Some sharp-eyed fans believe they spotted an easter egg in Daredevil, or more specifically they think they found a tie to Spider-Man. If so, it’s pretty cool. Man, I love easter eggs.
Where Is the Easter Egg?
The secret shows up in Episode 12, which is titled ‘The Ones We Leave Behind’.
[SPOILERS AHEAD]: You’ve been warned!
It appears when Ben is taking a drink from his glass, staring at his computer. In the scene, he’s getting ready to write a blog, in order to unearth everything bad about Fisk. The scene breezes by quickly so if you’re not paying attention it’s easy to miss.
In one of the newspapers posted on Ben’s pinboard — the far right one at the center-top — there’s an image of what looks to be a superhero. It’s difficult to make out, but it looks a lot like Spider-Man. At first glance I personally thought it looked more like The Flash but that wouldn’t exactly make sense since he’s from DC, not Marvel.
I screen capped the shot and highlighted the image in question so you can take a peek for yourself. If you have access to Netflix, then I highly encourage you to check out the scene on your own.
What do you think the easter egg is? Do you think it really is Spider-Man or another superhero? Do you think I’m insane?
