She-Hulk Episode 5 Drops a Major Daredevil Tease
The fifth episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law arrived on Disney+ on Thursday, and kept on placing its stamp on the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the process. The superhero history of Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany) has been loaded up with a great deal of twists, turns, and cameos — with the already affirmed appearance from Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox) arguably one of the most anticipated. While it sounds like the man unafraid will just appear in one episode of She-Hulk, the series’ latest episode brought the biggest tease yet of his looming arrival. Spoilers for Episode 5 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, “Mean, Green, and Straight Filled These Jeans”, beneath! Possibly look if you want to be aware!
Part of the episode sees Jen worried about getting new She-Hulk-sized clothes, outside of the suits she already wears to work. Nikki Ramos (Ginger Gonzaga) and Augustus “Pug” Pugliese (Josh Segarra) eventually get Jen associated with Luke Jacobson (Griffin Matthews), a fashion designer who specializes in dress for superheroes. At the finish of the episode, Jen visits Luke to take a stab at her new clothes — and as she’s stuck in a changing room, Luke walks away and picks up a hat enclose his office. As Luke complains about client confidentiality, we see that the hat box contains, in all honesty, Daredevil’s yellow helmet.
This provides the biggest tease yet of Matt’s arrival on the show, outside of what’s already been seen in trailers and teasers. (It also seemingly confirms that Matt’s suit in She-Hulk isn’t the same as his previous one from the Netflix show, unless Matt just carried his old costume to Luke to have it repaired or enhanced in some way.)
When will Daredevil appear in She-Hulk?
While Marvel hasn’t affirmed exactly which episode Cox’s Daredevil will make his introduction, the appearance of his helmet at the finish of Episode 5 proves that he’s not too far off for the remaining four episodes. And as She-Hulk head author Jessica Gao previously revealed, Cox’s cameo will be funny accurate in some surprising ways.
“He has such adoration and love for that character. Obviously the character meant so a lot to him, yet he also came exceptionally game to play around,” Gao said in a chat with Collider. “He was totally up for more interesting banter and having this great dynamic with Jen and She-Hulk.”
“It really feels like the character from the comics. It was so fun because he really does squeeze into the show so impeccably,” the essayist added. “They’re the two lawyers, and they’re both superheroes. Who else can say that they have that in like manner? It was just extremely fun contemplating what their dynamics would be, based on the personalities of these two characters.”
