She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has posed some interesting questions about where its many finale teases, and set-ups may lead in the future. While the series has been a less-than-serious entry in the MCU, there have been plenty of moments that lead themselves to future storylines, shows and movies. Of all these teases, one that has caused much debate is the inclusion of Daredevil in the final two episodes and where his relationship with Jennifer Walters could lead, such as a cross-over in Daredevil: Born Again.
Currently, there are only a few things known about Daredevil: Born Again. It will see Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio returning to their respective roles of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil, and Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin, respectively, the new MCU-based show will not be a continuation of the Netflix series but a definite “season 1,” and it will not see Daredevil being quite as comical as he was in his She-Hulk appearances. As for a possible relationship with Jennifer Walters, Tatiana Maslany told Variety that she doesn’t really know what is coming, but she certainly feels there is a deep connection between the characters. She said:

“I don’t know what Jen’s life looks like now, other than it’s opening up. They definitely have a very real connection. I’m curious how that manifests, whether it’s getting together every now and again and having fun, or if it buds into something more. But I don’t think either of them are thinking in terms of that. They’re at the beginning of something.”
Charlie Cox Has Hinted That Daredevil: Born Again Could Revisit Previous Storylines
Even since the cancelation of Netflix’s Marvel Defenders shows, there has been a lot of speculation over how and when those characters will be used again by Marvel Studios as part of the MCU. The first part of that question was firmly answered in 2021 when both Cox and D’Onofrio reprised their old roles in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Disney+ series Hawkeye, respectively. Now with the pair tipped to appear in spin-off show Echo, and Cox returning for a massive 18-part season of Daredevil: Born Again, the future is looking good for the former Netflix stars of the Marvel world. However, as Cox commented previously, fans shouldn’t expect this to simply pick up from where Daredevil ended on Netflix. He said:
“And, in a way, what’s great about that is that we potentially get to tell some of the stories over and over again in the same way that they do in the comics, you know. Every now and again, they start back at the beginning of Murdock’s journey as a little boy and they tell the whole origin story again. So maybe we’ll get to do that, I don’t know.”
For fans of Cox’s Daredevil, such an impressive commitment to the character of 18 episodes is something to get excited about. As more details emerge in the future, including whether there is any truth in rumors of other Defenders turning up in the series, Daredevil: Born Again is likely to challenge current Disney+ shows to be one of the biggest debuts on the platform.
