As we get closer and closer to the April 10 debut of the highly-anticipated Netflix series Marvel's Daredevil, the show's official Twitter account has released a new photo today, teasing a potential connection with ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The photo is a boxing match poster promoting an upcoming fight between Battlin' Jack Murdock, the father of Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock, and Carl "Crusher" Creel, who is also known as The Absorbing Man. As you may recall, Creel appeared in the Season 2 premiere Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "Shadows", portrayed by Brian Wade.
It remains to be seen if Brian Wade will reprise his role as Creel in Marvel's Daredevil, but the image brings up a few interesting questions about the show's timeline. There was no date given on the boxing poster, so it's possible that Jack Murdock may still be boxing, making it possible for Brian Wade to return as Creel. In the comic books, Jack Murdock was kept alive throughout Matt's college years, but if this fight is a flashback, it may provide some continuity issues, especially since no date or year is listed on the photo. However, it's also possible that a completely different actor will come aboard to play Creel.
It's worth noting that Brian Wade (36) is just a few years older than Charlie Cox (32), so it's possible that this fight could be a flashback. As far as we know, neither Jack Murdock or Carl Creel have been cast in Marvel's Daredevil, and it isn't known how much this fight will have an impact on the story. What are your theories regarding this mysterious image? Check it out below, and let us know what you think.
