After it's realization on screen, I relentlessly binged on the new Daredevil TV series that Netflix cooked up. You can read my thoughts on the show here, but that's hardly the point of this article. No, instead, this time I'll continue to try and connect the dots between the various MCU projects like I did in my first article, and ponder how the blind badass will join the movies, if and when he does so.

He'll come into play during Civil War

This one's a bit on the nose, but I figure its worth addressing. I think it's fair to say that Civil War is going to be huge. We'll see old bitterness resurface between Cap and Tony Stark, and new alliances forged in the heat of war. Maybe there's a chance one of these alliances will be with Daredevil. It's hard to say exactly which side he'd come down on, but in the comics he was directly opposed to registration, so if he does appear, it will probably be in support of Captain America.

Will Daredevil be in Civil War?

Based on the unconfirmed dates of release for Luke Cage and Iron Fist's TV shows, its unclear whether or not they will actually even have a show by the time Civil War happens, but we can assume that Daredevil Season 2 will be released around about the same time as Season 1, and AKA Jessica Jones is set to be released later this year, so there's a good chance that if Daredevil is in Civil War, Jessica Jones will be to, and her alignment, much like Daredevils, would be with Cap.

We won't see any of the Netflix heroes in the movies until Infinity Wars: Part 2.

This one almost disappoints me, but with how long it will take for Iron Fist and Luke Cage to come out, it almost makes more sense. I discussed this one a bit in the comment section of my other article, but I figure this is as good a place as any to expand on it. The way this theory starts out is that none of the characters beside the Avengers that we've already met (Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, so on and so forth) will be the only Avengers we see in Infinity Wars Part 1. They'll be doing there best against Thanos, but to no avail, as he consistently and effortlessly wipes to floor with them. By the end of Infinity Wars, they realize that nothing they can do will even slow Thanos down, and that they'll need some help. So, someone like Tony Stark goes into space to find some other worldly help, while someone (let's say Nick Fury) stays on Earth to find extraordinary people, such as Daredevil and the other Defenders, to help in the fight against Thanos.

This theory is kind of awesome, because it would explain why movies like Inhumans and Captain Marvel are happening in between the two Infinity Wars movies. Iron Man goes to Captain Marvel to ask for her help, while Nick pays a visit to the Inhumans (which, based on what I've seen of Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D., will probably have Fury's old buddy Coulson in it.) And, if I had to guess (which I do... this is a fan theory) a new season of Daredevil, maybe even a season of The Defenders series, will air during this time, and at the end of that season, we'll see Nick Fury appear to The Defenders and ask for their help, with as much eloquence and awesomeness one would expect from a former Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

What do you think?


How will Daredevil get tied into the movies?
