Jennifer Walters has finally met her match in Matt Murdock… a character who Marvel fans have been eager to see in the series. In this week’s episode 8 of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Charlie Cox reprised his role of the blind attorney.
“Knowing that Charlie was taking this character on again and that we got to reintroduce him through this show, the dynamic between him and Jen is so, so special,” Tatiana Maslany explains to Marvel.com.
Head writer Jessica Gao was thrilled to have Murdock included in the show. “It just made so much sense that he would be on this show because both he and Jen are lawyers by day, super heroes outside of the office, even though Jen is doing it reluctantly. What better character to kind of show how this struggle she’s having is possible?”
In the episode, Murdock swoops in to help defend Luke Jacobson after Jen has to take him to court over a faulty suit. Jen is immediately stricken by Matt’s charm and legal swagger but can’t help but be annoyed that he showed her up. When the two then find themselves at the same bar, Jen is extra annoyed that he takes the high road and sends over a peace offering via an appletini. Matt can’t help but note that Jen is “in a unique position to do some real good. The way I see it, Jen Walters can use the law when society fails. And She-Hulk can help people when the law fails.” It’s this kind of smooth-talking that quickly wins Jen over.
Later in the episode, the two attorneys can’t deny their chemistry and hook up back at Jen’s apartment. New episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law are every Wednesday on Disney +.
