Daredevil doesn't get anywhere near enough love, in my humble opinion. The excellent Netflix series might have helped catapult The Man Without Fear to new audiences, but that was unceremoniously thrown away like old gum after its third - and best - season.
I need for there to be some great Daredevil resurgence. I need Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock in the MCU fighting alongside Tom Holland's Spider-Man. I need a fourth season of Dardevil with the same cast and creative team who produced the last season. I need an open-world Daredevil video game that can do for the crimefighting lawyer what Marvel's Spider-Man did for the webhead.
I don't know if any of these things will ever happen, but I know at least that I'm not alone in wanting them. Actor Troy Baker is one of the more vocal fans who believes that Daredevil should get his own video game. The Last Of Us star has been saying for some time that he wants to portray Matt Murdock in such a game, which sounds like an excellent fit to me.
Just recently, Baker took to Twitter to once again express his interest in playing the character, not missing an opportunity to have some fun with fans along the way. A Twitter user by the name of Joe Fayant dared to dream of a Daredevil game set in the same universe as Insomniac's Spider-Man. He also floated the idea of Baker as Matt Murdock. It wasn't long until Baker himself saw this and retweeted it with a fairly coy emoji, no doubt relishing the chance to tease fans everywhere with the possibility that it could one day happen.
This isn't the first time that Baker has been active in trying to help make a Daredevil game a reality. It was just last year that the actor directly called on Marvel Games boss Bill Rosemann to make it happen. Rosemann clarified at that time nothing was in the works, but perhaps Baker's campaign, and the overwhelmingly positive reaction to it sparked talks between the two?
For now, at least, a Daredevil video game remains nothing more than a fanboy's dream. But as long as we have people like Baker willing to keep the dream alive, anything can happen.
