10 Superhero Movie Costumes That Look Nothing
Like The Comics Now more than ever, our favorite comic book
characters can be seen on the big screen. But they might not look exactly how you remember
them. When superheroes and super villains go from
page to screen, sometimes they lose a few iconic costume pieces along the way. And other times they just look nothing like
their comic book counterparts. Whether you think these costumes are a modern
upgrade or a totally unnecessary change to a classic character, here are 10 Superhero
Movie Costumes That Look Nothing Like The Comics. Wolverine
There’s no question that, out of all the X-Men, Wolverine has one of the most recognizable
costumes. But yellow spandex is great in theory… and
not so much in practice. In the 2000 film X-Men, director Bryan Singer
did away with the classic yellow-and blue look, and opted for a less flashy black leather
suit for Wolverine and the rest of his team. Most of the other X-Men movies to date have
stuck with a more dressed-down Logan, although a deleted scene from The Wolverine did show
a glimpse of Wolverine’s mask from the comics. Hugh Jackman may not wear Wolverine’s signature
cowl,…but at least he has Logan’s goofy haircut. Rhino
Sometimes comic book movies tweak a costume slightly… and sometimes they just go in
a completely different direction. That was the case with the villain Rhino in
the 2014 film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The Spider-Man movies have burned through
a lot of Spidey’s classic foes by now, but Rhino is probably the most different in his
big screen debut. In the comics, Rhino is powered by mutagenic
chemicals and gamma radiation, giving him super strength and durability, and on top
of it all he wears an impenetrable rhino-themed suit. But in the movie, he’s more of an ordinary
guy controlling a rhino-themed robot, similar to the Ultimate Spider-Man version of the
character. And he’s still no match for
Peter Parker. Catwoman
There have been several Catwomen on film, all with varying degrees of costume accuracy. Michelle Pfeiffer from the 1992 film Batman
Returns wears a pretty close copy of the leather cat suit from the comics, with a few more
stitches thrown in there. Anne Hathaway from The Dark Knight Rises looks
pretty close, too, even though her cat ears are actually goggles. But Halle Berry’s Catwoman from Catwoman
is just a mess. She has the cat ears, but after that it’s
pretty much leather underwear. Catwoman might have sex appeal in the comics,
but she’s usually just a bit more covered up. Or, at least, she doesn’t have all those
useless leather straps hanging around. Baron Zemo
Now here’s a villain who’s just about as different as you can get. In the comics, there are two Baron Zemos,
a father and son, and both rock a funky purple ensemble. Baron Helmut Zemo is a major Captain America
villain, known for his signature purple mask, which only shows his eyes. The recent film Captain America: Civil War
went in a completely different direction, though, making Zemo look like an ordinary
guy with brown hair, no mask, and no particular supervillain costume. It makes sense for the heavily modified version
of the character, with a different backstory and motivation. But it’s not nearly so creepy as the classic
Zemo get-up. Mystique
Somewhere in the process of that first X-Men movie, back in 2000, someone decided that
Mystique should be naked and covered in lizard scales. She’s still blue, just like in the comics…
but in the comic book Mystique is usually wearing some degree of clothing. And she’s never drawn with all those scales. Maybe the textured look popped more on camera,
and her lack of clothes does make a certain amount of sense given her shape-shifting abilities. But it’s safe to say that she looks very,
very different from her comic book self. And she’s definitely never seen in her signature
white costume. Hawkeye
Hawkeye may have started out as a villain in the ‘60s, but he’s gone on to become
one of the most recognizable Avengers. The Hawkeye we see in the Marvel Cinematic
Universe, however, is quite a bit different from the Hawkeye of the comics. In Marvel comics, Hawkeye is decked out in
a purple suit and mask, with an “H” on his head. In the Avengers films, however, Hawkeye goes
without the mask, wearing all black or a dark colored vest. To be fair, the cinematic look is much less
distracting for an archer who relies on stealth. Scarlet Witch
Sometimes, a fancy costume just doesn’t make sense within the context of the movie. With Wanda Maximoff, in Avengers: Age of Ultron
and Captain America: Civil War, there isn’t much of an opportunity for her to get all
dolled up in a red leotard and headpiece. But in the comics, Scarlet Witch has a much
more glamorous look, with her scarlet body suits, cape, and crown. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Wanda has
to make do with her red jacket and black dress. It’s definitely a more casual look, but
probably a lot more comfortable. Deadpool
The 2016 Deadpool movie has impressed fans with its faithful interpretation of the character. But let’s not forget that Ryan Reynolds
first made his debut as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009. And that version of Deadpool looked nothing
like the Merc with the Mouth we all know and love. The X-Men Origins Deadpool didn’t have his
iconic red suit, his powers were pretty much random, and his mouth was sewn shut. All in all, he looked nothing like Deadpool
of the comics—at least not until he got his own movie. Harley Quinn
Few comic book characters have had their wardrobes as thoroughly scrutinized as Harley Quinn
has had. Though her iconic suit does get a nod in the
film, fans were surprised to see that her main outfit in Suicide Squad was such a departure
from her classic jester costume. For the most part, she wears a t-shirt and
hot pants. Of course, even comic book Harley has been
drawn in increasingly skimpy outfits over the years. And we can only assume her t-shirt is a lot
more comfortable for stunts than a jester-style corset would be. Those are just a few of the superhero movie
costumes that look nothing like the comics. Can you think of any more? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget
