In “Captain America: The First Avenger,” the designers did an excellent job presenting moviegoers with the traditional costume. That being said, when the “Avengers” film was released, fans noticed something different. The costume had changed and was a little over the top.
The colors were too bright, and the mask was connected to the uniform instead of being a separate piece. This resulted in a pretty cheesy costume. The designers defended their decision by explaining that they wanted to give the audience a more traditional superhero. Obviously, it didn’t work, and in the following movies, they went for a more subtle look.
The Amazons - Justice League
A big part of "Wonder Woman" was the Amazons. Unfortunately, the costumes were altered a bit when the filming of the "Justice League" began.
It seemed like the outfits were less efficient when it came to combat, but the filmmakers defended their choice by saying that the suits from "Wonder Woman" to "Justice League" were different because they took place at a different time.
Silk Spectre - Watchmen
Her character in "Watchmen" may be named Silk Spectre, but Malin Akerman actually dons a bright yellow-and-black latex leotard. It doesn't look the most comfortable to act in, let alone fight in, and Akerman seems to agree. She revealed that the costumes were a big challenge, especially when she had to wear them for 18 hours straight.
She explained that the suit she wore took on the temperature of the room; if the room was hot, she was boiling, and when the room was cold, she was freezing.
Hermione - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Hermione wore a pink dress to The Yule Ball in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." And though this may seem completely innocent, fans of the franchise were not happy. In the book, Hermione's gown was periwinkle blue, so to many, the pink version was out of character.
The film's costume designer begged to differ; in her opinion, Hermione was a tough girl, the kind that hangs out with boys. Her appearance at The Yule Ball was the first time people looked at her as a girl, which was not established before.
Joker - Joker
Making an iconic character your own is hard, especially when they've been reimagined several times before. The costume designers on the 2019 film set, "Joker," know this problem all too well. Their outfit choices started a dispute for the fans who waited in anticipation for the film.
As we all know, the Joker is known for his purple and green combination set, but in the 2019 film, it was nowhere to be found. The designer defended their decisions by explaining that they wanted this version of the film to differ from the rest and give it a 1970s feel.
