It’s pretty clear that Matt Murdock’s world is going to get a lot darker in Daredevil Season 3. We mean that literally when it comes to his outfit. Daredevil will go back to a version of his original, Season 1-era black costume this season, and we found out the reasons why on a recent visit to the set.
While Matt’s red suit is certainly useful when it comes to protecting Matt Murdock from the worst Hell’s Kitchen has to offer, star Charlie Cox hinted that Matt will willingly abandon the suit as part of his descent into darkness in the new season.
Cox told us, “The way we transitioned into the red costume in the end of Season 1, the thing that really sold it for me was this conversation that Matt had with Father Lantom, where Lantom says… sometimes it’s important for there to be a symbol to be feared by people. They see something, it keeps them in check, it allows them to remember why they behave in a moral way. And that was the impetus for Matt to go and embrace this symbol, this red suit.”
