In the latest episode of the series, Matt Murdock appears at first representing Luke Jacobson, against whom there were allegations of making malfunctioned suits.

Proceeding toward the end, the episode even showed a romantic angle between Matt Murdock and Jennifer Walters.

The return of Daredevil rejoiced many fans who enjoyed the new attributes of one-liners and light-heartedness in his character. Even many of them claimed that this appearance of Daredevil was very comic-accurate. But here a significant amount of the audience also expressed their distaste toward the show.

Is the comic accuracy important?

Although various fans are finding it pleasing to watch a comic-accurate Daredevil, there has been also allegations from some audiences that this is a weak point to defend the show. They agree with the hardcore fans that the character was also light-hearted in comics and not always serious and a gritty soul as shown in the Netflix version. But they didn’t fail to point out that in various instances these fans also ignored when some iconic MCU characters were made comic inaccurate.

The dark tone of the show in the Netflix version was one of the pivotal reasons why Daredevil became such an iconic pop culture character. According to the fans who don’t support the sudden change in the character, it doesn’t make any sense to nerf a character who’s already a well-established dark-themed superhero etched in everyone’s mind.

Mixed Reactions received from the fans

We have collected some reactions from the fans that express how mixed of a reception the Tatiana Maslany show has created.

While the Internet is clearly divided on the appearance of Matt Murdock, it should be remembered that this was She-Hulk’s show and thus the tone might have been set according to that. If the reports are to be believed the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again series will have a perfect blend of serious as well as MCU-styled moments. And it will be really looked upon if intelligent writing can also make Disney+’s Daredevil series as memorable as the Netflix one.
