Daredevil’s surprising return to the MCU in Spider-Man: No Way Home (even though it shows us the legal side of the character) has been one of the most interesting and well-received comebacks in recent MCU history. However, his no-show in the recent She-Hulk: Attorney at Law TV Series has raised some questions.
Drew Goddard’s Netflix version of Matt Murdock has been hailed as one of the greatest comics to live-action adaptations ever, even earning a cult following ever since the show got binned after just three seasons. Now he’s finally slated to return with a new suit in the She-Hulk TV series, which he still hasn’t shown up for despite the show nearing the end of its first season

Daredevil Didn’t Show Up In She-Hulk And Fans Are Annoyed
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, despite receiving a ton of hate from Marvel fans, was and is still a show with high expectations. It’s mostly because of the fact that it features a lot of other MCU characters, like Bruce Banner and Abomination.
Daredevil was meant to be one of the characters in the MCU that was bound to get a cameo in the upcoming She-Hulk episodes. But Charlie Cox‘s character was still nowhere to be seen in the seventh episode of the TV series.
Fans got understandably frustrated that their favorite TV show character didn’t receive his promised screen-time. Twitter documents the frustration as it just keeps building up with only nine episodes left, the show is even meant to conclude by October 13 too! –

However, there are still two episodes left that are yet to air for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. So Daredevil fans, hold on for a little bit more!
Some Daredevil Fans, However, Are Loving His No Show!
It would be pretty disappointing to have your favorite character hyped up to appear in a TV series and not even get a glimpse of him at all. But in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s case, it also depends on whether or not certain Daredevil fans want him in the TV show at all.
The She-Hulk TV show has been under constant fire from Marvel fans and superhero geeks alike ever since its release in August. Most of the complaints about the show include the lack of seriousness in the TV show, the unnecessary and mundane jokes, and the toning down of somewhat much darker characters too.
One of the most remarkable features of Netflix’s Daredevil was the intensity with which the show portrayed the grittiness of the world that Matt Murdock lives in, and fans of the character are scratching their heads as to how such a superhero would fit into the tone of a TV show like She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
Since Charlie Cox’s character still hasn’t appeared in the TV show, there’s visibly been a lot of outrage for him not showing up. However, a section of fans are completely fine with Matt Murdock not showing up at all –
On the contrary; the longer you keep Daredevil away from this disaster, the happier I'll be. https://t.co/afDGLzeOzt

They do not want him in it-
Save Matt Murdock from that cesspool of a show

That’s a funny statement, we have a reboot coming up! –
In fact, I would have been 100% ok with them killing him off. It will spare us from having his character ruined.

There’s a consensus here-
Agreed why ruin a great character by throwing him under the bus into she-hulk to try boost the lagging ratings.

That’s actually not a bad swap-
Jessica Jones would be more fitting. Leave Daredevil out of this!

It’s quite interesting to see that there are some divided opinions on Murdock’s non-appearance, which only goes on to show how much fans hate She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is currently available for streaming on Disney+.
