In an interview with Lifehacker, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s head writer Jessica Gao got a chance to share her excitement about bringing Daredevil back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Charlie Cox had a brief appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, he’ll finally don his iconic suit in the upcoming Disney+ series. As it turns out, however, she shares that she had a lot of freedom in how to include the character with one exception.
Usually how they do it is they kind of let us propose what we want to do rather than give us guidelines. When they first told us that [Daredevil] was a possibility we just couldn’t believe it. And as we were coming up with story and what we wanted him to do, the fact that they kept not saying no was shocking to us.Jessica Gao
She goes on to highlight though that there was one thing she had no control over and that was the way he was going to look in the series. The trailers revealed he had his Netflix red suit but with a new touch of yellow that pays tribute to his original design. It seems that was Marvel Studios’ idea.
The one thing that I didn’t have control of was the suit. They knew exactly what they wanted the suit to look like.Jessica Gao
Most of Marvel Studios’ team are comic nerds and it does seem like the chance of introducing the character in a more comedic light was the perfect way to also bring in some of the goofier aspects of his character. We’ll likely see his classic colors return in the near future, but it is great that they are combining these two worlds. Here’s hoping the wait for our first full look at him in action isn’t too far away. Now we only need to see the D on his chest.
