What’s the Deal With Daredevil’s New Suit on ‘She-Hulk’?

Daredevil in his yellow suit

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Daredevil ready and taking on Hell’s Kitchen. While he wasn’t actually in Hell’s Kitchen this time around, we do know that we’re going to see Daredevil returning to the MCU later down the line in his own show. Now, we have finally seen him show up in Los Angeles opposite Jen Walters and seeing him in his new red and yellow suit? Well, it was glorious.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law teased and taunted so many of us and it took 8 weeks of waiting but we finally got to see Matt and Jen meet. Both as lawyers and superheroes. In the episode, Matt is there to support his client Luke Jacobson. Yes, the same designer who works with Jen. When her client Leap Frog misused his suit and tried to sue Luke, it all went downhill for Jen.

And things get worse when Eugene (Leap Frog) kidnaps Luke after losing the case. It leads to Jen and Matt fighting with each other before Jen realizes what is happening and then the two break into Leap Frog’s Lily Pad together. And in it, Matt showed up with a new vibe.

We got a whole knew look for Daredevil and it isn’t just his typical red fare; there’s a bit of yellow to Matt’s new suit, and while we didn’t see that in the original three seasons of the Netflix show Daredevil, it isn’t exactly a look that is new to Matt Murdock.

Daredevil’s yellow costume is right from the comics

Daredevil #1 (April 1964) featured the character in a yellow and red suit—so the thinking is that it’s a nod to his comic origins. In the series Daredevil, we saw Daredevil in his black outfit—before he got the iconic Daredevil look (that we all know and love)—so this, being his introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Daredevil, could be a fun nod to the comic introduction of the character.

So while the comics suit is not as high tech as the one that Matt appears to be wearing on the show, the yellow seemingly feels like an homage to the original Daredevil look from the comics. It might change once we see Matt in the show, but going off what we know of Matt Murdock and the comics, this is the easy assumption to make.

Was Daredevil funny?

One of the more fascinating things I’ve seen go around online recently is fans (typically men who have yet want to hate the show) are already complaining that it is ruining the MCU (again, they’ve not seen the show). Why? Because it’s girly and a comedy? But it has also extended into Matt Murdock and their “fears” for the character—because there seems to be some weird consensus that Matt Murdock is too serious of a character for a show like She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.

Newsflash: He’s always been funny! He’s funny in the comics, he was funny on Daredevil, and he continues to be a funny character in She-Hulk, and honestly, having him in the yellow and red suit will hopefully help bring even more of that aspect for Matt in the series.

The yellow and red suit works for him; he seems happy and healthy, and he also is ready for a one-night stand, so we have to love and respect him. It was great having Matt Murdock back on television, and the minute I saw him fighting in a hallway, I started cheering. Because come on, it’s MATT MURDOCK IN A HALLWAY.
