Ever since Marvel first announced it’s Netflix shows, fans have been clamoring for some sort of crossover between the characters in the movies and those from television. While Agents of Shield and Agent Carter notably contained a lot of references and even a couple cameos by notable movie characters, the movies themselves have always failed to acknowledge the shows. This has been especially true of the Netflix Universe. And while the gap between Kevin Fiege and TV executive Jeph Loeb seems to be only growing wider, fans are still hoping for some sort of acknowledgement of the street-level characters in next summer’s Avengers: Infinity War. Now, recent evidence suggests that this just might happen!
Thanks to Reddit and Comicbook.com, we now have our first look at an Easter Egg in the Avengers: Infinity War lego sets that references Daredevil:
“Crime Floods the Street” reads the front page in a small New York Bulletin newsstand. The red outline of Daredevil can be seen in the newspaper which Karen Page currently works for. You can see the actual thing right here.
As small as this information seems, it’s the barest evidence of a collaboration that fans have been clamoring for. While Feige and Loeb have always claimed that “#itsallconnected” in the Marvel Universe, the idea of the Defenders showing up alongside the Avengers has always been shot down. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders all referenced the events of the original Avengers movie only barely. Could this all be changing? Even if we don’t see the actors suit up in Avengers: Infinity War, it would be great to see at least some sort of Easter Egg to keep all those ravenous fans from going crazy!
