While the DAREDEVIL Netflix series has received near-universal acclaim from fans and critics alike, most seem to be relatively split on the design of the actual suit itself. Some even went so far as to say that the suit ruined the series (which, let’s be honest, is silly). Anyway, as many know, things like suits go through many drafts before the filmmakers settle on the final designs, and believe it or not DAREDEVIL was no exception.

Josh Nizzi, one of the concept artists recently released two images on his site that showed alternate versions of the suit.

Check them out below:

As you can see, the first image is incredibly different from what we saw in the show. It’s much closer to the spirit of the comics, for sure, but also a lot less grounded–and probably a lot more difficult to pull off in the real world. The final suit that we saw looks a lot more like the second image. While yes, it does look a bit silly and square, it’s functional. Let’s admit it, for a man like Matt Murdock, how important are the actual aesthetics of the suit?

DAREDEVIL returns to Netflix with season two on March 18, 2016.
