The point is that it is hard to know how cool or ridiculous the costumes are going to look on the big screen. They knew the individual costumes for each of the X-Men
were going to be difficult and distracting so they chose one basic theme (which also made them look more consistent as a team and really paved the way for the look of the comic book versions, both Uncanny
.) They also knew that a black and white costume with a target on the forehead wouldn't be taken seriously or strike fear into the heart of anyone which is why Bullseye
didn't have a costume in Daredevil
. The costumes worn by Batman, Superman, the Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, Daredevil, Dr. Doom, Silver Surfer, Mr Hyde
all worked not only because they looked good and comic-accurate, but they were worn by actors and actresses who gave them credence.
It take just the right actor/actress to put on the red, white and blue. There are few out there who would also be able to look the part of Steve Rogers
, both before as a skinny weakling and after taking the super soldier serum as Captain America
. It would have to be someone with a "classic" look because he was born in the late 20s and frozen for many years. My choices range from very obvious to odd.
He was Jason Bourne, nuff said.
This guy (no pun intended) can go from playing a cross-dresser to an amnesiac to a Napoleonic swordsman to an inventor of the time machine with losing any credibility.
Alan Tudyk: I
think he is under-rated and has more than enough ability to give this character the personality needed. His resume of movies proves that.
My questions now are:
Who would be his opposing villain?
What era would this take place in, modern times of WWII?
Would he have a side-kick?
If so would it be Bucky or Rick Jones?
