We’re less than 24 hours away from Netflix’s debut of Marvel’s Daredevil, and all we’ve seen is some weird pictures with Charlie Cox‘s Matt Murdock in what looks like half of a ski mask or those nifty red-lens glasses. Today, however, in anticipation of the series’ release tomorrow, Netflix and Marvel released a 20-second clip showing Murdock’s slow transition into Daredevil’s classic red suit, last worn by Ben Affleck in one of the most wholly risible superhero films ever made. It’s not a lasting image, or even a revealing one, but the suit looks good, even if we’ll have to wait for the latter half of the season to see its creation and ultimate usability in Murdock’s fight against Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), also known as the cumbersome Kingpin.
Steven S. DeKnight, an executive producer of the series, suggested last week that there is a definite want to do another season of Daredevil, though at this point the focus is on building up A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Fury, and, finally, The Defenders before getting into second seasons of any of the Marvel-Netflix shows. Regardless, the episodes that have been previewed thus far show tremendous promise for Daredevil, which is being overseen by Cabin in the Woods helmer Drew Goddard. There’s no word yet as to when exactly in the series Murdock will transform from a hooded vigilante into the crimson avenger, but we can assume it will be a climactic moment in the show and part of the lead-up to his showdown with Fisk and his cronies.
Marvel’s Daredevil premieres April 10th on Netflix. Watch the red-suit transition clip below:
