Jessica Gao Discusses Daredevil-Centric ‘She-Hulk’ Episode

Head writer Jessica Gao talked about what it was like incorporating Daredevil into last week’s episode of ‘She-Hulk.’

The moment a large swath of Marvel fans had been waiting for finally arrived last week: Frog-Man made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. In addition, the penultimate episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law saw Charlie Cox return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as both halves of Matthew Murdock and Daredevil. The episode has thus far been met with overall rave reviews for Daredevil’s appearance and how much he fits in the world of She-Hulk. And this is certainly a concept that was prevalent as far back as the writer’s room for the series as confirmed by Jessica Gao.

It just made so much sense that he would be on this show because both he and Jen are lawyers by day, Super Heroes outside of the office, even though Jen is doing it reluctantly. What better character to kind of show how this struggle she’s having is possible?

This episode especially did a strong job of creating a strong dynamic between the two characters in each of the different settings they intertwine. A large portion of credit belongs to the episode’s writer Cody Ziglar for successfully translating Matthew Murdock, the spirit of the Netflix adaptation of the character, and the aesthetic of Mark Waid’s comic run. And the notion of comic accuracy was taken into account according to Gao.

When we first heard that we could use Daredevil and we started trying to break this episode, during that first conversation, at one point, Cody (Ziglar) pulled a Daredevil comic out of his backpack. It was somehow already opened to the page he was talking about and was waving it around and pointing at the panels that he was referring to. So this episode was written by somebody with a lot of Daredevil love.

Charlie Cox is confirmed to be returning in Daredevil: Born Again in the Spring of 2024 (with reports that production will begin in New York City early next year). The eight-episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is now streaming on Disney+ with the finale scheduled to release on October 13.
