I cannot believe that this Friday Daredevil season 2 will hit Netflix. I am so, so happy! And things just keep on getting better because a week later Batman v Superman hits theaters! I remember being completely sold on Daredevil after watching the first two episodes. I was excited for it even before the show came out because I wanted to know what Marvel on Netflix would look like.
This season we're getting the Punisher (Jon Bernthal), Elektra (Elodie Yung), and some awesome battles against The Hand. From what I've read about The Hand, it seems like they're basically mystical-ninjas and the sworn enemy of Stick's gang called The Chaste.
Charlie Cox sat down with ComicBook.com and shared these words about Daredevil in the MCU:
“Some people have [wondered] based on the tone the show, how Matt would fit in with the Avengers. I was reading Civil War the other day, and Matt Murdock… is kind of an ass. He’s in the back, standing around grumpy a lot of the time, and every now and again, he just says ‘Well, we’re not doing that’ or something to that effect, and I’m like, ‘That’s the character, we’re fine.’ So tonally, with Matt I think we’re right on point and he’d be a perfect fit in the larger MCU.”
So, what are the chances of seeing Daredevil in a prominent role in Marvel's MCU? I have no clue, but you must wonder — if Daredevil Season 2 follows the same success as the first season — will Kevin Feige let the gang from Netflix in? How will the battle go for Hell's Kitchen this season, and will that play into their battle to join the larger universe?
I personally would love to see Daredevil and Jessica Jones talk trash to the likes of Tony Stark, Captain America, and especially Spider-Man. It just doesn't feel right to have all these badass heroes in New York and have no one calling out Spider-Man for acting like a complete dork. I just read Dan Slott's The Amazing Spider-Man and it just made me that much more excited for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War!
Screenrant sat down Anthony Russo (co-director of Captain America: Civil War) and asked him about the chances of seeing The Defenders in Avengers: Infinity War. His words are not exactly something you would like to hear if you love Netflix's heroes:
“The films are controlled by a group led by Kevin Feige, so they function as a unit. Other products, even if they are from Marvel, are controlled by others. Then there is the possibility of a crossover, but it’s more complicated… Fox holds the rights to some of Marvel’s most popular characters, as does Sony and others. As storytellers, we only have control over what happens in Marvel movies, but everything is possible, Spider-Man (whose rights were held by Sony) became possible!“
I wish that Marvel TV and Marvel Studios would just get along and give the fans what we want. But that probably won't happen — just like me going on a date with Margot Robbie because she really likes my personality; or my comic book breaking in the top 100 in sales. Yet, I am going to keep hoping that one day we'll see Spider-Man and Daredevil on the big screen together! How excited are you for the upcoming season of Daredevil?
