Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight offers his review of Charlie Cox’s appearance as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen in She-Hulk episode 8.
Netflix’s Daredevil season 1 showrunner Steve DeKnight offers his thoughts on She-Hulk: Attorney At Law episode 8. Months after Charlie Cox reprised his role as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the actor returns to the MCU. This time, however, it’s on the small screen, as Daredevil’s long-awaited She-Hulk appearance finally happens.
For weeks, viewers awaited when Cox’s confirmed cameo on the Disney+ series will take place. Luckily, many think that it was worth all the wait as aside from appearing as his blind lawyer persona, Cox also suited up as the Devil from Hell’s Kitchen for the first time since he last played the character on Netflix’s Daredevil. Despite what appears to be a one-episode appearance on She-Hulk, the penultimate episode gave the actor a lot to do, especially with regard to his budding relationship with Jen Walters.
Admittedly, Marvel Studios have a lighter take on the street-level character which was expectedly going to be divisive, but DeKnight doesn’t seem to mind. As the showrunner of Daredevil season 1 on Netflix, many are looking forward to knowing his thoughts about Daredevil’s She-Hulk cameo. Luckily for them, the producer and screenwriter has indulged fans by sharing his review of the episode. Check his tweets above.
What’s Next For Daredevil In The MCU
For now, Jen and Matt’s encounter seems to be a one-time thing. It’s curious when their paths cross again, but it’s safe to say they will considering the MCU’s penchant for character crossovers. As for Daredevil, fans may not have to wait very long to see him back on Disney+. As officially announced during Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con 2022 panel, Cox is spearheading his own MCU show, Daredevil: Born Again which will also star Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin. No release date has been set for the project, but it might arrive as early as next year. Beyond that, however, Marvel Studios haven’t confirmed where else Matt can pop up in the MCU. Although producer Kevin Feige previously said that Daredevil will spearhead the street-level pocket of the franchise alongside Spider-Man.
Despite DeKnight’s review of Daredevil’s appearance on She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, there are still people who don’t like how his cameo was handled. While the screenwriter doesn’t have any issues with a lighter take on the character, naturally, there are those who miss Netflix’s darker approach as seen on Daredevil, resulting in a mixed response to this new Daredevil. In any case, it’s difficult to argue the idea that Cox was definitely charming as Matt in the series. Regardless of how Marvel Studios handle the character moving forward, hopefully, they’re always able to capitalize on that aspect of the hero.
