    Some new casting reveals. Matt Gerald is playing Gladiator, while Rob Morgan is playing Turk, a recurring character from Frank Miller's run.

    It's a little hard to make out, but it definitely could be. And ninja in red = Hand, so it looks like Daredevil will be introducing them to the MCU to a certain extent. Maybe the episode dealing with the Hand will also feature Stick's first appearance in the present day story? Though I'm also definitely expecting at least allusions to Elektra :).

    Y'know, I just realized, with Spidey now able to appear in the MCU, that also means that the Netflix shows might have access to his mob villains (Big Man, Hammerhead, Tombstone, the Enforcers, Silvermane, etc.). We could start seeing them pop up in season 2/Phase 2 of the Netflix, and I imagine that it might also cover more of Spider-Man's effect and presence on the street and in the MCU now that he's debuted and fighting crime :cool:.

    I wonder if we'll see Ben move to the Daily Bugle for season 2 of Daredevil or wherever he pops up next?

    My memory of the Hand is fuzzy, wasn't their main color red anyway?

    True, they could expand on hierarchy of the mob in NYC in Netflix season 2.

    Yep :).

    Definitely. I could even see Spidey's mob villains spread throughout the various Netflix shows to maybe set them up, or at least we might see a few tussle with Daredevil (he and DD always kinda shared a Rogues Gallery). We might even get a proper gang way storyline, which would be pretty cool, especially if it had Spidey crossover with the rest of the Netflix heroes/Defenders ;).

    Does anyone know what the song in the trailer is?

    So now that Melvin Potter is confirmed I bet he's the one who ends up making the red suit.

    So here's the word on the costume.

    I don't need justification for my street-level heroes wearing outlandish costumes to fight crime, though I'm probably a minority in that, but I respect and appreciate the creators still fitting it in the red suit and trying to justify it for a more grounded and realistic comic show like Daredevil is set to be. Especially when DeKnight brings up how it wouldn't be Daredevil without it ;).

    I mean, from a practical standpoint, I'd say it would probably be a better choice to use the red suit for Matt's secret identity since it has eyes and would mask that he's blind more easily than a suit with no eye slits. Unless crooks just assume that DD being ninja-esque means he doesn't need his eyes to beat them up :p.

    Looking forward to seeing the evolution of the Daredevil suit :cool:.

    Though I wonder if, when Spider-Man finally enters the MCU, if they'll show him using DD's red suit as an inspiration for his costume? Or at least the idea that he can wear something more colorful to fight crime on the streets. Then again, we're not likely to get another origin story, so I wouldn't be surprised if they don't really show Peter's development of the suit or the beginning of his career :sweat:.

    They've said they still don't know if the Netflix heroes will appear in the movies (and given Agents of SHIELD's track record they might not) so I can't imagine they'd go so far as to make Daredevil a big part of Spider-Man's origin.

    I see it! I see it :D!!!

    You can't make out much, but I'm pretty sure I spotted the horns and the DD chest emblem. Looks like the suit has Matt's mouth covered up, though I might be imagining it...

    Pretty cool teaser with the full cast though, and nice to finally get to hear who I presume is Ben Urich :).

    3/20: I saw Josie's Bar on the left side of Matt. I read on HitFix that the neon cross might be the Clinton Mission Shelter and the business called "Veles Tarth," roughly translates to "house of the magic devil."

    Set pics of Jessica Jones coming to her neighbor's aid against some bicyclist...

    3/23: New Daredevil image. "Sometimes even when you get knocked down, you can still win."

    3/25: Two stills for Daredevil released. Matt with his supporting cast and Kingpin meeting with Madame Gao.

    More photos from AKA Jessica Jones. Carrie Anne Moss and Rachel Taylor on set.

    It feels like time's been flying. The series seems so close now.

    So with Hellcat and Moss' character some are speculating they may be the first canonically LGBT characters in the MCU.

    Lucky! Hope it proves to be enjoyable and awesome for you TheVileOne :).

    Yeah, I've seen that too. Cool that we might finally have an official LGBT character/couple in the MCU, especially after Victoria Hand was killed off in Agents of SHIELD before that aspect of her character could come up :sweat:.

    Less enthusiastic about possibly changing Patsy's sexuality, though it's not that major an issue, and I could see the appeal of having (eventually) a LGBT Superhero in the MCU with Hellcat. Especially when most of the other LGBT heroes in the MU are Mutants...though Patsy might end up bisexual if they ever want to bring in her relationship with Daimon Hellstrom :ack:.
