12 Predictions for “Marvel’s Daredevil” Season 2




Stilt-Man Won’t Stand Tall in Hell’s Kitchen

Marvel’s Daredevil isn’t stingy with the Easter eggs in Season 1. Those familiar with the comics should have been able to scope out a few of them in Melvin Potter’s workshop. Aside from being strong-armed into making impermeable suit jackets for Wilson Fisk, the oddball tailor appears to have at least one other client who operates on the wrong side of the law.

During some of the scenes in Potter’s shop you may have spied two mechanical metal legs. These belong to none other than the age-old Daredevil foe Stick-Man. There are several bad guys in the comics who don the metallic stilts, and we’ve already met one of them on the show – Turk Barrett. Even though the low-level criminal is taken into police custody at the end of last season, there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing more of him in Season 2. While that might be enough for some to believe Stilt-Man will be making his MCU debut in the near future, the idea of a villain who stands on hydraulic stilts and towers over buildings seems pretty absurd and out-of-place in the gritty and grounded world of the Netflix original series.

Daredevil star Charlie Cox has gone on record saying he’d like to see Stilt-Man make an appearance on the show, so maybe the writers will figure out a way to bring the character into the fold. I wouldn’t bet on it though.
