Daredevil’s MCU Return Was Well Worth the Wait
It was an appearance that had been teased since the very first She/Hulk trailer was shown, and following his presence in episode 8, Daredevil’s MCU return was well worth the wait.
In the massive pantheon of Marvel heroes, there are few who have connected with audiences in the way that Matt Murdock has.
A hero who has as unique a backstory as any character that has ever been crafted by the company, Murdock is a lawyer turned superhero, who is blind, but equipped with a sort of radar hearing that gives him a masterful understanding of his surroundings.
Whether it is his history in the comic book universe or his adaptation to his very own Netflix series, Daredevil was a character that boasted some of hte most dedicated fans of any comic book creation.
With the cancellation of that very Netflix series, however, there was plenty of speculation that the character would never see his return to the MCU, and that he would be rebooted in some way; which would have been a true shame considering how great he had already been adopted.
That ended up not being the case, as one of the earliest trailers for She/Hulk showed that Murdock would be back; with Phase Four already confirming that Murdock was played by Charlie Cox, and retained from the Netflix project.
But still, it felt like forever till fans finally got to see The Man Without Fear return, and following his appearance in She/Hulk’s episode 8, one thing is absolutely certain; Daredevil’s return was well worth the wait.
The version that appeared in She/Hulk was so very different than the version that we had last seen in the Netflix project which will certainly be a development that irks some.
But the differences were only positive for us, as they represented a hero who felt more like the Daredevil that we had read in the comics.
This version was a more realized incarnation of Daredevil, with Matt Murdock who was more at peace with his calling and his mission, not weighted down with the burden of uncovering who he was or what he was meant for.
The MAtt Murodck that arrived in She/Hulk was the truest version of Daredevil that we’ve ever seen, and it is the perfect version to now take into his very own MCU series.
