daredevil in She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk. Although Matt Murdock, played by Charlie Cox, has already officially introduced himself during Spiderman: No Way Homethis is alter ego was not found. It happened in the eighth episode of the series, when he had to intervene to protect one of his clients. This is the most anticipated cameo in the fictional story, and arguably the most respected character in the story right now.
Conducting the Case of Daredevil inside She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk includes several questions. From the confirmation of his cameo to the subsequent uncertainty regarding the episode he will appear in, with clues that have spurred fans and critics to anticipate the process. This is part of the games offered by the Marvel Cinematic Universe based on expectation, interest, and surprise..
However, there are pitfalls and issues here as well. Some of these may directly affect the show, even undermine its aspirations, while others serve as food for thought about how this type of content is presented in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We already know: “With great power comes great responsibility.”
daredevil before She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk
The series with Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters was discussed and he kept joking that it could be a story full of episodes. The offer was clear: viewers would see various key, or at least important, creatures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and beyond. In this installment, after confirming that Daredevil would be one of them, the others took second place.
Rate, in case She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk, made sense: to generate specific situations that could be resolved in each chapter. Make something more out of them. Unlike other stories that take more time to consider situations and scenarios, this series focuses on something else: the comedy raises many questions and serves as a bridge to various topics.
For that last reason, it’s convenient for those it touches on not to classify a Disney+ production as a cameo series and little more. Though the effectiveness with which it handles certain situations can be questioned. The appearance of Daredevil has served to reinforce some of the quest and critique offered by history. The duality of the protagonist. His difficulty in making connections. Macho looks towards her (and them). Sex as a space of pleasure. In a way, Matt Murdock’s arrival served as a counterbalance to all of Jennifer Walters’ negative experiences up to that point.
Risk from hype with respect to Daredevil is that such readings are lost. Due to the fact that it was announced much earlier, it was clearly talked about long before the eighth episode, its discursive, symbolic impact may not reach its maximum potential for the audience.
delay and waiting
After confirming before the series’ premiere that Daredevil would be one of the characters to be in it, Matt Murdock’s discussion moved on to other aspects. One of them had to do with an adaptation that would be presented in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after what was presented in the series, which was Netflix, left the demands high.
During the fifth episode She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk a sample of the new costume that Daredevil would use could be seen. It will be marked in yellow and red. A tribute to his history in the comics. After that wink, there was a feeling that the sixth chapter of the series would be focused on its presentation. That did not happen. Another trailer has surfaced revealing the character. He did not appear in the seventh chapter either. That image of the helmet on the box was still latent and, perhaps, could also be interpreted as something that gradually moved away and became part of history.
Again, critics and audiences approached She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk dialogue with the questions and suggestions of the series and, at the same time, the expectation of a minor character in the story. This scenario left open the question: did it diminish the power of the protagonist? What’s interesting, from a positive perspective, is that much of this response was due to previous anticipation prior to the creation of the series itself.
Leak in ET
Before the premiere of the eighth series She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk, ET shared the first scene in which Matt Murdock will appear in his costume. Then, the said character, anticipated, desired, expected, reached part of the audience like a loose clip, almost spoilers. Among the various readings that could be made of this fact, one possible is that it is both a strategy for the distribution of the series and its content, as well as contempt for the viewer.
If it’s not considered humiliating, after going through the series with the goal of seeing the character, discovering him during the episode, and accompanying Jennifer Walters at the same time, he introduces himself as trailer a plus. After all the prelude towards Daredevil, perhaps the most convenient thing would be to leave the audience to develop the character in a natural way, without further subterfuge or incentives, to further enhance the spectacle (and each of them’s special relationship with Matt). Murdoch).
And the audience?
Can this be understood as some kind of manipulation of the audience? Yes. One that was based on a promise that eclipsed history She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk and the conditioned part of its development. Does it make sense that the series is sustained and tense because of the secondary? No. There is a nuance to this answer, given that Matt Murdock will be one of the key characters in Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was more than just a character, thanks to his comic book tradition and the work presented by Netflix in series format.
However, the management of its image moments before the series premiere, development and its subsequent presentation raises several uncomfortable questions. Something that doesn’t detract from his weight, his official introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe makes up the best chapter of the story. She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk until now. But also revelation.
