Netflix has done geeks everywhere few kindnesses as warmly received as resurrecting Marvel’s sadly stigmatized DAREDEVIL to nearly unanimous acclaim. Of course, the impression the saga of blind lawyer/nocturnal vigilante Matt Murdock has made on an audience that may or may not recall the tragically received 20th Century Fox adaptation is now undeniable: meet the upcoming first series of Funko POP! Vinyl DAREDEVIL Figurines.
Let it come as no surprise that they look fantastic. The debut run features civilian attorney at law Matt Murdock, sadistic crime lord Wilson Fisk and Murdock’s eventual fully realized “Daredevil” costume that debuted in the first-season finale, with no release date announced more specific than a 2016 window. Funko will also release a companion POP! Key chain honoring an in-costume Daredevil.
Here’s hoping Marvel fans greet the POP! Vinyl introduction as enthusiastically as they did the show’s premiere season. Given the hints and casting confirmations that the show’s personnel have opened up about already, we would love to see a post-Season 2 set featuring Elektra, the Punisher, and maybe a few other surprise denizens of Hell’s Kitchen we aren’t meant to meet until the sophomore run of episodes begins next year.
