After recent photos and videos from the New York City set of Daredevil: Born Again revealed the first look at costumes for Wilson Bethel’s Bullseye and Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, fans have been in an uproar as the scene in question may have featured some significant spoilers. A day later, filming in NYC proved to be the gift that keeps on giving as new BTS pics taken during daylight hours have provided the best look yet at the bright red suit Cox was sporting in those scenes.
The new suit is certainly far brighter than any of the suits seen during the three seasons of Marvel Television’s Daredevil. While the cowl and belt seem fairly similar to the one seen during his appearance on She-Hulk, it’s clear the chest and abdominal areas are brand new. Of interest are the blue dots on DD’s arms, stomach and back. Given he’s been in a fight with Bullseye, it’s very possible these are spots where either wounds or even knives (Bullseye was carrying a significant number of throwing knives on his gear in the set photos) will be added during post-production.
It’s also of note that while some of Daredevil: Born Again will be set during the MCU’s present day, the scenes captured around Josie’s bar may be set at some point in the MCU’s past. There’s been plenty of rumor and speculation that Matt will have “retired” from being Daredevil following some traumatic events. It’s very possible those events may have unfolded right before everyone’s eyes on the streets of NYC with Bullseye taking out a close friend of two of Matt’s.
We’ll all have a while to wait before finding out as the first part of Daredevil: Born Again isn’t expected to stream until 2025.
