For my money, the best thing that came out of Marvel this year (with the exception of the stellar Secret Wars comics) was the first season of Daredevil on Netflix. It brought us down to the street level of the Marvel Cinematic Universe without losing sight of what made the movies so appealing in the first place.
I couldn’t get through the season’s thirteen episodes fast enough, but by the time it was over, I was ready for thirteen more. Thankfully, Marvel announced shortly after Netflix released the episodes that Daredevil would return for a second season sometime in 2016, and we’d have Jessica Jones to tide us over in the meantime.
Since then, there hasn’t been much news regarding the future of Daredevil, but on Wednesday evening, the official Daredevil Twitter account shared an image of what appears to be a new costume that will appear in season 2. The caption reads: “The suit makes the man.”
If you watched the first season, you probably remember that Daredevil didn’t don the iconic costume until the very last episode, but it looks like a wardrobe change is already in order for next season. Shortly after the official image was shared, observant fans found a photo from a fashion trade show that seems to show the costume in full:
It’s not a drastic difference from the suit we saw in season one, but at this point, we’ll take anything we can get. As for details of the show, we know that Daredevil will team up with the Punisher, played by Jon Bernthal, next season, and that Elektra will likely make her first appearance as a love interest.
Daredevil season 2 will premiere on Netflix next year.
