Is Daredevil a Canon with the MCU?

At the same time director and executive producer of the series, Kat Coiro also discussed if Netflix Daredevil is a canon saying, “I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about it, but it’s very conscious and it’s very much planned. That’s all I can say.”


Jessica Gao also said that She-Hulk being a legal comedy will mainly focus on the humorous side of these characters. She said, “They get to take a little bit of comedy vacation.”

With Cairo’s comment, it seems like Marvel is still not sure if it wants to confirm whether the Defenders is a canon with the MCU. Fans are just eager to know if the Netflix shows are canon with the MCU or not.

These shows ended almost three years before these characters started showing making appearances in the MCU. This leaves many plot holes that will need answers if they are canon. It may be even hard to do so when there is no mention of these shows anywhere in the MCU. 

Fans are just waiting for Marvel to decide where these shows stand in the MCU and if they are canon at all.

With multiple cameos in the series, fans have started pointing out that instead of focusing on the main character, the makers are promoting the series with a list of cameos in the series.

It became even when the studio released a clip of all cameos in the series. The series has been a topic of discussion since its first trailer release. And whether the show does focus on She-Hulk or not will be revealed with its premiere on August 18 on Disney+.
