Ironhead Studio has been creating superhero costumes for decades – which includes work for the X-Men movies, Batman movies, the Daredevil series, the upcoming Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Batman v Superman, Captain America: Civil War, and more. Unfortunately, Jose Fernandez hardly ever gets any credit for his work.
