Charlie Cox's Daredevil made his MCU appearance recently in the eighth episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. His guest role was greeted with delight by a lot of fans as they were glad to see him in a lighter tone, but there were also some who were baffled that they made the character lean into comedic.
Now, in a recent interview with Digital Spy, Cox opened up about his appearance in the recent MCU series where he admitted that he had a hunch that the comedic take on the character may divide some fans although he ended up enjoying it and pointed out that it's not his own show.
"And then there's stuff like the walk of shame, 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'," he said.
"The good thing about doing it on something like She-Hulk is, it's not Daredevil's show. 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."
The actor also added, "In this world, Matt's in LA, and he lets his hair down a little bit. He's just having fun. He's killing it in the courtroom. You know, he has a fling with a really beautiful and charismatic lawyer. And then they get to do some superhero stuff."
Cox has this something to say about the fans who weren't enthusiastic about his character's comedic tone on his appearance in the show: "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."
While Cox's guest appearance was well-received, there's always going to be a detractor, especially with its departure from the usual tone that we see with the character. However, it doesn't mean that it will be the permanent tone and he will definitely resort to his usual dramatic fare in the next projects.
It is exciting to see what Marvel Studios has in store for Daredevil: Born Again, which will be an 18-episode series, and give us an extended look at Matt Murdock now that he is officially part of the MCU.
Daredevil: Born Again is slated for release in 2024 on Disney+. You can check more details about it here.
