James Gunn's reaction to Daredevil plus two new looks at the red suit

04.13.2015

Now that you have had a weekend to binge watch Marvel's Daredevil series on Netflix, chances are you have seen the full red costume worn in towards the end of the first season. If not, I would not read much past this paragraph as two new high-res photos of Charlie Cox in the suit have been unveiled.

The suit is definitely not the traditional one from the pages of Marvel Comics but it is definitely a modernization that fits better in the Marvel Cinematic Universe than the one worn by Ben Affleck in the feature film. It has a customized look to it and a very utilitarian feel but still comes across as something that could exist alongside any of The Avengers or a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.

Marvel's Daredevil has won over audiences with it's gritty take on the comic book characters that inhabit Hell's Kitchen. One such fan, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY director James Gunn, was even brought to tears by the show. Here's what he said via his Facebook page.

I have loved the character of Daredevil since I was a little boy. Outside of Batman, Daredevil probably has more great comic book arcs than any other character. From Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli to Kevin Smith to Ed Brubaker and on and on, the character has elicited some of the best work from some of the greatest comic book storytellers.

So I was a bit frightened last night when I dug into the new Marvel's Daredevil Netflix series. I'm a rough TV critic - I love five or so shows on the air right now, but that's about it - and I didn't want to see one of my favorite characters come up short. On top of that I really like Steven S. DeKnight, the showrunner, and Drew Goddard, the creator, both as people and as creative forces (Spartacus, Cloverfield, Cabin in the Woods, etc).

Well, I love it. The cast is great. Charlie Cox is just awesome, and Elden Henson is about as an amazing a Foggy as I could have imagined. The fight sequences stand alongside Spartacus and Rome as some of the best TV fight sequences ever (so, the best TV fight sequences ever not performed in togas). And the scripts have been touching and on point and true to the character. In the first few episodes, I cried twice: once in a scene between young Matt and battling Jack, and again when I realized this character I loved so much for so long had been brought to television with such spirit, love, and care.

What I'm saying is, there's a huge Marvel event going on right now, and it's Daredevil on Netflix I hope you guys check it out.

So, in a nutshell, Daredevil is great. Make sure you keep up with our take on the show as we bring you a recap of every episode of the first season every day for the next couple of weeks. You can catch the reviews already posted by clicking right here. Daredevil is now streaming on Netflix.

That's just the way the light is hitting the mask, it makes it look like there are eye holes. There aren't

Even if he didn't like it he's not going to take a dump all over a Marvel produced project. Seriously.

I'm in love with this show but I'm sorry, Foggy is God awful. The acting, the writing, everything.

One episode in..

I like what I saw in the first part and optimistic, based on my own views and the love that it is getting, that I am going to love the next 11 episodes.

Loved the series but I would occasionally become distracted by Charlie Cox's resemblance to Will Forte.

The mask is terrible. The suit is fine. The show is great! I loved it so much I don't care what suit he wears, just keep giving me good stories, good characters (that Kingpin!), and good action.

These pictures do the suit more justice than the previous motion poster.

Love the show

the suit not so much, actually afflecks suit was near perfect, in his black clothes he looks more menacing then he does in this, and i think it obstructs his fast movements. His black clothes should be dark red and with a better fitting and simpler mask it would look better in my opinion.

It looks more practical. It needs joints so he can move in it.

I've watched the series. As a whole, it's good. Those pictures are two different suits. He only has one new one in the series.

Both of those pictures are of the same suit. Turn your brightness up so you can see details. Exact same suit.

Suit is ok, but over detailed. The mask just fits awkwardly on his face. I'm predicting a re-do by the time he shows up on The Defenders.
