Marvel Reveals New Daredevil Costume

Marvel's Daredevil
Last 20 August 2015, Marvel shared a new image of Matt Murdock’s redesigned Daredevil suit, which features much more black this time around. Online communities actually caught a glimpse of the new outfit when Marvel posted a photo to Twitter, but the recent image is a much more detailed look at how the suit has changed.

Compared to Murdock’s suit at the end of season one, the new design has a much stealthier look, which fits in well with the Daredevil character. It’s great how the look of Murdock’s black ninja suit was merged with the red Daredevil outfit he wore at the conclusion of last season. Nobody had complaints about the all-red suit, but the black and red just works.

The American web television series was created for Netflix by Drew Goddard, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise, and is the first in a series of shows that will lead up to a "Defenders" crossover miniseries.

The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios, DeKnight Productions and Goddard Textiles, with Steven S. DeKnight serving as showrunner on the first season, and Goddard acting as consultant. Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will take over as showrunners for the show's second season.

Charlie Cox stars as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, a lawyer-by-day who fights crime at night. The series chronicles the character's early days fighting crime, juxtaposed with the rise of crime lord Wilson Fisk, played by Vincent D'Onofrio.

Daredevil entered development in late 2013, a year after the film rights to the character reverted to Marvel, with Drew Goddard initially hired in December 2013. Additional season one stars include Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Bob Gunton, and Ayelet Zurer, while Jon Bernthal joins the cast for season two. Filming takes place in New York City, in areas that still look like the old Hell's Kitchen.

All episodes of the first season premiered on April 10, 2015. The series was released to critical acclaim, with critics praising the action sequences, performances, and the darker tone compared to other properties set in the MCU. On April 21, 2015, Marvel and Netflix renewed Daredevil for a second season, due to premiere in 2016.

Marvel didn’t attach any caption with the photo, so everyone is left to speculate about why the change was made and when the show will air on Netflix early next year. What everyone do know, however, is that "The Punisher" will appear in season 2, adding a completely new dynamic to Murdock’s "Never Kill" mantra.

In addition to the new photo above, also check out a leaked photo that appears to reveal the new Daredevil design in its entirety.
