Former Daredevil Showrunner Buys Matt Murdock’s Costume At Auction
One of the final death knells for the Marvel Netflix series came when the Marvel Television Live Auction was announced. Props from Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist were sold off to the highest bidder. But one those bidders turned out to be former Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight. Via CBR, DeKnight successfully won the superhero outfit that Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) debuted in the first season finale of Daredevil.
For those of you who don’t know, they’re auctioning off props from the Marvel Netflix shows today. And I’m happy to report that this bad boy is coming home to live at the offices of DeKnight Productions, where it belongs! pic.twitter.com/YX59pvm8lD

According to Prop House’s auction site, the final price for Daredevil’s costume was $55,000.
Daredevil wore that costume throughout the second season and in The Defenders crossover. However, Murdock abandoned the costume in the third season. Instead, he reverted back to his black costume from the first season. But that didn’t stop Wilson Fisk from recreating the costume for Ben Poindexter’s fake Daredevil. The series came to an abrupt end before Poindexter could complete his transformation into Daredevil’s mortal enemy, Bullseye.
DeKnight will surely give the Daredevil costume a good home. But any future revival of the Netflix heroes will likely be a fresh start. That means a new costume for Daredevil, and possibly a new actor as well. But Marvel reportedly can’t use their Netflix heroes until two years after the series’ cancellation. So it may another year or more before Daredevil’s MCU future comes into focus.
What do you think about the price DeKnight paid for the Daredevil costume? Which props would you like to buy from the auction? Let us know in the comment section below!
