The Greatest Marvel Easter Egg of All Time is in Plain Sight in the Final Episode of Daredevil
I just finished marathoning the new Daredevil TV show and, while it was an amazing show, there is one thing in particular that I am still freaking out about. I’m writing this blog post at 2 a.m. because I just can’t wait until the morning to write this. I saw this Easter Egg with my own eyes and it almost threw me off the entire final episode. It’s right there, in plain sight; they weren’t even trying to hide it – and I love them even more for that.
Of course, I’m not going to spoil it for everyone without a little warning first.
So take a moment. Make sure you’re sitting down. In fact, make sure you watch all 13 episodes of Daredevil first, because you don’t want to ruin the surprise for yourself. Seriously, it was a great show, from beginning to end, and I’ll have a deeper, better review next week. But this one Easter Egg, this tiny, insignificant bit of Marvel trivia, has elevated my entire life to new heights. This has to be seen to be believed.
Join me after the jump for the greatest Marvel Easter Egg of all time, from the final episode of Daredevil.
Are you ready? BEHOLD!!
Stilt-Man!! Those are Stilt-Man’s legs! The real, actual legs! That is an honest-to-God Stilt-Man Easter Egg in Daredevil!
It’s not schematics. It’s not a random appearance by Wilbur Day. It’s not even a joke about stilts. Those are Stilt-Man’s actual legs! Somebody built that prop! Somebody had the brilliant idea to put that into the scene! I’m on Cloud Nine here, people.
What a time to be alive.
