Daredevil's red costume revealed in new motion poster for the Netflix series

04.09.2015

SPOILERS! If you don't want to see the red costume just yet, exit post haste!

By midnight you can start streaming Netflix's Daredevil series and for those that don't have the patience to see if he ever dons the trademark red costume I'm sure some skipping around will be in order. However, Netflix has let the cat out of the bag to satiate that desire today, revealing star Charlie Cox in the red get up in a new motion poster for the series. That ought to be enough to keep you on course with your binge watch and put your mind at ease if that was a major dealbreaker. If you still want to remain in the clear, though, I'd recommend NOT watching the below.

Check it out:

I guess the only issue I have is not seeing the "DD" on his chest, but otherwise this is looking solid and much better than a red leather biker suit. Having seen the first five episodes of this series and having read the Daredevil comics for more than two decades, I can say that this is an outstanding adaptation of the source material and, in my opinion, the most compelling comic book show out there. I know fans of Arrow and The Flash will smack me down for that (and hey, they ARE great shows, don't get me wrong), but Daredevil has a much more grounded and mature approach, which is a welcome respite from the flashier shows on network TV. I think many of you will agree once you get to soak your eyeballs in it. I'm stoked as hell to pick up where I left off and look forward to everyone's reaction to it, especially those DD fans who are looking to erase the 2003 film from their memory.

All 13 episodes of Daredevil debut Friday, April 10th on Netflix.

What do YOU think of DD's new red threads?

Obviously, this is a one perspective depiction of the costume, and I will reserve judgement until seeing it in action, but this looks pretty stupid. I understand they're going for reality in this series, and a real-life, self-made Daredevil costume might look a lot like this (if that good) in real life, but a big part of selling DD as a superhero is the costume. This isn't getting it done. Hopefully, as he comes into contact with the larger MCU, someone will help out with better costumes.

The eyes look terrible, forehead is too heavy and it should be all red.

Everything about this series looked great (except the black pre-DD costume). Until now. How do you fuck up the main costume so badly?!?

That's exactly the kind of suit I would want if I were taking on multiple armed assailants and was only using my fists and a billy club without any real superpowers. The armor would definitely slow one down a bit, but a bullet or knife wound would slow one down significantly more. And the image isn't even the full torso let alone body. It the armor is in strategic places with crumple zones, it could still allow for minimal hindrance on mobility. And I like that the suit covers his neck, and

It the armor is in strategic places with crumple zones, it could still allow for minimal hindrance on mobility. And I like that the suit covers his neck, and parts of his lower jaw, I always hated the lack of that aspect in Affleck's costume. Minor nitpick, don't like how the mask looks tight over the nose like snorkel goggles or the Christian Bale Bat mask, making the lips protrude.

Yah not watching the series and could really give a rip, but what is with all the cordura on all these costumes, looks like a duffel bag. Seems to be the go to look no days for costumes, where is the Gucci or Coach logo.

Well you certainly have the right to not watch the show. I've personally always hated the leather suit fad. The Cordura fabric is tougher than leather with more mobility. And Cordura can make for a good Kevlar imitation on these fictional outfits, much like Batman's armored suit was obviously made of a rubber type material, but believable with a stretch of the imagination. I love when a costume is comic accurate, but smooth spandex would look more like a porn parody than any valid superhero

Hmm...

I don't mind the armored change, it's hard to translate comic costumes to the big screen. Most guys are in spandex lol. But I agree, the DD needs to be on his chest! I predict 1-2 costume changes/redesigns in the near future. Reminds me of the ne Flash costume. I'm not gonna cry out in hysteria ove a 1/4 view of his costume, I'm too excited for this show! Let's see what's up in 2-1/2 hours!

That must be a bad angle or something that doesn't even look like Charlie Cox's chin.

It strikes me as a red version of Night Owl from watchmen. I mean this could be good, but I am purist so I am not sure I like the helmet look over the tight cloth/leather for DD. I like the color and the way they did his horns but if they wanted a more armored DD they could have used his armored suit instead of making up a new one. I'll hold judgement till I see it in action, but I'm not 100% behind this.

Not terribly thrilled...

I don't like how his face looks in the mask, but I will hold judgement until I see it in action. I am pumped for this show and have a feeling the red suit will only be revealed on the last episode. It would be great to see a nod or an attempt at the horrible yellow suit, but I think he will be in black for the majority of season one.

Yikes. This is one thing the movie got right, the mask looked good. Here it looks like he has a comically huge forehead.

The suit looks great but there's something about the cowl that bothers me. I don't know what it is but it looks a bit odd and out of place somehow.

As a child I thought it was unfair that I had to live through so much live action Marvel nonsense...but I realise that God was testing me...and he's rewarded me for my perseverance with not just Marvel...but top notch DC productions at an age where I understand and truly appreciate it all. My kids are 12 and 6...they enjoy this stuff...but do they really get it? It turns out i was born at the right time!

The thing that's throwing me off is the eyes, it's probably just an issue with the photo but the shiny pupils in the black eyehole look like the eyes of Simon Peggs little assistant in the new Star Trek Films. The overall look of the suit looks fine and practical.

I think the pic is just not very flattering. It's been photoshopped to hell. This series has been hailed Up and down for seemingly doing everything right, so I doubt THIS is where the fumble will be.

The horns need to be more pronounced. I actually really liked the costume in the movie that was one thing they got right. As for this I am kind of sick of the whole tactical Kevlar look. We have it for captain America, falcon, black widow, Hawkeye, even vision and what they showed for black panther have this same body armor feel to it. But at least it is not as bad as the swat suits the fantastic four are wearing.

The problem is that while the movie had many faults it did a pretty great job with the costume. Affleck looked like Daredevil (he also really looks like Batman, despite me not liking that choice.)

But Marvel can't have their Daredevil look like Affleck's so they are forced to go a different route. Unfortunately they went the route everybody is going these days: over detailed and over complicated.

Daredevil has always had a really simple look, the only truly distinguishing thing was the silhouette. The silhouette of this costume is terrible, not iconic. The square coming of the mask (who are we kidding HELMET) is a nice idea in theory, but its not working here. The brow is so low it makes his face look smushed.

All this said, we are only seeing in from one angle not in motion. It may well looked better on the show.

It would be better if we could see the suit as a whole to make a final judgement. But one thing that's bugging me is that it looks like there are eye holes in the mask. Daredevil isn't suppose to have eye holes in his mask, just like in the comics.

Did they photoshop his mouth? His mouth looks super photoshopped.
Also, they should have cut off the nose-guard. Daredevil never looked good with his nose covered.

So, how many people hating on this red suit loved the black garbage proto-suit for months? This is incredibly hypocritical.

In stark contrast to Ocelot_Snake's valid opinion. As a fan of Frank Miller's 'Man Without Fear' story I love the black suit as a preliminary outfit, and I'm loving the red suit even more. I think it's well designed and they use it more than just the final episode.

Neck down looks good, that mask though...

Something just looks dumb about the mask. I can't put my finger on it but it just looks off and distracting.

I watched the Directors Cut Daredevil the other night. Still a bad movie but fills in some gaps and fleshes out Murdock as a lawyer a bit more.
Not digging this costume but I plan on Netflixing this weekend.

Nope.. Not liking it

After studying this suit for a little while. I came to the realization that it's absolutely awful. He looks nothing like Daredevil. And why is the top of his head flat like a robot.

The suit doesn't look as great as I would have hoped, but maybe every new season of the series will have the suit updated more and more until it looks more in line of the film version with Affleck (I mean consdering the designs and costumes of past established Marvel characters, the Daredevil suit should be just as top notch).

None the less, still super excited for the show.

AND I've always found the Yellow and Black outfit kind of silly... Just my opinion.

WHY DOES HIS SUIT NEED SCREWS?

Seriously though...it just looks odd all around. It's bulky and it looks like body armor, which doesn't exactly fit the ninja-like, agile hero that he is. And God in heaven...what's with the screws?

I think they're rivets, pretty common for fastening thick materials together like jeans or in this case what looks to be Kevlar. I'm glad it's not tight leather which has very little stretch, even worse for mobility, and ninjas were known to often wear chest armor.

I am beyond excited for this but I'm not ENTIRELY sold on the outfit. I feel I have to give them some slack as its perhaps not an easy costume to sell what with the horns. Something tells me though that this is something that needs to be seen in action to be fully appreciated. I have a feeling that it could be better than it looks here..... Damn us fans are hard to please aren't we? ;)

Affleck's suit did have aesthetic qualities to it but never felt it was truly right. I hated the bandana ties behind the mask especially when they show the mask to be made of a hard material they were fooling no one that he actually needs to tie it up to fasten it, and not a fan of the leather/motorcycle outfit. It might protect him against road rash and small knives,bit definitely limited stretch and mobility.
