With them not being a proper team, I don't think they do want them all uniform. Just some of them. The new mutants stand out like a sore thumb. Rogue doesn't so much compared to them.

Singer did say the team is shattered these days, so it makes sense all their suits don't match exactly. And Rogue's and the new mutants don't match at all. They've all come together because they had to, not because they're actual X-Men anymore.

Having Rogue not having a suit actually illustrates that she isn't part of the core anymore. That she's had a separate life for however long. And it reminds us she was a prisoner (seemingly). Bobby matches more with Kitty now, and him and Rogue have no matching style. It's symbolic and practical to the plot.

First, it's newsflash. Second, getting all nitpicky like "we only saw her neck, there's no way to tell!" when it's clearly the same outfit from the only two times we see her, is ridiculous and petty. Like I said, you want to discuss the costumes as a whole, fine, but saying stuff like Rogue has to get a costume change or else it will be a waste is petty and nitpicky, no matter how you want to dress it up.

I agree M-BOOTY.

The potential was always there for Halle to at least look like a realistic Storm. They clearly were following the comics for inspiration in X1, so they were on the right track. Then--for whatever stupid-ass reason--they decided to Americanize her big time (which caused the drop of accent and introduced the Soccer-Mom look hairstyles) and I believe a lot got lost in the translation.

When I saw Storm ride the winds out of that Statue Of Liberty elevator, I remember thinking "OMG, that's Storm!" Now, all I see is Halle Berry in a white wig. It's sad.

No they don't. Their costumes are mostly black. Of course not every detail is similar to the other costume, but if this was a collection for a fashion show, it looks like they came from 1 cohesive collection.

They don't match at all. Only Bishop is in black. He looks similar to the X-Men. Blink and Sunspot are in a darker shade but it's not black and they have more colour. Warpath as well.

Well, it should be clear by now with how Singer has described them that was done for a reason. They're not a team and not X-Men, they're just a band of survivors trying to live in this world where they could be hunted down and killed at any moment by Sentinels. Coordinating their outfits is likely the last thing on their minds.

And yet the looks of costumes of Wolverine, Storm, Magneto, Professor X, etc... looks so similar. This is not even about X-Men having costumes, its about mutants from the future having the same style of costumes.

If you don't think the costume designer didn't think about that, we would be seeing Storm wearing a white ensemble, Wolverine in his daily clothes, Professor X in a suit, etc....

That is to illustrate that Professor X, Magneto, Wolverine, Storm, Colossus, Iceman and Kitty are an unofficial form of the X-Men these days. Plus the suits are good for combat.

The new mutants and Rogue having different costumes shows that they're working with the others not because they're unofficial X-Men but because they have to for survival. They aren't part of the core. Rogue may not have been an official or unofficial X-Men member since she got the cure in X3. We don't know. We only know it's looking almost certain she's been away from them for a period of time. Whether in the mutant internment camp or even before that. She has a jumpsuit because it shows where her character has been and it makes sense to the plot. With the limited amount of time she has in the story I doubt she changes clothes. But we'll see.

Really? Do Magneto really need a cape, it does not even look magnetic.

Obviously these costumes are made for style and so these mutants would look more visually appealing.

If they are mutants in real life, do you think they will wear outfits like the X-Men are wearing? Obviously not.

Magnetos costume is like 90% accurate and looks awesome. With some people (not here just in general) the costumes even if 100% accuracte will never be good enough for them.

They're more suitable in a combat situation that brightly coloured suits

They have an air of SWAT team apparel.

But still they wouldn't use costumes like what these characters are wearing in the movie.

This movie is pure fiction, if they want a character to suddenly have a costume, they can do it right away without giving much explanation to it. 70s Magneto has a new costume, whats your explanation for that? Whats your explanation for Magneto suddenly appearing at the end of First Class with cape and a newly painted helmet? So your reasoning of "Rogue doesn't wear armored up because they have no time for that and they are in the middle of the war" "they are no X-Men, therefore its not really necessary for them to look uniform" don't really make sense.

They had access to those costume's. Rogue is very unlikely to have access to a black suit that would fit. We've seen she is still wearing the jumpsuit in the temple. She probably doesn't get changed. There is no reason for her to. Not unless the gloves aren't detachable and then she would have to change into something that would leave her hands free. She'll need that to absorb from Kitty and to use her powers on Wolverine.

But we have no evidence she has a black suit at any point. And it's not a big deal if she doesn't. It's not like they're classic Rogue attire, so I don't see why it matters if she doesn't match. She's had a different path to the others in recent times, if not over the last decade. I really don't care if she stays in the jumpsuit. It looks fine. If she changes, I'm fine with that as well. So long as she gets good scenes she could wear a nappy for all I care.

If there is an end altered future scene I expect we'll see her in something different then.

Yeah because they have to order a costume from a special clothing company first before Rogue gets her costume and that will take 1 week.

Again, if they want these characters to wear certain costumes, they will do it.

And yes, its not that a big deal if she doesn't have a costume similar to the other mutants. But I'm just saying that, visually, it would be better if she/Shadowcat has a costume similar to the other mutants so they would look cohesive and more appealing. I don't know why you argued with that in the first place and brought up this "they don't have time for giving Rogue a new costume because they are in the middle of the war" non-sense.

"Rogue, we're breaking you out of this prison camp because we're in the middle of a plan to change the past that will hopefully fix everything and it involves Kitty using her power on Logan, but she's fading and we need you to take her power and finish the mission. But before we can let you do it, you have to change your clothes so you look more cohesive with the rest of us."

And don't give this "it's fiction, they can do what they want" nonsense. Any writer, director, etc. will tell you that, even when doing fiction, you have to make and follow rules to the world you're building, because if you don't, it won't work. Singer has even said something along those lines during the course of making this film. With the world that Singer has created, from the very first film, brightly colored costumes, will not work, and with how this dysotopian future is being presented, forcing everyone to look cohesive when they're just scraping to get by, doesn't either. That is a fact.

Kitty does some somewhat similar to the others. Rogue doesn't because she hasn't been around them. It's plot dictated and that is why I have no problem with her being in the jumpsuit for her scenes.

This hair is....not great. The length and color are perfect but the styling is just all wrong. It makes her look like a grandma, plus it just looks outdated.

I personally loved Storm's hair in X3, it was cute, stylish, modern and fit her face. If they are going to go with a longer cut it needs to be styled significantly better than above.

Whatever you want to say xDOFPx. They don't have to be with the rest of the mutants for a long time to get a costume. Wolverine was very new to the X-Men and he was given a uniform/costume when they saved Rogue in Liberty City.

They are armor up when they are in battlefield or they wear it since its a sign that they are official members of the team but since there's no X-Men in this movie, we could scratch that one.

If you think Rogue and Shadowcat won't join the action/fight Sentinels and they would just be guarding Wolverine's body or help Wolverine with something else, then sure, it makes why Shadowcat is wearing casual clothes and Rogue is still in prison clothes. But visually, like I said in my 1st post before I started arguing with you, its really much better, if we see Rogue and Shadowcat have a costume similar to Storm, Prof X, Magneto, etc. even if they aren't in the battle field. They don't have to make much sense, people could just see it "the rest are wearing armor black suits, and Rogue/Shadowcat just went along with the group".
