Daredevil, The Punisher set for Hot Toys figures
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to struggle in terms of incorporating TV events or characters into the films, Hot Toys has no such problem. Soon, we’ll be able to put our Daredevil and The Punisher figures alongside our Captain America, Thor and Iron Man figures in a cohesive figure universe.
Hot Toys revealed it will be releasing figures based on the popular Netflix Daredevil series starring Charlie Cox. Season 2 was pretty epic what with the impressive story arcs involving The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung).
Fittingly, the first two releases will be the main stars of Season 2 — Daredevil and The Punisher. Branching out into the TV realm is great news for MCU/Hot Toys collectors.
I’m hoping this paves the way for eventual Agents of SHIELD figures. I’d love to add a Daisy, Ward, Mack and May to my SHIELD roster of Nick Fury, Maria Hill and Coulson.
Here’s Hot Toys’ official announcement. From the sound of it we’ll see these figures any week now.
Justice is blind.
We are thrilled to officially announce today, Hot Toys’ highly detailed and amazing collectibles based on the highly-popular Netflix Original series Marvel’s Daredevil are coming real soon!
Daredevil fans stay tuned. It’s time to get ready for the Man Without Fear and the deadly vigilante Punisher!

I’m pretty excited with this as even if the Netflix characters don’t make it into the massive Avengers: Infinity War, I can still set them up to join The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange and Black Panther against Thanos.
Kingpin and Elektra clearly have to be the next two options, but I’d love to see a Stick and Nobu figure as well. And if this extends through the Netflix series, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Kilgrave seem like pretty likely additions to the mix as well.
Who all do you want to see as part of this line?
