Daredevil: Born Again is currently one of the most anticipated projects among the upcoming MCU projects. Following Charlie Cox’s introduction in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Matt Murdock was shown in his full potential in the MCU for the first time in She-Hulk. Besides being highly different from the Netflix version in its tonality, this Daredevil also got popular due to his suit. The comic-accurate red and yellow costume divided the fanbase widely and raised a storm on the internet. Further, it was stated by the She-Hulk director that Murdock will don several suits in his solo series.
Some reports state that the upcoming version of the Man without fear will have no less than six suits in the upcoming Disney+ series. This has once again started an Internet debate with several fans claiming it to be completely unnecessary.
Daredevil: Born Again will portray the superhero in multiple costumes
She-Hulk was not at all a smooth ride in itself. The show faced a highly divided reception due to many factors. The VFX of the show was one of the prime drawbacks faced by it as stated by many. But the talks were just amplified when we got to watch the highly anticipated appearance of Daredevil in it.
The Charlie Cox character had a huge impact on the show as many fans loved to watch this version of the blind vigilante. Besides all the talks centering on the Disneyfication of the character, his classic red and yellow suit also sparked a debate on various platforms. But very soon, the director of the Tatiana Maslany show, Kat Coiro hinted that Matt Murdock is going to get even more shows in his solo series.
“It’s funny, there’s so much talk about the color of the suit, and to me, that’s the genius of introducing a character like the tailor [Griffin Matthews’ Luke Jacobson] because then you see that this is a human being who has to order his super suit. So there can be many variations of that suit, and while the ketchup and mustard pays respects to the comics, there could be other suits moving forward because now we’ve got a tailor to make them.”
Some latest reports hint that the lawyer is going to get nothing lesser than six suits. This has once again raised a fire on the Internet as the audiences question the need for it.
The Internet is divided over Daredevil’s suits
According to the fans, such a huge number of suits for a character like Daredevil is not justified. They think that the iconic Netflix suit would have been perfect for the character or even a single suit for the whole series could have worked. But a certain section also believes that a change of suits will relieve them of monotony.
We have collected Tweets from both sides to let you understand how a debate over a costume has led to an Internet war.
Bro Daredevil doesn't even have that many suits in his comic history 💀 you've got at most – the normal one, the yellow one, the black/Shadowland, the black starter suit and the 90s armoured suit

Now that's overkill. Matt is not a millionaire to keep over half a dozen different suits. One or max two would have been sufficient.

But why? To sell toys, yes.

This *seems* ridiculous but think about NWH. Peter had like 5 different suits in that movie and they managed to come up with decent explanations for them all.

Some people stating that more suits would help the company get more revenue from the toys can also be a potential reason for doing so. Besides the suit drama, some fans are still worried about the rating to be received by the show. Most of the audiences want it to get a TV-MA(equivalent to an R rating in movies) following the footsteps of the dark and gritty tone of Netflix unlike the shows made under the Disney umbrella.
A trusted insider Daniel Richtman also assured that Daredevil: Born Again will likely receive a TV-MA rating thereby raising hopes among the fans. On the other hand, with an R-rated project like Deadpool 3 in development under them, we can hope that they might consider more mature content for the MCU in the future.
Daredevil: Born Again will release sometime in Spring 2024 on Disney+, while She-Hulk: Attorney at Law can also be streamed on Disney+.
