With "The Amazing Spider-Man" swinging into theaters, we rate the best and worst looks in movie superhero costumes - By Meriah Doty & Matt Whitfield – PowerPoint PPT presentation – PowerPoint PPT presentation
1 Fashion Report Card Superhero Style 2 SPIDER MAN Spider-Mans costume takes on the look of a second skin this time around. New Spidey Andrew Garfield admits it was not too useful when nature called but he otherwise seems proud to usher in a revamped suit with darker colors and more texture accentuating Peter Parkers slender frame in a way the comic books have always described. Photo by Columbia Pictures 3 BATMANThe Dark Knight RisesGrade BThis is a much-needed improvement from Clooney-era Batman who said the costume was so limiting he had to be wheeled out and propped up in it before reciting his lines on camera. This time Christian Bale has more movement... when its warm. When its cold the costume tightens and as Bale has said limits his breathing. Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures 4 BLACK WIDOWMarvels The AvengersGrade A-Black Widows zip-up onesie seems all about function in Joss Whedons Avengers. The Russian spy who kicks some serious booty was perhaps played a bit more sporty by Scarlett Johansson than her comic book counterpart Some comics showed Widow in a shiny jump suit with dramatic Elvira-like cleavage arguably a little more SM. Photo by Marvel 5 GREEN LANTERNGreen LanternGrade FThe makers of the Green Lanterns look thought itd be a great idea to dress Ryan Reynolds up in a suit with sensors and later digitally paint the finished costume onto his body. What was surely a boon to post-production specialists looking for work was a bust for audiences. The costume was widely criticized for looking too cartoonish and the film grossed less than 20 million Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures 6 CATWOMANThe Dark Knight RisesGrade AAnne Hathaway has proclaimed how difficult the cat suit was to wear but this is a case where the pain was worth it - for audiences at least. From the ears to the eye-mask to the thigh-high platform boots this Catwoman is tres chic! Photo by SplashNews 7 THORMarvels The AvengersGrade B-If you look closely you can see Chris Hemsworths getup was slightly tweaked for his ensemble appearance as Thor in The Avengers. Its a smidge more streamlined than his costume in the prior two Thor installments yet stays true to his status as a hammer-throwing warrior god. While regal the thick red billowing cape looks a lot like movie house curtains Photo by Marvel 8 THE GREEN HORNETThe Green HornetGrade C-Sometimes an outfit is only as good as the person wearing it. And while audiences love and accept Seth Rogen as a funny man the box office failure of The Green Hornet indicates not even the best tailor would have saved him from superhero ridicule.

But seriously like Thor Captain America got an update for Avengers mainly because he went from living in the 40s to fighting to save the world in present time.

Pictures 13 CATWOMAN Batman Returns Grade A Now this is fetish wear done well. Simply put its the perfect look for a lady on the prowl. Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures 14 SPIDER-MAN Spider-Man 3Grade B- Unlike Supermans tired ensemble Spideys suit is chic and practical thanks to its fashion-forward web applique and aerodynamic design. Photo by Columbia Pictures 15 ELEKTRA Elektra Grade C- For a superhero Elektra looks a lot like a down market Vegas showgirl in harem pants. High marks on color and low marks on just about everything else. Photo by 20th Century Fox 16 Photo by Universal Pictures THE HULK The HulkGrade D Violet capri pants on men are always a no-no even in San Francisco 17 DR. MANHATTANWatchmenGrade B Going au natural is always in style especially when youre blue buff and radioactive. Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures 18 STEELSteelGrade F Not nearly as laughable as the film itself Steels suit of armor looks like the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz gone feral. Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures 19 WOLVERINE X-Men Origins WolverineGrade A- Despite the fact that the hirsute hottie looks like he hit the sale rack at American Eagle his casually rugged outfit gets high marks for not being yet another boring bodysuit. Photo by 20th Century Fox 20 SUE STORM JOHNNY STORMFantastic Four Rise of the Silver SurferGrade D- The snooze-inducing Storm siblings resemble Sears catalog models sporting cut-rate Trekkie costumes. Photo by 20th Century Fox 21 BARBARELLABarbarellaGrade B Barbarella has the best accessories in the biz. From her lethal ray gun to her vinyl boots and out-of-this-world coif the space siren is undoubtedly well-equipped to battle Durand-Durand. 22 Article by Meriah Doty Matt Whitfield Music by U2
