Get ready for the new daily show

Netflix’s Daredevil costume was very nearly comic book perfect…

February 10th, 2016 by Marc Comments


While there was mixed feelings about the Daredevil final costume in the Netflix series, it looks like Marvel were considering a much more traditional look too.

Artist Josh Nizzi, concept artist on Age of Ultron, Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to name a few, has spoken about the creative process that got Daredevil onto the big screen: “The design was iterated on again and again, evolving further away from the comic book original—until there was something that only vaguely resembled Daredevil. Here’s Nizzi’s “version 8″ take on the design

“This is a lot closer to what we ended up seeing on the show, but it’s also quite different from what you’d think of as Daredevil. You can also see where a lot of the elements from the comic design that were lost in the creation process were brought back to give us the look we saw in the series: The final suit has more more color, it ended up having horns as well as a larger face guard.”

While we preferred the black suited Daredevil in the early episodes of the series, the final suit did grow on us, the more we thought about it.

But this unused concept? Well, that is so much better…

what say you guys?


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
