    Costume is on. From the link I previously posted. Heres Mike:

    "I'll say it this way. The writers have been very clever and very on point with the way they allowed this to be grounded in realism [while] paying homage to the comic book and what comic book fans know to be their world. We're trying to bring it to the screen. I think we're going to satisfy everyone. We're not going to give them exactly what they want, but I think everyone will be ecstatic about what we're willing to do for them. We know what side our bread is buttered on. To try and not give the fans what they want would be a mistake;, that being said, it's going to be a unique way of delivering it. But they're going to get what they want eventually."

    I think "costume" is probably a stretch to describe whatever Cage will be wearing. To me a costume connotes a disguise of some type, Cage doesn't bother to hide his identity.

    He'll likely have some sort of outfit but I doubt it'll look that different from regular street-wear.

    Costumes don't have to be disguises. I can't think of the last Halloween costume I wore where people couldn't figure out who I was.

    You generally wear a costume to look like someone else. Otherwise it wouldn't be a costume at all.

    My point is Luke's outfit will probably just reflect a riff on how he'd normally dress.

    The image I posted on the last page taken from JJ of him in his yellow T is pretty Luke Cage in look but I wouldn't call that a costume.

    The original costume was designed to make him look like a superhero so people would hire him. That was the "someone else."

    I really, REALLY hope they don't even think about bringing back the tiara. The first black superhero to get a series which NOBODY will take seriously if they do that.

    We're getting a nod to the old school 70s look (hopefully it's just for that one episode).

    I'd prefer him to just wear regular street clothes but have yellow in almost every outfit in some way.
    Like he just has a fondness for the color.
    Sometimes a yellow shirt and sometimes much less, like the yellow lining of his hoodie in the trailer.
    Just always kind of there.

    Ah, so their homage to the 70's outfit comes from the experiment they did on him. Clever.

    You can see the inner lining of his hoodie is a bright yellow. That's the other homage to his costume.

    Basically, his hoodie is his cape and cowl for the show.

    His costume is merely coming in the form of the hoodie that has the bright yellow in it. Or the way he comes out of the experiment with the bracelets and headband, which were shackles from the tank, but they come out as visual references to his costume from the comics.

    Yep. Misty Knight in flares and platform shoes too, and everyone with big collars and afros.

    They should've gotten Lalo Schiffrin for the soundtrack. He could've composed something similar to Enter the Dragon.

    Maybe that'd be a better fit for Iron Fist? Is Schifrin still working these days? He seems to be slowing down as of late. He is 84.

    I wasn't even sure if he was still alive. They should get him if we do get a Power Man and Iron Fist combined season 2. But when do Marvel ever get these really iconic composers?

    Silvestri did First Avenger and The Avengers. His Avengers score IMHO is still the single-best MCU score to date. But that's a little a off track here.

    Schiffrin'S one of my all-time favourite composers - something like his EtD score would fit Iron Fist to T and make it so much cooler [if that's even possible].

    In terms of Luke's costume, did anyone catch the nod to his old metal headband in the trailer? Could've sworn that the helmet Luke has on in the tank gets damaged and the remains of it look like the headband in that shot after he gets out. EDIT: ignore me - the nod [with the headband and gauntlets] is absolutely obvious - so of course you all caught it.

    now the question is does he discard the headband and bracelets or does he keep them in hidden in a trunk as mementos?

    Why didn't they have a chain belt for him to use too? Surely he can bring out the headband, bracelets and chain belt for an encore. Maybe for the Defenders? Enough of wearing this hoodie. I bet Iron Fist is going to probably just have a hoodie as well instead of his classic costume.

    I really am glad that they most likely aren't going to do as you say. The tiara stuff is outdated and needs to remain a thing of the 70s, only getting a nod as a minor easter egg like what was in the trailer. Luke's hoodie is perfect for someone who is going to be a community hero.

    I don't see how this somehow informs Iron Fist's costume either.

    Well let's face it, the Netflix shows aren't big on embracing the costumes. Daredevil didn't get his actual costume until the very end of the first season. Same thing for The Punisher.

    Having to wait an entire season for a suit doesn't equate to not using the suit at all. Sure we had to wait 13 episodes for Daredevil's suit, but he did end up getting it and using it throughout Season 2. Unfortunately, we'll probably have Danny Rand in his hobo gear for a good chunk of Iron Fist, but that doesn't mean he won't get a costume and just have a hoodie (particularily with Dark Raven's implication that it's related to Luke not getting a costume as well, which is something that doesn't fit his character and is heavily outdated).

    Jeph Loeb's line of thinking is most likely having the first seasons be the origins of the characters, and by the end embracing their comic personas, with the Defenders having them suited up.

    Keep in mind, we got some take on the suit in Daredevil. I certainly wouldn't call it the most authentic version.

    I think they can get away a bit more with the Power Man outfit than they claim. The key is that, even in the comics, it was acknowledged as cheesy. The whole point was superheroes wore costumes so, if he wanted to be a superhero for hire, he had to come up with a cheesy costume to sell the role.
