In other Daredevil news…


Marvel Television executive Jeph Loeb has confirmed that (see pic above) Carl “Crusher” Creel, the Absorbing Man from Agents of SHIELD (below), is in Daredevil. Well, sort of.

It seems that Creel, as a younger man, was a fighter and once got in the ring with Matt’s father, boxer Battlin’ Jack Murdock.

Leob has said: “If you look at it, there’s actually a very critical line, which is, ‘Battlin’ Jack is doing very well against a much younger fighter, so the idea is, we looked at it from the point of view of, Mike Tyson was the heavyweight champion when he was 18 years old. [Brian Patrick Wade], who plays him in the show, looks like he’s in his mid-30s, so there was enough time for us to be able to say, ‘There’s no reason why that isn’t the same person.’”

It is indeed all connected…

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 9:00 on ABC, while Daredevil hits Netflix on April 10.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
