“They probably got married off camera”: Daredevil Writer Chip Zdarsky Believes Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock is Married to Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk Because He’s Catholic

Daredevil and She Hulk

Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law has revived Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in all his elements, and that’s discounting the Spider-Man: No Way Home appearance of the actor as merely Matt Murdock. The resurrection of this hero/vigilante was made extraordinary by his on-screen presence which not only harkened back to the era of Marvel x Netflix show’s street fighting days but added an element of classy goofiness that set off the character in his new arc right before his solo comeback.

Charlie Cox’s Daredevil Receives a New Plotline By Writer

In all his time portraying the comic character, the opinion of the popular culture crowd about Charlie Cox‘s representation of Daredevil has been unanimously loved. The story which began in 2015 during a Marvel and Netflix collaboration had a distinct voice of gritty bloodshed embedded in its fundamental narrative arc. And the fans were all about it as has been proved in the years to come.

However, one of those arcs that constitute the character of Daredevil is his faith in Catholicism. The religious factor has played an integral and almost transformative role in his behavioral development over the seasons, even providing an impetus to his suicidal phase in Season 3. And with such an ingrained ideology shaping and paving his every decision moving forward, it was only time before someone took a jab at it.

As per writer, Chip Zdarsky, due to the paradox presented by Daredevil’s character as a devout Catholic who is also presented as a characteristic womanizer, he would have to marry every woman before taking them to bed. Anything otherwise is counted as a sin in the Catholic faith and if Matt Murdock plays by the rules when it comes to religion, he has to follow every commandment and not simply the ones that suit his tragic backstory.

Matt Murdock’s romantic entanglements have been inspirational, to put it modestly. But the women in his life are always intricately connected to his impetus at different stages of his story — be it Claire Temple or Elektra or Karen Page. The comics had also infamously portrayed him with Black Widow at a certain point, but where the pages declared Karen Page as his greatest love, that role was given to Elektra in the live-action series adaptation.

Now with She-Hulk aka Jennifer Walters in the mix, writer Chip Zdarsky seems to have had enough and has set about to make everything right.

This new storyline, although not canon, is already making the rounds among Marvel’s Daredevil fans and it seems that though Zdarsky’s intentions may be comical and sarcastic, the law within the religious faith in fact makes everything he said valid and sanctionable.
