“Daredevil” may have just dropped an Easter egg into the Netflix show’s third season, as has been pointed out by a Tweet (see below) shared on Feb. 17. The tweet, which carries what appears to be an unassuming image of a news article from the “New York Bulletin,” brings yet another Marvel superhero the Iron Fist (Finn Jones) to the fore. And that’s not all. The blurb in the lower left hand section of the page in the tweet reveals more intricate details.

On Feb. 16, the “Daredevil” Twitter handle shared a tweet carrying a fictional newspaper article, which was captioned “Look closely, you never know what you’ll see.” So as instinct would have it, fans began searching the newspaper cutout for Easter eggs, and here’s what they found.

“New Theories Shed Light on Lost City,” the article headline read. Now, it shouldn’t be too hard to guess for comic book readers as to what the words “Lost City” means. Hence, the connection is established, taking fans all the way to the world of Iron Fist.

The mysterious city of K’un L’un, where Danny Rand aka Iron Fist trained after a tragic accident left him orphaned and isolated away from humanity, is often referred to as the Lost City. It has also been said the Lost City is one of the Seven Capital Cities of Heaven, and appears on Earth once every 10 years. This ultimately brings readers to the conclusion that the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe is certainly aware of its existence, Comic Book reported.

The clip also carried another headline about the Punisher, right next to the “Lost City” news article. “Punisher Punished: Ruthless Vigilante Captured,” read the massive headline.

So, how’s the tweet connected to the Daredevil (Charlie Cox)? Easy. It’s the newspaper itself. Fans will know that the “New York Bulletin” is where Benjamin “Ben” Ulrich, the chain-smoking investigative journalist, wrote before the Kingpin murdered him in the first instalment of “Daredevil.”

Meanwhile, Netflix has announced the release date for Marvel’s Iron Fist and it’s scheduled to arrive next month. As a matter of fact, fans will have immense opportunity to get acquainted with Danny Rand and his mystical world of martial arts. Clearly, he will be joining the likes of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones with his own standalone series. Here is the synopsis in case you have missed it before.

“Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) mysteriously returns to New York City determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist.”

The “Iron Fist” season 1 cast include Jessica Henwick, David Wenham, Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, and Rosario Dawson among the main characters. The show is slated to release March 17 on Netflix US. An Australia release date hasn’t been announced yet.
