I love LOVE DD, I HATE this costume. To me it's like "why?" Why red boots and red hand wraps? He's blind, and who is wrapping his hands each time he goes out as DD? His boots are too clunky. I get the team is trying to pay homage to his boxing background, but it is a huge miss for me. Plus, what is with the weird flame D? It is so cheesy. Why mess with the classic all red? I get going all black, but this mix is just too cutesy and doesn't seem functional or realistic at all. Why??.?.???.?.
It is hard to capture the essence of a well loved character and tell a decent story in 110 minutes. The mc is trying to sell to everyone, so they must always start from the beginning so the people who don't follow the characters religiously still have a mist of who they are. These movies never seem to get past the infantile stage for me, except maybe with the dark knight trilogy.
