Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil only debuted last Friday, but it’s pretty likely that many of us have already finished the show’s 13 episode first season. Even more likely is that we’re now eager to see more from the Netflix and Marvel team-up, which includes shows dedicated to Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
The four aforementioned characters will all appear side-by-side in the eventual Defenders crossover series, but all of these shows are connected to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, meaning the masses want to see the other characters we’ve come to know over the years, as well as some new ones.
One in particular is Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, who is another vigilante character that has his own (more brutal) way of doing things, and he’d probably fit pretty well in the now-established Daredevil/ Netflix universe. You know who else would like to see him show up? Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox.
Really? Does he know something we don’t?
Probably not? Maybe? Who knows when it comes to Marvel and their plans, but in a recent interview with ET, Cox said he’d like to see Castle pop up at some point, if only because it’d be “an interesting situation.”
Have those two characters ever met before?
Daredevil and The Punisher? Oh yeah. In one miniseries, appropriately called Daredevil vs. Punisher, the two crossed paths, but as the title suggests, it wasn’t a peaceful meeting.
Well, who won?
Come on. It wouldn’t be right to spoil the whole thing, would it?
Okay, okay. Any other characters that could make a cameo?
We doubt any other character will be as stealthy as Stan Lee, but nothing’s been announced right now. However, it’s likely that Marvel will do something to keep people watching. Outside of that though, Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) wouldn’t mind seeing Iron Man/Robert Downey Jr., while Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page) put in a vote for Spider-Man. As she puts it, “He feels like he has kind of a street-level grit to him.”
And since there are plans for Spidey to show up in a future Marvel movie (probably Captain America: Civil War), it wouldn’t be too far out there to hope he’d spend some time in Hell’s Kitchen. He does reside in New York, after all.
I’m okay with this happening.
Me too, friend, me too.
