Based on interviews with show-runner Steven DeKnight and Marvel head’s Joe Quesada and Jeph Loeb, we were more or less assuming we’d see the classic red Daredevil suit in next weeks Netflix series, but it was never officially confirmed. Thanks to a recent AMA on Reddit with both Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio, we can put that baby to bed; Matt Murdock WILL be suiting up in red at some point in the series.
Charlie Cox had this to say on the suit:
I love both of the suits. Obviously it was great to involve the John Romita Jr. black ninja costume but the day I first put on the iconic costume is a day I will
And this in response to a question about the suit we haven’t seen:
I can tell you when they showed me the first drawings of the suit, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. I can’t wait for the fans to see it.
Additionally, he continued to express his interest in appearing in other MCU properties:
I have no idea if this is even a possibility but I can tell you that I would love nothing more. I don’t see why the character from our show couldn’t fit in with the Avengers, if he was invited 😉
Vincent D’Onofrio is pushing to appear in additional properties as well:
Civil War. I’d like to not just be in one, but the whole series. Also, since Spidey is back at Marvel, there was no other badder nemesis in Spidey than Wilson.
Talking more about Spidey, D’Onofrio was asked if he’d be willing to be a villain in Spider-Man:
Absolutely, I’m waiting for the call..
