    And in the movies, Vision flies basically the same way Superman does.

    Not sure why making a costume more "cinematic" automatically means adding random crap to its basic design. What's up with the different texture on the sides?

    But besides that, I like it a lot.

    it just adds to the visual layering and detail of the design.
    Look at Strange's cape in the film... if you were to make an actual cape, there's no reason you would include the, like, 20 different fabrics they used in the production of the film. But it adds layers and texture and makes it feel more real and lived in.

    costumes that lack details and layers and texture end up feeling very costume-y, or just bland, ergo Superman's Man of Steel costume, or Cap's Avengers suit

    Another description:

    Disappointed the helmet was absent. Could have looked really cool & badass if executed properly. I can live without it, though.

    Hmm, so the concept art isnt the final design.

    The gloves look a lot like the ones on Captain America's Avengers outfit.

    I guess SHIELD made both suits?

    thank god they went with her current suit and not one inspired by her first CM one. Although I have to say that looks fairly modern for the 90s

    They didn't. The movie suit is clearly a mix of both.

    Given that the comic version of the suits helmet seems to be one of the more criticised aspects of the suit I wouldn't mind seeing it swapped out for a gladiator style helmet like you see some Kree wear. I think it would be simpler to adapt and look better on screen imo. Sleek and cool.

    I'd rather she doesn't wear the helmet at all. I'd like them to give her a mask though like classic Ms Marvel had.

    In some of the animated stuff, they make it more of a domino mask. But yeah I agree that I'd prefer that she not wear a mask at all.

    Knowing Marvel, even if they do give her a mask I bet it'll only be for a few brief scenes.

    I'm curious to see what the final design looks like. We've seen before (with GOTG most especially) that early concept art doesn't necessarily line up with the final product.

    To be fair, I kind of get it given that the MCU largely has done away with the notion of Secret Identities. Like the only major film character who has one right now is Spider-Man (and he keeps his mask on in fights). And of course there's Daredevil in the Netflix shows, but Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Danny Rand don't really do anything to hide their identities.

    Masks in the MCU seem to be fit a certain idea. Cap's is just symbolic, Thor's helmet is for ceremonial purposes, Iron Man's is about health/safety concerns, etc.

    Honestly I could deal with the mask if they'd get rid of the faux-hawk hairstyle. I mean I like the shorter hair, but the pseudo-Mohawk just doesn't look good imo.

    thats representative of the books' as well. The Avengers and Marvel in general largely do not operate with secret identities. Thats more a DC thing. Masks are purely for aesthetic's reasons bc most are rarely functional like Star Lord's

    So far, costume looks generic/uninteresting/ Another disappointment after Wasp.

    I find it interesting that the gloves are fingless. Also, I'm digging the costume. Clearly it's the first incarnation of it. I'm sure she'll get the Red/Blue/Gold before long.
