Of course, with blockbuster superhero movies come new costumes for the heroes. This article lets you in on the skinny for the superhero costumes from the 2012 movie.

New Costumes

Some of the costumes have changed from the previous movies and some have stayed the same. So what are heroes wearing these days and who received a change of wardrobe? Also, check out the trailer from the Avengers website to get a glimpse of some of them in action!


Captain America

Chris Evans Captain America Costume

In the movie, Chris Evans reprises his role as the valorous Steve Rogers. His costume from his 2011 movie featured a World War II look with a very retro style helmet and gloves, reflecting the 1940s time period. The costume is revamped for the Avengers movie, bringing in the style that Captain America is better known for in the comic books. The new look has a more "superhero" feel to it, whereas the one from 2011 had a more "functional" appeal to it.

Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr. Iron Man Costume

The Iron Man suit that Robert Downey Jr. will be donning in this movie looks much like his suit from Iron Man 2, grounding strong roots in the visual style of more recent comics. The model appearing in the Avengers movie bears strong resemblance to the armors used by Tony Stark after he acquired the Extremis Armor. The costume keeps the triangular reactor core upgrade from his last movie and keeps the sleek hot rod colors that fans have come to love.

Mark Ruffalo Hulk Costume

He's big, green and has muscles bigger than Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime. Full clips of the Hulk in action for The Avengers movie have surfaced, and it's hard to see how they can really do anything different with Hulk's costume other than change the color of ripped shorts he wears. Mark Ruffalo has stated that he will be doing all the motion capture for the Hulk, so whatever we get to see of Hulk, it's sure to bear a very humanistic look and movement.

Jeremy Renner Hawkeye Costume

Although Jeremy Renner made a cameo appearance in Thor, the 2012 Avengers movie will be Renner's first official appearance as Hawkeye in Marvel's movie. They have decided to go with a more "realistic" approach with Hawkeye's costume. Many fans may be disappointed to see anything but the classic purple suit, but this costume seems to work for the attitude of Hawkeye. Also, being one of the only two superheroes on the team without superpowers, chemical enhancement, or a high powered suit of armor, it makes more sense to not draw attention. Since photos of Hawkeye are scarce, it's unclear whether he will eventually don his classic purple suit.

Chris Hemsworth Thor Costume

Chris Hemsorth's new Thor costume has subtle changes from the appearance in the 2011 Thor movie. The circles on the costume are sleeker, and some of the edges are less squared from the original. This costume tries to tie together a gritty realistic look with Thor's classic look from the comics. The overall effect seems to be successful with some of the blues being toned down and the removal of gold compared to the comic, being that some of the classic colors used by Thor's costume in earlier artwork may not transfer well to live action.


Black Widow

Scarlett Johansson Black Widow Costume

Scarlett Johansson never needed help to look smoking, but her new outfit from the The Avengers certainly does the young star justice. Black Widow always maintained a sultry secret agent appeal and the costume for the new movie keeps true to the comic. Composed with a black tactical suit, revealing just enough to drive any comic fan wild, Scarlett Johansson is sure to make Black Widow a much more popular character in the Marvel Universe.
