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.

In each of us there lives a kind of beast... made of rage. Years ago I used science to study this beast... to bring him out of me. I used gamma radiation to release him... but I used too much... far too much. Now the beast is out of my control... emerging whenever anger stikes. My name is David Banner... the world thinks I'm dead... I travel alone... I try to keep the beast caged within myself...

Seems like I critiqued this, already, but I can't remember where. Anyway, I'll try to keep it brief. Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, as Dr. Banner and the Hulk, respectively? Incredible, as always. John Rhys-Davies as the Kingpin? Makes his performance 100 percent convincing, as usual. Rex Smith as Daredevil? Compared to the current Ben Affleck version, he looks more like that other blind Marvel hero, the Shroud (sans cape and Darkforce taffy). But, the martial arts/gymnastics are stupendous! I'd say: three stars out of four. *All four naturally belong to Affleck's movie.*
