With the new Marvel's Punisher trailer hitting this morning, all of the Netflix attention may be on Frank Castle, but let's not forget Marvel's Daredevil. This week an image appeared on social media showing a funeral card for Matt Murdock with a quote from the Bible, Proverb 25:26
Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
The interpretation of this particular passage ties into Proverbs 10:11 that speaks of the mouth of a righteous man being a well of life, inspiring the weary through the just and kindly counsel it offers. But if that righteous man yields to the pressures put upon him by the wicked, and he gives up his principles through fear or favor, he can no longer give counsel from a pure heart. and he becomes like a fountain that is fouled by the feet of the cattle that are drinking from it.
The funeral card is in English, then switches to braille then back to English.
Daredevil (Charlie Cox) most recently appeared in the 8-part Marvel's The Defenders series where the character was presumed dead at the end, yet we find him in a bed at a convent being taken care of by nurses in a shot almost identical to one from the Born Again storyline by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. The upcoming third season of Marvel's Daredevil is expected to loosely follow the Born Again story which in the comics involved Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Will Simpson aka Nuke (Wil Traval).
Either way, it looks like we are being led to believe that Matt has been corrupted by the forces he has been fighting against and is no longer the hero he once was. Either that or he got way to close to some cows.
