While talking to Empire Magazine, Daredevil costume designer Stephanie Maslansky reveals that the black outfit that we’ve seen in the trailer and images, was pieced together from “practical sports and military wear, restitching garments from companies like McDavid, CAT, and G-Star.” All of this is stuff that Matt could “go out and find himself.”
When the site mentioned the red outfit and horns, she added: “In the end, somebody else in the story makes his Daredevil costume. What’s really exciting is the evolution of it, and how he comes to have it made.”
Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight wasn’t willing to reveal anything specific, but it does sound as if we’re going to see the costume develop and change throughout the season.
“Without giving too much away, this show is Matt learning to be a hero. He starts in that first iteration of the Daredevil outfit which is taken very much from Frank Miller and The Man Without Fear. But I always questioned the main costume. I mean, one, he’s blind. Did he stitch it together himself? How did he manage all that? So, actually getting him to that point I thought was really interesting.” This seems to indicate that someone else will create Daredevil’s classic red suit for him. There’s no official answer at the moment and if you ask me it won’t be answered until we finally get to see the series premiere on April 10th.
The interview went on to talk about the level of violence in the series, with DeKnight confirming that they will push the boundaries of what’s acceptable in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
