She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is making waves ahead of its August 18 debut, many of those emanating from Charlie Cox’s return as the MCU’s Daredevil. But some of the currents are bringing a great deal of confusion thanks to the still-unclear situation regarding the canon status of Netflix’s Daredevil show that ran from 2015 to 2018.
That canon status recently came into question after the first full footage of Daredevil came into the spotlight through She-Hulk’s promotional tour, which looks different from the Netflix show thanks to the suit’s new blast of yellow. This led to passionate discourse amongst Marvel fans, many convinced that it confirmed that the Netflix shows are MCU canon, while others are adamant that it drives them away from the official continuity.
With so little material from any of the former Netflix characters in the surefire canon MCU thus far, this conversation is one that might not get a resolution for the foreseeable future. And thanks to a recent chat with She-Hulk’s leading behind-the-scenes staff over this series’ Daredevil inclusion, it’s not about to get any clearer.
She-Hulk Crew on Daredevil’s Canon Status
During an interview with ComicBook, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law executive producer/director Kat Coiro dove into whether Netflix’s Daredevil show is canon, following Matt Murdock’s appearances in the MCU.
When asked if She-Hulk is a direct continuation of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil story from the first three seasons of Netflix’s Daredevil, Coiro admitted that she wasn’t sure if she could speak on that topic, but she shared that it’s “very conscious” and “very much planned” with regard to Daredevil’s past and future.
Coiro’s comments seem to indicate that Marvel is still waiting to confirm whether the Defenders Saga is officially canon with the MCU. And with both sides of the debate boasting a fair amount of ammo to prove their arguments, it only grows more frustrating for fans who just want to know what the final answer to that question is.
