She-Hulk: Attorney at Law showrunner Jessica Gao and director Kat Coiro continued to tease Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in the upcoming series.
Charlie Cox is back in a big way as Daredevil, who is set to appear in numerous upcoming Marvel Studios projects. But this is also a first for Marvel Studios since Cox first portrayed the character in a Netflix series that might not be considered canon to the main MCU. There’s been no clear answer on this, but it seems Cox will be playing a new version of the character. With Daredevil set to appear in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law next, here’s what series director Kat Coiro told ComicBook.com:
“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 has also recently shared that Charlie Cox’s Daredevil will be lighter compared to how we’ve seen him in the past, and it appears he won’t be the only one portrayed in a more comedic manner according to the showrunner:
“We were like, ‘This is our version,’ and it’s true for any character. Like every character that we’ve used that existed in the MCU, it gets to be a little bit different on our show because you see them in very dramatic roles like these big high pressure, high stakes kind of situations but on our show because our show is more of a slice of life, they can kinda take a break from that. They get to take a little bit of a comedy vacation. Of course, after our show, they get to go back to save the world, saving the universe, very serious, intense story but on our show, they get to just take a little break and when the universe is not at stake like, ‘What’s going on with you?’ They get a chance to really explore like a different part of their character because not everyone can be at a 10 saving the world every minute of every day.”
Have No Fear…
Over the years, many MCU characters have been handed off from one creator to the next. For example, Joss Whedon’s Captain America differed from what the Russo Brothers did with him. The same goes for how the Russos handled Spider-Man compared to the solo films directed by Jon Watts. It’s no different from the comics, and it’s safe to say Daredevil’s interpretation in She-Hulk will be slightly different from what we get in the Born Again series.
Here is the synopsis for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law:
“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also appens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk.”
The series stars Tatiana Maslany, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, Benedict Wong, Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass, and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premieres on August 18th on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming series, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
