After appearing in three seasons of Netflix’s Daredevil, Charlie Cox made a surprise comeback in last year’s Spider-Man: No Way Home in a brief yet significant role to help Tom Holland’s Peter Parker with his messy legal battle. Since then, fans have been speculating on which Marvel project The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen appears next.
At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, it was ultimately confirmed that Daredevil would appear in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law. Still, it is unknown how Matt Murdock will fit into this series’ nine-episode run as She-Hulk makes her long-awaited MCU debut as a leading heroine.

At the tail-end of the trailer, Daredevil appeared alongside Jennifer Walters on a rooftop, with the character wearing an upgraded costume. Speaking with Deadline, Maslany teased that fans will be “really happy” about Cox’s Daredevil return, teasing that he’s a “really amazing actor:”
In an interview with MTV News (via She-Hulk Daily), Maslany was asked first if it took convincing on her part to say yes to Marvel. The MCU newcomer revealed that the script of the show’s pilot convinced her to come aboard, saying that the “writing was so weird and funny:”
It’s possible that a similar narrative trajectory will happen in the MCU, with both lawyers-turned-heroes being at odds first before eventually teaming up against a formidable threat. This dynamic allows the friendship between Walters and Murdock to flourish, setting up a partnership that could prove beneficial in the long run.
Given that She-Hulk is a “half-hour legal comedy,” there’s a chance that Murdock’s comedic side could also be showcased in the series. Not only that, but it’s also likely that fans will finally see the MCU’s Daredevil in action in the series due to the fact that he is suited up and ready to fight crime in the trailer.
All in all, Murdock’s appearance in the series would give a breath of fresh air to the character before diving into his darker roots in the already-confirmed Daredevil: Born Again series, which is still nearly two years from its release. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is set to premiere on Disney+ on Wednesday, August 17.
