Charlie Cox‘s return as Daredevil has long been requested by fans, and after a brief cameo as his Matt Murdock persona in Spider-Man: No Way Home, he’s finally going to put on the cowl again in the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. However, the show’s head writer Jessica Gao has said that his appearance in the series won’t be as dark as that of Netflix.

Speaking to The Direct in a recent interview, the creative said that they wanted to bring different characters into the world of She-Hulk and allow them to play by the show’s tone instead of being their usual personas.

“Charlie (Cox) is so wonderful. He’s so game to do whatever, and he’s such a wonderful actor, and a wonderful human being,” Gao began. “What was so fun about bringing him and Daredevil into our world is that people have already seen a Daredevil who is very dramatic, little bit on the heavy side, very dark, brooding.”

She continued: “And it was so fun to be able to do — and we do this with every character cameo from the MCU — is we take them from the environment that you know them from, which is a much more dramatic and action-oriented role, much more on the serious side, and we bring them into our world and they get to play in the tone of She-Hulk. And they got to explore and we get to see a lighter side of that character.”

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law hits Disney+ August 18.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Warner Bros. is reportedly considering completely scrapping The Flash following Ezra Miller’s latest arrest for burglary.
