There really isn't much to the Matt Murdock costume. At night the character hits the streets looking like an action hero version a demon, but during the day his employment as a lawyer keeps him wearing nice suits and dark sunglasses to protect his permanently-damaged eyes. It will be a very exciting day when we get to see the vigilante in his new costume for the upcoming live-action Marvel Studios series for Netflix - but today we're just going to have to settle for what the character looks like out of his superhero garb.
The Instagram embed you see above comes from user craigengler (via SuperheroHype), who spent part of today on the set of Daredevil while it is in production in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The image came with the caption"And here's a sneak peek of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock in Daredevil." Simple, and to the point.
While a red tie would have perhaps been a nice touch, it's hard to complain about the accuracy of the Matt Murdock adaptation:
The shot was actually one of two that craigengler posted, though the second was decidedly less revealing. He uploaded the following image with the caption, "So Netflix's Daredevil is filming in Greenpoint today under the code-name "Bluff". I got a sneak peek for you"
In addition to Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, the new Marvel Studios series also stars Vincent D'onofrio as The Kingpin, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Rosario Dawson in a mystery role. Unlike the films we've seen so far from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and even Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the series is expected to be much smaller in scope and focus on street level crime. Daredevil is actually one of four Marvel shows in the works at Netflix, the others being Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones, and the plan is to eventually have all of the shows link up for a Defenders minseries.
While filming is happening now, Daredevil isn't expected to air until sometime next year - which is definitely sad news (though it will be available to binge-watch on its premiere date). Hopefully it won't be too long before we get our first look at the new costume for the lead, and when we do you can be sure that you'll find it here first.
