Charlie Cox’s Matthew Murdock Finally Returned to the MCU as Daredevil in She-Hulkbringing with it new changes and a handful of interesting questions about its future.
The character appeared in the series She-Hulk before their own new series, which is slated for 2024. With that, Matt Murdock and Jennifer Walters have the opportunity to face each other as lawyers and superheroes in episode 8 of She-Hulk.
When superhero stylist Luke Jacobsen is accused of making a defective superhero costume for the “hero” known as Leapfrog in episode 8 of She-Hulk, Jennifer Walters has no choice but to represent GLK&H’s all-important customer, who is suing her for damages. Despite the new outfits Luke recently made for Jen, including the new superhero costume from She-Hulk.
As such, the teaser of Daredevil’s new helmet in episode 5 of She-Hulk was finally rewarded. With the revelation that Matt Murdock is representing Luke in court against Jennifer Walters. What follows is a dynamic adventure that culminates in an exciting partnership (and maybe more) for Daredevil and She-Hulk.
After She-Hulk and Daredevil take down Leapfrog, who kidnapped Luke in the hopes he’d make him a new supersuit, Daredevil fans no doubt have a lot of questions about Murdock. Considering the various changes and provocations about its status current as a watchman.
So understand what changed for Netflix’s Daredevil in She-Hulk.
As She-Hulk change Daredevil’s powers?
Not realizing at first that Daredevil was a hero (or his secret identity as Matt Murdock), She-Hulk’s battle with the hero is unlike any fight Murdock has been in before.
While Daredevil displays the same array of abilities he possesses in his Netflix series, he certainly looks faster and more agile in She-Hulk. All this while fighting a legitimate Hulk (before they both realize they’re on the same side).
While Netflix’s various Marvel series were very grounded with an abundance of practical effects, it seems that Marvel Studios wanted to give Daredevil a truly dynamic debut in the MCU. In this way, he uses special effects and CGI to show how capable Matt Murdock is thanks to his training and heightened senses.
Why Daredevil Looks So Different Now
One of the biggest changes is that Daredevil is now wearing a new outfit in She-Hulk. He swapped his red and black look, adding yellow to his arms and helmet (courtesy of Luke Jacobsen).
It is for this reason that Matt came from New York and Hell’s Kitchen to represent Luke in Los Angeles. Since the designer had already made some costumes for Daredevil, hence the new helmet shown in episode 5 of She-Hulk.
Jennifer Walters even makes a joke about ketchup and mustard when referring to the color scheme. But the new costume pays homage to Daredevil’s first costume in the original Marvel Comics.
demolisher of She-Hulk it’s lighter (and that’s good)
It should also be noted that Daredevil has a lighter personality than in his Netflix series. That way, feeling more free to make some jokes in the episode. Murdock even smiles and laughs more than once.
That said, Daredevil still has time to think and attack from the darkness in She-Hulk. So it looks like Marvel Studios is already building a solid balance for the character as he becomes more integrated into the MCU.
Is Daredevil more powerful now?
Getting his own mini-version of a hallway scene from the Netflix series Daredevil, the Man Without Fear takes down a staggering number of Leapfrog’s henchmen quite easily in She-Hulk. Although the episode’s half-hour length can be considered the main reason why the scene is shortened.
With the underlying need to keep the story moving, it can be explained that Daredevil has become even stronger and more skilled. Assuming his Netflix series is canon, Matt has had years to become even more experienced as a vigilante in Hell’s Kitchen.
Can Matt Murdock’s Tone Change Work?
While it makes sense that Daredevil would need to fit the tone of She-Hulk, which largely framed the series as a comedy, the new tone for Charlie Cox’s character works independently. He certainly seems to have the right balance between being lighthearted and serious by typical MCU standards.
While it’s easy to imagine Murdock will likely be on the more serious side in his upcoming series Daredevil: Born Againthe light humor and slightly more relaxed version of the character seen in She-Hulk work very well, helping to define Matt Murdock who seems to be in a much more peaceful and happy era of his life.
Is the Daredevil Netflix series still canon?
Considering the fact that Netflix’s Daredevil theme plays when Matt tells Jen that he’s Daredevil, it seems like the three seasons of the streaming service streaming rival, starring Charlie Cox’s Murdock, are canon in the MCU. There are other teases in the episode, such as Matthew confirming he has his own practice. pro bono in New York.
Likewise, Murdock’s statements in court about protecting superhero identities and how some heroes keep them secret to protect those they love suggest that characters like Foggy Nelson and Karen Page are also a part of his life in Hell’s Kitchen.
Either way, it will be very exciting to see where Daredevil goes after his return to the MCU via She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
