Of course, I'd love her to be wearing high heeled boots as well, but I'm guessing that will be viewed as impractical in a dystopia.

I can't see your pics in my browser, so I can't comment on the comparison
That said, her general look in x2 or x3 is vastly superior to the pic posted on twitter

But I'm not disrespecting anyone's opinions, I just really am failing to understand how everyone here is so excited about these pics.

Underwhelmed pretty much sums me up to a tee
I don't hate it, it's just bleh


It's actually making me feel kinda crazy, like I just mentally cannot comprehend the excitement over this pic
I came here fully expecting everyone to be unanimous in their hatred when I saw it this morning

Like I said
I don't hate anything, per se
I just thinks it's very plain
and her hair looks silly

underwhelming is really an understatement


and no no, I know better than to read the comments at CBM, that's why I like people here!

I wouldn't say Storm's new costume is a step up or down. I'd say it's about equal on meh-o-scale for me. It's still pretty bland.

Though I think Halle's hair does look better than it has been in previous movies. She herself is looking great though.

Many probably thought we would get a costume that looked right out the comics, well dream on people

Storm had the most comic accurate costume to begin with though, so it's kind of disappointing that they're going away from that
nobody was expecting the whole black-bikini-cape-and-tiara deal

If anyone seriously thought that then they probably weren't following this film much and/or hadn't seen the previous films.

I don't think so. Surely most realize this is a post-apocalyptic/dystopian world.

To those who complain about the lack of color or the plain look of the costume - these characters are part of a dystopian future where mutants are being hunted and killed on a daily basis. To have any of those suits from the comics sounds beyond ridiculous. It's enough colorful and comicbooky as it is with all their different super-powers, haircuts, capes and whatnot. I'm not trying to purposely hate on the comicbook costumes, I just think they would look silly in the context of a live-action movie, and this movie in particular. I know you all want to see yellow spandex on Wolverine and so on, but this is not the 90's. These things need to serve the story.

Have you read Days of Future Past? It's pretty absurd that you're using comic book accuracy as a basis, and then complaining that the uniforms are too plain, when Storm's comic accurate Days of Future Past uniform is a green prison jumpsuit. In a sentinel overrun dystopian future, why would you ever expect Storm to be running around in a flashy black leather uniform?

wow, people so touchy, never called anybody an idiot for liking them, i just don't get it

in fact I'm the one being called absurd and ridiculous

and I'm not saying storm or anyone else should be in their spandex
but even for the "post-apocolyptic future" look, these outfits are generic and bland

if anything, I'd rather see their old costumes, just beat to s**t
look to the intro of the Wolverine video game that came out a couple years back for how to do it right
Bobby's suit looks like it may be going that way, and I thought the pic of him was great

I hope she has wedge-heeled boots to add height, as they won't use stiletto heels

No, you're the one who basically called everyone delusional sheep for liking it.

I hope this isn't the final version, I think it looks like it needs some editing. Cape can be a little longer, some accessories can be added like lightning earrings and she could show some cleavage for god's sake. But overall I think it looks promising.

Your logic is what is being called into question, not you. As much as you don't get Storm's uniform, I don't get how you can say Storm's look is too plain and then reference this as how to do it right:





Still looks pretty plain to me.

Wouldn't be surprised if her hair is almost faux-hawky from the profile. At least this time it seems white with a touch of grey rather than grey with a touch of black (x3).
