Netflix and Marvel have a pretty solid group of shows that have become very popular with fans. For the most part, they stand alone and don’t include many links to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Every now and then, there will be mention of The Avengers. There was a reference to the Battle of New York-otherwise known as The Incident.
One viewer has been paying very close attention, and he’s letting us know that there are some we may have missed. In a line from the first season of Daredevil, there is a line that is very familiar.
D_Cracker on Reddit pointed out a scene where Karen Page, Mutt Murdock and Foggy Nelson are talking about the times they would go to the street to “crack names and collect skulls.”
Does that ring a bell yet?
In Avengers: Infinity War, when Peter Parker, Doctor Strange and Tony Stark run into the Guardians of the Galaxy, Mantis takes the same phrase in its common form and switches it the exact same way. She says that the three of them “kick names and take (expletive).”
Although it very well could be a coincidence, it would be a stretch to have this phrase unknowingly used in the exact same opposite way by two different people, in the same universe. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are responsible for the Mantis line, so I guess they are the only ones who know.
Season 3 of Daredevil season 3 will hit Netflix on October 19th, 2018.
The series stars Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Joanne Whaley, Wilson Bethel, and Vincent D’Onofrio.
