Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk will have her courtroom drama series infused with the typical MCU comedy and super hero antics that Marvel fans expect. She-Hulk’s CGI may still concern fans, but the series teases that a certain super hero will return.

Gao originally thought that Daredevil showing up in She-Hulk would be impossible. She began writing the show before the character made his debut in Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) and way before she knew what Marvel planned to do with the character.

After learning that Charlie Cox’s Daredevil was greenlit to have a role in the MCU series, Gao was stunned. She admitted to Collider that she felt Marvel had pranked them and didn’t believe them at first:

“I don’t think we ever, in a million years, thought that we would be allowed to use them, because we didn’t know what the status was of the character and then, I can’t remember how, we got wind that he was coming back and that it was Charlie Cox, and we were like, ‘Wait, does that I mean we can use him? Are we allowed?’ And when they told us yeah, I mean, we couldn’t believe it, we thought we were being pranked.”

Cox was rumored to be in the series for a long time, but fans were unsure if Marvel would bring the character back. Now that She-Hulk has teased Murdock’s appearance, fans are more eager to see the upcoming series to see everyone’s favorite lawyer back in the MCU again.
