Developer Insomniac Games brings back Daredevil reference to Marvel's Spider-Man 2 after its unexpected disappearance, fanning the flames of fan speculation about the vigilante lawyer's involvement in the franchise.

Spider-Man 2 Game Restores Mysteriously Disappeared Daredevil Reference

Days after director Bryan Intihar ignited curiosity with cryptic remarks, game developer Insomniac Games has reinstated a Daredevil quotation in Marvel's Spider-Man 2, adding to the sense of mystery surrounding the fate of the in-game Daredevil.

For some context, Marvel's debut Spider-Man game featured a commemorative plaque placed outside of Nelson and Murdock's law office, which essentially serves as Daredevil's regular work-office - a setting comfortably tucked away in Hell's Kitchen. However, in the sequel's interpretation of the city of New York, this plaque had mysteriously disappeared. Instead, a notice of eviction was seen on the company's front door, suggesting a possible relocation or unintended demise of the business.

The game's director, Bryan Intihar, when probed about this mysterious change, had playfully advised eager fans to "stay tuned." His suspense-building response not only drove fans curiosity but also triggered a wave of speculations about the potential gaming trajectory of the vigilante lawyer, Daredevil.

In an unexpected twist of events, Insomniac Games, in its latest update on November 1, reinstated the plaque with the familiar inscription: "Nelson and Murdock - Attorneys At Law." The eviction notice was likewise removed during the routine bug-fix update. So, was the initial disappearance of the plaque and the eviction notice just an accidental bug that has been rectified, or is it something more?

The well-detailed graphic layout of an interior scene that references 'The Hand' - a notorious villainous organization that first appears in the Daredevil comics - has escalated fans' excitement and hopes about Daredevil's future in the game series.

Insomniac Games' progressive construction of their shared superhero universe was evident when they confirmed that the forthcoming Wolverine game would inhabit the same universe as Marvel's Spider-Man. Teases of a potent third instalment and a possible Venom offshoot suggest that Daredevil could potentially resurface in any of these New York-based projects in future.

An unissued Daredevil: Man Without Fear game from 2004 came back into the limelight accompanied with brand new footage. Unfortunately, the same luck did not reign on the next Daredevil show, as Marvel parted ways with all engaged writers and directors. The renewed dedication to expanding the superheroic universe by Insomniac Games, however, hints that fans could get to see more of Daredevil in the Spider-Man 2 game sooner than expected.
