The Best Superhero Costumes in Film

It’s hard to imagine now, but there once was a time when George Clooney’s career wasn’t flourishing. His movie career anyway. In the mid to late 90s, Clooney appeared as Dr. Ross on tens of millions of television sets every Thursday on the hit NBC drama ER. Many attributed the success of the show to his appeal. But while his television career was at a peak, his film career suffered some missteps. Sure, he was the star of Steven Soderbergh’s wildly acclaimed crime romance Out of Sight in 1998, but the year before that, Clooney was the star of one of the biggest misfires in recent memory: Batman & Robin. It wasn’t Clooney’s fault, per se, that the film tanked with critics and film historians. If anything, it was because of the person who tailored his Batman suit.

Spider-mans is awesome in the movie, but seeing it out of the movie it looks terrible lol

I would also put Thor and Black Widow on there, I like their costumes.

I like Black Widow's costume for a...variety of reasons. Two to be exact.

why black widow? Her costume is just generic black leather!

I guess the person wearing it really helps the design ;)

But her hair and everything goes with the costume, not just the leather. I have a character of my own with a similar look, so I have an appeal to it.

Presently nothing beats the variety of Iron Man costumes.

The Captain America costume comes a close second.

Sam Raimi's Spiderman films have the best costume in my opinion. The amazing spiderman was a good film but the costume just didn't cut it for me personally.

I agree Ironman was done right as well.

Spiderman + Venom is my favorite.
