MCU Phase 4 New Suit Secrets

Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has brought both stunning upgrades to existing characters like with the Black and Gold Suit in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and entirely new outfits associated with the superheroes who just joined the roster of comic heroes like Shang Chi. Adapting a costume is no easy task, it’s a tough balancing act ensuring that they are comic accurate, yet are detailed enough that they are magnificent to look at.

Like all things in the MCU, a great deal of planning and design work went into each and every costume, but what kind of secrets did the costume designers hide in these new suits? From interesting adaptations like the Eternals costumes taken a cue from the incredible work of Jack Kirby, to the headcanon that Vincent D’Onofrio brought to the Kingpin’s costume when he arrived in Hawkeye- there is a meaning to everything!

Let’s dive right into some fascinating behind-the-scenes stories where we find out exactly how our favorite movies and TV series like Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Loki, and Wandavision drew inspiration from the comics, the entertainment industry, and even the real world.

Beyond just the costumes, let’s also examine how de-aging technologies were used to make Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin appear exactly as we had remembered in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy!
