With Charlie Cox’s MCU as Daredevil in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law just a few weeks away, hype is at an all-time high, especially given his recent appearance and subsequent interviews at D23 Expo 2022 in Anaheim. At the event, fans were shown a Hall D23 exclusive clip of Daredevil interacting on a rooftop with Jen Walters. The clip showcased a new take on the character as well as a new look: a yellow and red costume.
The yellow costume pays homage to the one worn by the character in 1964’s Daredevil #1 and has been teased in promotional material for the show. It’s also something fans of the character have been asking to see in live-action for some time now and has been the topic of social media talk in the months since it was first seen in the trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law. As it turns out, fans aren’t the only ones excited about the yellow suit.
In an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Cox detailed his emotions when he first learned he’d be wearing the classic suit in his appearance on She-Hulk.
I got to go to LA to go to a fitting and I walk in and the suit is hanging there but then there’s a drawing on the wall and it has the gold and red. And I was like, “no way.” It’s funny because when you play the character this long, you’re emotionally connected to the fans’ response. So you see something like that and it means something to you, but you know what it means…what it’s gonna mean. You start to have a sense of how people are going to respond to that.Charlie Cox
Cox, who has been playing Daredevil since 2015 and who returned to the character after a long hiatus, is not only a fan favorite but also seems to clearly love the role and appreciate what it means to the massive fanbase that’s been built up over the years. With at least two future appearances set in stone for the character, it’ll be fun to see what other Daredevil costumes Cox gets to suit up in over the next several years.
Daredevil can be seen in an upcoming episode of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law ahead of an appearance in 2023’s Echo and 2024’s Daredevil: Born Again.
