“It’s a flirty version of him”: Charlie Cox Teases His Daredevil Will Be Slightly Flirtatious in She-Hulk Ahead of Episode 5 Appearance

Charlie Cox Teases His Daredevil Will Be Slightly Flirtatious in She-Hulk Ahead of Episode 5 Appearance

Daredevil is all set to mark his appearance in the MCU once again with a cameo in She-Hulk. Last time he was spotted in Spider-Man: No Way Home where he helped Peter Parker fight his legal battle. As he is slated to appear again in the ongoing Disney+ series, Charlie Cox spoke about how his character will have a major shift in the MCU. He revealed that the theme of his character will be toned down and will be far lighter than the Netflix version.

Daredevil’s appearance in She-Hulk’s universe sporting the comic-accurate Yellow and Red Suit had already sparked excitement among the fans. But now with the news of the tonal shift, the audience seems to have some worries regarding his portrayal in the MCU.

It is a completely different Daredevil

Although every one of us remembers Matt Murdock aka Daredevil to be a deadly merciless superhero from his action in the Netflix series, MCU’s a whole different affair. MCU is often criticized for having a very clean and strawberry-Esque approach which is the main reason the fans are worried.

Speaking to Variety, Charlie Cox revealed that his role in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will show a different version of his character. According to him, this is mainly due to the contrasting tone of his former show and the She-Hulk series.

“What was really fun about being in She-Hulk, for this one episode is that obviously the tone of that show is radically different. And in order for my character to be… appropriate for me to be in that show”

Charlie Cox confessed that this version of Matt Murdock is going to be flirty and fun-loving:

“I had to adapt a little bit my Matt Murdock, so that he was in a place in his life where he’s having fun and life is good and he’s a bit cheeky and a bit flirty, and it’s just, tonally, slightly different. And it was a bit of an experiment, but it was really enjoyable and I really had a good time.”

The arrival of Matt Murdock in the Tatiana Maslany starred series is widely anticipated by the fans. Some rumors also suggest that Jennifer Walters may have a romantic relationship with Daredevil. Undoubtedly it will be a new experience as we will spot the character in a totally different avatar. Just hope it’s a good transition and a good experience to watch a flirtatious Matt Murdock for the first time.

Will the tonal shift affect the solo Daredevil series as well?

Following She-Hulk and Echo, Daredevil will get his full solo series titled Daredevil: Born Again. As the speculations are high from the series, the actor was asked if the tonal transformation would affect his solo series as well. To this, he replied that to some extent it will involve what we called the classic MCU approach but not completely:

“I don’t think that would work, Not over the course of our entire season. Not with this character. I don’t think it’s necessarily truthful enough to the source material for it to really work.”

This marked a sigh of relief for the fans. It will be commendable if this series takes a detour from the usual MCU route as promised. A series such as Daredevil looks best in its usual raw and gritty theme.
