BUZZ News Shorts: Luke Cage, SHIELD, X-Men, Once Upon A Time & More

quake _concept_art••• Oddly, Marvel has released concept art of Daisy’s new costume in Agents Of SHIELD a day after releasing the promo images (see here). More interestingly there are also some new comments from costume designer Ann Foley: “Chloe looks incredible and feels empowered in it. She loves wearing her Quake costume and if she had her way, she’d probably wear it all the time. I think one of the most important things was that the [Quake] symbol be incorporated into her costume, but especially onto the gauntlets. And it’s also on the back of her suit, which was a fun little touch that we added. As far as the silhouette, we wanted to stay true to the comics and pay tribute to those original designs. I also wanted to incorporate the gold colour that I’ve seen in some of the illustrations of her suit throughout the comics, which is why we have the gold lines that we see on the suit.” Click on the image for a larger version.
