty or to look cool.”

What do you think? Will ‘Daredevil’ Season 2 be able to live up to the high bar set during the first season for action set pieces and choreography? Is there a chance they are trying to do too much in Season 2, and might lose the simplistic beauty of the Season 1 fights? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
