Here is an interesting spec.
With images that came out this week showing Daredevil in a black costume post Civil War, people were talking about Shadowland Daredevil being in the Marvel Universe.
He is there above Medusa. But a compelling argument has been made that DD may movie towards shadow land in the Daredevil TV show.
Shadowland was a Daredevil story line where DD becomes a kingpin and takes over the crime in Hells Kitchen to save it. The story begins in issue #1 of the Shadowland Mini-Series and crosses over in plus a series of one-shots.
So here is the info, this is from an editorial on Comicbook.com by comicsbornandbred:
Elektra is season 2
The first season of Daredevil is jam-packed with Easter eggs and references. But, the most notable allusions must be to that of Elektra Natchios, arguably Matt’s greatest love. Elektra is considerably important to the Daredevil mythos. In episode 10 titled, ‘Nelson v. Murdock’, there’s mention of a Greek Girl Matt dated while in law school. These are overt mentions of Elektra. Not only, does she hold overall importance to Daredevil as a character in his lore, but also in the “Shadowland” story. Elektra is a known member of The Hand, a Japanese ninja order that’s full on evil. Her death is one of the reasons Matt kills Bullseye during the story. But, more importantly, after she is resurrected, she tries to stop Matt from being corrupted by his involvement with The Hand. Elektra is an important piece of the puzzle but so is another Daredevil mainstay.
The appearance of Stick and the Black Hand
Stick’s presence in the seventh episode isn’t just to allude to the past, but also the future. He acts as a symbol of forewarning; a blind man who’s a bit of a herald, how cliché. More importantly, he makes multiple references to a coming WAR and his needs of a SOLDIER. tick’s presence in the seventh episode isn’t just to allude to the past, but also the future.

If you do your research, you will discover that Nobu is most likely Kagenobu Yoshioka, the founder of the Hand in the Marvel comics. When we see Nobu fighting Daredevil, he’s dressed in red and heavily resembling a member of The Hand. In “Shadowland”, his schemes include seizing a part of the Hells’ Kitchen for The Hand. In season one of Daredevil, Nobu can be seen discussing the control of numerous properties and land with Wilson Fisk. Nobu also vehemently mentions how Fisk owes promises to those he speaks for. Very hush- hush stuff. I’ve also discovered, from other sources, that the writing on the blueprints of the city that Nobu handles, translates to Black Sky. This only furthers the “Shadowland” connection.
I think Defenders will deal with Shadowland. Daredevil is already a scarred, wounded and fragile individual mentally. He’s easily seduced by violence and rage. Couple that with his skills and he not only makes for a dangerous hero, but villain as well. “Shadowland” makes Matt an adversary to his fellow heroes. He makes The Hand an army of justice he THINKS he can use correctly. “Shadowland” pushes a good man pushed past his limits. Having Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage battle it out against their trusted ally would be compelling.
And the Conclusion
Daredevil is a huge accomplishment. It has planted the seeds for several plots successfully. With season two coming soon; maybe we will discover if these allusions and references hold any validity
So, What do you think? Valid argument?
