It was decided by the producers to change the Daredevil costume from red to black because they felt that an all-red suit would not translate well and look good in a television film. Daredevil's co-creator, Stan Lee, was publicly critical of the all-black Daredevil costume for "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk", as he felt the suit appeared to let the bad guys know of his blindness.

Second TV movie after the cancellation of the Incredible Hulk series holds well. In this film Bruce Banner heads to New York still trying to find a cure for his transformation spells into the Hulk. In the process he is arrested for the attempted rape of a young woman in a subway (in fact he actually helped her). He is given Matt Murdock as his lawyer and with the help of his alter-ego Daredevil he sets out to prove his innocence and rescue the woman who has been kidnapped. As part of a plan to release a Daredevil TV show Universal thought it would be good to see if audiences will enjoy Daredevil. Oh well the show never went further than this, but it still is a pretty good original appearance for Daredevil. Followed by The Death of the Incredible Hulk. 3 1/2 OUT OF 5 STARS.
