It might not be getting the same level of attention as some of Marvel's upcoming movies - and certainly not as much as May 2015's [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) - but [Daredevil](movie:47230) , Netflix's first entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is quietly shaping up to be one of the most exciting projects on its way to our screens.

The most recent news from the show, though, might just ruffle a few fan feathers - seeing as, from the sounds of it, Daredevil might be set to change the hero's costume from his iconic red outfit, to something...a little less conventional.


Daredevil Will Be Wearing Black and Red

Or, at least, that's what the latest report from ComicUI seems to suggest, with their source revealing that:

"It seems that Matt Murdock will be getting into costume in the series and that costume will be none other than red and black."

Which, fans of the comic will note, sounds an awful lot like a very particular costume from Daredevil's past - his outfit during the Shadowland storyline.

The reason that could be important? That story saw Daredevil cross over with a whole lot of New York's other superheroes (most of whom are also on their way to Netflix) - but as the villain. He had, it turned out, been possessed by a demon, which led him to take over as the head of his sworn enemies: the mystical ninja organization The Hand.

Now, it's entirely possible - and probably downright likely - that any costume change has more to do with the show's producers simply wanting to give the hero a new look.

All the same, it raises the intriguing possibility of a very different sort of plot-line than what we've previously expected for the show - one that could potentially even see Daredevil acting as the villain for Netflix's concluding mini-series, The Defenders...

What do you guys think, though?


Are you on board with a new Daredevil costume?
