Re: Daredevil reboot: official discussion thread - Part 3
Well Whiplash in Iron Man II wasn't exactly a fan favourite either, but they went with him. Marvel could make him a compelling villain. He has also fought Ghost Rider and DD at the same time, so if Marvel acquired Ghost Rider, he could be a potential opponent. And he's also fought the Avengers as well, so that fits in with their already established universe. And he also acquired his gloves from AIM, who have already been set up.
Also, the new Death Stalker encountered Cross Bones and was part of Villains for Hire (the villainous counterpart to Heroes For Hire).
So I think Death Stalker does fit in pretty well with the established MCU.
