She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was vastly different to any other Marvel Studios movie or TV show, with a comedic tone that wasn't what a lot of fans anticipated. That had an impact on the heroes and villains who appeared in the series, of course, with Abomination, Wong, and Daredevil all portrayed in a slightly different light than what we've come to expect.
The Man Without Fear romanced Jennifer Walters and ended up doing the "walk of shame" - in costume - after spending the night with his fellow lawyer. This was met with a surprising amount of backlash, but what did Charlie Cox think?
"There's stuff like the walk of shame," the actor acknowledged in an interview with Digital Spy, "where you're like, 'I don't know. This could go two ways. This could be something that the fans really enjoy, and it could be something that feels like it goes against the nature of what they love about the character and the tone of the piece.'"
"The good thing about doing it on something like She-Hulk is, it's not Daredevil's show," Cox continued. "It was my job as the actor to come onto another person's show and embrace the tone, whilst staying as true to the character as I possibly could."
He'd go on to note that while his role in this series "tonally felt very different from everything I've done as that character," he was excited to explore a new side of Daredevil. "There are a series of Daredevil comics where the tone is much lighter, and he is much more kind of silly and goofy than perhaps we've done much of previously with this character."
As for the backlash he and the series have received from fans, including the #NotMyDaredevil hashtag, Cox added, "You can't please all the people all the time. If She-Hulk’s not your thing, then don’t watch it. Watch something else."
Cox will return as the Man Without Fear in 2024's Daredevil: Born Again, and that series is expected to be quite a bit darker. In fact, we expect it to boast a TV-MA rating, making it the most adult MCU TV series to date on Disney+. With that in mind, we're sure fans disappointed with She-Hulk: Attorney at Law's take on 'ol Hornhead will feel a lot happier a couple of years from now.
Beyond that, Daredevil is expected to return in Spider-Man 4, though that hasn't been confirmed yet.
