Marvel Studios might be gearing up for a major legal battle.
In She-Hulk, that is. The upcoming Disney Plus series focuses on Jennifer Walters, cousin of Bruce Banner, who is also a Hulk… and a lawyer.
But now it’s being rumored that Walters won’t be the only superpowered lawyer on the show. YouTuber Grace Randolph is spreading a rumor that Charlie Cox will be returning as attorney Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, in the Disney Plus series.
but he’ll appear in costume as #Daredevil
not just as Matt Murdock like in #SpiderManNoWayHome

Now, the rumor has been floating around for months that Cox will make an appearance in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home as Matt Murdock (reportedly defending Peter Parker), but not suited up as Daredevil.
Speaking of the Daredevil suit, the word is that Cox will rock a new (and likely more comic book accurate) suit in the MCU.
So will this version of Daredevil be the same Daredevil as the Hulu version? Likely not, as the Hulu Marvel series did deviate from the MCU timeline somewhat, despite referencing The Battle of New York early on.
Reusing a popular actor from another Marvel movie “timeline” for the MCU has been done before. J.K. Simmons reprised his role as a different version of J. Jonah Jameson from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films. It’s likely that the MCU Daredevil (and possibly Kingpin) will follow the same path.
With Loki expanding upon the multiverse concept, it’s possible that there are many “variants” of Marvel characters from other timelines that just happen to look exactly like their counterparts from the MCU.
At least that’s how Disney could reconcile every Marvel movie and TV show ever existing simultaneously. Even the long-forgotten Roger Corben Fantastic Four movie.
Tatiana Maslany will star as Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk, joined by Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner / Hulk.
