The lawyer isn’t the first time Daredevil and Hulk have crossed paths on the small screen
The title of the movie is a bit of a misnomer. Hulk (Lou Ferrigno) never ends up on trial anywhere but in his own head. But he happens to witness the assault of a young woman on a subway train and inadvertently slips away to defend her. He does not know that the henchmen carrying out the assault are Wilson Fisk’s henchmen, fresh from a successful jewelry heist. The confrontation leads to Banner (Bill Bixby) being arrested, falling asleep in his jail cell, escaping from prison, facing no legal consequences for any of these events, and then teaming up with Murdock (Rex Smith) to save both the girl and the day. At the end of the film, the two men go their separate ways in order to pursue their own goals.
Overall, audiences accepted the film at best. It has 5.8/10 stars on IMDb and only 47% approval on Rotten Tomatoes. Interestingly, it was supposed to be a backdoor pilot for a Daredevil TV series at the time, but although the movie’s ratings were quite high, the series itself was never picked up (via Hardcore Graveyard). There is, however, one very special thing to note about this particular movie: it featured Stan Lee’s first-ever live-action cameo from the comic book legend. If you look closely, you can spot him as the foreman during Hulk’s dream sequence in the film.
