Netflix's "Daredevil" Teases Possible Absorbing Man Appearance

The official Twitter account for Netflix and Marvel Television's "Daredevil" series released a new teaser Friday teasing involvement from Carl "Crusher" Creel -- better known in comics lore as the Absorbing Man.

The teaser takes the form of a mock boxing poster advertising a fight between Creel and "Battlin'" Jack Murdock, the father of the show's titular hero Matt Mudock/Daredevil. While that alone isn't surprising -- the character has a boxing background in comics, as well -- the fact that Creel appeared earlier this season on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." raises an eyebrow. On that series, the character was played by 36-year-old actor Brian Patrick Wade, throwing into question how the Marvel TV take on Creel could have boxed against Daredevil's father, presumably in decades past.

Of course, there's always a possible explanation: the Creel on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" could be the son of the character teases in the "Daredevil" promo, or perhaps his powers have caused him to age slowly. Or maybe a teaser is just a teaser in this instance, with no intended impact on continuity.

All 13 episodes of "Marvel's Daredevil" are set to debut April 10 on Netflix.
