In fact, the showrunner of Daredevil himself commented on Matt Murdock’s role in She-Hulk, and how he was happy with the way he had been portrayed in it. And fans are acknowledging him for the same on social media.

Steven DeKnight, Daredevil’s showrunner, claimed to “love” his character in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. 

He even took it to Twitter to share his positive appraisal of the same. “Huge props to the She-Hulk team for taking what we did with Daredevil and running with it. Loved every minute!” He also expressed his gratitude toward the show’s producer, Jessica Gao, for “taking such fantastic care of the character.”

It looks like fans aren’t the only ones swooning over the sparks that went off between Matt and Jen, for DeKnight is fangirling about them just as much. “I could not ship Matt Murdock and Jennifer Walters any harder if I tried,” he exclaimed.

The producer of She-Hulk had made it clear to the audience from the very start about certain aspects of Daredevil’s character in the show. One such important aspect, as put by Jessica Gao, was the fact that the show was going to adopt a slightly new and different take on Matt Murdock.

Some fans, however, are leaving their assent on the topic but with a twist of humor here and a twirl of sarcasm there. Although it could very much mean that it’s a subtle jab instead, from the looks of it, it seems to be in good faith.

A lot of people are also pumped up about the new show, Daredevil: Born Again which is to be released in 2024, and are coming up with all kinds of fascinating theories about Matt Murdock in the upcoming show.

After being the subject of sharp rebuke a while back, the show seems to have picked up its pace and has managed to impress its audience, thereby proving to be a great series.
