'Daredevil' Season 3 Easter Eggs Hints at the Spider-Man Crossover We Need
The division between Marvel’s movies and Marvel’s TV shows has never been more clear. But Reddit has still found an Easter egg that potentially references Spider-Man in the background of Episode 12 of Daredevil Season 3.
Light spoilers for Daredevil Season 3 ahead.
On Sunday, Reddit user AliGaijin shared a photo from Episode 12 of Daredevil Season 3, streaming now on Netflix. The image shows Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) in a rather familiar boxing gym. Behind her is a poster advertising a fight between a “Parker” and a “Morales.”
While the two fighters look nothing like either Peter Parker or Miles Morales, the pairing of those two names in Marvel’s New York City is an uncanny reference to the two biggest Spider-Men in Marvel history.
Peter Parker needs no introduction as the first Spider-Man, but Miles Morales is a more recent addition to Marvel canon. Debuting in 2011 in the pages of Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales is a half-black, half-Latino teenager from Brooklyn who is bit by a genetically engineered spider that grants him powers not unlike Spider-Man. In time, Miles also becomes “Spider-Man,” and finds himself in several major crossover titles that pits him against the likes of Captain America and Captain Marvel.

Hmm, that’s a little dark. Computer, enhance!
While a cute Easter egg, it’s unmistakable that some members of the cast of Daredevil are expressing interest in having a genuine Spider-Man crossover. On October 15, actor Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, tweeted “Yes” to a fan’s inquiry over his interest in playing the role in a scene with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
He later responded to another fan, saying: “It is greatly appreciated. All of us who do @Daredevil @netflix @Marvel want it to be the best we can do. Truly.”
While Miles has yet to debut in live-action, he will be voiced by Shameik Moore in the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
