With Marvel and Netflix giving us plenty of looks at Daredevil’s black costume, we were beginning to wonder if we would get to see him in the familiar deep red from the comics…
And it appears we will as Daredevil showrunner Stephen DeKnight says: “He always wore a black mask that was tied in the back. We went through a lot of different versions and did a lot of R&D before settling on something. If you watch very closely, you’ll see the outfit evolve subtly into what we call the black ninja suit. The mask changes. He starts wearing protective pads. Eventually it morphs into the classic suit, because he wouldn’t be Daredevil without it. Getting there is part of the fun.”
In related (and unrelated at the same time) news, Miles Teller, Mr Fantastic in Fox’s Fantastic Four movie, has revealed that the suits we’ve seen so far are only protosuits and they will war the familiar comic attire: “These are the beta versions of the costumes, which is great […] But, yeah it would be very odd if the Fantastic Four didn’t don the traditional costumes. You’ve got to. There is some servicing there. You’ve got to give that to the fans. That’s what it’s all about.”
So, does this make you less worried about the Fantastic Four. Or even Daredevil?
