To change iconic costumes that millions of people grew up with was a bold move. For some reason, Disney keeps making the same old mistake, and “Aladdin” was no different. The costume designers decided to more appropriately clothe each of the main characters for a 2019 film.
This meant that Aladdin wasn’t running around with a vest and no shirt, and Jasmine would cover up her midriff, and the audiences were upset. You don’t mess with classical Disney!
Cinderella - Cinderella
One of the first live-action renditions of Disney classics, the ever-so-innocent "Cinderella," got some backlash when it came to the costumes. Critics and fans slammed the film for slimming Lily James's waist. The filmmakers were quick to respond, letting everyone know nothing of the sort had been done; the actress simply had a very slim waist.
That, and the fact that she wore a corset throughout filming, made James's waist look extremely thin.
Judge Dredd - Judge Dredd
There were many reasons why "Judge Dredd" wasn't a successful film. From the casting to the script and direction, there was something off about the movie. For comic book fans, the inability of the costumes to stick to the original plot was the straw that broke the camel's back and may have been the most controversial thing about the film.
Judge Dredd never takes his helmet off in the comic book, but lo and behold, in the film, the helmet came off very quickly. Most blame Sylvester Stallone, known for being a demanding actor, who asked for all these changes, including the costume.
Black Widow - The Avengers
During the press tour for "The Avengers," Scarlett Johansson spilled details about her super-tight suit. She explained that it was boiling inside the costume and that she had nothing underneath it. She was straightforward about hating the Black Widow costume from the get-go.
She spoke of the costume, "I mean, who wants to get into something like that? You just think, ‘Oh God, really? Couldn’t it have, like, I don’t know, some sort of a peplum skirt or something?’"
Superman - Man of Steel
With the revival of Superman in "Man of Steel," everyone's favorite superhero took on a darker vibe. Costume designers made a few unexpected tweaks to the iconic costume. Muting the colors and getting rid of Superman's famous underwear left some fans feeling upset.
The filmmakers had a good reason for these changes; they wanted the uniform to be cohesive with Superman's new image, and to stir up a little controversy on the way!
