This is not the first sneak peek at Matt Murdock in the show fans have gotten, with the confirmation of his appearance coming in the first trailer back in November.
Charlie Cox Returns in Gory Glory
Echo's newest trailer demonstrated why the five-episode series will be rated TV-MA — the television equivalent of an R-rating — with a new scene featuring Charlie Cox's Daredevil.
In a demonstration of the gore in the new series, behind the pair as they fight was what appeared to be a body, seemingly unconscious, leaning against the wall.
Doubling down on what was already a fairly intense and gory minute of footage, the trailer reminded viewers to "set [their] Disney+ profile to TV-MA to stream." Behind this reminder is what appeared to be a dead body, with blood coming out of the head, possibly being wrapped up in plastic.

Will Echo Have a Hallway Fight?
If the latest Echo trailer does nothing else, it proves that there is a high chance Echo will follow in the footsteps of Netflix shows like Daredevil and Defenders by including a hallway one-shot fight sequence.
This was a type of sequence used at least once a season in Daredevil and even showed up again when the character returned in She-Hulk.
Given Echo is the MCU's first TV-MA project since the Netflix shows, it makes sense that it would take inspiration from more than just those shows' gory elements.
Further, the new trailer is shot in what appears similar to a one-shot sequence, despite there in fact being camera cuts. Whether or not this was meant as a tease for something to come remains to be seen.
