Netflix is now trying to backtrack on some of the new blowback from the accidental leak of a photo including the new Daredevil costume that will be featured in the upcoming second season of Marvel’s Daredevil. This new season will not come out until 2016, and will likely be covering a conflict between The Punisher and Daredevil, which promises to continue the more adult tone for this Marvel Cinematic Universe television show. Once the image was released, Netflix tried to co-opt the leak by showing the suit with the tagline “The Suit Makes the Man.” The new suit owes a little more to the earlier days of Daredevil, mixing some of the dark blue color on the red suit.
So do you prefer this to the now classic red? Would you like some of the old school yellow in it? This seems to just be a sign of the slight leap away from comic tradition from many of the television shows, though the Marvel Studios projects notably have a lot less of that.

“The new suit owes a little more to the earlier days of Daredevil, mixing some of the dark blue color on the red suit.”
Please explain- the earliest iterations of DD’s suit were the yellow and red/black and the all red. There was no earlier days version using blue. If you are referring to the golden age DareDevil published by Lev Gleason in the forties,
http://pdsh.wikia.com/wiki/Daredevil , https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daredevil_(Lev_Gleason_Publications) – that character has no relationship to the Marvel Comics Daredevil – either by creative team, storyline nor publisher. They share the name but have no relationship, unless it was Stan Lee figuring that the character was no longer in use and being a common word, he could use it for a Marvel character- but that is pure conjecture on my part.
What is the early use of blue in the DD costume you are referring to?
