Unlike any other genre out there, when it comes to comic book movies, costumes are an integral part of it all. Aside from the story, character development and all that, superheroes suits take some serious time in designing. They not only have to pay great respect to the comic book version, but they have to fit what kind of story the character is going through or even what kind of character the superhero is becoming. Yeah, of course it’s got to look just badass in every way possible, but there’s much more to the kind of design that’s ultimately chosen to be used for that movie.
One of the biggest superheroes (and my personal favorite) on the big screen these days is Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America (played by Chris Evans). Through four movies so far (and filming the fifth), we’ve seen Cap’s uniform go through some pretty major changes. From the World War II version to the modern day Stealth Suit, there’s been many variations of Cap’s suits with all kind of cool tricks.
But of course, not every suit can be the favorite… You may like them all, yes, but one has to stand above them all. Is it his first ever suit? Or maybe his latest from Avengers: Age of Ultron? Let me know below as I ask you all the difficult question, which Captain America suit is your favorite?
Personally, I pretty much love them all except the spandex version from The Avengers. They all bring some very cool and different looks to the character, while all very much fitting what kind of things Cap was getting into while wearing that specific suit.
But what is my favorite? Let me just say that it was an INCREDIBLY hard choice, but ultimately I decided that the Stark funded uniform from Avengers: Age of Ultron slightly edges out his stealth suit from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. They are both phenomenal, they really are, but there is something about his Avengers 2.0 uniform from Age of Ultron that just catches my eye more than the rest. Joss Whedon and his team did a fantastic job of designing this suit with glimpses of both his original WWII suit, as well as the stealth suit from The Winter Solider. But my favorite aspect of the suit might be how Whedon went about Cap’s colors, giving his red, white and blue a much more darker feel this time around.
I’m happy to see that Captain America: Civil War will have Cap wearing a very similar suit to the one from Age of Ultron, just with a little Russo Brothers twist. Now that I know which suit is your favorite, why is it your favorite? Why is your least favorite your least favorite? What kind of suit would you like to see Cap don in the future?
