After Daredevil’s appearance in She-Hulk was revealed, fans were very disappointed with the change, feeling that the character looked goofy and weird. Defending the decision, showrunner Jessica Gao said in an interview with Collider:
“He has so much respect and love for this character. Clearly the character meant so much to him, but he also came in very acting. He was totally up for more funny banter and having this fun dynamic with Jen and She-Hulk This really looks like the character from the comics.
