In Marvel Comics, Jennifer Walters battles against Matt Murdock in court, but fans weren’t sure if this could occur in the live-action series. Marvel wiki Writes:
With her new law firm, Jennifer went against Matt Murdock (also the superhero Daredevil) for the first time. Steve Rogers (Captain America) was being sued for wrongful death and had asked Murdock to do his best against him, while Jennifer would do her best to defend him. It was looking grim for Jen’s side, considering the evidence that would clear Steve’s name was classified, but she managed to get the jury in her good graces and win the case.
With Marvel Studios keeping the filming of Charlie Cox under wraps increasingly better than for Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), it’s evident that Kevin Feige and crew are prepping to expand Marvel’s New York with Daredevil: Born Again and more.
