Raise a glass to the true hero of DAREDEVIL. No, I’m not talking about Punisher, though he’s pretty cool too. Nor am I talking about Karen Page, who is also pretty cool. I’m talking about the man himself, Foggy Nelson, played by MIGHTY DUCKS Bash Brother himself Elden Henson. The man may not have any superpowers, and he may not have Charlie Cox’s chiseled chin, but man does he got some smarts.

Foggy was a character that could have been an utter annoyance in DAREDEVIL — the man whose sole purpose is to fill time while Matt Murdock pounds the pavement — but they sure as heck gave him a lot of interesting stuff to do. In many ways, his appeal also comes in his everyman nature, in that he could be any one of us set in this superhero-laden world. 

Well, lucky fans, it sounds like Mr. Nelson will return, and not just in DAREDEVIL Season 3, but in the epic crossover series THE DEFENDERS, which will bring together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist to take on one massive threat. 

It’s unknown how involved Foggy will be in the story at this point. There is always a chance he’ll have as much to do in THE DEFENDERS as Pepper Potts had in THE AVENGERS (read: not a lot), but one could hope that in this world of epic crossovers that there could be some room for the normal folk to make a difference as well.

What do you think about Foggy making into THE DEFENDERS? Do you have as much affinity for the character as I obviously do? Let us know in the comments down below!
