Today's Mcpaper has pictures of Duncan as Kingpin and Colin Farrell as Bullseye.

God help us, Bullseye has a bull's-eye carved into his forehead.

And we thought elektra's costume was bad.

I'm sure they are all over the place, but I'm at work and can't scour the net. I'm sure someone (I'm looking at you, Jason), will find more pics, but here's the USA TODAY site, which only has the Bullseye one.

Forget the carved-in bullseye on his forehead - well, try to forget the carved-in bullseye on his forehead...OK, just temporarily ignore the carved-in bullseye on his forehead. Does he have a unibrow going on there? This is a guy who can kill a fly with an orange seed, I think he's got the deadly accuracy and physical control necessary to deftly pluck a few stray brow-hairs.

I know the whole rap about comic costumes not transforming to the screen, but Bullseye's white on blue-black would have fit the "costumes gotta be black!" push for comic movies, even if they just had to alter the white rings around his neck and shoulders or something. They went pretty much all the way for Daredevil's red suit, not sure why they backed off for Bullseye's largely cooler-looking uniform. Well, I guess if non-comic fan movie audiences laugh at Daredevil's costume, they can always say "He is blind, you know!"

Anyone know any of the specifics of the plot? Its obviously following the general path of the Kingpin/Bullseye/Elektra Miller arc, but I wonder how much they're using. That was definitely one of my favorite story arcs in comics and had lots of moments that I think could translate well onto the screen, like Fisk returning to New York and forcing the gangs into his rule and the Daredevil/Bullseye fight in the Fisk basement that ends in the double chokehold where Bullseye flinches first.

While I'm asking, since there are knowledgeable comic newstypes about, has Vol. 3 of the Miller Daredevil Visionaries thing come out yet? I'm guessing that has the Stick/Stone Hand stuff in it, and I'd love to read those again.

Yep. The same thing I said when Billy Dee played Harvey Dent in the first Bat movie.

Hey, I won't stand for people...

-bashing any movie starring Ben "Action" Affleck
-bashing any comic adaption where they change a character's race (as long as they keep it consistent)
-Bullseye

I like the costume!



It's Matrix-style... DID YOU THINK HE'D BE WEARING A BULLSEYE FACE MASK OR BLACK & WHITE BODYSUIT?

NO!

This is a comic book movie...not a comic book. And it's gonna kick ass! The Daredevil trailer's attached to Minority Report, so see it early and often!

that's like having James Earl Jones playing Lex Luthor in the first superman...great actor, but wrong race for the part...or having Billy Dee Williams play the Green Goblin in Spider-Man...

true, there aren't enough black characters in comics [Black Vulcan doesn't count, and neither to any characters whos name begins with "Black"], but just changing the story doesn't work for me...

He looks like Genghis Khan without the Fu Manchu but every comic book movie has to be different because some things don't translate from paper to the big screen.

BTW to the writers/producers of X2 please have more ICEMAN......please!!

I'm all for changing things to fit into a movie (Wolverine in Yellow Spandex would have been quite scary.) but that's just lame!

This is one of the few situations where I would rather see the mask with a bullseye on it and I hate that mask! Bullseye's costume is one of my most hated villian get-ups ever.

Sorry I'm so late to this thread. I was out of the loop yesterday.

Anyway, Click Here for the Kingpin photo.

He looks like the world's biggest, most dangerous pimp. It's pretty laughable. All he needs is a floppy hat.

And I blame the X-Men movie for Bullseye's stupid look.

I can kind of get into Duncan as the Kingpin. I think how the look will work hinges on how he ends up playing the character - if he goes for the reserved, cerebral businessman pulling the strings character that the Kingpin usually was, I think the look would eventually come together. The cigar doesn't look right, though.

Still can't get around that bizarre Bullseye photo, though. When they decided to use the red suit for Daredevil, any problems with using a black/blue and white suit for Bullseye based on "it wouldn't look right in a movie" would seemingly have gone out the window. If one guy in a movie is doing backflips on a rooftop wearing a red bodysuit with horns on his mask, I don't think having a guy in a black suit with white gloves and boots is any more out there. So now Daredevil is the only character with something resembling a traditional comic book costume...seems kinda odd.

And man, had they kept him around, Billy Dee Williams would have been a much better Two-Face than Tommy Lee Jones was.

I totally agree with you on all counts. Every time I see that cigar, though, I can't help but hear MCD say "All it took was a phat chronic blunt" in his "beefy" voice.

When Batman first premiered, that was one of the things I was totally excited about -- Billy Dee playing Two-Face. It's a shame the films opted to go the homoerotic route when they finally got around to the character (I'm saying the movies were, not the character).

Let the unimaginative malt liquor jokes begin (please don't).

Yeah, and that must be one giant cigar, too, because he's a pretty big guy in the first place. Didn't the Kingpin usually have one of those old-style cigarette holders? Maybe not, I can't remember. That would probably look equally out of place, anyway.

Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey were just completely wrong for their parts in Batman Forever. Well, they were right, I guess, because they were awful in a movie where the charaters were written awful with awful direction and costuming and everything else. But they were still wrong. I don't know what the point of having two villains was when they both played it crazy, instead of having at least one of them be the serious villain. Of course, they should have been able to get an entire movie out of Harvey Dent becoming Two-Face alone with better casting. And better writing. And a different director. Ah well.

Are there pics out of the Elektra/Daredevil costumes? Does anyone have a link?

Put me in the camp of the "anti-Bullseye outfit" group. I think the bald guy with goatee look has run its course (not a slight at Stone Cold).
