“Inception” is the kind of movie you needed to devote your undivided attention to keep up with. With so much going on, many people missed the carefully chosen costumes. Each outfit was chosen by the design team for the specific character, with the intention of highlighting the character’s personality.
Some of these costumes even had clues to help viewers understand what was going on, but with so much going on, these choices were overlooked.
Rachel Chu - Crazy Rich Asians
This film may not have focused on costume design, considering it was a comedy, but it managed to produce some serious fashion moments. One of the most stand-out moments was seeing Rachel Chu's blue gown. The dress looked like it was out of a Disney fairytale, and made quite an impression in the fashion world.
The gown caused minor controversy with its see-through chest area but managed to inspire many around the world.
Catwoman - Batman Returns
Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman is widely thought of as one of the best-ever portrayals of the character. Years later, she explained that it was the most uncomfortable costume she had ever worn. The process of getting her in the suit was a hard one; they had to powder her down, help her inside, and then vacuum-pack the suit.
For all future actresses portraying Catwoman, she advises them to make sure that while designing the costume, they consider how the actresses will be able to access the bathroom.
Green Lantern - Green Lantern
There is a lot to be said about the controversy in "Green Lantern." As you may have already guessed, one of the biggest issues was with the hero's costume. The filmmakers wanted to try something groundbreaking, but quickly realized they might have made a mistake.
The film's design team decided to go full CGI (computer-graphics imagery), and it was undeniable from the moment we set eyes on Ryan Reynolds on-screen. Reynolds even discussed the issue, saying he hated wearing the bodysuit that made his costume so famous.
Captain Marvel - Captain Marvel
Marvel fans waited for Captain Marvel to be introduced into the MCU for a long time. After all, she is one of the most dominant superheroes in the Marvel world. But when actress Brie Larson was seen in a green costume, fans were quick to make sure they disapproved of the costume choice.
Ultimately, Captain Marvel would wear the classic blue, red, and gold costume. To calm Marvel fans down, filmmakers quickly explained the green costume seen in the behind-the-scenes photo. The character was first in a green uniform like the one seen, and later switched colors.
