Whether or not Netflix’s Daredevil is a part of the MCU canon is officially confirmed by Marvel’s new teaser trailer for the upcoming Disney+ series Echo. Reintroducing the powerful “Kingpin” Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is the main goal of the teaser. Wilson Fisk is seen in black and white, reflecting on his first experience with blood and violence as a young boy, when he saw his mother being abused and took a hammer to his father’s head, killing him and breaking his skull. This footage is taken from Kingpin’s scenes from the previous Daredevil. In between fighting his most formidable foe in the “Devil of Hell’s Kitchen,” Daredevil (Charlie Cox), the teaser rewinds to earlier moments of the elder Kingpin during the Hell’s Kitchen gang battles. The clip continues by hinting at the tension that would be present in Echo’s forthcoming first season. It depicts the violent struggle between Kingpin and his formerly adored niece Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), who seeks to murder him for manipulating her father William Lopez’s demise, as was disclosed in Hawkeye Season 1. There are also glimpses of Echo’s fight with Daredevil in the video. This fight was previously shown in a teaser and garnered mixed reactions from fans because of the action choreography.
Fans have been debating whether or not Daredevil on Netflix is canonical in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a number of years. When Matt Murdock made a reappearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the conversation took off. While the legendary Kingpin made his MCU debut in the Hawkeye series alongside his fan-favorite surrogate niece, Echo, who swiftly earned her own standalone series, Daredevil went on to feature prominently in the 2022 She-Hulk series and will return to star in Daredevil: Born Again. The controversy appeared to be resolved when Echo executive producer Brad Winderbaum stated in an interview that Netflix’s Daredevil series is, in fact, a part of the official canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This assertion is further supported by the use of Daredevil footage in an official teaser.
Though over half of Season 1’s eighteen episodes had already been produced, Daredevil, Echo, and Echo Kingpin are all scheduled to return after the end of Echo Kingpin. Daredevil: Born Again is now going through a creative change following a reorganisation of the show’s directors and writers in September. Echo is the first show to be published under the Marvel Spotlight label and the first mature-rated series in MCU history, but Vincent D’Onofrio is adamant that the show will have the same tone as its Netflix equivalent.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
