A 'Daredevil' Season 2 Avengers Crossover Isn't Entirely Out Of The Question
Thank goodness for Netflix, amirite? The video streaming website has been the cause of me canceling so many plans and eating so much takeout over the years, and now it looks like the tradition will continue. Netflix renewed Daredevil for Season 2, which is amazing news considering how good Season 1 was. The show has done a great job giving us a look into the lives of Matt Murdock and his friends as they attempt to bring down terrible villains like Wilson Fisk who attempt to destroy Hell's Kitchen with extreme violence. The plot, acting, action and cinematography of the show was awesome, but what for this Marvel-lover, I was drawn to Easter Eggs like Daredevil's mentions of The Avengers' Battle of New York (from the first Avengers film in which the gang faces Loki and the Chitauri). Aside from little callbacks to that incident, it might actually be possible for Daredevil to give us an actual Avengers crossover. Hear me out.
Honestly, anything is possible in the Marvel TV and film universe. While it's not likely for all of the Avengers to assemble on the Netflix series (just think about how much money it would cost the show to bring all those high-profile actors together), it's not entirely absurd to think that one or two could show up for a cameo. Hey, if Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D can do it, Daredevil can too!
The most obvious Avengers/Daredevil crossover would be if Natasha Romanov, aka Black Widow, were to stop by the series and work with Matt, Foggy, and Karen. In the comics, Natasha and Matt work together on a few occasions in both New York and also in San Francisco. They even become intimate for a while.
It seems to me that it makes the most sense for someone like Natasha or even Hawkeye to make an appearance on Daredevil, more so than Thor or Tony Stark or even the Hulk. Black Widow and Hawkeye are more subtle members of the Avengers team; they can blend in and work with a superhero like Daredevil more seamlessly. And seeing them interact with Matt and Matt's team would be really interesting. Can't you already imagine just how Foggy would react to meeting Natasha?
More than anything, it would make sense for Matt to just make an appearance in an Avengers movie, whether that be a film with all of the Avengers team assembled or just a standalone. In fact, it's extremely likely that Daredevil will turn up in Captain America: Civil War, but you could also argue that'd he's got room for an appearance in the third Avengers film. It works with both the potential plot lines of both films and Matt does eventually join the New Avengers team in the Marvel comics.
While nothing's certain, and crossing movies and TV isn't always as easy as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. makes it seem, let's just say the potential and the opportunity are both fully there.
