A Daredevil Character Will Appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Daredevil_RedemptionRecently I’ve begun seeing people write blog posts and make comments under the belief that the Marvel TV and Movie universes are separate. They absolutely are not, and everything that happens in the Marvel Studios movies, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Netflix series takes place in the same shared universe.

Now a character from the Daredevil comics will be making an appearance in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel has revealed that Drea de Matteo will be playing Karla Faye Gideon in the ABC series. The character originally appeared in the Daredevil: Redemption mini series. In Marvel’s announcement they call her “Gifted” (with a capital G), which means she has powers. The original character in the comic was just a normal human, so this is a change.

It’s also unknown if the character will appear at all in the Netflix Daredevil series. But with her being established in Agents, it’s possible she could show up in a second season of Daredevil.
