Did you catch all of these Daredevil easter eggs as you raced through Marvel’s new Netflix show?
On Friday, Netflix released all 13 episodes of Daredevil. Viewers were then faced with that age-old problem: to binge-watch, or not to binge-watch?'
Whether you have raced all the way through the series by now, or you’re exerting a greater degree of self control that we managed, there are no Daredevil plot spoilers in this gallery. Instead, you’ll find many fun references to the broader Marvel Cinematic Universe that you may have missed in your Netflix-induced haze, including references to Iron Man, Thor, and the rest of the Avengers, a mini Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. crossover — and maybe even a nod to the events of The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Of course, if you’re really and truly desperate, there is more Daredevil available. Netflix’s Daredevil might be the first of five Marvel series created for the platform, but it isn’t the first time we have seen the man in the mask. Ben Affleck also took on the devil of Hell’s Kitchen in the 2003 film. But like we said, watching the movie is an act of the truly desperate, and we don’t encourage it.
