Daredevil Reboot (TBA): Fan-Made Test Poster by PencilsAndNougats Daredevil Reboot (TBA): Fan-Made Test Poster by PencilsAndNougats
Directed By: N/A
Release Date: N/A
Starring: N/A
Synopsis: N/A

The planned Daredevil reboot has been one of my favorite subjects to be used in my frequent attempts in making a fan poster lately, and it's proven itself to be a tough subject, as those many attempts have all failed. (That, though, is also due to my lack of skills, and the planned movie's lack of available properties to be used for a poster.) But then, a few days ago, I finally managed to clear up those obstacles, and came up with the above poster, which style is semi-minimalistic. And for that, I kind of hate it - I personally think that a fan-made poster for an upcoming/imaginary movie should show the creator's interpretation of the movie itself, thus a minimalist style won't work well in my opinion; for an example, the above poster is heavy on silhouettes, and it doesn't show anything of my own visual ideas for the movie. (Although I've spent quite a time in making the manipulated image of the Daredevil used in that poster - the basis image is Spider-Man from a set photo of The Amazing Spider-Man - but, I ended up covering it in a silhouette.) Well, at least I've featured one big element in the poster that I really want to see in the reboot, which is the color yellow...and, that can both refer to the yellow costume the titular hero used in his first appearance, and the Daredevil: Yellow storyline, which is one of my favorite Daredevil stories of all - both elements which I think should make a heavy presence in the reboot. And then, you have the title, alongside the tagline, as well as the word Daredevil in the title spelled with Braille alphabets; the latter two I think perfectly emphasize the dimension of the hero as a blind character, which is the most prominent and unique element of the hero, in my opinion.

Created using Adobe Photoshop CS5. Comments, feedbacks, and critics will be greatly appreciated!

Personally, I love the simplicity of it. It reminds me of the newer Daredevil comics. Perfect poster for a reboot, in my opinion!

The use of Braille is absolutely genius.

Thanks! That's just an idea that first popped in my mind when I was about to create this poster, to be honest. :)

I love the braile concept. I disagree on the minimalsm though. If I were to remix it I'd fill the background with red and keep the braile and tagline. The tagline makes it obvious to fans while the braile gives it a sense of mystery to those unfamiliar with DD. I do love this though.

Thanks! I decided to go with yellow instead of red, since Daredevil's early years sees him donning the dominantly yellow costume (reflected in the early comics, and the Daredevil: Yellow storyline), and my personal wish is to see that part of the hero's journey to be the focus of the reboot. ;)
