How She-Hulk Will Present A Different Side Of Charlie Cox's Daredevil

The overwhelming hold that Marvel Studios has on the release schedule can make its lineup of movies and streaming shows feel overwhelming, but they have this innate ability to keep piquing my interest in some way. With "Ms. Marvel" ending only a few weeks ago, the folks at Marvel already have another television show ready to fill the void with "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law."

The series stars Emmy-winning "Orphan Black" actress Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, a distinguished lawyer who has to hone her new abilities as She-Hulk after acquiring the gamma genes that made her cousin Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) into the Hulk. The trailer out of Comic-Con gives the impression that Jessica is going to be the Marvel Cinematic Universe's lawyer for superheroes moving forward.

But if you remember, the MCU already has another superhero lawyer on the docket in Charlie Cox's Daredevil. The blind attorney operates under the name of Matt Murdock during the day and acts as Daredevil, the man without fear, at night. Fans of the canceled Netflix series (*raises hand*) are already excited to see the agile advocate of justice return in the Disney+ series "Echo," along with the upcoming revival series "Daredevil: Born Again," set to arrive in Spring 2024.

As teased in a shot from the trailer, She-Hulk and the Devil of Hell's Kitchen are going to be sharing the screen next — and Matt won't necessarily be the devil we know. "The tone of our show is so different [from Netflix's 'Daredevil']," Tatiana Maslany said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour (via TVLine). She also teased that Cox "does some great work" in the show, and "to see his character in the tone of 'She-Hulk' is really fun."

Superhero lawyer V. other superhero lawyer

Anyone following the Marvel train would have seen Cox make his first official MCU appearance outside of the Netflix shows in that brief scene of "Spider-Man: No Way Home," where he inadvertently demonstrates his abilities in front of the web-slinger. Spoiled as it might have been by the rumors of his appearance, seeing Cox return was pretty exciting (even if the lackluster crowd he saw it with didn't seem to think so).

Also speaking at the TCA press tour, head writer Jessica Gao expressed how excited she was to bring Cox into the foray of "She-Hulk," citing his chemistry with Maslany: "It's really, really fun seeing them together — like, it really has the vibe of like an old Howard Hawks movie."

Cox can bring out the sly charm when he wants to in "Daredevil," so if Gao is insinuating that he's going to adopt the sensibilities of Cary Grant alongside Maslany's Rosalind Russell, then I'm so onboard for this pairing. I have to imagine they're largely on the same side of the coin, so I don't see them fighting one another, but Gao also teased that watching them "go toe-to-toe and match wits is something that people are gonna love."

I'm willing to bet Daredevil's inclusion will be small, but meaningful. It'd be a pretty welcome surprise if he's more than a guest spot. But for the moment, it seems to be Marvel's way of satiating "Daredevil" fans until they start rolling out the promotional bits for 'Echo" and "Born Again" down the line.

"She-Hulk: Attorney At Law" will be streaming through Disney+ on Thursdays starting August 18, 2022.
