Marvel’s new Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law recently teased the return of Daredevil in its San Diego Comic-Con ’22 trailer. Even though the resurrection of Daredevil had been made public by Disney+ after its acquisition of Marvel, the entry of Charlie Cox’s beloved character was not known to make its entry via She-Hulk.
A cameo of Daredevil, although in the identity of Matthew Murdock, appeared earlier in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Charlie Cox’s famous rendition has since been made canon in the MCU. The actor returns to the Disney+ series in his iconic role, and the extent of his involvement in the show has just been made public by series lead, Tatiana Maslany.
Daredevil Returns In Major Role in Disney+ Series She-Hulk
Tatiana Maslany, the talented actress, will play Jennifer Walters, an attorney representing the Superhero Division at her law firm where her identity as the She-Hulk is received with much appreciation and has helped her gain her celebrity status. Although new to the whole gig, Maslany’s rising superhero is quick to learn and strike back, as a lawyer and as She-Hulk.
However, every apprentice needs a mentor, and just as She-Hulk has her cousin to teach her about the ways of the superhero life, so does Matt Murdock influence her as a lawyer. In a recent interview, Tatiana Maslany said, “I don’t want to spoil what [Matt Murdock’s] involvement is, because it was surprising, and it continued to surprise me… what he brought out in Jen and what she brought out in him.”
What the Daredevil Cameo Means For Mainstream MCU
Charlie Cox brought to life the dark and bloody character in the Marvel x Netflix collaboration of Daredevil in more ways than one. His performance as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen was nothing short of enigmatic. Having risen to the occasion and playing out his most resolute arc yet in Season 3 of the series, the character has transformed from a fledgling fighter to a feared and respected superhero.
With his induction into the MCU via Happy Hogan, Charlie Cox may become a mainstay character serving as a lawyer for the ones whose actions are not definable under the code of American laws. Although the She-Hulk trailer now establishes that there will be a law division that looks into superhero activities, there might yet be the need for one of the heroes to walk within the courtroom walls as much as there is a need for them to be out on the streets fighting crime. And that sounds exactly like what Daredevil was born to do.
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law premieres on Disney+ on 17 August 2022.
