Watch ‘Daredevil’ Season 2 Fight Charlie Cox Called Hallway Scene ‘On Crack’
Daredevil Season 2 has proven to be a very different animal than its predecessor, but that hasn’t stopped the Netflix Man Without Fear from one-upping his past. Watch the full five-minute hallway fight that Charlie Cox compared to the first season sequence “on crack”!
You’re warned of minor Daredevil Season 2 spoilers from here on out, but the full closing fight sequence from third episode “New York’s Finest” has made its way online, following the premiere on March 18. In it, Matt Murdock fights his way down through an entire building’s worth of Dogs of Hell bikers (one of several Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. connections the series makes), attempting to protect an unconscious Frank Castle.
Previously, Cox said of the sequence:
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.
Fight coordinator Phil Silvera also spoke to Entertainment Weekly of the difficulty involved in the Season 2 battle:
For the stairwell sequence, it was hard to get everybody in there to be able to do it, and the camera had to move in a specific way so it’s safe for the performers and stunt men. It’s a very tight space. We had multiple people fighting in there, falling down staircases, going over banisters, getting kicked down stairs … At the bottom, where you have almost six guys coming at him, you’re swirling in and out and around it. We definitely did a lot more handheld, passing the camera back and forth to each other for the sequence.
All episodes of Daredevil Season 2 are now streaming on Netflix.
