    I always thought the black get-up looked better anyway.

    It looked cool for a slapped together outfit
    but it kinda came off as the producers being embarrassed of costumes, which carried over into Iron Fist never getting his proper costume

    at the very least, I liked it way more than anything DCTV has produced

    It was fine in the first season as a prototype outfit, but the writers and producers clearly hated costumes and didn't like shooting them.

    They probably even preferred his look when he was wearing Jessica Jones's scarf wrapped around his head in the Defenders to any kind of costume.

    Still irks me that Bullseye never got his own costme and don't get me started on Iron Fist. Great potential for costumes squandered.

    No offense to Wilson Bethel, but I think they went the most underwhelming route possible for Bullseye.

    He's currently starring in All Rise with Misty Knight so I don't think he'll be back for the MCU fortunately.

    Well I'm glad Simone Missick is still getting work at least.

    I wa so expecting Bullseye's Daredevil costume to become HIS costume ! :rage:
    I'm willing to pay to have a 4th and 5th season of Daredevil.
    Just thnking about Mysterio, Dr Strange, Black widow possibilities drives me nuts.

    Yes, they could have easily just had him file off the horns, spraypaint the whole thing black and paint on the bullseye on the fiorehead. Then Matt could have got a slick new costume.

    They wouldn't have done that though, because then both Bullseye and DD would have black costumes which would be visually harder to distinguish in action scenes. Also, Poindexter seemed so unhinged that it didn't seem as if he would even take the trouble to spray paint any costume.

    And also Matt would have to go through an arc where he feels he's at a place to wear a new and red costume again instead of wearing the proto black costume. There didn't seem enough time to do all of that with everything else going on, especially with how slowly Netflix series usually progress.

    They wrote themselves into a corner with the way they set everything up that they were stuck with whatever costume they started with in this season. Plus they wouldn't have bothered to spend any budget giving DD a new costume or spraying the red one black for Bullseye.

    I disagree. With a new season going on ? Plenty of time to have bullseye slowly spinning dow and prepare his revenge while Matt goes back to the top. In red ! And when he's at the pick of everything, Karen dies.Bam. I see no problem at all.
