…who knows? Apparently someone besides Matt Murdock, although it’s not clear what this means or even if there’s anything earth-shattering at the core of these hints that Marvel has been making.
I’m in Berlin with my mom over the weekend and spending a lot of time away from the computer. Yes, in the middle of Comic-Con International in San Diego. My bad. Anyway, you can imagine my surprise when this rumor was forwarded to me in the comments of my last post. Naturally, I had to try to get more info on it (even though it meant annoying my mom and traveling buddy by pulling out my iPhone in the middle of the KaDeWe department store).
What I learned is that since it was first hinted in the Mondo Marvel panel that Nova(!) would be the new Man Without Fear after Shadowland, other mentions have been made at the X-men panel (where Gambit was allegedly the new Man Without Fear) as well as at the Avengers panel (where an image was shown of Falcon).
An Image of the character in question was shown at each panel, but none of them are available online. So, basically, no one – except the people at Marvel – know much of anything at this point or even what to do with this information. I’m about to hit the town in a few minutes, but will try to follow up on this story as best I can. If anyone learns anything more about this, please post a comment.
In other non-Daredevil news: I will launch another redesign of this site early next week. This has nothing to do with my being restless or terribly unhappy with how The Other Murdock Papers looks now, but everything to do with the recent controversy in the WordPress community where it’s come to my (and many others’) attention that the Thesis theme framework, which this site is built on, is in violation of the WordPress GPL (by not being adhering to the same license). No one is forcing me to switch to a different theme, but I’m doing it anyway since it feels like the right thing to do. So, behind the scenes I’m customizing another theme that I will be ready to reveal early next week. It will still feel like The Other Murdock Papers (same fonts and color scheme), but might have some nice new features. See you then!
