‘Stop Whining, Daredevil Can Be Both Dark and Funny’: Marvel Fans Defend MCU’s Daredevil After She-Hulk Writer Confirms He Won’t Be as Dark as the Netflix Series

Fans have been not able to keep calm ever since the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 when it was announced that the titular character of Matt Murdock will be returning as Daredevil in Daredevil: Born Again. Daredevil is a series with a heavy set tone and a dark and serious atmosphere that the fans love. But according to recent news, Daredevil: Born Again may be a little on the lighter shade of the attorney’s life.

People worried about the lighter side of Daredevil

With the recent news about the cameo of the blind attorney in Marvel’s upcoming She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the fans have been wondering about how deep Marvel and Disney are prepared to dive into the complexity and the darkness that the character of Daredevil possesses. Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock had been seen in the year 2015 when Daredevil was released following a 3 season run. But the current environment would require the entertainment giants to tone it down a little.

There are shows like The Boys that don’t hold back. But there are several shows that have to hold back for the age range of the audience that watches the series/movie. Daredevil’s character is one of them.

A lighter side of Matt Murdock was seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home for a brief moment as an attorney hired to help Peter Parker. The cameo was created to form a humourous situation and to hype the fans up for something bigger. Another cameo that will use the same humourous situation will be used in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law for which, Matt Murdock will have to show his lighter side.

While most people agree that it is okay for Daredevil to crack jokes, there are also some people that feel that humor is not in-line with the character. Daredevil will be seen in the upcoming Hawkeye spin-off Echo.

Echo is reported for a release date in Summer 2023 while Daredevil: Born Again will likely release in the early months of 2024.
