Excitement is building among Marvel fans as new snapshots keep rolling in from the set of ‘Daredevil Born Again,’ Marvel Studios’ upcoming series that’s set to revive the Hell’s Kitchen Devil from the Netflix era, now fully integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Recently, we got a sneak peek at the fresh takes on Daredevil and Bullseye, featuring their updated suits. Now, we’ve been treated to new images of Charlie Cox sporting his new attire, giving us an up-close view of the changes this time around.
What’s quite noticeable—and may come as a surprise to many—is the absence of the iconic DD logo traditionally emblazoned across Daredevil’s chest. The decision to exclude it seems to be a deliberate choice by Marvel Studios, moving away from an element many fans associate with the comic book version of the character.
Marvel Studios isn’t holding back with its commitment to the color red for Daredevil. The new suit design is a bold step, and from the photos we can see, it represents an evolution from past incarnations we’ve seen of the character. Swapping out the darker maroon hue and yellow accents previously spotted in ‘She-Hulk,’ the new suit features a more vibrant, intense red. This feels like a nod to the character’s comic book origins and a sign that Marvel Studios is embracing the superhero’s classic aesthetic.
Analyzing the images of Charlie Cox decked out as Daredevil, we see a design that leans more toward the comic style and steps away from the “real-world” look that marked the Netflix series’ costume design. Now, the costume seems more streamlined with fewer layers, textural changes, and colored embellishments. The mask itself has been simplified, abandoning any exaggerated facial expressions for a flatter surface that feels a bit more mysterious.
But perhaps the most noticeable omission is that the new suit lacks any sort of ‘DD’ logo, a hallmark of Daredevil’s character in the Marvel Comics. Similarly, the Bullseye character is devoid of his typical target mark, another staple feature from the comics. Despite these adaptations, it’s going to be a bit of a wait for fans to see these suits in action, with ‘Daredevil Born Again’ not expected to hit Disney+ until possibly late 2024 or early 2025.
It seems that Marvel Studios is taking a fresh approach with ‘Daredevil Born Again,’ one that pays homage to the character’s roots while setting a new course for the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. Will these design choices pay off for the fans who have followed Daredevil through his comic book pages and on-screen portrayals? Only time will tell, but the anticipation is certainly mounting for what could be a new chapter for this beloved superhero.
