A stunning concept design imagines Charlie Cox suited up as Daredevil for the character’s upcoming MCU series on Disney Plus.
Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock was last seen suiting up as the hero of Hell’s Kitchen in the third and final season of Daredevil on Netflix. The series was canceled, along with the other Marvel shows on streaming giant, as the advent of Disney Plus saw new MCU content coming to Disney’s own platform. However, the popularity of Cox’s Daredevil seems to have triumphed and the series is set to make a comeback — the only Marvel Netflix series to be revived for Disney Plus so far.
Marvel’s characters are no strangers to wardrobe changes, with the majority of the MCU heroes getting a new look with every film or series in which they appear. It makes sense that heroes like the Avengers, with a wealth of resources and technology at their disposal, would keep updating their suits and equipment to better combat new threats. However, even the street-level heroes like Daredevil could do with a fresh look every now and then.
Charlie Cox’s Daredevil went through a few costume changes over the course of his Netflix series. His initial costume was a homemade all-black outfit with a bandana mask, which was subtly upgraded over the course of the first series. Eventually, in the Season 1 finale, he got his classic red threads from Melvin Potter, Wilson Fisk’s tailor who specialized in lightweight bullet-proof clothing.
When Daredevil’s cowl took a bullet from Frank Castle, A.K.A. the Punisher, in Season 2, he got an upgrade that resembled his comic-book look a little more closely. Season 3 then saw him revert to a stripped-back version of his homemade black suit while he was deprived of his classic costume. When Matt Murdock suits up again in his highly-anticipated Disney Plus series, the chances are Marvel will jump at the chance to reimagine his Daredevil look once again. This fan-made image from Instagram user “spdrmnkyxxiii” depicts a new, streamlined look for the Man Without Fear.
Very little is known of the direction the Disney Plus series will take Daredevil. Marvel’s Netflix series were aimed at a more adult audience, incorporating darker themes and imagery than mainstream MCU projects. It seems likely that a Disney Plus Daredevil will be a little more family friendly, bringing it in line with other Disney Plus shows, even if it skews towards the darker end of that spectrum. However, with Marvel Studios vowing to keep Deadpool 3 R-rated now that the character is being brought into the MCU, maybe there’s also room for the more adult tones of Daredevil.
Charlie Cox recently returned to the MCU as Matt Murdock, without suiting up as Daredevil, in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Here is the synopsis for the movie:
For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, Benedict Wong, Tony Revolori, Marisa Tomei, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire.
