That could work. Another question is what should his costume look like? I really liked the movie costume, should it be something like that or something different? Also, can we please get a proper version of Elektra, pretty please Marvel?

I'd like Matt to end up in something like the Affleck suit (though not in leather) EVENTUALLY. With 13 episodes to play with they have plenty of time to build up to the reveal by going through stages - street clothes & cane, billy club, yellow suit with mask, red suit with horned cowl. Take your time so that Matt's swinging through the air in his traditional outfit seems like a perfectly reasonable decision based on what we've learned about the character.

I'm not a fan at all of delaying the inevitable....i.e., seeing Matt suit up as DD. That's what viewers will tune in for; not having to wait 5 or 6 episodes for Daredevil to become Daredevil. He should be in his devil-red suit by no later than the end of the 2nd episode, tops.

Really? Second episode? I would go straight into it. I would probably head straight into it, into matts intensity as daredevil and then spend the rest of the season going into what he's like as a person. I wouldn't even mention the accident that gave him his powers until the second last episode.

That's just me though

I don't know - with the cowl, horns, DD symbol and red unitard, Matt's got a very loud costume. Movies that handled the introduction of similar types of suits - Raimi's Spider-Man, Batman Begins, Captain America: TFA - all eased the viewer into the final suit by having our hero wear transitional costumes and explaining how and why we ended up with the final outlandish design. You don't need half a season, but if Netflix and Marvel are starting from the fixed fight and the accident they need at least a couple of episodes to get DD where he needs to be.

Isn't DD's yellow and black costume more loud and outlandish than his red one? It looks almost like a circus outfit. In the Affleck movie it was a dark red and didn't really look loud at all. It blended into the night shadows well and didn't stand out too much.

It's not like Hulk has had to go from grey to green to ease viewers into his bright colour.

DD's costume can get by with some practical and symbolic excuses. If you're going to go out thug-hunting at night on the rooftops, you're going to need a dark (even dark red), aerodynamic unitard kind of suit; and the horns and the like can be symbolic, designed to elicit fear and urban legends, just like the Batsuit in BB. I don't think audiences would find that too hard to grasp, especially in a universe that's already filled with superheroes and villains in funny costumes. DD's threads have always been cooler and sexier than some of the more garish Gold/Silver Age designs.

If they'll buy Loki's Reindeer Horn helmet, then they'll buy DD costume. It's just a red costume with little horns, that's nowhere near as "exotic" a costume as Batman or Spiderman, or Thor, etc have.

I agree, something similar but different material, it was a little too shiny for my taste.

Only if you are unwilling to have Stick practicing actual quasi-mystic kung fu. Which, given we *know* Iron Fist exists in the same setting, would be silly.

And I'd go with putting Matt in the costume in the first episode. You can fill in more of his backstory with flashbacks or flashback episodes.

I really hope we get a scene similar to this, where he's sitting on a rooftop for hours and sifting through all kinds of sounds until he finds what he's looking for.

I don't know if supernaturaly derived powers works for DD. I'd stick with the goo.

There is no film. It's going to be a Netflix TV series.

Elektra showing up HAS to happen, I will call foul if it doesn't. I want to see a PROPER Elektra and now we have another chance. Typhoid Mary or Lady Bullseye would be cool villains to see, maybe working for the Kingpin like in the comics.

They have to a arc where Kingpin puts a bounty on Daredevil's head and he brings in a group assassins to do it.

It's a whole season. Odds are, Gladiator, Bullseye, Elektra, Mister Fear, Owl, Spot, Kingpin, Typhoid Mary and Nuke will all show up at some point or another to fight the man without fear.

Would Spot work on a TV budget though? Most DD super villains are TV friendly though, only a few exceptions like Bushwacker and Mr. Hyde might tricky to pull off on a TV budget.

I would rather a wide variety of villains appear, rather it just being Kingpin and Bullseye.

I am hoping this will actually be good, because frankly I never seen a good live action super hero series, I gave up on Agents of SHIELD after a couple of episodes, it was pretty bland and uninteresting.

I highly doubt that Marvel would go through the trouble of making a TV show and ONLY use two villains. In a movie, two villains is plenty, but not in a TV show. Typhoid Mary is the villain that I want to see the most, I love her bats**t insanity.

Well you obviously would have an ongoing arc with DD fighting against Kingpin's criminal empire.

I think a good question is, which DD villains would and would not work on TV series.

Besides the obvious choices: Kingpin, Bullseye, the Hand, Elektra and Typhoid Mary, there some interesting choices among the B and C-list DD villains:

Gladiator is a must, I think he is an important part of DD lore, that can start as a villain and become a supporting cast. I think you need Owl for a gang war story with Kingpin, but I don't know what else you do with him. I kinda like Bullet. The Larry Cranston version of Mr. fear is kinda of interesting, he had a personal grudge against Matt before he knew he was DD, but I wonder if people will think he is too similar to Scarecrow. I like Bushwacker and Mr. Hyde, but they might be tricky to pull off in live action. I like Purple Man, but he plays a more important role in Jessica Jones life than DD's, I wonder if he will be introduced into DD's series and later show up in Jessica Jones'.

In terms of villains who shouldn't show up: Jester is too much of an obvious Joker rip off, Mr. Fear used the fear gas gimmick before Scarecrow, so whether he is a rip off is debatable, but Jester is a rip off of the most famous super villain of all. Stilt-Man would cost too much and his cost could not be justified by the limited role be would play on the show. Seriously if you want some goofy villain for DD to beat up within the first 5 episodes of an episode there is Matador, Leap-Frog and Turk, Stilt-Man brings nothing important to the table.

Well a little build up wouldn't hurt, they may have to go over the origin for the general audience, but I would want DD in costume by the end of the first episode.

They could use at least 10 villains in a 13-episode show.

They *could* do almost anything. There aren't any real restrictions and they aren't trying to fill a quota.

Also agreed about Typhoid Mary, she's my favorite DD villain and she's awesome.

Gladiator's look and powers could be really iconic in live action with those whirling blades, especially if he had been in a movie. If you're going to have Gladiator, then Deathstalker should follow close behind, along with Man Thing.

And don't forget that once DD fought both Gladiator and the Beetle together. Also, both Gladiator and the Beetle are Iron Man villains (the Beetle has also fought Spidey).
