PS5 Daredevil Marvel Game Cover Makes Us Want A Real Entry Even More

With whisperings of a planned Daredevil video game making the rounds, one fan artist has put together a mock-up of the hypothetical title's box art.

PS5 Daredevil Marvel Game Cover Makes Us Want A Real Entry Even More

With rumors surrounding a possible game being developed for the cropping up in the past few days, one fan’s depiction of the hypothetical title’s box art makes the prospect all the more appealing. Just yesterday, Marvel Games Vice President Bill Rosemann hinted at the desire to make a next-gen video game starring the famed Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, alongside leaked speculation that such a title will be the next one to come from the comic book and movie juggernaut's fledgling series of video games.

It wouldn’t be the first time a video game centered on blind-attorney-by-day and vigilante-crime-fighter-by-night Matt Murdock was attempted, as title for the PlayStation 2 was leaked back in 2016, around the same time the well-received but tragically short-lived Netflix Daredevil series had entered its second season. While fans had previously joked that a game starring the Man Without Fear would consist purely of a solid black screen, reception to the unfinished gameplay was positive enough to leave them wishing that a developer would give the concept another chance. This is likely the reason why Rosemann’s Daredevil-related tease has taken the fanbase by storm, as well as sparking some artwork of what the game’s box art would look like.

Internet fan artist Apexform posted a mock-up of the case for this hypothetical Daredevil game on their Twitter page earlier this afternoon, as part of a month-long series of projects they’ve dubbed “The 30 Days of Heroes Art Challenge.” It features a purple PS5 case, with the Netflix depiction of Daredevil on the cover and an Insomniac Games logo in the lower right-hand corner indicating them as the developer. Check it out below:

The use of Insomniac as the developer of this potential Daredevil title is quite fitting, as the studio’s title for the PlayStation 4 received plenty of praise when it was released in 2018, becoming the highest-selling superhero-themed video game in US history. In fact, there has been a bit of a comic book game renaissance going on over these past few years, with the Square Enix-developed set to hit stores this September and rumors circulating that WB Games is looking to announce a reboot to their highly-successful series sometime later this year – not to mention figures like director Cory Barlog expressing their dream superhero projects.

Although the hypothetical Daredevil video game likely won’t feature Charlie Cox’s portrayal of Matt Murdock and his gritty alter-ego, Apexform’s fan-based box art remains visually striking, especially in how the unorthodox purple PlayStation 5 label blends with the artwork’s blood-red logo, suit, and coloring. Furthermore, its simple design brings the previously mentioned Spider-Man game to mind, creating a nice sense of brand cohesion. Should the rumored Daredevil title for the PlayStation 5 come to fruition, this fan rendering would serve as a great basis for the game’s official box art, although most fans will probably just be happy to get the chance to take on the scum of the streets as one of Marvel’s toughest heroes.

Given Lucasfilm's expanded definition of what it means to be a Skywalker, it's possible the first Jedi - the Prime Jedi - was a Skywalker.

The Prime Jedi - the original founder of the Jedi Order in  - was technically a Skywalker, based on Lucasfilm's definition of the name.  ended with Rey grafting herself into the prophecy of the Chosen One by declaring herself a Skywalker. And while the scene left a lot to be desired in terms of execution, in thematic terms, it's effective and provides a conclusive ending to the Skywalker saga.

The idea to make Rey a Skywalker was planned back in 2014, ahead of the release of . "I like the idea that she's going to be our Skywalker, but she's not a Skywalker," Lucasfilm's Pablo Hidalgo noted in a meeting of the Story Group. "Then, for our purposes, 'the Skywalker' is really a metaphor. It doesn't have to be something that's directly connected to blood." It's important to stress the Story Group are treating the 'Skywalker' as something subtly different to the Chosen One - a specific person who was born of the Force. A Skywalker, however, appears to simply be someone who serves as an agent of balance. Anakin and Luke together restored balance to the Force when they defeated the Emperor in , and Rey has done the same when she destroyed Palpatine in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

This fundamentally reinterprets what it means to be a Skywalker - and using this broader definition, it looks as though the Prime Jedi himself was technically the Skywalker of his generation. The Prime Jedi was subtly introduced in , when Rey meditated next to a mural of him. Crucially, the Prime Jedi was represented as a servant of balance, rather than exclusively dedicated to the light side of the Force. The mural gave equal prominence to both light and dark, with the Prime Jedi representing the darkness in the light, and the light in the darkness. Essentially, he embodied the classic 'yin and yang' philosophy.

This fits with the Lucasfilm Story Group's expanded definition of a "Skywalker" as a servant of balance. Significantly, Cavan Scott's recent audiobook Dooku: Jedi Lost suggested the first Jedi did indeed see balance as a distinct aspect of the Force, and were dedicated to serving it. It featured an old Jedi mantra: "We call upon the three - light, dark, and balance true. One is no greater than the others. Together, they unite, restore, center, and renew. We walk into the light, acknowledge the dark, and find balance within ourselves. The Force is strong."

According to , balance should be seen as a fleeting thing. It includes a quote ascribed to an unknown Force cult called the Ascendant of Mau, and it's the closest Star Wars has ever come to defining the term:

"The moment between breaths

Is the balance of the Force.

Between life and death,

Rest and action,

Serenity and passion,

Hope and despair."

According to this, balance is a fleeting thing, as ephemeral as "the moment between breaths." Little wonder every generation needs its own Skywalker to serve and fight for balance. The Jedi, it seems, were originally founded to serve that purpose, and hopefully, Rey's new Jedi Order will perform the same task going forward.
