Why the costumes of superhero comic accurate they only make brief cameos in the MCU?


The costumes of the superhero movies have not been accurate for the versions of the comics for years. The Superman original 1978 Christopher Reeve scored one of the few times that a costume film felt much like the comics. Four words: nipples on the costume of a bat.

Marvel Cinematic Universe has been pretty smart in the way he wears costumes that look like versions of comic books: they make ‘cameo’ fast, as the disguise of Scarlet Witch that appears in a shot of the preview WandaVision.

The theme of the costumes of superheroes emerged on Reddit, where a fan posted three photos of costumes in the MCU that actually seemed to versions comic: the attire of WandaVision, Power Man of the series from Netflix and the outfit star-spangled Captain America in The First Avenger.

Fans pointed out that the outfit basic Spider-Man looks comic accurate. However, thanks to Stark Industries, even the costume of Spidey has a life of its own with all of your devices.

Cost ”(director Sam) Raimi and the costume of Spiderman (Marc) Webb are 1 to 1 with the comics. Raimi nailed it so much that Webb made changes for the sake of the changes to the first suit, “ said one fan, referring to previous movies of Spider-Man which were not part of the MCU.

Another fan said: “Personally, I don’t need precision comic. While the character is reconociblemente he / she is, I agree with that. In some cases, not to go comic accurate is better. A great example of this is Captain America. It was a choice so inspired by The First Avenger wear your aspect comic accurate when it is only a child / pet poster, and then move on to something closer to the attire of a soldier when he joins officially to the fight. Cap is a soldier. Is dress like a soldier.

Examples of the changes from comic to film.

The first movie of X-Men in 2000 was what really kicked off the wave of films of superheroes that even extends by Hollywood, and that movie really laughed at the printed versions of the costumes. Simply would not be enough for Hugh Jackman parade with a tight spandex yellow, so that it gets a stylish dark suit.

The general concept seems to be that what looks good in the comics looks stupid in the movies. Aquaman is one of the transformations most extreme of the page to the screen.

For years, people pointed and laughed at her orange Super Friends wake up, so it had a completely different look and feel, more in line with Jason Momoa in the film of 2018.

Why are the costumes of the movies differ from the comics?

The question of why the costumes in the movie differ from the costumes of books was addressed in a discussion of Stack Exchange. A person pointed out that, for very “iconic” may be some costumes in the comic, sometimes change in the books more than they do in the movies.

“Finally, while it may be right to say that the suit’s blue and yellow Wolverine is” iconic “, it is not his only costume, and has changed several times since its first appearance in 1974,” said the fan.

It could also be something as simple as changing the times. When it was introduced to Supergirl on the page, his classic costume was spandex tight with a mini-skirt with red very short. The 1984 movie acceded to this aspect, but when the current series of WB introduced this costume in the first season, he was treated as a joke, and Kara said that might not be able to use something so low.

Seasons later kept the skirt, but I gave Kara a costume similar to that of Man of Steel. The suit was remade again in the current season, with sports socks Supergirl in place of the skirt.
