There is little doubt that Daredevil is the one character that people can't wait to see in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. After all, people have been waiting for Matt Murdock's return after he showed up in Spider-Man: No Way Home. However, it looks like Matt was always meant to be in the new Marvel Cinematic Universe series since its inception. Creator Jessica Gao has confirmed that they pitched the show with the full intent to bring in Daredevil even before Charlie Cox was set to join the MCU.

Jessica Gao recently spoke to Collider where she admitted that she really wanted to include Daredevil in She-Hulk even though it seemed impossible.

“Daredevil was a special case. Most of the time, what we do is mine the movies and the comics, and we pick a character we wanna use, then we think of what the best and funniest way is for us to use them, and then we ask Marvel, if we can have them. But Daredevil was a dream that we dared not dream," Gao said.

She continued, "We were like, 'Oh, there’s no way. That’s not even on the table.' It never even crossed our minds. And then, we got wind, one day, that not only was he on the table, but Charlie Cox would be coming back as Daredevil, so we immediately started thinking of ways to incorporate him into our show."

"If we only had a snowball’s chance in hell of getting him on our show, it was still a chance, and we were gonna take it,” Gao concluded.

We're glad that it all worked out for Gao and her team. Needless to say, we can't wait to see Daredevil in action again in the upcoming episodes of She-Hulk.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Episode 2 will premiere on August 25, 2022.
