Better designs and varying colours do not have to be exact duplicates of the comics but that doesn't stop it from working well on screen.
I find that the suits work best when there's only a single superhero - that's why it works with Spider-Man and Batman and Daredevil in their respective movies.

But having a huge team, all with customized costumes, would be visual clutter, and detract from the other visuals of the story.
