It's on Daredevil. You've got to think in Hollywood terms -- you can't have BOTH your leads wearing the same color. It would get confusing. Plus, Elektra has been known to wear black.

Do you realize how stupid and un-attractive that would look on Jennifer Garner? She would look ridiculous. It's also incredibly impractical from the standpoint that she's an assassin. I would think, by now, with all the "real life" changes in comics films, you'd be used to the fact that not all superhero costumes are going to be "verbatim" changes.

You can thank the designers on X-Men (Another film where the entire cast didn't wear direct interpretations of their four-color counterparts) and the Matrix for this and Daredevil's leather outfit as well.
Originally posted by rikidozanyeah, they had to change it. With the exception of Spider-man, superman, & batman, most superheros look silly running around in their multi-colored jammies...
Both Spider-Man and Batman's costumes were also changed for the films.
Uh, no! As if, sistah!
Sorry...just saw Undercover Brother.
The Batman costume (1989) for the movie was in actuality the costume used in the comics. Utility belt, cape, cowl, yellow circle around classic symbol. The works. No nipples, no changes. The only Spider-Man change was the raised silver webbing on the costume. That's it.

As someone who's read comics for almost 20 years, I can safely say Batman's costume, circa 1989, was BLUE and GRAY. It was NOT all-black as depicted in the film. Even the bat-symbol in the film was marketedly different than the comic book version. Plus, Batman's costume in the comics is made of CLOTH and not RUBBER.
Originally posted by PalpatineWWell, at least the ORIGINAL Batman was true to the comic.
Technically, it wasn't. The costume was designed and altered to make Adam West look ridiculous. They put the utlity belt up ABOVE his waist and increased the size and they shrunk the size of the oval (both of these combined gave West a rather oafish, potbellied look, when in actuality, he was pretty cut and muscular). Also the cowl was modified with shorter ears.
Originally posted by rikidozan the only difference i noticed was the black webbing on the costume was raised a little, i think
Not only was it raised, but it was also silver. The general shape of his eyes on the mask were altered, and he didn't have any wrist mounted webshooters.
I realize these are all minor changes on the Spider-Man costume, but nonetheless they are changes.
I'd say that the TV suit was a different shade of blue than they were using in the comics, but I'm not 100 % sure of that. Most of my Silver Age Batman books are post-TV show and the ones before and during I have I didn't get for the Batman stories (ie the J'onn J'onzz stories in Detective).
I'd take more issue with the designs of the villains in most film/tv versions than the heroes.
Banded together from remote galaxies are 13 of the most sinister villains of all-time: The Legion of Doom. Dedicated to a single objective: the conquest of the universe.
I've always liked the late shows, but the place where I've seen the late shows is where you see some comics take some big risks and do some experimental stuff. Plus, with the late shows, there isn't a rush to get done (for the next show).
