She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s eighth episode has landed on Disney Plus. And, after a two month wait, Daredevil has finally shown up in Jennifer Walters’ standalone TV series.

For fans of Daredevil’s Netflix series, it’s been an even longer wait to see the blind superhero on the small screen once more. Technically, Daredevil has already appeared in a Marvel Studios production – Charlie Cox reprising his role as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home in December 2021. However, you have to go back to October 2018, and the third and final season of Daredevil on Netflix, for Cox’s last appearance as the iconic costumed vigilante.

Ever since rumors about Cox’s Murdock/Daredevil appearing in the MCU began swirling, fans have wondered whether the MCU’s iteration is the same character from Netflix’s Defenders-Verse. Well, She-Hulk episode 8 finally gave us a definitive answer, with the latest Marvel TV show all but confirming this is the same Daredevil – and the intriguing revelation that Netflix’s Marvel TV shows are officially canon in the MCU.
