Daredevil’s return and into the MCU

Debuting in 2015 on Netflix, Daredevil remained the most successful production in the Defenders Saga but was eventually canceled in 2018. Disappointed by the cancellation, fans campaigned to see the character return, and their wish was fulfilled with his cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The Defenders content was later moved into Disney+ and the character is currently set to debut in the MCU with an 18-episode series titled Daredevil: Born Again. Despite already returning, he is also set to cameo in Echo and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.

Why is Daredevil yellow?

After Daredevil’s appearance in She-Hulk was revealed, fans were very much disappointed by the change, believing the character looked goofy and weird. Defending the decision, showrunner Jessica Gao stated in an interview with Collider:

“He has such reverence and love for that character. It’s clear that the character meant so much to him, but he also came very game to play around. He was totally up for more funny banter and having this fun dynamic with Jen and She-Hulk. It really feels like the character from the comics.”
