First look at Charlie Cox as Daredevil

The first images have appeared online from Marvel’s forthcoming Daredevil TV show, featuring our first glimpse of Charlie Cox in the title role.

The new images show Cox as both Matt Murdock and alter-ego Daredevil, with the former showing off his signature combo of sharp suit and rose-tinted specs.

The image of Cox as Daredevil shows off the character’s new costume in all its glory, and it looks a far more sober affair than the big-screen version, eschewing red leather for a black, ninja-inspired aesthetic.

“It’s been a real challenge,” said Cox, during a Q&A at the New York Comic-Con. “There are so many aspects to Matt, the blindness, the physicality, the action sequences…”

“I think the thing I loved about Matt Murdoch, is that we’re meeting a man who is a lawyer by day and believes in law and justice, and at night he’s taking the law into his own hands and then deciding what justice should be for himself, and all the time in between is spent battling with that concept.”

Co-starring Rosario Dawson and Vincent D’Onofrio, Daredevil will air on Netflix in May 2015.
