Marvel's Daredevil Charlie Cox

Marvel’s Daredevil is shedding its infamous red suit for a darker costume.

In the first official photos from the Netflix series (premiering in 2015), Charlie Cox’s (Boardwalk Empire) titular hero dons a black outfit inspired by Daredevil: Man Without Fear.

Over a multi-year rollout, Daredevil will be followed by a Jessica Jones series as well as TV takes on Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Once all four have made their Netflix debut, they will team up for a miniseries event that reimagines The Defenders, Marvel’s dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

But for now, enjoy a first look at Matt Murdock in his regular street clothes and his first superhero duds, then hit the comments with your thoughts on both styles.

    I wish we had an official release date.

    There’s really no reason they couldn’t have used a dark maroon costume. Black just feels too over-used these days, IMO.

    • Rex Mundi says:

      FYI – this costume looks remarkably similar to the BLACK outfit that Daredevil first wore in Frank Miller’s origin story, The Man Without Fear.

      Rest assured that Daredevil will eventually wear the red costume as well.

      • Badpenny says:

        Yes, I am aware of that. I guess my point is that it has become too much of a cliche for me at this point: every stalker-type hero has to start out with basic black. It is not adding to the immersion for me at this point because it has been done too many times before, IMO.

  3. Josh says:

    This costume bears an UNCANNY resemblance to the one worn by Murdock in the Incredible Hulk (Bixby) TV movie. Ugh.

  4. Dan says:

    Everybody just wants to see the red costume with horns and the DD. This just went down many notches. Not cool at all.

    • Jordan says:

      I would agree that it isn’t super thrilling, but Marvel is very specifically calling it his “first costume.” I’m taking that to mean he’ll end up in something closer to his most popular costume at some point in the series. When you think about it, his starting off with a less fancy costume seems more reasonable anyway. If you were blind and decided to start fighting crime, wouldn’t you head out on the town in something simple and utilitarian first to see if you were any good before you sat down to the sewing machine with spools of red and yellow thread?

  5. Johanna says:

    It’s possible this is not the costume he’ll use throughout the series — maybe it’s just the first iteration. Later, after he’s gotten used to being a vigilante, he gets a better costume. This one very much feels like “My First Sewing Project.”

  6. tabularasalocke says:

    Guys, this is his ninja costume. It’s the one he uses while he’s under training. This isn’t the DD costume and since the show is probably going to go through his origins, he’ll get a red costume with horns later on as he becomes Daredevil. Think of it like the stuff Bruce was wearing in Batman Begins before he fully made the Batman costume.

    Good photos from the show. Can’t wait to see Daredevil costume.
