“You can’t please all the people”: Daredevil Star Charlie Cox Predicted Fans Would Hate His She-Hulk Role, Asks Haters to Stay Away From Show

Charlie Cox, who has been playing Daredevil since 2015, made his MCU debut with the 2022 film Spider-Man: No Way Home. Fans were excited to see one of their favorite Marvel characters finally making his way into the MCU. However, the excitement soon faded as the character made his next MCU appearance in the Disney+ show, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. While the show faced criticism since its release, fans were really upset with how the studio portrayed Daredevil in the Disney+ series.

Charlie Cox Was Anxious About Daredevil’s Portrayal in She-Hulk

In his recent interview with Digital Spy, Charlie Cox defended the light-hearted version of Daredevil. While fans did not like how the makers presented the crime-fighting hero in the Disney+ series, they specifically hated the ‘walk of shame’ scene.

One of the episodes of She-Hulk portrays Matt Murdock leaving Jennifer Walters’ home with his boots in hand, after spending a night with her. While some fans loved the episode, others were not very impressed because Daredevil was way too different from what they saw in the Netflix show.

Charlie Cox who played the character in both series finally addressed the issue saying that he was also not sure about the tone of the character in the Disney+ show.

He shared, “There are things that you do when you’re playing a superhero. There are scenes that you read, and you go, ‘The fans are going to love this.” However, he was anxious about the walk of shame, as it was not the nature of the character.

“I don’t know. This could go two ways. This could be something that the fans really enjoy, and it could be something that feels like it goes against the nature of what they love about the character and the tone of the piece’.”

The actor further mentioned that it was his job as an actor to suit the tone of the show he was featured in, and so he did. He claimed that Daredevil could also be goofy and funny, and he did his best to make that happen.

Playing Daredevil in She-Hulk Felt Very Different

The Daredevil star shared in his interview, that playing the same character he has been portraying for years, felt very different in She-Hulk. However, he was relieved that it happened on a show like She-Hulk, which already had a comic tone to it.

He claimed that it could have been worse if they tried something like this in the Netflix show. “The good thing about doing it on something like She-Hulk is, it’s not Daredevil’s show,” the Stardust star shared.

He further said, “In this world, Matt’s in LA, and he lets his hair down a little bit. He’s just having fun.” The Kin star explained that the character has a “much more kind of silly and goofy” side in comics, which has been hardly portrayed in Netflix’s Daredevil.

Addressing the criticism towards the portrayal of the character he said, “You can’t please all the people all the time. If She-Hulk’s not your thing, then don’t watch it. Watch something else.”

Charlie Cox is set to reprise his role as Daredevil in the upcoming Disney+ series, Daredevil: Born Again. The studio has not revealed the official release date of the show, but it is expected to release during Spring 2024.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is available to stream on Disney+.
