Netflix has set a March 18 premiere date for season two of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” putting to rest rumors that the popular comic adaptation would share a March 25 premiere date with Warner Bros.’ movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

A new teaser, poster and press photos of the sophomore season have also been released and suggest that it isn’t a comicbook canon that could be in jeopardy this year. Charlie Cox’s blinded hero Matt Murdoch is a Catholic and there are several photos of him in church. But the teaser and poster reference Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and suggest there’s cracks in the foundation.

The images also include shots of new season two characters Elektra (Elodie Yung) and the Punisher (Jon Bernthal).

Season two of “Daredevil” welcomes new showrunners Marco Ramirez (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Fear the Walking Dead”) and Douglas Petrie (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “American Horror Story”). They exec produce along with Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones”), who also serves as Marvel’s head of television.

As is Netflix’s custom, the new “Daredevil” episodes will hit the digital channel at 12:01 a.m. on March 18.
