DAREDEVIL Actor Charlie Cox Calls SHE-HULK's Lighter Take On His Character A "Fun Experiment"

The more fun-loving take on Daredevil we met in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has proven to be divisive, but Charlie Cox relished the opportunity to show a lighter side of the Man Without Fear...

After returning as Matt Murdock for a brief scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Charlie Cox suited-up as Daredevil again for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law - but this was a very different take on the Man Without Fear to the one fans remembered from his Netflix days.

Though the character we spent time with over three seasons of the now defunct series wasn't completely dour, he wasn't exactly what you'd call a bundle of joy, so we definitely got to see a more light-hearted side of the Hell's Kitchen vigilante through his interactions with the Emerald Amazon.

This take on the character has proven to be somewhat divisive, but Cox revealed that he jumped at the opportunity to explore new facets of Daredevil's personality during an interview with Variety.

"We’ve never really had an opportunity to explore the levity that there is in the comics. Obviously Daredevil at his core works better as a show that’s geared toward a more mature audience, but even life that is very serious has comedic moments in it," said the actor. "I felt like this was a really good opportunity to put Daredevil in a world where tonally there is a lot more fun to be had, it’s a lot more lighthearted, tongue in cheek. It was a really great experiment, both for me and for the character, to see how we fit into that world."

Does this mean the more fun-loving Daredevil will be sticking around for the upcoming Born Again Disney+ series? That could prove to be just a little tonally inconsistent given the subject matter (of the source material, at least), but Cox's comments could be taken as an indication that She-Hulk's version of the hero was a one-off.

"It was just a question of freeing up a little bit and allowing myself as an actor to go toe-to-toe with Tatiana and make sure that Daredevil didn’t become the butt of the joke because he’s overly serious, to make sure he had his charisma, charm and wits. Whether that will play into what we do next year with Daredevil: Born Again, I don’t know, but it was certainly a fun experiment."

How did you guys feel about the Daredevil we met in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law? Do you think a lighter take on the character worked for that show, at least?
