Hmm.. its an interesting read, and the costume looks ok. Kevin Smith (aka Silent Bob and Daredevl comic writer and fan) says he likes the costume. I know the picture isnt clear, but what do you guys think?

I personally dont really care for the movie as much as the Hulk, X2, or the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The red seems a but too much though.

Hmmm...what's that sound I heard just now? Oh...it's Affleck's career being flushed down the toilet...

At this time, I'll have to give it a "meh". The costume itself looks okay, but just that Daredevil never really appealed to me as a character (Lawyer by day, vigilante by night? sure...). Not to mention this movie supposedly has 3 major villains in it (and the history tells us that the results of superhero movie with multiple villains aren't too good).

The costume is just ok...
I don't know about the movie, but after Kevin Smith's and David Mack's runs on him, I started to like the character.

I'm scared about Elektra anyway, she'll be hard to make in a movie without being cheesy...

Batman Returns was pretty good and it had two villians, and if it's true Spiderman 2 will feature Doc Oc and the Lizard I'm sure it will work too. DD should have no trouble working, unless they're using a multi-villian structure like in Batman Forever or Batman And Robin... in which cause god help us all....

but on subject, the costume doesn't look that bad, not that good but that could just be the picture, but not bad.

I think this is an older picture though, I heard they're switching to the costumem that's black with red trim (i.e., the badassed one).

It's going to be hard to film something like this, I think a lot of people don't even realize Daredevil/Matt Murdock is blind. If they make a game based on it it's going to have be like Illbleed with a senses meter and just some tye-dye patterns of people shooting at you or something. :p

Besides who says comic to movie adaptations with multiple villains are bad?

Batman Returns ~ Catwoman, Penguin, Max Shrek (who was originally going to become Mr. Freeze in the third Batman film, but they decided to have Riddler and Twoface instead, but Joel hates black people or something so Billy Dee Williams didn't get to reprise his role as Harvy Dent)

Superman II ~ KNEEL TO GENERAL ZOD! DESTROY SUPERMAN!, Lex Luthor

Blade II ~ Eli Domaskinos, Jared Nomak, Reinhardt

The Crow ~ Myca, Top Dollar

Neither Joel Schumacher nor Nicholas Cage are involved in the Daredevil project, therefore it will kickass.

I'll wait till I see the movie in action before i judge the costume in full, but if Kevin Smith likes it I'll give it a shot.

As for multiple villians, well it's workable if done right. Not only in the examples listed by other people, but also cause the Kingpin needs henchmen to do his dirty work ^^

Daredevil rocks, I hope somehow Spider-Man can make a cameo, since they are comrades in so many ways.

He looks ugly! But then again, that's why I thought of Spiderman when I saw the first pics, and look how it ended! maybe DD will end being as cool as Spidey!

It looks a lot like a costume out of Batman forever. What is cooler is that the eyes are covered!

Seeing the bigger image it looks a lot better. I like it a lot. And it's cool that the eyes are covered.
