She-Hulk Writer Praises Charlie Cox’s ‘Reverence and Love’ for Daredevil

It turns out that Charlie Cox loves Daredevil as much as fans of the character. Tuesday, She-Hulk Editor Jessica Gao praised Cox’s performance on the show, not just from a superhero and lawyer perspective, but for how deeply the actor cared about the man without. fear while it was happening.

“He has such reverence and love for this character. Clearly the character meant so much to him, but he also came to play very much,” Gao said in a chat with Collider. “He was totally up for funnier banter and having this fun dynamic with Jen and She-Hulk.”

Gao even went so far as to say Cox’s performance as the character is the comic book version that comes to life.

“He really looks like the character from the comics. It was so much fun because he fits right into the show,” the writer added. “They’re both lawyers and superheroes. Who else can say they have that in common? It was just a lot of fun to think about what their dynamic would be, based on the personalities of these two. characters.”

The writer reiterated that she and her writer’s room never thought they’d be able to use the character on the show until Marvel Studios executives confirmed the actor was ready to reprise the character.

“We got wind one day that not only was he on the table, but that Charlie Cox would be returning as Daredevil, so we immediately started thinking about ways to fit him into our show,” Gao concluded. . “If we only had one hell of a chance to get him on our show, it was still a chance, and we were going to take it.”
