Marvel and Netflix have released a new Daredevil poster.motion poster and it seems to heavily focus on Matt Murdock’s Catholicism and the theme of… forgiveness.
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…
