LOOK: “Daredevil” Costume Concept Art Reveals Comic Inspiration

The reveal of Daredevil’s superhero suit was a big moment in season one of the Marvel Netflix series, with the hero suiting up in the finale episode to bring the hurt to Kingpin in a one-on-one fight. But, as is the case with all superhero properties, the hero of “Daredevil” almost put on a totally different look.

Concept artist Josh Nizzi has posted a pair of “Daredevil” costume designs on his website, one of which bears a strong resemblance to the final look while the other hews closer to the comics.

The design on the right, which its black accents, has the most in common with the final Daredevil suit seen in the series The one on the left, however, looks more like the hero’s classic comic book look thanks to its red coloring and “DD” chest logo. The letters, which have been a staple of Daredevil’s comic look since his debut 50 years ago, have yet to appear on the Netflix version.

Nizzi has worked on many Marvel movies since 2012’s “Avengers,” recently serving as senior illustrator on “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Ant-Man” and “Captain America: Civil War.”

“Daredevil” returns to Netflix for season two on March 18.
