She-Hulk: Attorney at Law might bring Daredevil and Hulk together onscreen, but the Disney+ show won’t be their very first team-up on TV.
She-Hulk: Lawyer promises Daredevil’s return to the MCU, as well as Hulk’s final appearance, but it won’t be the first time the two characters have appeared together for a tag team on a live-action television program. Charlie Cox’s iteration of Daredevil makes the leap from its gritty eponymous Netflix series to the more sanitized Disney+ universe, with its next stop in the MCU occurring in She-Hulk: lawyer. The show also features Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, and while Marvel Comics fans should be thrilled at the chance to see the two superheroes share the screen, Daredevil and Hulk have appeared side by side before. side on TV before.
It’s only fitting that Daredevil would appear on a law-based show since his secret identity, Matt Murdock, is a lawyer who brings criminals to justice in the courtroom. But he will do more than his day job in the Disney+ series, as the latest She-Hulk: Lawyer The trailer shows the hero flipping through mid-air, donning his more comically iconic Daredevil costume and armed with his clubs. With Daredevil fully integrated into the MCU, it will be great to see him interact with more characters, including Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany) and potentially Bruce Banner, still in his “Smart Hulk” form. Yet, while such a reunion may seem novel, Marvel has shown Daredevil and Hulk battling together in live media before.
In 1989, NBC aired a made-for-TV comic book movie called The Trial of the Incredible Hulk. It was the sequel to The Incredible Hulk Returns plus a new sequel to the hit TV show based on Marvel Comics The Incredible Hulk starring Bill Bixby as “David” Banner and Lou Ferrigno as the first live-action Hulk. The Trial of the Incredible Hulk begins with Bruce on the run, living under an alias, but after a wrongful arrest for assault, he crosses paths with Matt Murdock (Rex Smith). As the Hulk, he teams up with Daredevil on several occasions, and they eventually part ways as friends. The TV movie was developed as a backdoor pilot for a Daredevil show and actually featured him more than the Hulk, but the spinoff never happened. The Trial of the Incredible Hulk is an entertaining piece of nostalgia but fails to live up to the current standards set by the MCU.
She-Hulk can correctly deliver a Hulk & Daredevil team
While a Daredevil and Hulk team-up already exists in live-action, The Trial of the Incredible Hulk does not offer particularly good performance. Compared to modern superhero films, it’s a lukewarm, tedious film with lots of heart but little visual excitement. Moreover, unlike She-Hulk, where Daredevil wears his signature costume, in the TV movie he wears a black outfit similar to Matt Murdock’s costume in the first season of his Netflix show. Also, oddly for a movie with his name in the title, Hulk appears less and less as the program progresses. In fact, the TV movie’s climax, in which Daredevil and Bruce Banner battle Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin (John Rhys-Davies), lacks the Hulk entirely.
The Hulk is unlikely to appear much in She-Hulk: Lawyer beyond what appears to be a practice montage early in the series. However, She-Hulk will be the focus of other MCU characters, and it looks like Daredevil will be suited up and ready to team up with the show’s main character. It’s not yet known how much screen time Daredevil will get She-Hulk: Lawyer, but any action scene between him and the Hulk will surely deliver the team-up audiences deserve. At least their MCU reunion will have to be better than the relatively less Hulk crossover that Marvel fans got when the two characters last appeared live together, in The Trial of the Incredible Hulk.
